Weather warmed up to the 80s today. Ick. And pretty windy. I am so dreading summer. I feel so bad when it is hot and humid. Sigh….
Met Sally for lunch today in Lindsborg at Jalisco’s. Had a nice visit. Mulled over some local gossip, shared some sort of bad news, and then we decided that ‘It is what it is’. That is my mantra for this year. It is what it is. I cannot change things in my life. Maybe for the worse but for the better —- doubtful. There are moments of good but they do not last. Ever. It is what it is.
Found a box of old photos last week. I finally got them sorted. Fun to see some of the old buildings in Falun and some of the wonderful people who lived there. And some who still do. But looking at those photos were also bittersweet. Happy faces, innocent family and friends. But now, years later, I know ‘the rest of the story’. In those sweet, innocent faces are a victim of suicide, a murder victim, several horrible diseases, some broken lives. Sad to know. Some are close to me, some far removed. I think about the hopes and dreams that I had when I a few of these people came into my life. And how sadly wrong I was. If I had known the truth then, maybe I would not have been so surprised. I have had fun sharing some of the photos on my Falun group on FaceBook. Trying to figure who everyone is.
I stopped at my cousin Charlotte’s yard to photograph her flowers. And a few honey bees and butterflies. Nice end to the day.
र्षा, बारिश, आज आया. हीट गुंबद दूर जा सकते हैं.
