Close to perfect day
This has been a nearly perfect day. Nothing happened of any consequence, so this is more of a log entry than a "post."
Outside temperatures stayed below eighty degrees, humidity was never above 55 percent. I can only account for it by thinking that a cold front came through sometime during the night. There was a breeze. It felt more like early fall than mid summer. I need to enjoy it while I can, because it won't last.
Gave both ferrets a good combing. They get hair balls, just like cats, if you don't keep their coats combed and clean. I spent a lot of the day on the couch, in the main house, so I set up one of their favorite play houses on the rug in front of the television and they kept me company.
Beautiful night out there. Nice moon, still cool and breezy. Went out a while ago, and sat on the porch while I called my daughter. That's why today was "near perfect." She wants me to have her mom go to a cardiologist when she gets home. My daughter thinks there may be an issue because her mom coughs a lot. We have already been to every kind of doctor on the planet, paid all their bills, put up with all their tests, and are none the wiser. It isn't an allergy, it isn't cancer, they just can't say what it is.
I would just as soon have had one day without something to have to focus on, but the reason we stay in touch so constantly is to maintain communication. So I can't be annoyed with my daughter. Her mom is due back next weekend, and I'll set something up through the primary care physician, who will tell me there's no need. Still, I've learned the folly of trusting doctors, even the best meaning doctors.
But other than that, it was a pleasant day.
