Well, the US now has a new president elect and I am sure that everyone is very glad to have the election over with so the ads and calls will subside—-it is amazing how invested Australia seems to be in the whole process. You would think it was their country that was having the election!! When someone finds out you are American that is all they want to talk to you about—politics in America. Now maybe that will end, too! We shall see.
I have a lot of people on my mind today —found out that several of my friends who have been ill are not doing well including my wonderful friend Tom Johnson from Epworth. If you all would add him to your prayer list I would be really thrilled—prayer does work and he needs a great deal of support and love coming his way right now as well as for his wife Virginia. Also my friend Cheryl whose son has had a scary night and trip to the ER that they can determine what is going on with him. I know that there are more but these 2 are really on my mind right now.
I am at the “other” house today and if you can keep up with me and where I am you are doing better than me! I feel like I am Waldo somedays!!! We packed up the car yesterday morning and headed to Ayr and I dropped Chris off at one of the mills and came on to the house. i unloaded everything and realized that neither one of us had grabbed my briefcase which had my laptop, phone charger, books, camera, ipod, basically all the things I use when I am down here in this sparse house. So I had to make a decision. Be here for 3 days with absolutely nothing to do or drive back to Saunders Beach to get it! So I drove back. My first long distance solo drive and I did just fine, thank you very much. It isn’t that far—-less than 3 hours total there and back but with all the blasted roadworks it is a pain. You never know from one day to the next what part of the road you will be driving on and what roads will be closed and since I am not the seasoned driver here like Chris I am not always sure where I am going! But I did just fine and made it back in time to boot up my computer to watch the election stuff coming in. Which was my goal for the day anyway!
Not sure what I will be up to today—I may drive to the beach and walk or chill out—Chris shouldn’t have such a long day today and we are looking forward to eating at the Chinese restaurant in town tonight for dinner. Yum!!! Life is good!!!
