I took the day off work today...just because. Sometimes it's good to take a "just because" day and today is that day for me.
I've already mowed and edged the front and back yard, started laundry, and pulled weeds. I love the mornings and the cool breeze that you can ONLY find in Oklahoma from 6 til about 9:30 a.m. It's going to be in the high 90's again today and there will be no air movement once the mercury rises above 85. I'm going to spend some time with a friend, spend some time straightening the house, pick up my Dad's day gift and just enjoy the day.
With that in mind, I have no 'inspired' post and I don't really feel like digging into the 'closet of demons' today, so I'll leave you with some funny and somewhat thought provoking questions I found on line today. I'm sure you've seen some of them...but they're worth revisiting.
