I am going to take a bike ride this morning before work - while it is still relatively cool. There is nothing like the exhilaration of a cool blast of air in the face as you pick up your speed on a bike... even better when you are heading down a big hill. 30 + mph on a bike feels GOOD!
I am looking forward to the 4th of July holiday - even though I dislike the local yokel fireworks. I love the professional displays, but do not care for the ones under my bedroom window... set off by people who apparently don't want to burn down their own house, so they travel a few houses down. I have an AA picnic to attend and then a neighbor's party in the evening.
There is not much going on. I am grateful to have a lack of drama in my life today. Staying sober, one day at a time, keeping my own side of the street clean, makes life pretty simple. Oh sure, there are the occassional complications, but for the most part, there is a wonderful lack of drama.
"AA has taught me that I will have peace of mind in exact proportion to the peace of mind I bring into the lives of other people, and it has taught me the true meaning of the admonition 'happy are ye who know these things and do them.' For the only problems I have now are those I create when I break out in a rash of self-will." -- Alcoholics Anonymous (3rd ed.) p. 551 (Freedom from Bondage)
