Unfortunately it wasn't a just go away and relax vacation. It was be there for someone else vacation. I did get out of town. I did meet lots of people who were strangers to me. Spent some quality time with those I am close to. And on and on. I am sure you get the gist of my very vague post. Being out of my usual comfort zone gave me some thinking time too. Time that I was able to reflect on things going on in my head and in my heart. I can honestly say I really have no desire right now to be dealing with these things in my head or in my heart. I would so much rather just be having fun and enjoying all of my life right now. I gave some thought to this blog. I want it to be a little something more than just erotic writing. I know so many come by just to read those stories, and I truly hope I have written them well enough to be given the honor of read all the way through by lots and lots of people who have never commented (and all of it is in addition to all of my wonderful commentors to this blog).
I took a little vacation. Not that anyone really needed an explanation for my absence. But there it is. I am choosing not to advertise when I go on vacation. Someone I know did that, and while they were on vacation, they got robbed. True story, it really does happen. But now that I am back, I am happy to report that I took a vacation.
I've found in retirement anything out of the routine schedule seems much bigger than before my retirement. I hate that. I'm going to have to clean my bathroom and dust in the same day and I feel pressured. We have company arriving tomorrow from Wichita Falls, TX and Denver. I thought they were arriving on Wednesday but I was wrong. They're arriving on Tuesday, thus the pressure. We're going to see if we can cool off those Texans. I'm a little disappointed that it looks like temperatures will be in the low eighties. I would have preferred high seventies, but I suppose when you've been having temperatures well over one hundred for days on end the low eighties will be fine. They're in such a drought in Texas they will enjoy seeing how green things are in Oregon. Even though we've been here seven years I never tire of seeing the beautiful hanging baskets everywhere you go here. They're so refreshing. This is a picture I made last summer but I don't have time this morning to run out and make new ones. Remember, I have to clean the bathroom and dust today. On Main street in our town they have double hangers on the lamp posts with two of these hanging on each post. How about petunias in August? Have a good week. I probably won't be around until after my company leaves on Friday.
As far as my health has gone, I have my good days and I have my bad days. I just take it in stride. I know that my body is fully capable of healing itself and so I am just eating healthy, taking herbs and supplements and trying to get enough rest. And of course being in the sunshine with my garden helps too.
