Date: Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Weather: Overcast, Wintry Mix in the Afternoon; High 62, Low 19 degrees F
Location: At Home in The Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
Interesting weather day. This morning was a balmy 62 degrees, by noon the temperature started to drop, and not long after the rain began. It currently just below freezing outside and during the night the temperature will drop below 20 degrees F. And in parts of Falmouth, we had snow this evening. There was none here by the water, but just a mile away at Heather and Jed’s, there was snow.
I spent my late morning at my very first book club meeting ever. I was reluctant to join a book club as I wasn’t interested in having someone dictate what I read, but what I thought, today was a great experience. It is a great group of women with diverse interests and I think we can learn a lot from each other. We all made suggestions for future books and decisions were made that pleased all. Being the first organizational meeting, it went a little longer than expected. I got home just after 1 pm and it was pouring rain. I had planned to come home and get the last of the summer items put in the basement before the deep freeze tonight, but I saw that my neighbor and landlord Shirley was home, so I went over for a visit. She is currently living closer to Boston with her 101-year-old sister Doris but was in Falmouth today for doctor appointments. We had a great visit and by the time I headed back across the driveway, the rain had let up and I got those last summer items into the basement. I then spent a couple of hours doing paperwork. I can be an organization freak at times, and evidently, I was just that this summer. I was so organized that I filed unopened mail that I discovered today. Thankfully there was nothing that was time sensitive.
I spent time this evening talking to friends. Alan Kanegsberg is having his second knee replacement on Thursday, so I called to wish him luck. Actually I talked to Helaine and she relayed my good wishes to Alan. Later I talked to Lynne Kirwin in Michigan. They got 10 inches of snow yesterday and the temps there are in the single digits. Tomorrow is going to be a a freezy day here, but then it warms up a bit again. These wild weather swings can make one dizzy.
