Gosh, if today would have been any better I would have had to wonder if perhaps I’d died and gone to heaven. First, the weather was beautiful; always a way to start a perfect day. Then I had some real undisturbed time to myself; no computer cries for help (well two but both were simple fixes and they came later in the day) and time to kick back and do what I wanted to do.

This morning Rick joined me for a swim in the pool followed by breakfast together before he went out to do some Moho detailing. Meanwhile I turned on the boob tube and got caught up with all the programs I had recorded throughout the week that I’d not had time to watch earlier. Not to be content just “vegging” in front of the TV, I cleaned house; I mean I washed the walls, the cupboards, the window sills and the floors. I vacuumed, dusted and polished and then sat back completely satisfied with the fact that we were all sparkly, shiny clean once again. (I know, I’m weird; while cleaning and cooking are chores to some they are my relaxation aids.)

Finally tonight we went to the Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella to see Orillia’s home grown Gordon Lightfoot perform. For a 68 year old who nearly died in 2002, he has lost none of his ability to entertain a packed audience and we were all lulled into a hushed appreciation to take every song in. We had third row centre seats and in front of us sat Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille of “The Captain and Tennille” fame, evidently big fans (one song made Toni cry). At the end of the concert we were still able to hear each other speak and there was no ear ringing; a real pleasant finale at a music concert.

Before and after the show, yours truly played the penny slots (I’m not much of a gambler) for a bit and from my winnings I was able to buy us dinner, tip the valet and come home with a few extra bucks. Ya, it was pretty much a perfect day.
