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.

"Many of us write because we are readers and have grown up in a long tradition, and we want to be able to add to that extraordinary flow of interpretations of the world." - Rosellen Brown

I woke up to rain just as the meteorologist had predicted. I had thought about walking to the community center but Michael and I had a conversation a few days ago about how he didn't want me walking in the rain. His reasoning was I could become ill. Well, that is a possibility. Not wanting to create ill-will between us this day, I chose to drive over to the community center.

The common sense comes in, besides Michael's reason, is when riding a motorcycle it is one thing to take off on a trip when it is not raining. Rain may be forecast but if it isn't raining when you begin your journey, you pack for rain and you go anyway. At least you are prepared if in case it does rain.

It is another thing to take off in the rain even if you do have your rain gear on. Who knows when the rain will stop if it ever does. Let me tell you, it is no fun riding in the rain. If the rain is coming down hard, your face feels like it is getting hit by hypodermic needles. You, yourself, still become wet. And, to top it off, your bike gets dirty and you may end up with moisture where you shouldn't have it. Yes, this is a time when I get out the hair dryer and dry all those little nooks and crannies to remove the dampness.

So, using this good common sense along with Michael's admonition, I am driving today.

Okay, so by the time it came around to go retrieve my provisions from the food bank, the rain had stopped and I saw some blue sky peeking out from the clouds. I decided to walk over and I am glad I did. We had talked yesterday that perhaps, we would not go today because we are going to try a new food bank on Saturday because they are giving out meat.

But, today we received some really scrumptious edibles such as salt and vinegar chips, two different kinds of wraps, sushi, asparagus, green beans, a selection of veggies, and chocolate chip cookies. Oh, I was able to have two packages of pizza dough - garlic and plain. I see pizza in our future!

To say the least, today is a very good day.
