What a fine day it is today!
It is sunny and 67 degrees (19 C). There is just the slightest of breezes. The grass is still green, and most of the leaves are also still green, though a few of them have started turning the traditional reds and yellows of autumn. The sky is a lovely, dark blue and decorated here and there with puffy white clouds.
And, as if that were not enough, last night was Daylight Savings Time (DST) and so I got to enjoy an extra hour of sleep this morning. And not only enjoy it, but enjoy it guilt-free!
And not only is it a beautiful day, but I have actually been productive. I vacuumed up the carpets. True, I did it mostly because the workers who replaced some of the windows in my house on Friday left some broken bits of glass here and there (many of them microscopic slivers).
Of course, one cannot just simply do a household chore. I had to take the vacuum cleaner out into the back yard and give it a good cleaning. I hosed out the HEPA filter (which was nearly completely clogged) and Roto-Rooter’d out the vacuum lines and tubes with a drain snake, and generally cleaned it up. THEN I vacuumed the carpet.
And since it was such a nice day outside, I dug out the tree trimmer and cut back some branches that were scraping against the house and against my brand-new windows.
But you know who the REAL winner is in all of this?
It is my cat.
She is enjoying the large sunny patches of light that are now flooding in through the new windows that are not fogged up with age and moisture (kind of like me).
I think I will model my life after hers. She toils not, nor does she weave … and yet, her food and water dishes are always full.
Enjoy the rest of your day, fellow bloggers, for by 5:00 it will be pitch black.
