I’m a little tired, yesterday I had to run errands to the bank and then go to Wally World. Since we came home Lisa and I have both been coughing and running a little bit of a fever. Add to that my vertigo my ears are hurting and the drainage is giving me a sore throat. (I do paint a beautiful picture don’t I?) For the last number of years, I’ve had to walk with a cane. Not so much to hold me up, but mostly to help me maintain my balance. Someone at the bank commented me on losing weight. To which I cynically replied, that it’s not of my own doing, it’s just me slowly self-destructing.
I’m sitting on the front porch today. It rained last night and for a good part of this morning. But the temperature is cool and pleasant, with the lightest of breezes. The towns not sleeping, I suppose it’s just resting. Most everyone left for work this morning, while the golf cart crew are huddled inside because of the weather. I figured since Lisa decided to play the TV at a reasonable volume, I’d just sit here on the porch to avoid the occasional raindrop.
Still feeling a bit feverish I do have my semi-annual check up with my cardiologist tomorrow. Such things used to frighten me, but after this many years I take whatever news I get in stride. But time is nobody’s friend, least of all mine. I suppose that’s why I’ve learned to live in the moment, appreciating most everything I see. Watching the occasional log truck drive by or a fancy car leaving the courthouse. We all have some sort of place. Rather it’s providing for our families, creating a career, or just reflecting. Still never forget to appreciate these moments. Focus on the moment and take life as it comes.
