So much cooler today....hallelujah! I feel like I have had a bit of a reprieve before the next heat wave hits us. The day was overcast and we got just a bit of rain in the late afternoon....doesn't rain smell amazing? I love the earthy smell after a light rain that lingers in the air afterward. There is something so cheering to me about that smell. O how I love rain.
One more sleep until The Son arrives...actually he arrives about the time I am going to want to be going to sleep again. My husband is going to be a wreck at church the next morning after such a late night pick up at the airport. I will have The Son's snack all ready for him so he can eat as soon as we get him back here and not waste time creating something edible when I will be so tired.
Today I got a major burst of energy in the coolness of the day, so I did all the cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping along with paying a late arriving utility bill and heading out to the thrift store with some donations. It was a bit much and I am tired now that dinner is over. BUT I need to do the ironing so that I can stay on my feet for an hour or two and keep that blood sugar in line. I think I will sleep well tonight despite my excitement over seeing my son for the first time in over a year.
I did a lot today, BUT what I am the most proud of is that I overcame some of my technological challenges this afternoon and actually downloaded an update to a computer programme all by myself!! hahaha My husband always does those things for me because usually I am in a hurry to get whatever it is updated and want to use it immediately. Also, because the updates for this particular programme don't happen very often, I can't seem to remember the steps to make it happen. I can't find where I have stored things and even if I make it to the right place I can never find quite the right file, or push just the right instructive key or understand the instructions should I actually stumble across them in my frustrated key pushing. Today I decided it is time to start becoming more independent and do some of these things that are so simple IF you know what to do. And now I DO know! I am proud of me. The downloads and updates were installed just fine despite a few of my blunders along the way. Yay me!
It has been a busy, good day and now I must get on my feet and get the ironing on the go. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
