Kay's Day - 07/03/2011
Keith left about 15 minutes ago to head home. When he drove away, I came into the house and sat and cried for about 5 minutes. Sundays seem to be one of my worst days without Ben. Keith and I had a nice 2 days. As I said yesterday, picking up Ben's ashes didn't get to me as much as I thought it would. However, Keith told me this morning that he was a little "creeped out" trying to sleep on the sofa here in the living room because he kept thinking about Ben's ashes sitting over on the hearth of the fireplace. I was surprised that he said that because things like that usually don't bother him. This morning we went for an early hike over in Placerita Canyon. We wanted to "beat the heat" so we left right after 7:00 am. For awhile, there was no one on the trail but us, but as we started hiking back down to the parking lot at the Nature Center, we started passing people who were on their way up the canyon. We did a 2 mile hike. Probably would have gone a little more but it was already starting to get warm just after 8:00 am. When we got back down to the Nature Center, we went over to look at the hawk and the owl they have caged there. We came back home and I made some breakfast for us and did a load of laundry. After I put it in the dryer, we went out again. I decided to go by where Ben had purchased the tires on our Corolla because it was time to have them rotated again and I thought that I'd go by there while Keith was with me to have that done. The guy there knew Ben because Ben used to deliver auto parts to them. He told me he was really sorry to hear about Ben passing. He was very nice and told me to come by at least once a month to have them check the air pressure in my tires. We then went to Sam's Club because there were a few items I needed there. Came home and took the laundry out of the dryer then we went out for lunch. Came home and watched a little of "The Twilight Zone" marathon then Keith had to leave for home. I really hated for him to leave.
