Ah, the Thursday after Labor Day. The unofficial end to the summer, but where we have a few more weeks until Autumn begins. This is when we enter the awkward temperature phase – still hot and humid, then 70s, then hot and humid, yet the leaves start changing and begin to fall. I noticed some colour today, as well as some leaves falling. It’s storming now, and I’m curious to see what the colour will be like this year will look like since we had a dry spring.
On Sunday, 6 September, Mrs. Brown e-mailed me and asked me if I liked oat milk. I never had the brand she was showing me, but I was interested. It was gluten-free and dairy free, which is why she thought of me. She gets freebies and doesn’t really care for oat milk.
On Monday, Mr. Brown dropped it off and I felt verklempt, as well as grateful. I tried it and loved it. I sent Mrs. Brown a few thank you e-mails. I am thankful for my neighbours, especially since they treat me like family.
On Monday, we had brunch with Aunt Kathy, Uncle Dave, Matt, Aunt Peg and Uncle Tom at Nudy’s in Wayne, PA. It was a lovely two hours and I’m grateful for family.
Aunt Kathy asked if I was going to take any travels this fall. I said, “No. I’m going to do it like I did this spring. I had acute bronchitis three times last year.” I will probably just go to museums and hopefully ice skate, but I’m taking it easy this fall. I actually loved quarantine and I will be doing that in the fall. The only thing that is a definite is going into the office one day per week.
I’m also thankful for co-workers from both jobs, and friends. What are you thankful for this week?
