Once again the prompt is asking me to look back. Oh, 2 days, okay maybe I can easily do that. Then again the short term memory is the first to go, isn't it? (Looking up at the title again to remind myself of the prompt.)
Today is Monday, June 18, 2012 so two days ago would have been Saturday, June 16, 2012. I am quick like that!
Saturday was a very hot and very humid day here in mid-Michigan and Roomy and I had a few yard chores to tackle as well as enough time allocated to relax and enjoy the day. The morning found us sipping coffee and chatting while we watched the bazillion birds drop in and out of the back yard gathering worms or pieces of straw or whatever and flying off with their treasures. The sparrows who have nested and laid eggs under my petunias in the window boxes on the barn, flew in and out a hundred times, maybe the eggs are not eggs anymore. We watched a couple of bunnies, ummmm, doing what bunnies do often right in the middle of our yard and then just hop away. I think I muttered something about them being exhibitionists or something and of course, my favorite, the hummers flying in for a sip or ten and then zooming off to the next feeder or flower.
Roomy re-seeded the area of the lawn that isn't wanting to grow back from the cement work and I did some weeding and some moving around of the potted plants. I treated the pool with some stain remover and skimmed it and took a dip. We took a lot of breaks and puttered the afternoon away.
Dinner was the D-Railed Bar and Grill in beautiful downtown Durand for a really good sammy and pepper balls and sweet tater fries. I also enjoyed the best, yes the best, Mojito I have ever had! Delish! Good service and really friendly place to hang out for a quick meal or just to hang with friends, I imagine. If we ever get some friends, we might take them there.
Two days ago I was younger than I am now and I will be older again tomorrow than I am today, maybe. No guarantees about that, of course. Every day I seem to be reminded that time is rushing by and life needs to be lived out loud. I spent some more time trying to convince Roomy to give his notice and officially retire NOW. I find time almost every day to work that in to some conversation. He really needs to be done working, it's too much for his feet and I would love for him to be more mobile and have much less pain. He could do that by NOT standing in a cherry picker bucket all day 5 days a week. Not good for the old and severely messed up feet!
That's it! Two days ago was just as boring and just as wonderful as today has been so far. Summer is here and I am not missing any of it. ♥
