Cool November Morning
Today is my first day of this week of vacation. Unfortunately, I have to go to court. My homeowner's association is suing someone who refuses to pay their dues ($100. a year!) and the president of the board has asked all of the board to show up for moral support. So I will go and be morally supportive (?) and hope this doesn't take all day. - and as you might guess, there is more to this story than just the $100. a year... but it isn't even worth the space to type it.
I hope that today I will get more information about the nursing school I hope to attend. On Friday I put in some phone calls and some requests for mailed information . I could conceivably get some answers today. I am still praying and still very very excited about the idea.
The picture above is from my run on Saturday morning. A cell phone photo barely begins to do it justice, but there it is anyway.
I don't seem to have much to say this morning. I am just feeling very happy and peaceful. I had a wonderful weekend, full of people I love. Night watch on Saturday was just wonderful, yesterday my son came over, and later someone came over and we sat on the sofa and watched a football game. My house is immaculately clean from all the preparations for Saturday. It is beautiful outside. I still have a lingering cough, but I am not sick like I was just a few days ago. Life is good.
