First thing, I learned of SCC's tragedy which had me broken hearted all day.
I had a wonderful coffee talk with a friend, but we talked about some thought-provoking things.
There was caffeine in the coffee that I had ordered de-caf. I became pretty sick from that. I just can't do caffeine on an empty stomach.
Then I heard about the tornado that struck north of here and we were under a watch as well. I feel for the family of the one person killed, but thank God there wasn't more life lost. That bottom picture is of what is left of a tractor trailer that blew across that field off of the Interstate.
My daughter had her continuation program from sixth grade!
We went out for a celebratory dinner, even though I still felt very odd from the caffeine.
I talked to a cousin to be sure she hadn't got tornadoed or anything. It is always fun to talk to her.
Then I talked to a friend that I hadn't talked to for nearly a year. She has been through some major life changes and had some real difficulties and heartbreaks since I last spoke to her. Her most recent thing was being attacked by a 130 pound dog in a pet store.
She said some very kind things to me and it was good to talk to her. We finally hung up about midnight and I went to bed.
It was a very life-filled day. Life is full of ups and downs. Good news and bad. Grief and hope. Friends, laughter and tears. Encouraging and being encouraged.
It was a weird day, but you all know how I feel about weird.
