My morning intentions were simple : take advantage of cooler temperatures and treat myself to an early walk and sit-out on the avenue @ Zeke’s. I gathered my stuff: my journal + pen/s; iPad + iPhone; money; the book in the photo; and off I went. T’was still cool; that was good. About 4 blocks from home, I realized I’d left the plug outlet for my iTools…oops, I might need! I turned around, went back home to retrieve the plug and found a package at the front door – but not for me (for Norman).
Off I went, again and finally arrived at Zeke’s – about a 1.5 mile walk. Ordered coffee and sat at an outside table, ready to take in the sights and resume MSQT. T’wasn’t to be. A woman sat at the table next to me – she was waiting for a bus to take her downtown. We struck up a conversation and maybe 6 buses later, she decided to continue her journey.
By then, my coffee cup was empty and I was ready to make the return trip home. I went inside Zeke’s to get some water for the journey and ran into a former neighbor; we chatted a bit and went our separate ways. On my way home, I ran into another friend and we walked about a half block together, parting company at the library. I meandered through the park, eventually arrived home, ready for a shower. Sadly, the heat and humidity had returned.
After my shower – not sure the time, I did a couple loads of laundry and went upstairs to write this blog post. But first, I checked email and you probably know what happened… I got caught up in the email …
It is now 5:20 pm. Laundry done; responses to email; a couple friends’ blog posts read and comments made – Welcome Home Mary! And finally, this post written and soon to be published.
Joining Kat and friends for their tales of unraveling; do take a look.

Interesting book! What a lovely and unexpected morning! 🙂
That book looks intriguing. Sometimes the unexpected brings a nice change of pace. I’ve been walking early to beat the heat and will be sooo glad when I can walk later in the day. Sweater weather is my favorite.
Well how nice to be around those who want to chat a bit. When winter hits, our interactions become fewer and fewer. We lived in our old sidewalked town for thirty years. We ran into someone everywhere. here it is so different. I kind of love the anonymity .
It’s really nice when your day can just unfold as it will though. Catching up with friends (new and old) makes it all worth it.
I love all the people you met up with that shaped your morning!
That is so great that you got to have conversations with so many people on your outing! About the only people I talk to these days are the sales people at stores and my husband… Sigh..
Hello again! in spite of the heat, I love that you’ve managed to be out and about so much this month. Loved the story of your trip to the “upcoming fall reads” show … you always find the most interesting books! I’m TWO books away from covering my Bingo card and I’ve been delighted with many of the titles I stumbled upon. Turns out not having a summer reading plan has worked really well. (and now, of course, I just need to make the time to share what I’ve been reading with y’all).
What a lovely day you had! So nice to just meet up with folks and chat and then go on. Nice to have the time!
