red-shouldered

The sky here remains overcast as slender tendrils of the storms 400 kilometers south reach up to our area. The rain has been light thus far. The storm stands centered over Houston and its surrounding counties. It looks as if it will drop a meter and a half of rain before it is done. The news is full of pictures of people being rescued by boat.

My morning went by the form book:

a. forty minute walk in Allen Station Park;
b. forty minutes in Weight Watchers--there was more standing in line than usual because they were short-handed at check-in. I was up 2.2 pounds after last week being down 3.1 pounds. The person handling check-in explained she was watching her texts, as her mother was in Houston; 
c. twenty minutes walking in Shawnee Park;
d a church service; and
e. a meeting after church about a resumption of The Way church service.  This incarnation will feature seminary students speaking. I signed up to put away chairs after the service, a duty I consider uniquely suited to my theological gifts.

In the afternoon, when I was not watching people being rescued from floodwater on television, I went for a bicycle ride on the Watters Creek trail. Watters Creek was lightly flowing.  I covered a bit more than five miles in a bit less than 90 minutes. I saw a great Red-Shouldered Hawk on a low-lying tree.

Now I am watching "Endeavor" on PBS.

breakfast: Kix cereal and skim milk, lunch: grilled chicken, greens, a roll and squash, dinner: grilled chicken breast, corn tortillas, pinto beans and broccoli
