We had to drain our pool this weekend. Not-something-we-want-to ever-do!!! During one of the dust storms the drains on the bottom of the pool got stopped up, Ron tired to unstop them from the filter, but the clog is really bad so we have to do it from the deep in the bottom drain. Since standing on the bottom of the deep end, holding your breath, trying to use a screw driver in 50 degree water is not a option, the only course is to drain it. In a drought year. Believe me, I have tried to figure out how not to fill it back up. I asked Ron if we could just turn it into a root cellar. You know put boards on top and put dirt on top, he said no.
So onto my morning. I have watched to many Sci-Fi movies. It is Monday morning, the first day of Easter vacation. Feeling like I want to do something different, I decide a smoothie is a good way to start. I get all of my ingredients into the blender. I am standing in the kitchen, looking out the window, when I see and hear the power blip. Then it does it again. My thought is darn, the power is out, no smoothie. I notice though, that the oven light isn't blinking. I look over at the microwave, which is blinking. I notice the display. It says, " "Only you can choose to have a nice day." I thought, what the heck, then it says, " choose clock now." I obey, I choose clock and set the clock, and feel like I have just entered the twilight zone. How would I ever show anyone what I have just seen? Who will believe me? I am not sure if I believe me.
I am just minding my own business and I can hear a really low airplane behind me. I turn to look and it is a World War ll cargo plane with four engines. As it flies overhead, I look up and on the underside of the wing is written, " Rides." I thought, rides? Wow, I would like to go for a ride. I think about it, Peter comes outside to talk to me for a bit and I get finished and come inside. I have been out there a hour and a half. Which feels like I have been out there only minutes. I have this weird feeling in my head, as the load of clothes I put in the dryer what felt like just a few seconds ago is finished and dry.
I feel as if I have been in a time warp. Maybe I should just go back to bed and start over.
