Warm and sunny today with highs in the mid to upper 70’s.

Today was the first day of our store wide sale. Everything in the store is half price. This morning we had ten or book dealers who come in to take advantage of the sale to buy up and resale either online or in consignment stalls where they live. It was non-stop until about 12:30 then things picked up again around 1:30 until closing time. We cracked the $600.00 ceiling for today. Whew.

Another day just like yesterday. Sunshine, breezy, and temperatures in the low 70’s.

I opened the bookstore this morning and worked until noon to cover for Joyce. Reba was also there as the backup. I left and went to the library to pick up books then stopped at the grocery store. Only needed a few odds and ends and picked up salad greens.

James will be here this afternoon to mow. Need to fill the bird feeders and check the hanging pots to see if they need watered.

More fall like weather again today. Lots of sunshine with temperatures in the low 70’s and breezy.

A slow day at the bookstore with low sales and off and on customers. But, we are working to get as many books priced and out for our big sale coming up this weekend.

A front came through yesterday evening bringing another half inch of rain. Today is sunny and mild with temperatures in the low 70’s and breezy.

I skipped the gym this morning and stayed home to work in the yard. Spent about an hour and half pulling weeds and grass. Dumped another one of the hanging pots on the porch and pulled up some of the dead stuff in the butterfly garden, filled the bird feeders, and tidied up in the garage a little.

This afternoon I need to tidy up in the kitchen; empty the dishwasher and put away the clean dishes on the counter.

Mostly sunny today this afternoon with temperatures in the upper 70’s.

I had a dentist appointment at 11. Got out of there at noon. It’s only a couple of miles back to the house so I came home to kill time until my 1:00 Friends of the Library meeting. We had refreshments today to honor our longtime treasurer who is stepping down so I skipped lunch. Most likely skip dinner as well.

Partly sunny today with highs in the low 70’s. May get some rain this afternoon or evening.

I did the usual house cleaning chores this morning. Then went downstairs to put the books back on the two shelves I had to move from the last flood.

Worked on a few things here at my desk. This afternoon need to do the laundry and a load of towels.

It has rained all day with temperatures in the mid 60’s. So far close to two inches here at the house.

I was at the bookstore all day. With the bad weather we had a few customers off and on through the day. Thankfully we had several big sales that brought us close to our $100.00 ceiling.

Mostly sunny today with highs in the upper 60’s and breezy.

A very slow day at the bookstore. A few customers off and on and a couple of decent sales. Keli and I priced and shelved some books but otherwise, just hung out and chatted.

The plumber called and schedule my water filtration system installation for the end of September.

Crazy weather again today. Temperatures may not make it to 70 this afternoon.

Instead of going to the gym this morning I got out in the yard. I pulled up the marigolds around the mailbox and pulled weeds and grass from the natural area beds. Did not get all of it done but it looks a lot better. The porch hanging pots are still doing fine as are the pots on the steps.

I quite after about an hour and half to come in and get cleaned up then headed into town. It was raining when I went through town go to the bank then quit by the time I came back through town to go to the library and then stopped at the grocery store. Then it rained it here around 1:30 just long enough to wet the grass. James is sitting on the porch waiting to see if things will dry up enough to mow.

The plumber came to give me an estimate on a water filtration system that will cure the eroding coupling issues due to low PH in the water. The will replace pipes and fittings that have not already been replaced as well as the current filter and hot water circulation system.

Weird weather day. High in the upper 70’s we had intermittent sun and down pours in town. Did not get any at my house,

I was at the bookstore all day. We did crack the $100 ceiling which is good. Tourist season is winding down during the week with school starting back so weekdays are hit or miss with sales.
