It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood---and I do mean that literally, as I am currently sitting on my balcony watching the sun rise as I write this. I have to wear my robe...fall is in the air, and the idea of that excites me. It's entirely too bad that our beautiful fall season here in the Midwest is ruined by the idea of the coming winter...they have become much too long and harsh for my personal taste.
I have been up most of the night once again, for various reasons, but mainly due to the "espresso with cream" drink in a can that I bought on the way home from a friends barbecue last night. To be honest, I didn't even give the caffeine a thought, and the coffee drink was really good. Not as good as it should have been to cause a whole, long night awake, but good.
We spent the late afternoon and evening at Mark's friend Kevin's house...his kids were in town and it was great seeing them---for what had been the first time in years. It's funny how you think that only you grow older...but last night was proof that we all do - these kids used to play and run around with mine...and they are now all grown up with spouses and kids. That can only mean one thing---I am REALLY getting old.
It has been a relatively quiet weekend, I have had NO kiddos here...that certainly seems strange. They have been at the lake all weekend, well most of them - and I have heard they have had a great time. The break from the chaos has been good, but today, I hope to see a couple or more of them. It has been the plan all weekend for Mark and I to be at the house working today, I'm not too sold on that idea at this time, however. I guess we'll just see how it goes.
It is MONDAY today, isn't it? In my head---it feels like Sunday. Here goes another week of being all screwed up and not knowing what day it is...There are no construction sounds going on, the gym is not open...no wonder I thought it was Sunday. I have always liked labor day, it's one of the few holidays each year that requires no rituals...
My body is tired today but I feel a walk coming on...I hope that your day today is sunny--fun--and peaceful. Out.
