It’s 80° and too humid to open the house this morning. We watched several deer wander through the trees and cross the creek heading north. They seemed to be looking around as if to say, “Where’s the grass?” We have a cold front coming and possible rain next week. At this point I’ll believe it when I see it. It’s possible some of the grass may green back up for a short time, at least until we get much colder weather.
I slept rather late this morning, Brad woke me just before 10 am. I’m usually awake between 7 am and 8 am, sometimes a little earlier. I stepped outside at about 11:15 to get this photo and decided we’d made the right decision to leave the house closed and the A/C running. There’s a little bit of a breeze now but you can feel the humidity rising from the past several days of dry air. We normally have a good bit of rain around this time of the year and it’s not unusual for there to be rain for Halloween.
My hands have been bothering me lately so I didn’t get much knitting done yesterday. I guess my joints are trying to tell me that we have a weather change on the way. We shall see.
I’m continuing with the Dragonriders series. Now that I’ve read the prequel I’m going back to the seventh book, “Moreta, Dragonlady of Pern.” There are three other books before this one that I don’t have access to on Roku so I may try the bookstore for paperback copies.
I was too tired last night to tidy the kitchen up like I normally do so I have that chore to take care of. All I had this morning was coffee. Just not hungry yet I guess. I’ll head to town in a little while to get my teeth cleaned at the dentist and may stop for a haircut on the way home. I’ll do my best to stay off of the main highways if possible. The traffic is awful lately.
Speaking of traffic…there was a news article this morning in my email about the Dallas North Tollway coming to Grayson County. They are moving north of hwy 380 in Collin County and expect to reach the Collin/Grayson county line in 2030. Actually, that’s sooner than I had envisioned. I figured it would take them at least twice that long. It’s going to impact the farm just west of town. The road that runs on the north side of the farm is supposed to be an access point for the toll road.
Eight years. Hmm. In eight years our grandson Jacob will be seventeen and the youngest, Gabriel, will be ten. Audrey will be fifty-three and I will be 76. Yeah, that tends to put things in perspective for me!
It’s time to tackle my untidy kitchen and then hit the shower. I might even have time for a haircut before the dentist. I checked the Great Clips app and there is no wait time at the moment. Of course that can change pretty quickly and it’s coming up on noon now so I need to get moving!
Have a blessed Thursday, ya’ll.
