Woke up this morning not wanting to eat. I thought about going to McDonalds like I do every Saturday morning but the idea is that food was not appealing. Maybe This fast was a good idea. So for this morning I am not having McDonalds.
I have a few pairs of glasses to make. Nothing pressing. Business was so so this week. Enough to pay the bills so I am not complaining. I am blessed in so many ways.
I finished cutting all the glass for the shades and putting it in order on the table. I need a threaded rod to use with the form and tomorrow I will start the assembly of the shades. Will be happy to get it done.
Son has good friends. He has a good life. I am pleased. He is like me and he is not which is good. Maybe I have broken the behavior pattern or at least lessened its impact and helped create better tools for living for him. He has done a lot on his own that is for sure. I am proud of him.
I am doing well. Still deal with my own demons but we all do. Mine are nothing special. I was feeling guilty this morning about not going to Toms funeral last night. I was not close with him. I knew him and we talked from time to time but not friends in my estimation. We didnít hang out. I donít care for funerals. They are for the living and I didnít know any of his people. My being there would not have added any comfort to those people. I donít need to go to say my goodbyes to him. He was a good man. I enjoyed our trades and conversations. I am sorry he had to go through what he did and I would have liked to see him live to a ripe old age still blowing glass and chasing women but that was not in the cards for him. He did a lot in his life. He did a lot of kind things for people. He made a difference and his work will remind me of him until I die.
Things I am thankful for:
Beautiful fall mornings
Son has a good life
