What two posts, two days in a row??? I know I am feeling a bit crazy today. I had all sorts of cleaning plans for outside today, but I woke up to this. Rain, rain and more rain. It was lovely. There was a gentle rumble of thunder, just enough to set the mood, but not scare the pants off you.
The rain went on for several hours. Really, I was so happy, I get so sick of the sun and the intensity of the heat here in Florida. A dreary, cloudy, rain filled day sounded perfect to me. I really should live in the Northwest where days like this are common.
My oldest son was at school, my youngest taking a test on the computer, my husband riding his stationary bike upstairs, so I had a bit of time to myself. To celebrate I lit my Mother's Day stress re-leaving candle from my oldest son, who by the way causes me a great deal of stress. I poured a second cup of tea, and ate my breakfast while crocheting the border on my vest. Ah....peace. Not much of that around here, so I grab it when I can.
After a wonderful talk with my sister Claudia, I decided the blissful time had to stop. I grabbed old shorts and a raincoat, and went outside to clean and de-mildew my outside furniture. Rain just means I have to spend less time rinsing everything off. So a peaceful morning and a big chore completed, not bad.
Today is my parents 66th wedding anniversary. When I went to visit my Mother she didn't know what day it was and really did not seem to care. Sad. But 66 years with the same person is frankly amazing if you ask me.
Claudia told me I had to share my computer crashing story with all of you. Do not download any email with UPS in it. I did and my computer crashed and it took everything with it. My computer repair guy, Andy said it is the worst virus he has seen, and it took a really long time to clean up the disaster this virus left. I guess this info is all over Facebook and such, but since I am rarely on Facebook, and we do UPS things, I got caught. We were not online for two days, so my youngest had to miss several classes that he takes online. Beware of UPS anything on your computer!!!
I will be crazy busy this next week as my kids are taking exams, and my oldest son is graduating on the 7th. We are having a party for him on the 9th, thus all the cleaning that is being done. If they already have their cap and gown, there is a good chance they are actually graduating, right? Just kidding.
Life is changing so fast. Good friends are ill, best friends are moving. My oldest leaves for Ohio State in 2 1/2 months. Change is good, right? At least that is what they say even if it isn't feeling so good at the moment.
