After yesterday's post, finding this today on Pinterest was rather amusing. I'm not sure if coffee really gives me an extra dose of patience, but it is a better alternative than wine. ha ha!
It's been a mid-July kind of day; hot and muggy. I've been trying to keep the windows closed, but every once in a while I forget and open the front door and the heat comes rushing in. Maybe I should just purpose to enjoy it while it lasts.
Rochester, NY has seen a rough week. Yesterday it lost one of its on-duty police officers to a shooting and this morning a small plane took off from the Rochester Airport and went unresponsive an hour and a half later. It is suspected that the aircraft lost air pressure and experienced a lack of oxygen. The occupants were a Rochester businessman and his wife. Their plane ultimately crashed 14 miles off the coast of Jamaica. There will be no survivors.
Events such as these pop "my little world" back into perspective. I lost a friend this week too. She died of cancer. We weren't particularly close, but were neighbors as teens, went to school together, and I did some babysitting for her years ago. There was a time when we hung out together a little bit and ran errands together. I last connected with her in December when she told me of the diagnosis and said the prognosis wasn't good. Her brother called me yesterday to deliver the news.
The weekend has arrived just in time and it promises to be busy. I hope you have a good one!
