Reset - hanging on
Friday, July 05, 2019
It feels like Monday - and I treasure Monday's. It's the day to start over, or do over, to focus on the things that need doing and let the others get away.
Independence Day was a good day - got a few important chores done. One had to do with proceeding on a plan to do solar panels on the roof. A second had to do with completing a contract to buy a condo apartment to replace the multi-storey condo townhouse that we have been living in. The third was to pressure wash the back patio in anticipation of a BBQ session with the next door neighbors.
The best? Having next door friends we've known for something like 30 years over for simple burgers and sausage. Chilly and foggy, so we stayed on the clean patio only long enough to do some cooking. Then inside where it was warm for dinner and conversation. A great evening.
The fog was dense and persistent. No fireworks. A definite shortcoming of this place.
Today I look around, want to clean my desk, update some software, and make some plans for the next month. It feels like a brand new day. Each one is filled with opportunity.
