My family was/is scattered over the country. We don't spend a lot of time together but only because of distance.
Today was Harry's golf day and I rode in the cart with him while he played. The sun was beautiful but the wind was wicked. I still haven't gotten warm from over 4 hours outside. Winter is really here. Below is a picture taken from a distance while Harry was teeing off. The tree and sparse landscape caught my eye. Doesn't the tree almost look like some pictures you see from Africa? A big cat laying on a limb would finish the illusion.
This golf course is adjacent to the Huntsville airport. Planes takeoff and land on the runways really close by. On occasion you see Homeland Security patrolling just outside the golf course/airport fence. Harry pointed out that they stop their truck to gather golf balls that have gone astray and crossed the fence. We had a chuckle about that. We saw several military planes leaving. I hope it wasn't loaded with men and women headed to the war zone just in time for the holidays. Every time I saw one of those planes I said a quiet little prayer for the safety of all aboard and their families.
I didn't cook tonight. We stopped at Nothing but Noodles - which I love - and ate. We decided if either of us wanted something else to eat tonight we could eat left over chili. I'm drinking my second cup of ginger tea as I write hoping it will help me warm up. Next time I'm going to be outside for several hours I'll dress more warmly. It's my fault that I'm cold - I knew full well how to dress.
My day tomorrow is pretty well planned. I absolutely must straighten the house in the morning and the grandsons will be here in the afternoon. Tomorrow evening Harry and I are going to a restaurant we've never been to. No expectations - just curiosity. I don't believe there are plans made for Saturday so I may call it a "read and lounge around" day.
For now, I hope all my blog friends are doing well. My best to each of you. Tomorrow's a brand new day. Let's make it a winner. OK?
