Emails and Phone Calls

The day has been a mixture of sun and rain, temp around 80(!).  The weather here in South Florida can change every half hour.

Got a call from my new friend (remember the wine tasting?).  She was supposed to attend a violinist performance with me on Sunday, but it turns out she may not be able to after all.

Another friend has some car problems, and I’ve offered some suggestions (I’m not auto-mechanically-inclined) regarding her problem.  We chatted amiably by email.

Got another phone call from my friend in Connecticut.  She’s coming for a visit in a couple of weeks, and she’s on a Jenny Craig diet now, so we had much to discuss regarding food!

Daughter called and we talked about her day, and what she has planned for her weekend.  She’s a very busy person!

Called my sister late in the evening.  It was her husband’s birthday today, and I forgot to send a card (hand-slapping going on here).  Got him on the phone and wished him a good one; after all, it still was before midnight!

Taking time out from mundane chores to interact with the important people in my life gives me much pleasure.  Do you take the time?

  1. It’s almost always nice to reconnect with people. Sounds like you had a great day!


  2. I remember when I visited Miami Beach a few years ago …. a lot of years ago …. and I was standing outside Darby’s ice cream parlor when this one little …. very small …. cloud came out of nowhere and hovered over me …. and rained on me …. and then sped away. I couldn’t believe it happened. I still have trouble believing it happened. One little cloud and me …. on a sunny day in July in Miami Beach.


    • South Florida used to be just like that many years ago, John. I remember when I visited my parents in the 1980s. My Mom and I just came out from a store and had to run back in. It rained so heavily! My Mom told me it was usual to rain at that time of afternoon, and she said it would stop soon. Sure enough, it did! Things are not the same anymore. Since all the building that has appeared over the years, it rains at odd times, and sometimes all day! Thanks for your comment. 🙂
