Looking forward to the future
Saturday, June 22, 2019
Despite all that is going on with my body and health lately, I am determined to make the best of the future.
I didn't get a nightly walk on but I did get my steps in that's to two phone calls, lol. Walking around my brother's house and talking.
I did three loads of laundry. Changed the sheets on my bed. Was totally exhausted. I laid down to rest a short time. Then my son called. He was caught in 70+mph winds and horizontal torrential rain coming home from work. He had pulled off in a church parking lot alot with about a dozen people who were trying to stay safe. He said the wind was so strong it actually moving the car. About 15 miles away it blew a semi over on the I24 Ohio river bridge. Then in the other direction another semi was blown over.
I was watching the weather channel and telling him what was going on. He had to dodge trees and lots of debris plus make a detour to get home because of roads closed by trees down. He made it home. No power in the area plus no cell service. So no further word.
I was talking to a friend on Facebook and she asked me to call her. I'm glad I did. We've made plans to meet up later when we're in Florida. She's also invited me to visit her in her home in Virginia. We shall see how this goes. I love meeting up with my friends. I met her one evening walking on the beach. We talked like we had know each other forever. I also have another friend in Florida who comes to visit me.
I'm anxious to get home and work on my cookbooks and genealogy. So much to do.
I'm going to try the gym and see if I can handle that. If not that will be canceled. If it's doing more harm than good no point in paying for it and not being able to enjoy it. Time will tell.
As for now I'll just do my best. I have so many places I still want to walk. So much I want to do. So much to learn. My friend said she'd introduce me to Indian cuisine and culture. I have no place nearby at home to try Indian food so this is exciting. I love learning about people and their experiences.
I love life even with the current issues. God gave me these days and experiences for a reason. He gave me my friends for a reason.
My bff needs prayers please. She has 3 small aneurysms with seizures and tremors that keep getting worse. The meds are way to strong and she can't take them. Thank you.
