Monday 15

Monday 15- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 47 and 70 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 20 percent, sunny skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 73. Calm wind becoming east southeast between 4 and 7 mph. Tuesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 49. Southeast wind around 6 mph becoming calm.”
Chris came by with my groceries from the USDA food distribution. I think he said that there were 94 folks showing up whereas last month there were 83; times are getting rougher I guess except for bankers and our political leaders, but they don’t live here.
I went for a visit to Ron Dehart’s but on the way I stopped off to feed Princess an apple. Ron complained that it is getting crowded around his part of the desert. There is a new house that was built to the north of his and it blocks the view, plus they keep their lights on all night, bummer!
Then I went over to Mac’s to see how he was doing after his fall a few days ago. He was in bed when I got there and his wife let me in. She is taking good care of him.
I got back home to start digging around under the cement piers that hold up my shop roof on the east side of my home. I wanted to lower the whole structure so that when it rains the water doesn’t build up and just flows off. I spent around three hours digging out dirt underneath the piers getting cuts and abrasions on my right arm and hand; I wasn’t going to use my left guitar playing hand in case the pier fell down. I lowered the whole wall about five inches! I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now and just decided to do it today because of the nice weather. I was sore all over when I got done, I could feel every muscle in my back and shoulders, but it’s done!
I didn’t feel like it but I went on my evening walk and took my camera along.
When I got back I was mighty hungry and cooked up dinner; home fried potatoes, a sausage patty, and two eggs. That did the trick!
I spent the rest of the night going over emails and reading stuff on the web. I was too tired to do anything else.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

I am just a guy out in the desert amazed at the things out here where I live, the folks I call my friends, and this that we call the Internet. I am excited to share them with you!
