I was out and about all day today. I went to the gym for a 9:15 am class, then on the h annual appointment with my dermatologist. All is well there. And then I was of to Hyannis to do something I should have taken care of two years ago. My car was bought in both my name and Mark’s, and I needed to go to Motor Vehicles to get the title in only my name. It was not as straight forward as I had thought, but actually the staff there was extremely helpful and helped me get the job done. Then I headed to Hyannis Honda to get a new key fob. I stupidly lost my keys in a field of milkweed a couple of weeks ago. I was getting milkweed for the Monarch caterpillars and somehow my keys fell out of my pocket and feel into the tall grass. I searched and searched and didn’t find them, but luckily had an extra key in the glove compartment. I thought I could survive without the remote key fob, but it is just too frustrating. Unfortunately, even though I had called ahead, Hyannis Honda did not actually have the replacement fob for my car. So, it has been ordered and I will return next Tuesday to get the key cut and the fob programmed. While there they told me I needed to get a new passenger seat air bag as the one I have has been recalled. They will do that on Tuesday as well. I then returned to Falmouth and ran a few errands. By the time I stopped by Heather’s on my way home, it was almost time for dinner. I wanted to check in to get my ‘marching orders’ for the next few days. Heather is out of town tomorrow and Saturday and Jed, Jonah, and Sam are out of town on Saturday, Sunday, returning on Monday. Ollie will be with me tomorrow night and all day Saturday until Heather returns. We worked out all of those details and then I headed home. Not an exciting day, but productive.
We have had a run of lovely fall days with moderate temps and enough sunshine to make me happy. But tonight the NNE winds blow in at 15 to 25 miles per hour. This will cool things down considerably for tomorrow and especially tomorrow night when the temp will dip into the 40’s for the first time since last spring. Saturday will also be a bit cool, but on Sunday the winds shift back to the SW and our beautiful, mild fall weather will return. So we will plow through tomorrow and look forward to warmer days starting on Saturday.
