As I sit with my glass, okay my second glass, of a very nice Cabernet, I'm thinking of all that went on today.
I reconnected with a New Jersey cousin that was a few years older than me but one that I only have good memories of as I was growing up. We went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade one year and had lots of holidays together. There were so many family gatherings back then and I miss them. As the years go on I remember and treasure those past times even more. I'd love to visit him and his family soon and not waste more time before meeting again. How fun that would be! I have to make it happen!
I tried to find a 50mm lens for my camera in a local camera shop but was unsuccessful. I'll have to wait till next week, but I did find a new walking trail to take Norman to and we enjoyed meeting other dogs and their owners as we walked along the way. Days just don't come more beautiful than today for being outside.
Oh, but before that I checked the Tahoe and found the coolant compartment was bone dry which beckoned me to the store to purchase some coolant and pour some into its place under the hood.
All this to say that, sigh, I haven't had to worry about these types of things alone in quite some time. It was a reminder that I only have myself to rely on and solve problems when they come up.
I've done it before though, and I can do it now.
I was happy with my sense of well being. My peace. Really, it's just stuff. Though I don't like it when "stuff" doesn't work or is broken, I know it's only a matter of time before it will be repaired again.
And I'm really hoping the refrigerator is beyond repair and I have to get a brand new one! (Fingers crossed!)
Hoping anyone reading this has a wonderfully blessed day.... !
