I woke up in the middle of the night to pouring rain. It was pounding on the roof and on the skylight. The rat-a-tat-tat was soothing and soon and I drifted back to sleep, warm and cozy under the blankets. About 7 I got up and there was a swirling frost on the skylight.
The day continued as most, Mike sat, and read for a while, then I fixed breakfast and cleaned the kitchen. Mike needed to work on his chainsaw to get it ready to go into the repair shop, and he came into the house and said, “After we drop this off, let’s get something to eat.” I was okay with that and off we went. Mike doesn’t drive anymore and I am needed to take him to various places. After we got to the hardware store, and Mike talked with the repair people, they were able to fix the saw within 30 minutes. Leaving the store, Mike wanted to go to Taco Bell, not my favorite but it’s what he wanted and so that’s where we went.
While we were eating, Mike was complaining he was extremely hungry at the house. When I asked him why didn’t he tell me, he said, “I did. I said let’s get something to eat after we take the saw in.” I told him he needed to tell me he was hungry at the house, and I could have gotten him something there. He looked at me with a confused look and asked why should he tell me he was hungry, when he’s sitting here eating. That let me know he was ‘gone again’ He didn’t remember the earlier conversation.
After we got back to the house, Mike wanted to watch tv and I wanted to take care of a few things. One of the things I wanted to do prepare some special apple seeds to be able to plant them tomorrow. I got that accomplished, got my shower, and now we’re watching Angel Has Fallen. It’s been a great day. Have a good evening.
