Finding my way and a little spill...

There is nothing like feeling better after being under the weather. I am back to myself today. I am so happy to be free of stomach pain. On Thursday mornings I get to sleep in. I always look forward to those mornings, because I know I can watch TV late. My morning attendant is one of my favourites. Starting the day with a friendly face is always a bonus.

This afternoon I wheeled to my old neighbourhood. It's a distance from where I live now, but I've wanted to do it since I moved here. Once I reached my old 'hood, I had the sudden urge to yell "Yay me!" I did - just to myself. I was so proud of myself. It didn't take long for reality to hit me. Finding my way to my old 'hood is one thing; finding my way back is another. Fortunately, the whole route is 99% straight, so I didn't get lost. My only challenge was when a driver was blocking the curb cut with his car. Lucky for me, a friendly pedestrian offered to help by escorting me on the road and back on the sidewalk. I love helpful strangers, especially when it comes to road safety.

All in all, it's been a good day on my end. There is just one thing I would change. Remember the book I am reading called Water For Elephants? Well, tonight after finishing dinner, I knocked down a huge glass of water and it soaked the novel. I feel sad that it will soon be a crinkly book, particularly because it belongs to my sister-in-law. It is a little funny that there is the word "water" in the title and now the whole book is drenched. Maybe, deep in my subconscious, I really was trying to bring water to the elephants. It is a slight possibility. It's far more likely that I got clumsy.
