62 degrees and sunny when I left for the gym this morning. It’s a beautiful day with temperatures starting out cool but warming up into the low 80’s this afternoon with a breeze.

I had my six month dental checkup appointment at 11. I guess Colin and I will spend some time outdoors this afternoon enjoying the nice weather.

68 degrees and sunny this morning.

Last night I went out to dinner with some friends at Crave here in Sparta.

I did the weekly house cleaning chores, etc. this morning and washed a load of towels.

Today we have clear blue skies, a slight breeze, and temperatures in the low 80’s.

I am reading A Forgiving Place by Charles Todd.

69 degrees and sunny this morning. We had a thunderstorm last night around 9 that lasted about an hour dropping an inch and half of rain.

This morning I drove up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to help Joyce man the Parkway Friends table at the Brinegar Cabin Day. It was foggy and damp. Last nights storm wrecked a couple of the tents that had been set up for today including ours. We shared the Blue Ridge Parkway tent that did not get damaged. They are the government side of the Parkway, we are the volunteer side, so it worked out well. It was foggy, damp, and drizzly all morning but when I left around 1:45 there had been over 100 people come by to see the crafts, the homemade apple butter making, and tour the garden.

Down off the Parkway where the elevation is high, it’s sunny, warm, and humid.

62 degrees and cloudy this morning when I left for the gym. Partly cloudy and cooler today but no rain or storms so far although it looked at times like it was going to pour any minute. I worked my midday shift at the gym. Lowe’s is supposed to be here this evening to install my new oven.

71 degrees and sunny this morning when I left for the gym. Library and grocery store stops on the way back home then back to work my shift.

Yesterday afternoon I drove down to Winston to run an errand and to meet Nancy and Betsy for dinner at Sweet Potatoes downtown. Nice dinner and good to catch up with friends.

Today in Sparta we are close to 90 which is very hot for us mountain folks. Fortunately, the humidity is low but no breeze.

I am reading Past Due for Murder by Victoria Gilbert.

It was 69 degrees and foggy this morning when I left for the gym.

Back home I pulled a bucketful of weeds from the beds along the porch and driveway. Sunny with a breeze this morning made it nice working outside. Temperatures are going back up into the low 80’s again today with higher humidity levels. James will not need to mow this week or again until we get some rain.

69 degrees and foggy this morning. I volunteered at the bookstore this morning. On the way home I stopped at the Life Store Insurance to see Lori. I had stopped by to talk with her last year about some insurance stuff after Bob died. I turn 65 in December of this year. She said to come see her in September to get help enrolling me with the secondary insurance. She knows exactly what is available in our area, costs, and plan comparisons. It took less than 30 minutes to get everything taken care of.

Once the fog burned off it turned warm and sunny again with temperatures in the low 80’s. Still no rain in sight.

62 degrees, sunny, and calm this morning.

I changed and wash the sheets, vacuumed, dusted, and cleaned the bathrooms then pulled out the fall decorations for the foyer table and set those up.

After lunch I cleaned up my desk, paid the bills, and worked on some other computer stuff. I put boneless ribs in the crock pot for dinner.

Warm and sunny with a slight breeze and low humidity today. No rain in sight. Things are starting to get a little dry.

62 degrees, sunny, and breezy this morning. Yesterday afternoon after I left the gym I stopped by the library to pick up the table and books for the farmer’s market this morning. Joyce and I filled in for Joe and Eileen. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and breeze. It warmed up into the upper 70’s but it was warm in the sun when the breeze died down.

Joyce and I both arrived at 7:40 to get set up. We stayed until about 12:15 when all the other vendors started packing up. Joyce hauled the stuff back to the bookstore, I came on home. Laundry and other assorted chores this afternoon.
