Change Of Plans

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.
