We had a windy morning and afternoon, and even the still-green leaves were being ripped from the oak trees. The pines shed thousands of needles and I had to sweep the driveway this evening to keep from slipping on them (they tend to roll underfoot when they are on a sloping pavement.) I'm not sure when the wind died down, as I went to sleep this afternoon while it was still blowing. It made up for a bit more of my cumulative sleep deficit, but I I'm sorry that I missed the last part of the wind. I do like a nice autumn wind storm. I just wish there wasn't so much cleanup to do after it.

Now I have to figure out what to do with the night. I don't want to stay on the computer because I fell asleep last night while it was running, and it still hasn't been turned off. It's been going for about thirty hours, and I'm sure it needs a rest. I need to save on the power bill, too, as the nights have been chilly enough to require the furnace to run quite a bit. I hope to keep the October bill below $60.00, or I'm going to come up short for the insurance and taxes at the end of the year.

Not much appetite tonight. I think I'll just have another can of minestrone. It's on sale this week and I'll be able to replenish the supply Sunday. I do like hot soup in chilly weather.
