I have been listening to a 2-hr YouTube video and nearly forgot to write a blog post.
I have been sleeping at least an hour later every morning, and don't know if it's just the time change or if it's me. I don't like to sleep late because I feel my best in the first two or so hours of the day, and really enjoy having at least a couple of good breakfasts.
Joe came by with his girls this afternoon and we had a great visit. There really isn't much for kids to do around here, and they always want to play in the back yard which is just rocks and a very small area at that.
I tried just wearing the older pair of glasses and after walking around Walmart for about 15 minutes I developed the beginnings of a headache. So I went back to the Optical dept. and asked them to put my current lenses into the older frames and now I'm ok. I will never buy the titanium wire framed glasses again - although these older frames aren't as bad as the ones I ruined. Those hurt my head and ears from the time I put them on, and it was never possible to adjust them properly. The older ones seem to fit and feel much better.
I just skipped gym today but since I did a moderate workout last night I'm ok with letting my muscles just rest for a 24 hr period.
Today was a mostly rainy day with some bright sunshine now and then. It really came down all last night and well into the morning. One part of the side yard that was weed free now has green stuff growing. I think it's futile to think they can ask residents to completely remove the grass & weeds until after the rainy season finally ends, and looking at my 15 day forecast doesn't show it ending - maybe a week's relief, but we aren't finished with the rain.
I need to make a visit to Straw Hat Pizza and arrange for our family visit. We had a group text going last night and concurred on some of the details. It will be so good to have all my children and grandchildren together at one time.
This afternoon I asked Joe and the girls how the father-daughter dance went. Evidently each year they have a theme, and this year's was "A night out in Paris". I think the girls tried to wear pretty fancy clothes, but I think Joe would wear the same thing in Paris that he would in NYC, Shanghai, London, or in Sacramento!
