a bit of this, a bit of that

The National Weather Service is predicting our first “fall like” storm tomorrow.

For Seattle, that means rain, wind, possible power outages.

It means that fall is closing in on us, and I’m ready for it!

It’s been a hot dry summer here in the PNW, and I’m ready for rain, cooler temps, and hot soups for dinner )along with a load of fresh bread with a nice crust). I’m not complaining. At my age, I try to remain grateful for every day I can swing my legs out of bed and get ready for another day!

Ha!

Kids are getting ready to go back to school-my youngest grandchild is taking advanced placement courses and Chinese this fall. Where does the time go?

I got my free copy of Windows 10 (FREE) and downloaded it to my laptop. It’s working pretty good so far.

Washington State has been dealing with lots of wildfires; I’m hoping the rain helps put some of these fires out. I’m not always a praying kind of gal, but I’ve been sending out good thoughts and hoping our neighbors and firefighters stay safe.

I’ve not been blogging a lot these days, because Facebook is so damn easy. I sometimes think about the days I would rush home and get ready to push out my daily blog posts. Hell, a long Facebook post is three paragraphs! Add a picture or a smiley face and you’re done!

As for my reading, I’m re reading the “In Death” series of books, in order. I own a lot of them, and borrow the rest from local libraries. On Kindle, of course.

It’s been almost 14 months since I retired, and I’m still in a kind of weird space. I’m really enjoying not working. I miss the money, of course, but my heart just isn’t into going out and working every day. I’m enjoying looking after the family, doing yard work, trying out new recipes, and sleeping in once in a while. It’s a lot less stressful, and something I’ve needed to do for myself for a long time.

So if you take the time to read this, I thank you and hope you are doing well.

Come on, Fall!
