2020 March 10 Tuesday in Liberty Hill Texas

arly this morning earth’s tiny twin shone as brightly as yesterday’s reluctant sun. Earth and moon, siblings twirling together through space in their struggle, pulling apart, then draw closer once again.

nterestingly while this showed mostly cloudy, at the same time, there was a dense fog alert.

he top photograph was taken well before dawn. The middle photo was taken a few minutes before dawn. Three third picture was taken a few minutes after dawn. Ah, there is the dense fog for which they were alerting me.

esterday I wrote about liking rain. As I was saving that short piece in a file, I found this short piece I had written about fifteen years ago.

Smelling Rain

Have you ever noticed how rain changes the smell of things? Oddly enough when it first starts to rain the air smells dusty (if you’re in country). In the city the rain, at first, seems to bring out the smells of hot sidewalks and old oil.

Usually you can smell the rain coming before it arrives.
During the rain, smells are suppressed. All you smell is rain!
Now! After the rain! That’s when everything smells fresh and cool and clean.
Except the dog!

t the Georgetown senior center today, Ella and I played four rounds of Fast Track.

his is the track of our travels today. From Stocktank RV Park to Madella Hilliard Senior Center in Georgetown and back again by a slightly different route.

nce we were home. Ella fell coming from the truck to the RV. Okay Ella in your own words tell us what happened.

ell when I got out of the truck, I went out to talk to Jackie, Tresa’s sister, who had stopped at the dumpster.

hen walking back in, I picked up a spoon that was on the ground. I was also bending over to pick up a piece of paper that was on the ground. In the process of picking up the paper, I lost my balance. I did about 3 yards of walking real fast, where I was trying to catch up with myself, so that I wouldn’t fall. In the end I did fall. But I think I went down a little gentler than I might have otherwise.

y knee is scrapped, but I really don’t feel too bad. And then Tom came out to help me get up and brush all the leaves off of me, and the dirt.

hese jeans definitely are going into the laundry, because I have mud on my pants from the rain that we’ve had the last few days.

very couple of hours I’ve been asking, “How do you feel now?” I really don’t want her covering up something because “it’s nothing.” Yes, she does that sometimes because she doesn’t want to “be a bother.” I do the same thing, but it’s frustrating when she does it.

fter burning through the fog this morning, Ol’ Sol has been burning bright and (relatively) hot. It topped out at seventy five degrees.


his is the sky that greeted us as we came our from Cross Tracks Church’s Tuesday night prayer meeting.
