Location: At Home in The Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
Three sunny days in a row. I think that is a first for this spring. We had lots of sunshine during the winter, but this spring, particularly April, has been cool, overcast, and rainy. So, the sunny days this week have been a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, when I look at the forecast in Nashville, it looks like thunderstorms for the next four days, then a little sunshine by the first of the week. But it will be considerably warmer, so that is a positive. I leave early in the morning to spend a few days with my sister in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. This is a growing community about 25 minutes from downtown Nashville. It will be two weeks on Saturday since my brother-in-law died and my sister seems to be holding up quite well. Needless to say, I am anxious to get there to spend time with her.
I drove to Hyannis this morning for an annual eye exam. Healthy eyes, no change since last year, so no need for new glasses. All good news. When I go to Hyannis, I always make a stop at Home Depot, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s, and today was no exception. After shopping, I came home and finished the canning of the last few jars of chicken mineral broth, did a little gardening, and then got ready to leave early tomorrow. I watered the plants, cleaned the aquarium, packed up food that won’t last to take to Heather’s, and packed my bag. Then I met the Goldstones at Smitty’s, their neighborhood ice cream shop. We all should have been at Ollie’s first grade music concert, but we got word this morning that it was cancelled as the music teacher couldn’t be there due to a personal issue. Ollie was really looking forward to his first school concert and ice cream at Smitty’s afterwards, thus the reason for a trip to Smitty’s. Some of his first grade friends, who were equally disappointed by the concert cancellation, were also at Smitty’s. After ice cream, I said my farewells and headed home. Tomorrow is an early one, so it is off to bed with me now.
