Homebody

I was unable to go shopping today for lack of transportation. Fortunately I'm not out of anything essential, but I must go to Safeway tomorrow, as I have one of their ten-dollar-off coupons that will expire with the day. I can't afford not to have that ten dollars to spend, especially when I have feral cats to feed. Tomorrow there's a chance I'll get rained on, though. Today there was far more sun than yesterday, and very few clouds.

The nights have turned bone-chillingly cold, but this afternoon was quite pleasant, if still somewhat chilly. There was a freshness that was probably a gift of the recent rains, and I almost did a bit more raking when I discovered that I wouldn't be able to shop, but then decided to simply walk about the yard crunching the leaves underfoot instead. They sounded nice— almost like the fire I don't have crackling in my fireplace.

Now I have to figure out which backup meal I'll have for dinner, since I didn't get out to buy my first choice. If only I had popcorn I wouldn't have to decide. This would be a perfect night for popcorn in lieu of dinner.

It probably won't get much below forty degrees tonight. After last night, that's positively balmy!
