A mockingbird gave a very long recital in my back yard Friday afternoon, which was enjoyable. That's another reason to be glad the very hot weather is finally gone. I almost never heard a mockingbird from July through September. The bird songs distract me from the noise of the freeway, making my outdoor time more enjoyable. I barely even noticed the traffic today unless I deliberately listened for it.
It's about time I started planning for my next trip out. Banking must be done again soon, and November usually brings some good sales at the grocery stores, due to Thanksgiving. There could be a pumpkin pie in my future. But I'll need to get my sleep schedule back to something more rational before I can go out. I'm hoping the end of daylight saving time will help with that task.
Tonight is Halloween, the calendar on the computer just told me. There probably won't be any kids coming to my door. There weren't any last year. I seldom see kids in the neighborhood, and this year their activities might be more restricted anyway. I'm not even going to bother making any jello shots this year. Too bad, kids. All the more straight vodka for me.
