I had plans for the day but they didn't work out. The plans will be shifted to tomorrow. It should be a bit warmer tomorrow, and maybe I'll be able to leave the windows open all day again. That will become more and more of a luxury as the year wears on, and then will become an impossibility until next spring. Soon my gas bill will begin to rise, but this month there was good news. My credit from the state for energy conservation over the summer was actually several cents higher than my electric bill, so all the energy I have to pay for this month is a bit of gas I used in the stove and water heater. The bill was less than seven dollars altogether, complete with taxes and fees. I had been expecting it to be five times that or more. My reward for sweltering through so many hot summer days without air conditioning, I guess.
Though the rain has gone the sky is still partly cloudy, and it was nice to sit watching the clouds drift for a while this afternoon. I might get some more cloud watching in tonight, but I really expect to be asleep before the waning moon rises. I woke up before seven o'clock this morning, and haven't had a nap. I hope I don't fall asleep with my face in my dinner.
