Whew! What a day!

For some reason I slept really well and woke up ready to rip. This is new! Don't know why and I'm not asking, all I know was I had energy and I wanted to put it to good use (but not clean house, 'cause I didn't want to ((giggle)). So, at 7:30am, Sheba and I went for a brisk Fall walk. What a gift to get up so early and catch the beginnings of a new day. In the park was one deer. We didn't see him and he didn't see us. Then all of a sudden he bolts and runs right in front of us...I mean I could have touched him!! I don't know who was more astonished, he or I. You may ask, "What about Sheba? How did she react?" Sheba, bless her doggie heart, was more interested in sniffing the grass where other dogs had visited. She missed the whole thing! Then when the deer was far away from us, but close enough to see the pure white tail wagging, she runs to catch it. Silly Sheba. Later on I met my mother and daughter and grand daughter for my birthday lunch. Four generations! Lots of pictures taken and much conversation around babies, birthing, and parenting. I thanked my mother for having me. She was touched. It was almost as exciting as seeing a deer's white tail so close up it could be caressed. Now, 7:30pm, I am dancing! I pulled out a cassette my daughter mixed back in the late 80's and am playing it. Whoops, wait a minute...that knee of mine is reminding me that enough was enough. No problem. I'll chair dance. From the waist up I can move and grove. I think I'll go over to Chili's Sauce and see what music he's playing tonight. I hope tomorrow brings more of the same, but if not, that's OK. Today was glorious.
