I had overall a pretty sweet day today.
Tinny and I arrived at the U-Store place at 9:00 to supervise the movers handling Budget’s stuff. (Only had to pass the place twice before we made it into the parking lot!)
While we were there, I spotted Budget’s senior yearbook sitting on one of the boxes, so I picked it up to give us something to occupy us while waiting. I went searching for my message (because I remembered I’d written about a page) just to see what I’d said. I was reading it out loud, getting a kick out of it, when, about halfway through the page, I was suddenly struck by how straight my writing was across the page. Like I’d been writing on lined paper or something. This is unusual for me; I have pretty neat writing, but not when there are no lines. So I commented on this to Tinny.
And then I read the very next line—“I just noticed how straight my writing looks across the page…that’s amazing!”
How freaky is that? I noticed the same thing at the same time as I did two years before when I was first writing it.
So then Tinny and I came back to my house, chilled a bit, and headed off to the Ribaut/Ribault (it’s spelled both ways) monument, so she could see what it was. The weather was so lovely today…not too cold, not too hot…just right.
Then we went to the fort. Fort Caroline. We had the most amazingly fun time. We were basically acting out every character in history that we could imagine being at that fort. Sentinels, Commanders, enemies, tourists…you name it. Man…I will never forget today.
And then we came back, picked up Milo, and went to lunch at our British place. After that, we did some random driving around in places that I’ve never driven and that Tinny did not even know existed. Then I dropped Tinny off, and we discussed how much we had bonded and grown as friends over the past 14 hours. We had a good time today.
