I am sure many would find sitting outside on the deck to be a bit chilly but this 57-degree temperature is fine by me. The sun is bleeding around to the backyard and I am sure the front yard is aglow with the early rays of yellow.
The backyard is beginning to look a bit ragged and is in need of being mowed. The frontside of The Haasienda is fine and unless we have several good drenchings, will do for another good week, maybe two. The walnut tree in the front yard is already dropping a number of tiny slim branches with leaves and that allows me to rid the yard of them.
Yesterday, I drew from the mailbox a postcard highlighting The Lincoln Bedroom from the second-floor residence of The White House. My friend, Jeff Carter, spent last week in Washington, DC and Manhattan and remembered me with a view of one of my favorite rooms from one of my favorite houses in The World.
My breakfast is finished and I need to refill my coffee cup. Although Friday and Saturday are non-Zoom days with London, we adjusted our schedules since Thursday was a rest-day for Josh after traveling.
There’s absolutely nothing on my schedule for the daytime and I am contemplating taking a break from the deck to do some thinning out of my bedroom or study. My goal for the next several days is to do some purging and tossing.
Tonight, Laura and I will picnic before watching Springboro Community Theatre’s outdoor production, OLIVER!. I’ve only previously seen three live stage productions of this show.
I discovered a new book to which I am listening, THE ALCHEMIST by Paulo Coelho. I discovered it via a website devoted to quotes from the book, 10 Alchemist Quotes: That Outline How We Should Live.
Make it a great day!
