I am reading Vineyard Prey by Philip R. Craig.

68 degrees, sunny, and breezy this morning when I left for the gym. The gym was actually closed today to start on our renovation projects. Since I would be working today anyway I went in to help empty file cabinets, pack up stuff, etc. in the offices. Today the guys were laying the carpet in the two main hallways and they are painting the walls. We reopen tomorrow as usual. Staff will have to work with stuff piled on counters and just enough space to sit at the computer to check people in. It will be a mess next week since we will be open while they are laying carpet in our work spaces.

I worked from 8:30 to 2 pm. Sunny, warm, and very breezy today.

68 degrees, cloudy, and breezy when I left for the gym. Grocery store on the way home then back to the gym to work.

Mostly cloudy, warm, and breezy today. We are getting just the outer cloud bands from Dorian. We are too far north and west to get any rain as she skirts up the coast.

74 degrees and sunny when I left for Winston this morning. I did a Costco run to stock up on supplies I I use and like to keep extra on hand whether it be food, paper products, or personal items. From there I met my friend Jean for lunch at Village Tavern then back up the mountain for home.

It was hot down there at 92  and it’s hot up here at 85 with lots of sunshine.

I am reading Deadfall by Sue Henry.

61 degrees and sunny this morning. I volunteered at the bookstore this morning. The day started out cool but it’s warmed up into the low 80’s with low humidity, lots of sunshine, and a breeze.

61 degrees and sunny when I left for the gym this morning.

Back home, I did some plant deadheading, etc. It’s a beautiful day with temperatures only in the upper 70’s for a high and a slight breeze.

I spent the an hour or so at my desk balancing the checkbook and paying the first of the month bills. I have a few odds and ends chores for the afternoon

Yesterday afternoon we drove over to Donna’s to see the baby goats. Since I was over there a couple of weeks ago she had another set of kids born. Frances held one of the goats and petted the others. Then she showed Frances the bunnies and ducks.

We came back home then went into town to Mis Arados for dinner and a stop at Food Lion to pick up a few things.

After a leisurely morning they left around 10:30 to head back home. I vacuumed and cleaned the bathrooms.

It’s a little more cloudy and breezier today than yesterday but still a nice, warm day.

67 degrees, sunny, and calm this morning.

Frances and Al came up last night arriving around 7:30.

We spent the morning in the yard. Al brought up his battery powered tree limb trimmer. He trimmed up the low hanging branches on the pines that line the fence, thinned out the dead branches in the apple tree, and lopped of a few low hanging branches from the trees along the back fence line. James has a good sized pile of brush to haul of when he has time.

It’s another beautiful day with temperatures in the low 80’s, lots of sunshine, and a slight breeze.

It has been a beautiful day here in the mountains. High of 75, low humidity, lots of sunshine, and a not as breezy as it was this morning. Fall is just around the corner.

62 degrees and cloudy when I left for the gym. It’s been a very strange weather day. It looked like rain when I got to the gym. When I left to come back home the sun was shinning.

After checking the weather radar I grabbed gloves and a bucket and headed to the yard to pull weeds, deadhead flowers, etc. Not 20 minutes later fog, clouds, and a misty rain rolled in that was not on the radar. Back in the house we came. I did a few things at my desk and then headed for the shower. By the time I was out of the shower the sun was back out though there were still heavy clouds around. Breezy this afternoon with sun and clouds and temperatures in the mid 70’s.
