No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"Character is the center of fiction for me." - Allan Gurganus

I arose at 8 a.m. and did my usual morning stuff. I still feel tired and it's only 9:30 a.m. Today my big project is to do another load of laundry. The fun part, I get to the laundromat and get set up only to find I had left my handbag at home which has my change for the machines; so, back home I go. Soon laundry is merrily dancing around in the machine and I will have clean clothes!

While I was going back and forth to the laundromat, the housing authority maintenance office called to say someone was coming out within the hour to finish up the repairs needing to be done in the apartment. It sure pays to be the squeaky wheel and to have tough skin for the smarmy remarks coming from the repair guys. The other repairs were to cement the crack in the linoleum floor in the bathroom and to put the padding down under the carpet in the bedroom closet and re-stretch the carpet and tack it down. Yippee, I can now put my closet back together.

I had plans to do housework stuff this afternoon but after Michael fed me, it was nap time. In fact, it was naptime for the entire Fricia family. About two hours later we begin to stir. Oh my, I hadn't planned on that.

Tonight I decided to go to the Monday night Al-Anon meeting in Morro Bay. A friend of mine is coming by to pick me up so we will have some time to catch up on things prior to the meeting.

Besides the meeting, the best part was getting to see the waxing moon surrounded by a halo. Tells me Wednesday's storm is on its way.

Since I was out tonight, Michael decided not to cook. Instead I have soup and crackers and other odd things to snack on. Glad to be home with my family.

New Word:

Hebdomadal \heb-DAH-muh-dul\


occurring, appearing, or done every week : weekly

Charles made room in his schedule for hebdomadal visits with his math tutor throughout the semester.

"And still he remembered the Sunday evening, the hebdomadal get-together of his parents' circle of friends." — From Rohinton Mistry's 2002 novel Family Matters

"Hebdomadal" is a rare and curious term describing a basic concept: the calendar week. The noun "hebdomad" (referring to a group of seven or a period of seven days) derives from Greek "hepta," meaning "seven"; that root also gave us "heptathlon," an Olympic event consisting of seven events. One notable use of the word occurs in the name of the Hebdomadal Council, the chief executive body of the University of Oxford from 1854 until about 2000. The Hebdomadal Council managed the school's finances and property, among other things, and was so named for its strict schedule of meetings — of course — just once per week.

So, this is me signing off for another Monday night.
