I had a good hour long walk at 9 am with a friend. Time goes fast when you walk and talk.
I checked on my garden plot at our church garden and did some weeding and thinning of the zinnias which were thriving from the seeds I planted two weeks ago.
After a shower and a quick lunch, I went downtown to Hope Ministries where I met a resident who needs to improve her math skills in order to pass the TASC exam--Test of Adult Secondary Credit--the new GED. She has proved to be a quick learner and we are trying to be as efficient as possible in a limited time. I really enjoyed using the experience I have had over the years in this limited situation.
While I was downtown anyway, I browsed at the library bringing home four books which I may or may not read. Years ago I taught a GED class at the library and was happy to hear someone call my name and greet me warmly.
Home again for a phone conversation with my sister, some time reading and napping, fixing supper, and enjoying it with Jim. Laura's nanny sent me a great photo of two of the boys and two other friends emailed with photos and news.
And then such a good day was followed by a night of poor sleep for whatever reason--maybe a short nap that was too late in the afternoon, definitely the sore hip that is often a problem, maybe some difficult memories. It doesn't help to analyze the situation. I am glad today is a day without a schedule. I have no obligations. Today that is good.
