1. I got to go for a walk, enjoying this absolutely BEAUTIFUL fall day!

2. I had to do some public speaking today (something I normally DREAD) and I had a good time!

What about you? Why makes today a good day for you?

Even the seemingly "nothing" days are good. Today, nothing in particular happened, but I kinda enjoyed that. Yesterday, my wife and I tracked down two old friends, who were in the same health care center recuperating from knee replacement operations. We'd been trying to reach them by phone for weeks with no luck. The day before yesterday, we were able to visit two other friends who we hadn't seen in a long while.. one is the women I've mentioned in other threads who suddenly went blind one day (after not even wearing glasses up to that point.) She was in very high spirits (she's in her mid-90's) because she was feeling good that day. I notice that she corrects herself now when she kept saying, I'ts so good to... pausing where she naturally would say "see you again," and then saying... "have you here again." There is no way we could have lifted her spirits half as much as she lifted ours. That same day, we went to a picnic with one of the church choirs, and we had a great time, with abundant food and friendship. Got a chance to sit and talk with my Messenger friends Joe and Frankie. And then, yesterday, Joe, Frankie and I sang with the Men's Chorus, and Joe and I shared the lead on a song.

Today, I needed just what I got. A chance to finish trimming the hedge, and then watching a Miss Marple movie this evening with my wife.

Life is good.

Jerry

I miss them, but oh! the Silence! It's nice...for a change. By tomorrow I won't know what to do with myself!**bg**

Jerry,

It's so odd how people use figures of speech, or don't use them. I'm blind and I use phrases like, "watch TV" or "see you later" all the time ... but maybe that's because I was born blind and don't think of them as anything other than figures of speech. ...

Sorry, I saw that comment ;) and had to add my two cents. :)

Teresa:

I have other friends who are blind, and they too say, "It's so nice to see you." It just seems natural. They were either blind from birth, or at least for most of their life. I don't know what is harder (never having experienced either.) My Mother's Father went blind in his 80's, and became a very bitter man. I guess blindness is like other physical handicaps. How you deal with it depends on your attitude toward life. My Grandfather who went blind was always pretty bitter and hard-hearted. His blindness just made him moreso.

One of the people I most greatly admire is Kathy Leigh Johnson.. a wonderful woman I met at the Adirondack Folk/Gospel Festival many years ago. Kathy had everything imaginable going against her. Blindness was only part of the problem. And yet, she persevered and was living a very positive life when I met her. A few years after that, she met a wonderful young man who was a minister (and also a musician) and they wre married. He is blind, too.

For those of us like me, who have been blessed with wonderful health, there is no way of truly understanding what it is like to have a seriously limiting handicap. But, it seems like everything else... you find people who live fully productive, rich lives who are handicapped, just as you meet people in perfect health who bitch constantly.

Only goes to show.

Kathy had a machine that could "read" letters for her, which made it easy to communicate. She also had a computer that could do the same.
How great!

Jerry

It was a good day for me for a lot of reasons: temps fell well below 100 for the first time in a while and I was able to leave the windows open, fresh air blowing through, sound of the fountain filling the house until noon; I started another writing class today with a wonderful teacher and enjoyed every minute of the 3 hours; came home, got a bite to eat and then went to a new session only a miraculous 15 miles from me, with really good musicians and great music; and...it's still 2 days until I have to hae gallbladder surgery. This was a very good day.

Floors are swept.
Visuals for my presentation were a hit!

I was able to rearrange my schedule so that I can do something in the middle of the day that is important to me.   :)

I'm on the 3rd day of a 2 week holiday. I've achieved lots of little things that needed doing - like adding a pocket to my summer waistcoat, shortening a pillow case so it fits a smaller pillow, rearranged stuff, messed up stuff, read a few books, done a bit of shopping and packed almost everything (except might gear & toiletries bag) for a festival that JennyO & I are heading to tomorrow. Lots of great company & music in a wonderful location.

Today is a good day for 2 reasons.....

1. The out pouring of care, concern and love for Kendall here on the Mudcat gives me faith in humanity.

2. While I was dusting (dusting around here is a good thing in itself...but I digress), I found a little, square, purple sticky note written in the hand of my very favorite 12 year old. It reads: "Thank you for taking very good care of me. You rock on the violin. Love you. Bye. Veronica"

Today is a good day because I finished an assignment ahead of time (YEA ME!), there was a 4 month old baby in the teaching lounge for a bit today and she was SOOOOOOOOOO SWEET...a head full of dark, dark hair and big, bright eyes....very alert! What a precious little thing she is! Another good thing about today is that my blood sugars have all been running normal (some lows..but not too bad) and physically I feel GREAT! I was out taking photographs of the sunflowers up in the field, romping with the dog...and just having some fun! Soon I will settle into the final stages of touch ups for my presentation tomorrow!

I finally got started on the "putting the house back together" project. Never did find Dad's will but I started to throw out things I don't need and will never get more that 25 cents at a house sale. Got a romantic e-card from an admirer. Who knows what possibilities tomorrow mat bring.

I spent some time thinking how wonderful it was to take care of twin boys even if they did keep me up all night. Babies are so sweet and smell so good. Mostly they are tomorrow.

Yup Amos. It was a bit scary being in a tornado warning / tornado watch area for a couple of days, and some of the high winds were also a bit scary, but we were very fortunate. No damage to any of our stuff, and no damage to life or limb.

Today has been a good day for painting outdoors with a cool(ish) breeze playing about the patio area. I'm enjoying the painting a lot. I've started exploring the design esthetic of the Arts and Crafts Movent from the second half of the 1800s and the first few decades of the 1900s. I'm using it for painted canvas table mats. It's a lot of fun.

This movement, by the way, is a very interesting one to read about. It had many philosophical similarities to other movements that have produced a lot of beautiful designs, such as the Shaker Movement and the Arts and Crafts Guilds of pre-industrial Europe.
