We are anticipating a cold front, which should move through during the night. This means a chance of rain in the morning and much cooler temperatures - in the lower 60's tomorrow for our high and down in the 40's tomorrow night! Doesn't that sound delightfully "fall-ish"???
While I look forward to the change in weather, I am enjoying getting caught up on some things here at home today. Yes, I worked some - it's wonderful to have a job where I can work from home, making phone calls and sending out e-mail. I found time to get in for a haircut this morning and that feels mighty good. I even took the time to sit on the porch for a bit! (Of course, I struggled with that familiar sensation of being lazy when I first sat down - but, never fear, I booted that old guilty feeling to the curb as I enjoyed an extra cup of coffee and listened to the birds chirping.)
Making this an even better day, I heard from Son No. 1 (Ben) that he passed his property and casualty adjuster license exam at his new job at USAA. Way to go, Benjaturtle!!!!
Tomorrow morning, Ed and I are having breakfast with Son No. 2 (Sam) at the Dixie Pig, a local "greasy spoon" type of cafe. It is a local institution and, while it's not the healthiest cuisine, it sure is tasty!
Later in the morning, I will be heading out to Bonnie and Matt's new place to help measure for some new blinds in one of the bedrooms and hang some curtains. So, I get to love up on all my grandbabies!!!
Eddie Dale is home from an early day of work and we are going to grab a bite at the new McAlister's Deli, which opened this week, followed by an evening at home - watching movies, no doubt! We are going to pass on the cross-town rivalry football game tonight - which is fine by me. I am never sure who to root for at that one, anyway - I graduated from Cooper, but the district lines changed and all my kiddos graduated from Abilene High. It's quite a dilemma!
So, all in all, life is good.....very good. Don't see that it can get much better! Sometimes, it is the simple things, friends.....just the simple things......
I hope you're stealing a few moments to simply enjoy your day!
Hugs & smiles.....
