I'll try to keep it short today.
I got up early. Big surprise.
I took a monster-long walk before working from 8 to 2 from home.
I really looked at my neighborhood this morning, and like paging through an old photo album, I let myself notice all the comfortable, familiar things, and I opined about what's changed.
Wild bunnies weren't around when we moved here 19 years ago.
Another Mary Anderson used to live down the street, but she's moved away. She was so sweet.
I walked by our neighborhood pool, and thought about all the sweat equity I put into that summer venture a handful of years ago.
It's good to look up occasionally, just to take notice.
It was so nice to trip across Such a Night today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p9Ko6sGS5E.
It compelled me to remember why people call him the King.
Then it was work time.
The kids went to their dad's for dinner shortly after I was done with work.
As are the weeds.
I watched Jack Goes Boating on netflix. What a great movie, filled with sweet, wounded, tender, tentative characters.
No money spent, no gas burned again today.
Now it's time to relax. And like this day's been so far, I'm keeping it short and sweet.
