The Sun has returned


After what seems like days and days of rain, the sun is back. Sun, I missed you a lot. I kind of slept in this morning after the long day yesterday so I'm trying to make the most of the day.

Yesterday, I applied for a ton of jobs online. I know somewhere out there is a job for me. I just hope it finds me soon. I am really working on the amount of water that I drink.

From time to time, I watch General Hospital (a soap opera). I heard on the news that the Guiding Light, a soap opera, is being cancelled in September. I never really watch this but my late grandmother did. This was her show. I can remember coming home from school at 3:30 knowing that it was still during the sacred hour. When the show was on from 3 to 4 p.m. my grandmother was not to be discovered. The only acceptable reasons were the house on fire or death. Sometimes I would watch it with her. I know she is probably disappointed to hear that her show is leaving the air. It is the longest running show on television and it started as a radio show. My grandmother used to talk about all the radio shows she and my grandfather listened to. She has been dead for 10 years but I still miss her. She helped to raise me and shaped me into the woman I am today. She always told me that I would go places. I think about things like this now because of the way my life is now. I hope she isn't disappointed. Her name was Bessie and she totally rocked!

  1. I'm not a big fan of daytime television. In fact I really don't like it unless I'm feeling unwell and unable to do anything else.

    Lovely to read that you had a close relationship with your Gran. She'd be smiling knowing that you have such fond memories of her.

    best wishes and enjoy the sunshine Ribbon
