Photo blogg here.
Weather was very hot and very humid today. At 330pm I saw 103F. Miserable. A few clouds but no chance of rain. Sigh…
Wednesday evening I met with a young man from Salina. He is doing research on ‘ghost towns’ in Saline County. He was a wealth of information. We met at Cozy Inn – local hamburger joint – and talked for hours. He is using some of my photos of old postcards on his website. Fun to meet him.
Thursday we had a family gathering at my cousins house. There were ten of us there from Lindsborg, Topeka, & Augusta. We had a wonderful lunch and lots of good family conversation. Must do this more often.
No Swedish group today. There was a funeral at the church. I am sorry for the family’s loss but really grateful for a week off. Nice to have a week without the stress of trying to keep that group going. I am tired of being president, vice-president, program organiser, secretary, coffee maker, coffee cleaner upper, & asking members to supply cookies or whatever every week. There are days I wonder how long I can keep this up. There are a couple who are great help but most who attend just expect it all to happen without lifting a finger. I get so frustrated.
Today I met Chad and Sally for lunch. I enjoy their company. After lunch I went with Chad to his and Richea’s new house. It is lovely!! They are so lucky. I cannot even fantasize about it. Not even going to be in my future.
Home and doing nothing. Fighting the urge to take a nap. I have been in a major funk since late wednesday evening. Hope it passes soon.
Ciao for niao!
Jag behöver semester! Jag vill åka till Sverige!
Sounders!!! I am sad. So sad….
