A Lazy Day of Reading
Yesterday I went for a badly-timed photo walk. I wanted to escape the gardener's noise, so I had resolved to take my walk when he got here. That is normally in early afternoon. It was very cloudy, with the sun breaking though at intervals. When he hadn't yet arrived by 4 PM, I decided I'd better go anyway. I had been prepared to leave the minute he got here, so out the door I went with my keys and camera, and then it began to lightly rain. So, of course, I had to go back for some rain gear. It only rained on and off, and very lightly, but the sky was awesome. You can also see how all the recent rains have turned the grass at the park from brown to green.
As I was on my way to the park I also took a shot of the oak tree across from my house with the clouds behind me. The gardener's truck is parked in front of my house and my white Volvo wagon is in my driveway.
Later that night, there was a harder rain for a while. I woke up about 8:15, but wasn't ready to start my day, so I turned over and went back to sleep until my husband's voice on the phone in the next room woke me up. I tried to turn on a tape to drown him out, and nothing happened. I took my eye shades off to see the clock and the screen was blank. Oh, no! No power. It was about 9:40. (Hubby had a watch.) He had already called it in on his cell phone, and said they expected it back by 11:30.
At 12:30 it still wasn't on, so I have spent most of the day reading J.D. Robb's Seduction in Death. I couldn't use my computers, but fortunately I didn't lose any work when they shut down. So it was a good excuse to read. The power didn't come on until 2:30. By that time I had eaten some cold chicken, apples, and gluten-free-crackers for lunch and was more eager to finish the book than use the computer. I finished the book at 5:50 and had my latest homemade soup for dinner. Now I'm working again.
How did your day go?
