Something about August – The weather is still hot but there is that fall feel in the air. It’s still in the 70s when we get up so it has nothing to do with the weather. Usually there are back to school ads but this year mask mandates for school arguments are taking center stage. Weird year yet again. Can’t quite remember what normal looks like.
Another sign — Before you know it, pumpkin latte time will be here. I don’t like them and they clog up my Starbucks with people who do. Pumpkin belongs in pies, breads or cakes. Definitely not in beer or coffee.
Clinging on to the familiar – Sweet cat Gracie has figured her own way of soothing herself during this time of contractors. Not only did she move upstairs but she is clinging on to a box as if it was a gateway to heaven. Each cat has their own preferred item to soothe them and Gracie’s is a beat up box. Fortunately we are getting deliveries this week so maybe she can select a new one. Her peeps find their solace from ordering stuff so she has a continuing selection of boxes.
Speaking of construction – The new music conservatory is done except for the painting that I am doing. The beloved husband is making himself a new desk and a new window shade is coming soon. One thing done.
No need to water! – We’ve had a lot of rain this summer. We planted a new tree in the spring. I put a reminder on my calendar every four days to water it. I didn’t need it. We’ve had enough rain to keep it happy. Another downpour from Storm (or maybe hurricane) Henri. Grow tree, grow!
So how was your week?
