It’s the end of the week once again. How time flies. We are also definitely cooler too, our 90 degree days are gone and we’re now in the 60’s That is a big jump in temps. and our nights are going to be even cooler. going in the 40’s. It may be that I’ll have to put my flannel sheets on the bed. They are warmer and cozier than the ones I use in the summer. It may be that summer has finally fled our neighborhood.
It’s looking like it’ll be much the same all of next week too. It’ll be time to make some soup and I’m thinking chili sounds very good. With the hot weather I’ve not had any for a long time. And a pan of cornbread is a possibility too. It’s cool enough to turn the oven on. Finally!
I’m going to get outside and get the leaf duty done today. I don’t rake them, I mulch them up with the lawnmower. It’s much easier on the back.
The pictures today are some of the smiling faces in my family. they always make me smile !
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
