rainy Sunday balance

Big rainstorm this morning. I loved it. Beatrice found it worthy of a bark or two.
The daily high was twenty degrees fahrenheit cooler.

I went to church at First UMC. I was 7 minutes late to the service, which made me arrive just before the sermon. I was intrigued by the efficiency of the service. After the service, I went to Bethany Lakes Park, where I walked in sprinkling rain and watched green herons, great egrets and snowy egrets.

I stopped by Best Buy and Staples to look at laptops. Though I know from the websites of each that each has a broad selection, neither store facilitated shopping as easily as its website. Though I would like to get a more powerful laptop for making music, finding the right price/features balance is tricky. I need a moderately powered CPU, a DVDRW drive, a microphone input, and a headphone/speakers output. I might like an SSD or SSHD. I have very little need for an impressive GPU, as my gaming is limited. All the things I want are easy to find, but the balancing act between price and features
is always the fun in the process.

I lost 2.8 pounds at Weight Watchers, which pleased me since I had Indian food last night, and kept my intake "on plan". Then I went to have chicken with broccoli at
Tian An Mien wok. I took Beatrice for an afternoon walk in the post-rain afternoon. My wife and I made some plans this evening for an upcoming vacation.

Tomorrow will be a busy day. I'm looking forward to getting things done.
