In the morning, I love to lounge on my new cabana chair on the patio facing all my flower planters while I sip coffee and watch the birds. I have my waterfalls on too. I've been getting up early to exercise before it gets too hot. Right now it is 89 but hopefully the next week will be cool. I am running much faster but now that my watch is tracking every move by GPS, I see how slow I must have been before. I was hoping to be even faster. But now I am truly running, not doing some spastic, arm swinging race walking.
I visited my friend who right now is in the hospital having a possible fungal lung infection checked out. We watched Precious, a 8 year old movie I never saw before about a hopeless, overweight Harlem girl who finally finds kindness and self-respect. Her abusive mother was played by a great actress, who really deserved her academy award.
On the Fourth, we cooked on the grill for Shanna and Naomi's family. The kids loved playing in the cabana chair. We had it facing away from us for some privacy. It was a nice day.
If it doesn't rain tomorrow, a trip to the beach wit a bicycling buddy.
