Today was quiet. No work. No running errands. No bicycle riding. Not much of anything transpired. SWMBO and I took a walk of a couple of miles to breakfast with a round-about return and that was pretty much the extent activity today for me! It was a rainy day with several hours of light rainfall. The rain was just what the ground so desperately needed. Exactly what I needed, too! Still, I felt a little guilty spending a good percentage of the day on the couch watching TV. I watched three episodes of Top Chef on Bravo! and was sorry I'd not been watching right along. We visited her mother this afternoon; surgical admission is tomorrow at 6:00 AM so Sweetie is staying over at her mother's. Mother-in-law seemed to be in excellent spirits and good condition so we've high hopes she'll tolerate the surgery just fine, even at age 88. I came home alone for a quiet evening. Nice dinner. A little wine. Perhaps some TV. A chapter or two reading from Hiding in the Mirror. Then off to bed. As I said… exactly what I needed: a quiet, rainy Sunday!
