Good Early morning. First the weather. 62 degrees, wind at 5 mph, rain starting at around 11 am and lasting all day.
I decided yesterday I would start reading the father and son’s novel Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. Now this book is 700 pages long so I won’t be taking it out when I’m going some place. Instead I will carry J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye. It is 277 pages long and will fit in my purse. ( I realize that Catcher is a very old novel but I missed it the first time around so I’m trying to catch up with these stories now.
This morning I started with filling,then running the dishwasher, pulling the laundry from Cindy’s room, also from my room, and basically catching up because I spent yesterday with Wes in the afternoon. He invited me over for spare ribs ( knowing how much I love them) because he figured we wouldn’t have too many more nice days to to use the grill. While I was there I shot another few color pictures.
I think I’ll take my truck to Auto Zone, see if they can meter the check engine light on the dash, and determine what the problem is. I just don’t like driving too far when a problem is indicated. I realize the truck is about 10 years old but I don’t even want to think about replacing it at my age. It goes forward, backward, turns left or right, stops when I step on the brakes, so that makes it worth trying to keep it up.
I have to make a trip to Sam’s Club for the potato chips for the trick or treaters in a few days. I believe this is best thing to hand out. No worry about sweets, individually wrap, and easy to handle.
I think I had better check the laundry and the dishwasher on their progress. Both are still running.
As to the zoo the cats are fed so I think I’ll move on to the birds then see if Brandy is ready to get up yet. She won’t eat until later but she may need to go outside. I have to get dressed, make my bed, and proceed with the away from the house duties.
Have a good day, a productive start of a new week, and take some time for you because you are important.
