Beautiful & Relaxing, But Lonely...
Last night, it was just after 1:30 am, when I called lights out. Early, I suppose, compared to some other nights. When I awoke today, I felt refreshed. Thank You, Lord!
Even though it is Saturday, I had some real estate work to do; I managed to get it done and over with, early in the day.
To my surprise, I heard from my daughter B, yesterday. While I still do not have a phone number to reach her, she did give me a phone number for her eldest son (my eldest grandson) T, who now lives in Ottawa. Tomorrow, I'll make sure to call him. It's been well over a year since I spoke/saw him.
Most of my day was spent relaxing, updating on my computer and on Facebook (FB), of course! It's hard to believe that I, the person who thought I'd be lucky to have three (3) friends on FB, now has 710 friends! Wow!
Truly, it is amazing. Especially since I've had a few friends cancel me, due to not agreeing with some of my postings, which serve to open the eyes of people who may not be aware of the threat Islam and Sharia Law poses us, today. This is a topic for another time.
The weather was beautiful, today. Sunny, clear, not humid, but warm. Nice. Just the way I like it! Again, thank You, Lord!
After making sure to do my stretching exercise, I went to the pool this afternoon. A Saturday afternoon, is not usually the best time to go to the pool to do my aquafit programme, especially since it takes me usually 50-60 minutes to complete it. The weekends are usually busy with families and friends visiting, so I try to go early in the day on Saturday, but today, I just could not fit it in. So, I went this afternoon.
Ah, it was so-o beautiful and relaxing! Actually, I was surprised at how few people were in the pool. At one point in time, I was the only person! However, just before I was completing my workout, several groups showed up. Praise God! Thank You, Jesus! You provided for me, to get my workout done, before the pool got busy. I'm blessed!
A few days ago, I took photos of our deck and pool area, but hadn't yet posted them for you to see, so I'm including them, today. Enjoy! Just so you know, my apartment view faces east. The pool and deck is on the other side, the west side of the building.
I did get to visit with my neighbour/friend K, who joined me in the pool, just before I was ready to leave. It's always nice being able to spend time with friends! Especially, K!
As you can probably tell, I lead a very lonely, boring life. I cannot remember the last time I sat at the table to eat a meal, for it hurts me to look over at emptiness, where Gordon used to sit.
This evening, I sat looking out at the beautiful view from my apartment. Sailboats were on the river and lake. The marinas and yacht club were alive with people coming and going. I could even hear a bagpiper playing music, in the distance. It seems everyone has a life, but me.
Oh well. This is the way God would have it. Me being alone and lonely on a Saturday night. If it wasn't His will, I would have a life. And, a love.
Until next time...
