I am not usually superstitious, and that includes being superstitious about Friday the 13th. It’s just another day around my house. I got up, ate a bowl of cereal and drank my Miralax/Tang concoction. I got online and checked my email and Facebook, read some blogs. Just the same old stuff I always do.
In the afternoon, I changed the dressing on my incision, and took a long nap. I was awakened by hail hitting the roof of the trailer. It has been a very dry year here at the North Rim, and I have been worried about the possibility of a wildfire. We really needed the rain (and hail) we got here today. About an hour later, thunder shook the trailer and woke me up again! Then the rain poured out of the sky. It was a really good day for the life giving rain here.
Dinner was warmed over home made chili from last night. I added a bit of colby cheese to mine, just for a different flavor. A snack sized Butterfinger candy bar rounded out the meal.
I took a short walk outside, just to get some fresh air, and discovered it was really chilly out there. I got some nice pics of the stormy sky at sunset, along with this shot of the aspen right outside my door. The aspen bark is white, with black spots here and there. To me, it is an awesome tree.
