Earlier this week I got the urge to think out loud which worked out well because today I happen to be in San Diego for work. Yep, traveling west again, just when I finally got acclimated back to the east coast after our trip to Hawaii. At least this is only a 3 hour time change and it’s just a 4 day trip.
We had some nice fall weather last weekend but it was really confusing. Lately I have felt like I am not oriented to the time of year it is. Like when I try to think about where I am in time I question if it’s stills spring or summer and then finally remember that it’s fall. I guess it just feels like the summer flew by and September didn’t really happen because we were in Hawaii.
I was going to sit out on our deck Sunday morning and realized it was a little too cold! I would have had to wear layers and I just wasn’t up for that. A little later though it was perfect weather for a walk!
Do you know that our middle cushion for our deck furniture finally got delivered? It was just 3 months after we actually ordered everything.
Hopefully we will have a few more months of good deck weather once I am finally done with traveling and now that the deck is fully furnished. I would also love to figure out how these bugs are getting into our enclosure. Rob has filled in any gaps we can find, and these are not small bugs. We seem to always get wasps and stink bugs. They hang out on the screen trying to escape.
I think I have become slightly more addicted to coffee over these past few weeks. I need a little extra to get through the first few days of being back but it’s become a habit to drink 2-3 cups rather than 1-2. I need to get back to my regular routine again!
We took advantage of a quiet weekend at home by trying a new restaurant. For those in the Baltimore area, it was La Food Marketa in Quarry Lake- a spinoff of The Food Market in Hamden, featuring Central and South American cuisine. We thought the food was good, but the service wasn’t great. It seems like they just need to get into a better flow…there were lots of people working but not efficiently, if that makes sense.
We finished up the night with some drinks on our front porch. I’m gonna miss being able to spend so much time outdoors.
Do you feel like it’s fall or are you stuck in another season?
Any tips for keeping these bugs away?
Did you have cooler weather last weekend?
