Slipping through a Sunday

Leave a comment

An early start on a Sunday morning always feels good, to begin with. But when I slipped on a muddy spot and thought I was going to do a butt plant, I wondered briefly. Thankfully I did hold enough balance to remain upright after what would have been a YouTube moment. A much better result than finding my backside in the mud.

I guess I got all the accidental spills out of the way yesterday. At least I hope so. It’s nice to see I was able to preserve a lot of that fresh topsoil and seed despite those heavy rains yesterday.

Sunday’s also remind me of Sundays in the Park at Northside in Ocean City. It’s a beautiful spot that is very well kept and highly used from sunup to sundown. I wish we could keep the rest of our communities as clean as we do the parks.

While mowing the backyard today I thought about the weekend spent working. I’m not complaining about it and feel good about the accomplishments. But I do need to unwind and starting off the workweek tonight isn’t going to allow for that. So I guess I’ll have to mix in some fun during the week.

Tomorrow I hope to get out and about a little bit and get back to what I find beautiful about this area I live and grew up in. Maybe a morning ride if the sunrise looks good.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • July, a good month for a comeback effort.
  • I think I’ll try to grill out at least 2-3 times a week till it gets cooler.
  • I thought the deck we put up a long while ago would last forever, I was wrong. But that allows for a new design someday in the future.
  • When a company calls you to schedule an install and you say that day isn’t good and they reply are you going to be away on vacation? It sends up real caution flags. When that same company calls the day they are supposed to come and can’t make it more caution flags appear. When said company does come and does a sloppy job you throw in the towel. Well Lowes, you have now joined Home Depot and Walmart as big box stores I won’t shop at again. And for the record I never brought a thing from Walmart.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
