Just amazing – I have been mesmerized all week with the goings on in Houston. The awful storm, the heroic actions of people, the amazing rescues, the tragic losses. I have smiled and cried and prayed. Sappy holidays and tragedies unite people. I wish we could be like this every day. More kindness please. There is also massive flooding going on in Asia which hasn’t gotten the news coverage in the US. Prayers for those people too.
Not baking much these days – About a month ago I bought some ingredients to make a dessert. They are still there waiting for me. It was a very summery dessert with lemons. They are close enough to pumpkins and apples. Maybe this week!
Going back to my roots – As a youngster, I wore sneakers a lot. Then I graduated to heels and sandals and all sorts of wild and crazy shoes. As a retiree I find myself in sneakers again. I put them on for my walk in the morning and forget to change them. I forgot how comfortable they are.
Bird feeders – I keep four bird feeders up and filled. Three are filled with sunflower seeds and one is with thistle seed. The sunflower seed needs to be filled regularly. It’s cyclical. Consumption picks up after mating and again when the babies leave the nest (and come to my feeders). Then it slows down. At the height of the season I fill every day. I am slowing down to every other day. Wonder if the birds know something I don’t.
Seasonal changes – Everything seems to have changed. Traffic patterns, food flavors, clothing, sunsets. Fall came early this year. We have been struggling to hit 70 degrees this past week but (a very mild) Harvey is coming through with some warmer weather. I’m looking forward to it. I’m not ready to give up my friend summer yet.
So how was your week?
