Weekend Plans Post: Starting to Prepare for Winter
A few weeks ago, we discussed how our 5K jogtime kept getting bumped back. Back to 7, back to 6:45, back to 6:30. We ran at 6 on Wednesday and, wouldn’t you know it, got to our cars in darkness.
Tomorrow, we’re going to jog at 5:30. The end of daylight saving can’t get here fast enough, I tell ya. (Then we can play the “15 minutes earlier!” game again for a while.)
In the meantime, the AC unit has gone from “constantly on” to “intermittently on” to “mostly off” to “let’s put it back in storage and open the window.” The hoodies have moved from the back of the closet to the front of the closet and the fuzzy pants have made it into rotation with the linen pajama pants. Soon we will have to discuss whether we want to switch to the flannel sheets.
Under normal circumstances, I’m excited about the end of Summer and the proper start of Autumn. The temperatures are the best temperatures. The clothes are the best clothes! The food is the best food! The flannel sheets are the best sheets! PUMPKIN PIE!!! There’s a nagging feeling in the back of my head that these things are better when you wear the clothes at work and eat the food with friends.
The flannel sheets are still pretty good, though.
Now that Maribou is back from her trip, we’ve got a bit of catching up to do. Gotta catch up on the laundry. The kitties could use their nails trimmed. Maribou needs a haircut and we’re going to go out on the back porch and take care of that. She’s put in a request to make some Kraft Dinner & Weenies and so I’m going to make that this weekend as well. It’s time for another batch of Lime Cilantro Rice and, this time, I have a reamer so I rather expect the lime portion to go much more smoothly than in the past.
And, otherwise, settle in for the start of the cooler seasons and make sure that we will be ready to get ready for the holidays.
So… what’s on your docket?
