A nice "quiet" sunrise this morning, calmer winds happening with bright sunshine and temps (even the windchill) in the positive numbers. All of which make for a nice "quiet" day to go with the sunrise. It is good to have quiet days sometimes!
Several people have also been asking about the times with Dad. Yes, there were definitely times I was trying to give him away. I also tried, on a few occasions to do the "Ransom of Red Chief" - as in I would have paid from someone to take him. It never happened but it is a good memory because it also reminds me how we could "get to each other" at regular intervals.
There were also, however, the nice, quiet days. Dad read a LOT. His kindle had everything from several Bible translations and a couple of prayer books, to the classics to Nora Roberts on it. He also usually had an actual BOOK book within easy reach. He was quite content to read, even as I was in various quilt stores, most of the time - unless, like I said, he was giving me a hard time.
So......sometimes we laugh or we start screaming. And sometimes we smile - because we remember the quiet days. Something to think about.......
