It was just an ordinary day at work. The morning was fine so I rode to work. It really is hardly far enough to count as exercise but I guess anything is better than nothing. So 6 minutes ride there and 6 minutes to get home. That left me with a good 45 minutes needed and not done. Finished that off on the exercise bike tonight since there was a huge storm this evening.
Well, maybe not so huge a storm in comparison to what I hear is brewing down in the south over the Gulf of Mexico. But here the sky was wild with clouds and it always makes me wonder if someplace near got hit hard by wind or hail.
Work really was quite ordinary today. No great crises. No emergencies or disasters. There are many times when I think I am not thankful enough for the ordinary days that I have.
It seems every day that I am letting someone know that in the fall I will only be in the office two days a week. I think that I am booking way into October for long procedures. I guess the time is coming to sit and evaluate what things I will give up doing. Our new associate is great to have around. I think he will do well and we’ll feel quite confident to move patients over to his care.
Well, now, it is time to get to bed. I could not get to sleep last night so I am super tired tonight. I am hoping for a peaceful and quiet night with a good rest.
First day back at work. Twas a very good full day too. And I am tired.
And a day of waiting for news about a friend’s surgery – and that did indeed go well. He had a lot of folks praying for him and we’ll keep that up till he’s backup on his feet again and then some as he recuperates and maybe does some cardiac rehab.
Had a visit after supper from the great Zaka. He had to come and pick up the things Grandma brought him from Chicago. And have supper. And ice cream. Then the boys discovered the hammock in the back yard and had a ball.
Then I recommenced my evening bike rides. Two weeks in Chicago did nothing form my weight loss program. Riding the Rotary Trail is so nice in the evening. The deer were out on the far side of the river too, coming down for their evening drinks I suppose. I love watching to see what wildlife will show up.
Here I am sitting in Ronin’s room. He is asleep on the couch. The flight arrived on time but of course it is two hours later here than home so it is now past midnight.
Tomorrow we are supposed to go to the beach. It may rain but I think we are going anyway. It is so humid here that I’m not sure a little rain will be noticeable.
I have a whole day to spend with this branch of my family and I will savour every minute of it.
Tonight I went out to finish planting my hanging pots and to sit in my beautiful new garden.
Pictures will be posted soon,but it was too nice to stay inside at the computer.
Now I must find a way to rid the yard of some of those pesky mosquitoes. They make reading outside just about impossible.
