When I got up this morning I had to decide whether to go to the gym, or to stay home and do some deep cleaning which needs to be done. I really don't feel like going to the gym yet, but soon, maybe this weekend. I did 2 loads of laundry and hung them on the line, and cleaned the bathroom. Then when it came to moving on to another room I just wasn't up for it!
I did make a quick trip to Michael's to cancel the free drawing class I signed up for, and to pay for next week's painting class. On the 24th, as I think I mentioned, they are offering classes for 1/2 price but you have to reserve the dates when you pay. I'm not sure how far out I want to commit. I love the class and have learned a lot that I'd never know otherwise but there is still so much I don't have a clue about. Such as why do you use one brush over another? I also realize I'm woefully short on paint colors, and I know you can mix several together to get the desired effect, but mixing 2 or 3 is enough for me. I will wait until the Level 1 acrylic paints are on sale before I spend the money. I will definitely continue trying to paint even if I don't go to a class every week. I had several items in my cart and took them out before I hit the cash register, although I was enchanted by the jar candles with pumpkin spice aroma.
I'm feeling a lot better although I still get tired fast. And I can't eat enough to fill me up for more than an hour. I wonder why the huge appetite.
I think the guy who has been at Ed's house the past week was a visitor, probably from out of town, and possibly a relative. They were outside this morning and Ed was talking up a storm, about his favorite subject - cars, engines, fixing said engines, troubleshooting, etc. Maybe they just went somewhere for the day, but I have the feeling the guy is gone. Whatever the situation it sure was nice of him to come and stay with Ed for a few days.
I went to the Weather Channel's website to see what we could expect for the next 15 days (temps back in the 90's) and a story was headlined, "Mountainside Collapse Caused 500 ft. Wave in Alaska, and More Could Happen!" I tried to read the story but the damn weather channel has everything programmed so you can listen to someone reading it for you. I finally shut off all the arrows that indicate they are going to read the story. That makes me really angry and most news sites do the same, although with most of them you can opt out of the professional oratory and read the story in print yourself.
So I haven't been able to find out much about where the 500' wave was, damage done, and what more could happen. It's frightening to think of what the weather is becoming and the damage we are going to suffer from it.
This weekend I would like to get outdoors and try out my old Fuji camera now that the battery is inserted properly. In the old days I will have to say I usually set up a photograph very well - and those were the days of film. I'm sort of astonished when I see some of the old photos. But when I had a few of the Alaska pictures blown up and now I can see the focus of the picture, the detail, the balance, etc., I think I'm doing pretty well without good eyesight! Wonder what it would be with 20/20!
I notice that the car is back in Ed's driveway, so maybe they just went out somewhere and the guy is still staying there. I used to make fun of my Mom when she watched and wondered what was going on in a neighbor's place. Good lord, have I turned into my Mother?
