Good morning all, Hump day - yup, almost half way through the week. Coffee, in great quantities is necessary this morning. I know it's going to be a long day with my trip down to Mayo & most likely back. kt has a half day of school - PCAs have a key to the house (as does kt) & will meet kt at the bus. If I'm smart, I'll start something in the slow cooker before I leave this morning - just haven't a clue what. A better idea is to order pizza or Chinese this evening. Looks like the stormy weather of yesterday & last night has let up for today! There is definitely a touch of autumn in the air - the leaves are turning & there's that hint of cold each morning. I'm already collecting leaves for my nature journal (I sketch the leaves in my journal). husband & kt are on the lookout this year for the bright red & orange leaves for me. I had an abundance of yellow & gold leaves last year. I'm rambling.....sorry Have a good day - keep it calm & simple today.
