The cooler mornings rolled in this morning and I've lovely memories associated with the second weekend in September and the subsequent second Sunday cooling day period from my childhood years. It felt just right to go out in that cool air this morning, wearing a sweater and going off to church. After church let out today we sat in the car in the parking lot and waited for the traffic to dissipate before we headed home. We had the windows down and John must have mentioned 90 times how much he wished he could drive down the street, cross a bridge and be at the ocean...Oh how I longed to tell him let's just pack up and go!
Well alas, alack and all those words which means a sorrowful acceptance of fact. We might have been tempted say a week ago but this week there is no way, no how we could do any such thing. As it happens we've helped out a child, we've no time, and the week ahead is already appointed. No beach get away for us. No get away period, for us. No problem. I've lots to do!

Jobs This Week
It's supposed to be sunny this week, I think. The rain and damp kept me from painting the porch last week but perhaps I can get to it this week.
Mop kitchen floor and baths.
Doctor appointment, pick up prescriptions and lab work.
Plan my next bulk purchase of beef and chicken and then do the shopping.
