The day dawned dark and dreary, the kind of weather where sleep struggles to keep control and the mind remains foggy long after the morning dose of caffeine should have taken over. Only the ringing of the phone kept me from giving in to the slumber. Of course the number on the other end was unfamiliar and the caller didn't bother to leave a message. I decided to take a shower and get my day underway.
Since time was plenteous and my check was waiting at the nursing home, I put on my Big Girl Pants and set out to turn in my badge and key fob. I took along the pencil/crayon sharpener purchased the other day at Walmart for My Coloring Friend. I'd been nervous about showing my face, but got a decent reception from those with whom I'd worked. I even got a hug from one. My Coloring Friend was happy to see me and before I left was sharpening a few of her favorite colors. I hope to visit her again soon.
On my way home I stopped by my friend Deb's house to say hello and see how her garden was growing, and this afternoon, when the skies once again grew dark and dreary, I tipped over on the couch and went to sleep.
