Day 119: Quickie...
Thursday, April 28, 2011
Tomorrow is THE big day - well, I can't help it, I'm a royalist Anglophile. An Anglophilic royalist? Point being, I plan to park my own self in the living room and glue the remote to my hand. He is forbidden to disturb me until The Deed Is Done, which (so they tell us) will be by 2 PM GMT. Coverage starts at 8 (!) so it will be a long morning, but at least it's not like 3 AM, lol. I plan to set up the WiiFit 'free step' and I can accomplish my fitness while I don't miss a moment.
Today the weather was gorgeous. Keep in mind we're some 200 miles from London, so whether that bodes well for tomorrow there or not, I dunno. We took a very long walk this afternoon, out along a trail here, onto one of the footpaths, and then across a farm field (I guess the farmer wouldn't have objected; nothing's planted yet!), and I used an application on the new phone to track the route. It noted time, distance, average walking speed, the works. I love that. Finally I have a phone that I can see using for something other than actual calls!
Also been a busy day for long-distance phone calls - both my son and one of my cousins, plus an ultra-long email from my darling dotter. Sometimes Life really IS good--!
All right, that's it, out o'here. No Beatleband tonight. I want to get to bed as I'm getting up a half-hour early tomorrow to set up breakfast and all that before the Beeb starts the show.
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
