Kay's Day - 06/30/2011

Got up early this morning because Linda was coming by around 7:15 am to go for a morning hike with me. We were meeting my friend RuthAnne over at Towsley Canyon. It was starting to get pretty warm by the time we got there, but it wasn't too bad and when we got into The Narrows of the canyon, it cooled down about 20 degrees because of the narrow passage and the high cliffs. It was very nice. We did about a 3 mile hike. When I got home, I remembered that I had not bought my Lotto ticket, so I headed over to the liquor store to get one. I had considered giving up the Lotto, but I know that Ben would want me to continue playing. Came back home and had an early lunch because I had not had breakfast. When I hike, I don't usually eat breakfast before I go. Watched my soap then got a call from Linda. She wanted to bring over the meat she bought for Ben's memorial BBQ and put it in my freezer in the garage. When she left, I went over to Wal-Mart to buy a few groceries. My brother Keith is coming to stay with me for a couple of days this weekend, so I needed to pick up a few things. Came back home and watched TV a little and uploaded the photos I took on our hike this morning to my photo sharing website. My older brother Ron called me and told me he had fallen in his living room today before he went to work. I worry about him living alone. Whoa, listen to me….I'm now living alone too. While I was out shopping today, I remembered how Ben was always so protective of me. If I was going somewhere, hiking, to lunch, shopping, etc., he always insisted that I call him when I left home, call him when I got to my destination, call him when I left my destination and call him again once I was home safely. I remember my friend Judy used to tell me how "cute" she thought that was. Now I have no one to worry about my comings and goings. I wish he was still here to worry about me like that.


  1. Yes,it is these things that may even have been annoying at times,that we miss so much now.Isn't it strange how we do those things which we think our husband would have wanted us to do?I often feel like I am hearing his voice telling me to do this or that.

  2. I'm glad you got to enjoy a nice hike. Enjoy your time with your brother this weekend. Hope you have a nice 4th of July. Take care, Sheila
