I went to night watch last night. Night watch is when a person or entity, like an AA group, takes responsibility for answering the calls received by the Denver Area Central Office for a block of time. One of the groups I attend takes the first Saturday of the month, from 5 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. We have a potluck at someone's house and we take calls. We got a LOT of calls last night. It was fun.
It was hard to show up there with my wacky hair color. BUT, I felt better when I got some compliments - including a totally spontaneous rave from a young man I don't know well. He just said "Wow! You look beautiful! I never realized you have such beautiful eyes!" Now, THAT was cool. So, of course, I like my hair a lot better now.
Another thing I don't like... I probably shouldn't complain about it here...but I will anyway. I realized after a while that I was sober longer than anyone there. I hate it when that happens. I guess I better get used to it though because my hope is that I will never take a drink again as long as I live. One day at a time, by the Grace of God, and just doing the next right thing, I hope to do that.
Now I will go plant the beautiful rose bush I bought yesterday. I will probably take and post pictures later... Note: I posted a close up of a rose - it is now in my garden, and very beautiful. The picture I took yesterday was right after an afternoon shower, you can practically smell it from the computer, can't you?
