It's a beautiful Saturday evening. The UW Huskies are playing football on the TV on the small screen over my shoulder as I sit at the desktop computer. The light outside is slowly fading and we pass 7:00.
Tom and I are tired. The weather is changing tomorrow, from warm and sunny - it was 78 today - to cold and wet. We had to make hay while the sun shines.
Tom has been working all week to get the lawn repaired so it would be ready for the rains. He has spent hours and a lot of elbow grease, thatching the dead grass and moss from large patches of lawn that were fried way back at the end of June. Then he spread grass seed and a layer of compost. Today he finished. Let it rain!
Then I harvested the ripe or almost ripe tomatoes and peppers. Tomorrow I'll roast, chop, and freeze some of the peppers.
Charlie/Mewdini came to visit and check out all of the activities. He seemed pretty laid back, with his eyes at half mast, in the summery weather.
It's not all work around here. On Thursday we had lunch with our breakfast group with our friend Jeanne hosting. She is in fragile health and doesn't make it to breakfast now, but she really wants to host an occasional gathering in her home. We make that happen.I'm there but I'm taking the picture.
And of course we still went to breakfast the next morning. It was Friday, after all.
And now we get ready for a weather change. TV Seahawks football and Sounders soccer will keep me occupied on Sunday, along with all of the exercises that keep me mobile. There are more social gatherings in the coming week. The new season of TV kicks in this week.
Fall is falling.
