January 15, 2019-
Yesterday, I rushed about, in the morning, to get an essential oil blend to a young friend suffering from a health ailment not normally associated with the young. I hope the oil will help. More potentially problematic was getting to my own appointment, halfway across the Salt River Valley. I was twenty minutes late, but had been able to message the office, as to my predicament. No worries and I emerged with a clean bill of dental health, for another four months.
On the way up to the cemetery where Penny is laid to rest, I was obliged to stop, as the funeral procession of another soul passed. I could hear the proceedings of the person’s ceremony, as I communed with my beloved, some fifteen minutes later. Each one of us ought to be able to expect a dignified send-off, and someone to keep us in loving memory. Of course, what one gets in that regard, depends on what one has given.
I went up to Cave Creek, for lunch, with a trio of pleasant eateries on my short list: Local Jonny’s, my favourite, was suitably packed; Big Earl’s, always offering a warm greeting, also offers food too heavy for my needs at that time; Divine Bakery was thus my choice, with no other customers when I walked in, but five people entering, as I left. In between, was the best quiche south of Rustic Pie Company (Prescott’s best) and a delectable cannoli.
Today the rain came down in buckets, as unusual as the snow that hit the central part of Arizona on Saturday night. We can expect such moisture in July and August, but not so much in winter. These are not “conventional” times, though. Besides, there has been a lot of discussion about the fate of our larger reservoirs, with Lake Mead, which got a fair amount of rain today, also, being Ground Zero in the drought watch chronicles.
It mattered little to us, ensconced in the classroom and taking our post-lunch walk around the main building. Our life today revolved around getting more familiar with talking electronic pads- giving voice to those without the ability to speak, themselves. I recognize the urgency of this, and am giving quick study to mastering the use of these devices.
My knee has been better, of late, with ongoing exercises and essential oil treatments. There are a few exercises in the adaptive P.E. class, to which we take our students, which will require more acclimating, but I am getting there. Now it’s time to head over to Planet Fitness.
