… are bright, sunny, even tho’ a tad bit cool (temp range 37° to 47°) , and just perfect for a brisk mid-afternoon walk on my favorite route: through the neighborhood park.
During MSQT, I played a bit with watercolor pencils and made a quick drawing of the sky and a tree. I hadn’t used the Watercolor app in sometime so I thought it’d be fun to revisit. Me thinks I’ll play some more, a lots more…

The dryer just shut off – a signal that laundry (an all day affair, it seems) is done…and time for dinner before I wind down for the evening. Tomorrow’s another day and there will be left-overs from today’s agenda plus new items that need my attention…
Joining Kat and friends for another unraveled wednesday.

sitting outside @ Zekes… enjoying an iced decaf caramel latté and this lovely summer day before it gets too hot and …watching foot and motor traffic – including a bare-chested man on a motorized scooter – whiz by on the Avenue …feeling the coolness of the summer breeze …
listening to this book – my walking companion – totally mesmerized by not only the story – plausible ??? – but mostly, the author’s way with words: poignant, liltingly graphic. The book is being made into a movie…I’ll be interested in seeing how it compares. I am eager to see how the book ends – for there is mystery and intrigue – but I may also reread in print (digital) as I have in my Kindle library, too.
We’re having a very quiet holiday tomorrow. Wishing you an enjoyable holiday.

6:30 am: On this first day of the return to “normal” time, I stand on the deck, inhale the crisp autumn morning air – it’s only 37°F! I had the presence of mind to put on a jacket and hat…and I’m glad I did! I look upward to the sky, ribbons of pink-tinged clouds and jet contrails, planes headed to National Airport, greet me. Birds swiftly fly toward the morning sun, so fast I can’t/don’t capture with my iPhone.
The tree, “this tree,” that I observe through every season, is fast loosing its leaves. Everyday, I can see more of its magnificent structure. Still, at the very top, are bright yellow leaves…causing me to remember the symphony of color that greets us these days as we walk, ride, drive, are out and about – on errands, on the way to work, play or home. The season is ending; leaves gather on sidewalks, lawns. Mother Nature prepares for the next.
On this thought, I turn to go inside to fix my first cuppa tea and listen to Sunday Baroque…and I think how grateful I am for the life I’ve had… and to welcome another day.
