1. Sunday I surprised Aunt Leslie by arriving at her ward just before she gave her lesson in Relief Society. I wish I would have had a camera. Her surprised face was classic. I also loved being able to see and hug my dear friend Ofa. I had dinner with Leslie and Gordon, picked my last grapefruit of the season and then returned home in time to squeeze the juice from those grapefruit before my VT picked me up and took me to the airport for my Red Eye to Boston.
2. It literally rained from the time I touched down in Boston until I went to bed that night, but it was so welcoming since we don't have rainstorms too often in Phoenix. On my way to the Cape I kept hearing my Grandpa Swensens voice telling me not to speed. When Tenielle and I met up with him just after I graduated from college he gave us that warning because police often catch vacationers speeding. I found myself thinking of how much fun we had that 4th of July and the 1 horse parade, on my entire drive to the Cape.
5. From my bedroom window I have a gorgeous view of the ocean and the sunrise. Friday morning I woke at 445 and decided since I was awake I might as well watch the sunrise, unfortunately it was cloudy but for a few minutes the clouds broke through and I saw the beautiful ray of sunshine. It was almost like Heavenly Father was showing me a little light and letting me know that there will be light at the end of the tunnel and that I will make it through this bump in the road.
6. I went on a wonderful run down by the beach and the golf course Friday morning. I'm so grateful that I can run without pain. I feel like I need to do everything I can to become as healthy as I can in the next few weeks before surgery. The one thing I hate about surgery is that it messes with my working out schedule. I am determined to walk every day by the beach, fast or not I'm going to do it.
7. Remember how much I love my Oak Bluffs Library? I renewed my library card and checked out some books and DVDs on Friday.
8. Of course I had to get my First Friday's Grace Church Lobster roll. Yummy.
