Living...

It is a great day - I woke up (I just remembered how on weekends I used to "come to" instead of "wake up") to follow through on a service commitment, worked around the house, went to a Celestial Seasonings tent sale, went to a Founder's Day picnic, heard a couple of great AA speakers (one spoke in Spanish with translation), connected with several folks (including the guy I met in ICU last week), did some more work around the house, talked to several sponsees, planning to go to dinner and my big home group meeting and our group conscience meeting - it's just about perfect. In fact, I think I'll call it perfect.

Our weather here is unseasonably cool and rainy this spring (it's raining again this afternoon - I think this might be nearly 2 weeks straight of at least every afternoon). In my community, we've almost reached our annual average precipitation amount. I'd be upset except that I remember 2 years ago when we were having 100+ degrees this time of year and scorching drought - I much prefer this. Much as I know it slows some down, I love the cool and don't even mind the rain that much as long as it's sunny for some part of the day (and it generally has been).

Syd had proposed a Sunday meme of "Heard in a meeting..." last week - I think it's a good idea to try. While my meetings may not be as wise as some of the rest of yours, I love to hear the wisdom and the opposite of that when it's said somewhere...

Thanx y'all for this piece of my life...

Overheard:

It came to the point where AA had to be enough. And I am lucky, it is enough.

I have a fat life. (Meaning it's so full it's fat.)

I have a fat head, meaning it's so full it's fat.

In fact many of my ex-friends call me "fathead"!

We are on a road trip out of hot, hot Southwest Florida and the weather is heavenly.

We're in Southern Illinois and it's delightful. We're driving our new RAV4 with sunroof and have even been able to open it up to the wonderful air a few times.

The weather sounds great.It is hot and humid and rainy here.

Thanks for doing the meeting thing. It is good to hear those words of wisdom.
