After all of the griping and complaining about the d($*ed wind, this afternoon was a true June summer day and if I could (physically) I'd turn a cartwheel. I am so excited. You'd think I'm a farmer or something the way the weather has affected me this past month. Back to the cartwheel, I never could turn one of those things, my legs were too darned long...
Yesterday was Father's Day and I had sharing time in Primary. The kids were wound up a little tight but thank goodness it's over for another month. Last night we had dinner at Nola's. They fixed red and green enchiladas, beans, spanish rice and guacamole. I LOVE all of those but I am on a diet and I DIDN'T cheat! I am determined to make 15 pounds in three weeks. I am so close I couldn't blow it so when I am on maintenance, I will once again have a REASONABLE amount of the things I love. I have never done Phase 3 of any diet, EVER...and I am DETERMINED to make it this time.
Daddy always has a project of some kind going. He has worked this spring and summer irrigating for Wink Crigler. He's getting crippled up with arthritis, losing most of the sight in one eye due to a torn cataract that can't be corrected, and after all of the years using air wrenches, his hearing is going too. The other day he was getting ready to set the water up at Uncle Rennie's when he stumbled onto a couple of rattlesnakes. Dad said he could hear them but didn't see them for a minute...worries me because of his impaired vision.
Daddy is close to Uncle Richard - they talk on the phone EVERY day. Uncle Leo will be 89 in July and I had the horrible thought the other day that one of these days my uncles will be gone and it made me sad. They are getting up in years and it is inevitible.
I love my dad and I love visiting with him. I love working with him. He has lots of wisdom to share, hopefully I have the wisdom to listen to him. I love you dad.
