I realized it has been a while since I posted a blog. Is it because I haven't been doing anything?
I guess I posted last Friday about working in the yard in the sunshine. That lovely sunshine lasted one more day, but Saturday was a family day. We attended a memorial service for my Uncle Bill. He had long suffered the destruction of person hood that advanced Alzheimers inflicts, and his body was finally released from the bounds of this earth. We celebrated his life and the remarkable man that he once was. I was in the company of three siblings and three cousins, and we shared some good experiences.
As the rain returned on Sunday and Monday I returned to inside activities. I worked on sewing projects, spent time reading and watching TV and got back to my exercise routines.
Tom made an overnight trip with my brother-in-law to Rockaway to take care of some cabin business. I entertained myself by watching the movie Anna Karenina on Comcast On Demand last night. I liked it more than I thought I would, and the costumes were wonderful!
Today I slept in, got a very slow start to the day and then I went shopping for fabric for my next sewing project, some kitty care products and Easter Bunny surprises. That holiday is not far away!
The Sounders soccer season is back in full stride, with one home league game and one Champions League game so far, both losses. Tonight we were at the stadium for the third game, the second of the quarter finals on the Champions League. The rain that was predicted did not really happen, just a little drizzle, we found dry seats under cover, the Sounders outscored the top Mexican team 3-1, and will advance to the semi-finals. It was a tense but great game! Then we came home and watched much of the game again on TV.
Now it's late and I'm still unwinding. I think tomorrow will be a slow day. More rain is expected. I will do my exercises, read the paper and my book, sit with the kitty, and drink coffee and eat chocolate.
Life is good.
