At a meeting last night, I ran into a friend I haven't seen in several weeks. She stumbled into some problems but is back on track now, looking healthy and apparently feeling pretty good. Even when trying our best to avoid it, we do fall into a bad place sometimes. It's encouraging to see someone return from the troubling dark space and get their life back in order again.
W is busy catching up on email or writing... doing something quiet in an other room. When she's finished and her mom is up and fed, we have a bunch of errands to take care of. No real plan of what to do first but it'll all work out somehow. I know she has a dept. store coupon which expires today so that'll definitely be on the list somewhere. Need to pick up some paint for the frames which are nearing completion, get some garden supplies, maybe groceries... I don't know, the list could probably be extended but there are things to catch up on around here as well.
Had another successful day of exercise before breakfast. Today was upper body with weights. It's getting easier so I'm thinking it may be time to increase each of the reps pretty soon. Getting easier must indicate improvement, right? I don't, however, seem to notice any real increase in general stamina or energy. I don't expect to feel 20, 30, or even 40 again but on the other hand I don't intend to let the heart problems turn me into a couch potato.
Sounds quiet in the basement so I guess it's time to empty the washer and load up the drier. Then maybe a visit to the yard with a cup of coffee to watch the plants grow. ;-)
