Katie is asleep in the corner here is her room, on her other favorite blankie, the red one that her Auntie Karen knitted for her as a welcome to the family gift back when she was gotchad. She is snoring to beat the band! At night when she heads into bed, she parks next to my head and slips her face into my ear. All is well despite tickling from the whiskers; until the snoring starts. Hers.
Anyway, I posted in Face Book that I went to the park this morning as there was a vestigial coolness to the lightest breeze up there as long as I was under the shadows of the trees.
You can see the shadows on the other side of the park as well. I love Fall, and it is well on its way. My Dogwood is losing a few yellowed leaves now and its berries are out in clusters.
I sweated as though I had swam (swum??) the entire walk! I haven't been up there hardly at all since the heat and humidity that stayed without a break (until today) was so horrible. I joined a gym so as to use their treadmill instead. At least, though you work up a sweat, you're not in the same shape as though you were outside under the sun.
Thought to take a chance this morning and got up there just about 9. Plenty of shade so I started trotting.
Did I tell you that as a gift, I am being taken to Biltmore House for my birthday this month? And over night as well. The entire family are going as well. This is a first. The boys are renting a Van so we can all travel together. They are paying my Hotel fee, admissions to functions, meals, the trip-- and I have the pleasure of their company as well. Riches to me, having them all together including grandchild and my daughter-in-law, whom I love. We are also headed to Blue Ridge Parkway too for photography opportunities. I can hardly wait!
You guys doing anything good today? xx
