LEARN TO B E CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
Melting with the heat that is. This morning I had to meet a client at the local granite yard and when I stepped out of the car, I was nearly knocked down by the heat and humidity. Thank goodness I was wearing shorts and sandals. Ever been to a granite yard? This place has hundreds of slabs of granite to select from. You walk around the yard looking at them all and trying to pick one that works. Susan had already been there so she showed me the ones she had written down. Then I saw the perfect slab for her, Golden Dunes. We had to go further into the yard to look at the slabs that were still available. The yard man came over and flipped them so that we could see more of the one we liked. I say flipped but try doing that with a 1000 lb slab of granite or whatever it weighs. After about 30 min, I decided I had as much fun there as I was going to have. I was starting to wilt and needed something to eat. I headed for home and grabbed a fiber one yogurt. Then an apple with peanut butter and then a piece of string cheese. Not good. my stomach still needs somethng else and my points are climbing.
You can go online and google granite and see many of the pieces available for countertops, hearths, etc. IT's the big thing around here now to get granite in your kitchen.
Last night we went to see Grease at the local college theater. Now this theater is not your average theater. Built about 15 years ago, it is state of the art and the whole community pitched in to build it. We bought signature seats as did many others which helped pay for it. The entire cast of young adults was extremely talented and it was a fabulous show! The funny thing about this place is it is located in Niceville, Florida. Yes there is a Niceville. I can imagine big name groups that we get in here and broadway shows; what they must think when they find out they are going to Niceville, Fl. And then they get off the airplane which lands on the Eglin AFB Runway, brought in by AF controllers and it's in the middle of nowhere. It is on the military reservation so when you leave the airport, there is nothing but highway and trees for several miles until you get to some sort of civilization. If you come in at night, it is even kind of scary. I love living here!
We have a chamber of commerce ribbon cutting at 3:00 and I have to get ready for that. I imagine they will have food so my day might be a point flop, but I'll try not. Later.
