There's decent moonlight tonight, encouraging me to note that the sun is much easier to deal with when its light is being reflected from the moon than it is when it is falling directly on the earth and heating everything up. Luckily, today was the peak of the heat cycle, and tomorrow will be considerably cooler, and next week should be very pleasant. There's another heat cycle starting late next week, but the peak of that one should be a good ten degrees lower than the peak of this one was. After that it's almost October and we should soon be getting some genuinely chilly nights and cool days. I'm so glad summer is almost over.

And speaking of chilly nights, one of the stores has big bags of russet potatoes cheap this week, and on Sunday I'll be picking up a bag for baking. Unfortunately none of the stores has sour cream on sale, so I'll be paying full price for that, partly offsetting the potato bargain. I suppose I could make do with butter only, but a baked potato without sour cream seems very sad to me. That little mound of cool whiteness atop it turns the potato from sensible, everyday food into a festive luxury.

And speaking of festive luxuries, while rooting about in the cupboard this evening I came across a package of Pepperidge Farm cookies I'd forgotten I had. They are the kind with chocolate chips and pecans, and will make a nice desert tonight— at least those I haven't used to spoil my dinner will. But since dinner is going to be a microwaved burrito, the spoiling isn't all that great, although it does mean I won't be hungry until eleven o'clock or so. No problem. It's still a bit too warm in here, so I think I'll go out and sit in the moonlight for a while as the house cools a bit more.
