Many blessings lately:

     Got out to the theater last Saturday to see Ant-Man. Not only did I enjoy the movie more than I expected, but I loved a bunch of the trailers, and I got the wonderful shaded parking spot under the wonderful hackberry tree. Between the tree and both sunshades, my car wasn't back at all when I got out, despite the horrible dew point.

     Happiness is yummy guacamole and chips, thanks to my Trader Joe's gift card!

     Since Geren book 1 work has been devouring my life this year, the only way I can justify spending time to watch something is if I'm also on the exercise bike. So I'm delighted to have a total of 177 miles pedaled in July...AND I'm really enjoying season 2 of 'Elementary.'

     Pass 6 of my first Geren book just hit the 2/3rds mark!

     On Monday when I got home from work, Shado was doing his usual celebration of the event when he took a fall through the stairs. Poor guy sounded like a bowling ball, since he hit a few things on his descent into the basement. (Also, perhaps due to his higher amount of Asian Leopard Cat genes, he does NOT know how to turn in a fall--he falls horribly, like a dog or a human). Very grateful that he seemed fine afterward, and that he was not sore the following morning. Thank you, God!

     I couldn't watch Shado Monday evening because I was off to a memorial service for Mr Washburn, my high school chemistry and physics teacher. I am so grateful that I found out the service info on the obituary website, and that it was on an evening when I could go. Also delighted by the fantastic turnout, and wow, what a service. What a life lived to the glory of God! What an inspiration! I am so glad his 90 year race has come to a glorious end and he is Home with God at last.

So glad Shado was okay from his fall. I was not aware that he can turn
when falling.

So glad you made it to the Memorial. Linda told me she saw you there.

Yes, not at all like Arun in that regard. He is funny.

We had a brief but good talk. And now I know their doorbell doesn't work! ;)
