I am reading The Devil’s Deal by Donna Ball.

Sunny and breezy with temps in the mid 70’s and low humidity.

Did the house cleaning chores this morning, watered the hanging baskets and plants on the deck, and am washing a load of towels.

I am reading Murder on Cape Code by Maddie Day.

Another fall like day with lots of sunshine and temps in the low 70’s.

George showed up around 9 am to repair the stone work along the front porch and the ceiling in the garage around the chimney from last year’s earthquake.

While he got started I ran a quick errand in town.  I then worked on gardening projects while he was working on the repairs. It only took him about two hours.

After he left I swept the garage where the car is parked then gave it a wash before pulling back in.

That was enough for me for one day.

I am reading Shadows in the Cotswolds by Rebecca Tope.

A cool front came in behind Ida bringing clear skies, a breeze, and temps in the upper 60’sl

I went into town to the library to pick up my library books and drop off something at the bookstore for Joyce then back home. Did a couple of things outdoors.

I had about two and half inches of rain over night and this morning from Ida.

Skies were mostly cloudy this morning when I left for town to volunteer at the bookstore. The sun came out for about an hour then more of those outer bands of Ida came back around as she headed on north. We’ve had maybe another half inch or so.

A steady business at the bookstore from mid morning until mid afternoon.

Mostly cloudy and cool today with temps in the low 70’s. The outer bands of rain from Ida going up though Tennessee will get to us sometime this afternoon. May be heavy at times. We are under a flash flood watch.

I went to the gym this morning then made a quick stop at the grocery story to pick up milk, salad, stuff, and juice. Otherwise, not much else going on here.

Warm and mostly sunny this afternoon with highs in the mid 80’s and humid.

I drove over to Galax, VA this morning. I went to Lowe’s to pick up a couple of bags of bird seed then stopped at Walmart. Had good luck there picking up a couple items I had not been able to get at Food Lion. I bought some additional canned food items and a couple of odds and ends.

The  Show Dept. is in the same shopping complex at Walmart. I found my size in the New Balance tennis shoes I like which is often not the case. All in all a successful trip.

Another warm day with some clouds but mostly sunny and breezy. Temperatures in the low 80’s.

House cleaning chores this morning. Went out and watered the hanging baskets.

Thick boneless pork chops in the crock pot for dinner and to freeze for future meals.

It’s been sunny, warm, and breezy the last couple of days with temps in the low to mid 80’s.

Not really much going on. I went to the gym yesterday and worked outside for awhile watering plants and dead heading flowers.

Today is laundry and odds and ends chores.

I am reading One For The Books by Jenn McKinlay.

Sunny and warm again today with temps in the mid 80’s and, as always, a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.

I went to the grocery store this morning. Really did not need anything but milk and salad greens. They were stocking shelves but still a lot of things out of stock.
