My back yard cricket is chirping again. I missed him while he was silent. Night seems much more hospitable when there's a cricket chirping. It's one of summer's compensations to sit on the porch when the evening cools off a bit and listen to the crickets. In fact I'd consider crickets, cool drinks, and melons to be the best things about summer. If I still lived near the ocean I'd probably add going to the beach to that list, but where I am it's difficult to even think about the beach without getting sad, so I try not to do it. But there, I just made myself sad.

There will be shopping tomorrow, and a trip to the chiropractor on Tuesday. That constitutes a busy week for me in this backwater. The neck adjustment will be welcome, it having been five weeks since my last appointment, and it's been getting pretty creaky the last few days. I hope the September appointment will be only four weeks after this one. That works a lot better for me.

September! I had forgotten how near it was getting. September will bring the Autumnal equinox, the end of summer. I suppose it's too much to hope that September also brings some heavy rain. It has done so now and then in the past, but it's been many years since that happened. I wouldn't mind seeing the grass turn green again before winter sets in. Well, I won't count on it, and if it happens it will be a bonus. Kind of like the unexpected pumpkin pie I found on sale at more than two thirds off on Sunday. It might be cool enough to bake it sometime soon. Tonight I'll have to settle for ice cream, though. It's not terribly hot tonight, but still too warm to have the oven on for an hour.

Now to microwave some burritos. The good kind of hot.
