The windows have been open each day and there is something about open windows that just connects one with nature. Here in the South this time of year, there is a soft continuous trill that goes on all afternoon long, so the day is never truly quiet. It's an aliveness of the air, perhaps a cricket or some insect that sings, but it's just part and parcel of Fall. A week of lovely autumn weather just behind me and frankly I am loathsome to see warm days return. But it is indeed returning, at least for a few days and then we'll go right back to being cool. I'll go back to AC on in the afternoons and grateful for it.
The freezer challenge continues. I've some breathing room after this past week. Some of the space will fill right back up when we shop for groceries this week. I'm thinking this whole freezer thing could go on quite a bit longer and I mean that sincerely. I've barely made a dint.
I've decided, in my retirement remedy planning that I need to do a Pantry Freezer challenge at least one week per month. So you'll see my little lady above at least once a month in the coming year. In the meantime, we've one more week of this freezer challenge so we'll see how well I can do.
