A full day . . .

It's far too soon to use the "f" word (fall), but the temperatures this week were so nice we opened up the apartment - it's a little warm, but comfortable enough.

I'm rediscovering how energizing having a day to myself can be - after the boy went to work, I baked a cake, two loaves of bread, swept and mopped the apartment, cleaned the kitchen, did a load of laundry, saw Mr. Perry and got us some big zucchini, corn, peaches and squash, put clean sheets on the bed, and got some quality knitting done. I see some zucchini bread in my future, but probably not 'til it gets chilly.

It's been a good day.

Tomorrow there's more laundry, some yard work, and more fall gardening. So far we have collards and cauliflower, but I have broccoli, spinach, and lettuce still to plant.

I have to agree, I can be very productive when I have a day to myself. I am not sure why, but I think it has to do with not wanting to be totally involved in something when my Beloved is here. I don't know, it is just a phenomenon in my world, and makes me very greatful for days that I am here on my own.
As for the "fall" issue.... may I say I'M LOVIN' IT!!!! The house has been open for three days now, the wind chimes at the front window keep me company and the sounds of outside are inside. I so enjoy having the house open :)
