It did not cool off much last night. I woke up in a sweat this morning. As I sit here at the computer, I look out through the sliding glass doors at the big Elm tree in the back yard, not a leave is moving. But, a cool front is coming this weekend and will drop the temperature by 10 degrees. Even without A/C in this house, I am thankful to be in Colorado. I did not realize how much I missed being here. Yes, I was a aware of being homesick, but to look out and see Pikes Peak any time I want makes me almost cry. I’m an emotional person. I cry at sad movies, at a beautiful dance routine, or when something gives me joy, like the amazing lavender plants growing all over Colorado Springs. Yard after yard filled with blooming lavender is a glorious sight.
I bought my own pot of lavender to plant. It is starting to bloom. There is a small garden in the corner of the back yard where it will thrive. I will plant it there so when I have my morning coffee at my desk, I can see it.
Well, the unpacking is progressing. Most of my clothes are unpacked and put away. What amazes me is how much bedding I have. Goodwill here I come. I still have a lot of boxes to go through, so had better get busy.
Everyone have a great day. Take care of your selves and be safe.
