Happy Friday everyone!
Today is a random post, mostly because I'm running late in writing it and because I don't have anything in particular to talk about. First thing: prayers to all those suffering from or still in the path of any of the horrible weather, storms, fires, etc. raging through the country. It's no laughing matter, certainly, especially for those who have lost friends and family members, but Mother Nature certainly has a way of reminding us just how small and mortal we are.
It's humbling, even for someone like me who is witnessing it from the safety of the sidelines.
In other weather-related though not nearly as tragic news, the weather around here has taken a chilly turn. And I'm fighting it. Since I'm still unemployed, I see no reason to have to hang up my flip-flops yet. But when I sit at the counter, typing away at my computer, my tootsies are cold. And the kitties all curled up in the bedspread sure are a temptation to join. They know it's naptime weather out there. But they still want me to crack open the window by the counter, where they like to sit on stools and watch/small/hear the world outside. I can't say no to their plaintive little mews, but it makes my toes even colder, and I wonder how I'm going to break their habit before the *really* cold weather hits.
The family will be traveling to Disney World in just over a month for our Fall Break. I'm watching Irma, wondering how she'll affect my destination. But she's so close and Fall Break is far enough away that I can't predict and don't want to waste the energy to worry about something I can't control. Instead, I'll send up more prayers for all those in her path.
So, bad weather and job interviews... looks like I'm already missing summer like Nan! ;-)
