I had an out of kilter day on Sunday. It wasn't one of those days where everything is wrong or goes wrong..it was just a little off, if you know what I mean.
I am not a hard and fast planner. In fact, I brag about being able to change schedules and fly by the seat of my pants. My pants got a bit of a knot in them by the time the day was over.
I was planning to go to Church In The Park at 8 am on Sunday morning. As soon as it was over, Kalisha and I could drive to my daughter and son-in-law's new (to them) lake cottage. We had been trying to get there for several weekends but something always got in the way.
The first problem was the temperature when I let the dog out on Sunday morning. Good grief! It felt like October. Okay, I changed plans and told Kalisha we wouldn't attend church in the park (it might actually have been 'parka in the park') and would leave a little later, getting to the lake about 11:00. My cousin called and asked if we could meet her at her church after service to get a gift she had for Kalisha AND Kalisha reminded me she was scheduled to greet on Sunday at our church.
Okay. We would go to our church at the regular time (10:00) and meet Mary with Kalisha's gift at her church at 11:30 and THEN head to the lake.
Due to a few extra things, our church service wasn't going to be over in time to meet Mary, so we left early. I never feel quite right leaving church early.
As I filled the gas tank, Kalisha called her sister and said we wouldn't be there for an hour. As we are driving, I realized I left the directions for the shortcut at home. We took the long way.
I stopped at a produce stand and bought a few things on the way. When we arrived, it was even colder at their place than it was at home. My daughter decided it was way too cold to take the boat out for a ride around the lake and since there wasn't much else to do, we decided to come home. Perhaps she could have called and said how hard the wind was blowing on the lake and they were thinking of leaving early.
So-o-o in the end, I drove 80 miles round trip for a melon and 2 peppers.
The entire day was....not bad, just a little out of kilter.
BTW, that photo is of the produce in my garage refrigerator, not in my kitchen.
