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.

Another Thing About a List

"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." Rudyard Kipling

I don't know why I didn't think about checking this list as I was writing about list in yesterday's entry.

For whatever reason I felt a nudge, so I opened my Microsoft Outlook program. I realized I had not checked it in days. I am overdue on several items that need to be taken care of. Maybe I need to stop using this task list and put everything over to my paper PDA. However, I have been known not to check it on a daily basis either. Oh, what I am I to do?

Another Anniversary

It is hard to believe it has been 11 years since the original heart rending of America by the two planes who hit the World Trade Center (WTC), the plane that crashed into the Pentagon, and the plane which crashed in the field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

It was quiet around the burg but in the larger cities ceremonies took place. In Santa Maria (Santa Barbara County), two of the newest fire stations had ceremonies since they each have a piece of the damaged metal from the WTC.

In watching the news tonight, it seems the ceremonies are quiet and smaller than those leading to this year's anniversary. It is sad. To those who had loved ones die in this tragedy they still grieve and probably always will on this date. The will grieve on their loved one's birthdays and other anniversaries of their life. My prayers go out to each and everyone.

In my mind, it seems appropriate to slowly begin to move towards present time. I feel we have to let them go to the deity of their personal spiritual tradition. Those who died will never be gone because they will always be alive in our hearts.

We, the living must get on with living.

What About Today?

I'm not feeling all that whippy. That said, Michael did gently guide me out the door so we could walk to the library and return books and DVDs. It was nice once we got out. We walked 1.5 mile which is good for both of us.

On the way back from the library, we found a stack of "free" stuff. I found a 10' tape measure. Michael found three containers of 35 mm black and white film. My only wonder is whether the film is still good. I guess we won't know until I take some photos. I just hate to waste some good photo ops on bad film.

I've stopped using my 35 mm camera because of the cost of film and the processing of said film. I've been fairly happy with the camera in my cell phone so I haven't missed the actual camera.

Back home, I took a nap and meanwhile Michael got busy and cleaned up the bathroom sink and his side of the counter top. He also went to the storage unit to do some organizing there. He found stuff to throw out and some stuff came into the apartment.

I feel the walk took whatever energy I did have out of me. I had planned to clean out Bailey's litter box and prepare a new one for him. Then I was going to mop the bathroom floor. Oh well there is always tomorrow.

Michael wasn't feeling well come dinner time. Luckily we had leftovers and I assisted him with getting things together. In fact, neither of us felt all that well, and we are going to call it a day.
