Today Dearly Beloved and I were planning on driving north, leafing. Instead I am cleaning and doing everything that I did not do this week because I was gone Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. It is all good. Not what I planned but it will work for me.... Read more

Since Dearly Beloved now is walking in the heat and humidity mid-afternoons I am doing my morning walk in the neighborhood. I was out of the house at 6am. This was not the wisest thing as it is still full dark on the tree-lined streets. First of... Read more
