I listen to the chorus of crickets outside my window as the evening settles in. The sky is clouding sporadically, although nothing threatening. The temperature dips a bit as the sun's warmth fades with the light.
I await the arrival of my oldest friend and her eldest daughter as they are driving up from Texas to come visit her mum who fell last Sunday and fractured a hip. Given that the old one has Alzheimers and possibly cancer, treatment options are limited to keeping her comfortable and possibly saying a final goodbye. My heart goes out to them all.
This is the first weekend I have not been at the Man of Steel's in many weeks. It feels a bit odd. I can honestly say I miss his company.
I was able to walk one of my regular routes today with minimal shoulder discomfort. That's a first in almost 4 weeks. And it felt very good to be out and moving again. My activity level has been rather stagnant since the repair job.
