The remainder of the week will be mild, clear days and chilly nights, perfect for the beginning of October. The first walnuts have fallen, and the squirrels nabbed them right away. I enjoyed watching the furry-tailed rodents scampering along the back fence with their protein-rich prizes clamped in their mouths. It's well worth a few nuts to be so entertained.
I grow ever more distracted and thus ever more forgetful of such things as eating. About five o'clock this evening I felt faint, and realized that I'd eaten nothing solid all day, and had drunk only a single glass of orange juice about noon. There was no time to cook, so I just made a quick peanut butter sandwich with which to get my blood sugar back up. Now I probably won't want dinner until after ten o'clock, and I'll probably forget to make it. Ah, the perils of aging.
