Today, my todo list was simple.
1. A 6 mile run with a friend.
2. Do some decluttering of the house.
How decadent! So much free time!
The run was done and I was showered by 10 AM.
So, I gardened.
I collected our first true summer harvest (July 30th is the latest date I've ever experienced for the first real tomato).
E and I biked to a local outdoor hotel restaurant and enjoyed a very american and reasonably-priced brunch around their pool -- the architecture, the elderly crowd, the menu of omelettes and salads and sandwiches, and of course, the view of the pool and the guests frolicking -- it felt like something out of The Graduate.
After a failed attempt at a nap, I cleaned and put things in three boxes for exit, one for trash, one for donation, and one for return to our former renter.
In the course of doing so, I found my journal from Egypt.
After reading it, I decided I will post the entries before I throw it away. Egypt may be the last trip I took without a computer, where I actually kept a written diary.
How times change.
