Was up late last night reading. Maybe it was the evening walk or my interest in the book but I didn’t turn off the lights until well after one. Still had a good sleep. Woke a few times from dreaming but right back to sleep.
Talked to my son last night and helped him sort through an electrical problems he was having after hanging new lights. Nice he called and asked. Nice to share things with him.
It has been such a beautiful fall so far. Perfect. If it was like this year round it would be my idea of heaven. I love the light also. The sun is not directly overhead anymore so the light is this kind of warm yellow all day with a temperature to match. Just feels and looks warm and comfortable. Also makes me think of winter……well not winter but it evokes feelings from me. Maybe it is also the movement I see. The squirrels running around burying nuts and getting nests ready for the long sleep. Maybe the birds I see flying south for the winter. I think maybe winter had some good memories for me. Don’t care really……just good feelings.
Had a lot of glasses to make yesterday. Need to finish them today. Good problems to have…..
My walk last night was really good. First time in well over two years I walked a mile and noticed a definite lessening of the pain and muscle exhaustion. I did make one stop at ¾ of a mile to order take out for dinner but still it was a real improvement over two years ago. I really came close to losing my ability to walk. It was scary and I felt very alone. I didn’t know what would happen to me or my business. I was scared. I know it will be a while before my legs feel more normal. It has taken two years to just get this far. I will take it as far as it will go.
Things I am thankful for:
One mile walk in under 30 min.
Beautiful fall days
