First Day of Fall

Happy first day of Fall!  It started out being another hot day, but, in the evening, the clouds moved in and it cooled down.  We were hoping for rain, but the rain stayed to the south of us. 

I had taken the day off from work, today, because daughter was flying back to Berkeley, in the afternoon.  We had a relaxed morning, then, I dropped her off at the airport.  Came home and continued to sew on the 2nd wall hanging.  I cut out the batting and the backing; just need to sew on the binding. 

Later in the evening, I cleaned out the fridge, took the trash cans to the curb, and put water to the garden.  I had been holding off watering, hoping for rain.  Friday's weather forecast had said there might be rain on Monday.  But, according to today's weather forecast, the anticipated rain would continue to stay to the south of us and there's no rain in the forecast for the rest of the week.  Had it rained, then, today's post title could have been "Rainy Days and Mondays".  :)  And I wouldn't have had to water the garden.

Daughter arrived safely in Berkeley and made her way to her apartment by 4:00 p.m.  She had a little time to relax, before going to her 5:30 p.m. class.  Her class was supposed to end at 7:00 p.m., but it ended at 8:00 p.m.!  She called me to say she was at the bus stop and then, again, when she got to her apartment.  Then, we went on the computer and video chatted.

Around 10:30 p.m., I discovered that I had left the fridge door very slightly ajar after I cleaned it, earlier!  Oh, dear!  The inside of the fridge wasn't even cool, let alone cold!  I turned the dial to make it colder and closed the door - hopefully, nothing spoiled.  I can't believe I did something silly like that, but, I guess I've been a bit distracted, lately.

Today, I am grateful for:

- A safe flight for daughter
- A day off from work
- Time to sew
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Cooler weather

How was your Monday?  Have you had a good start to your week?


  1. Glad your daughter made it back safely and you were able to have the day off. I hope everything in your fridge survived!

    My Monday was good. Was productive and also relaxed when he was sleeping.

    1. Jess, I'm glad you were able to get some time to relax as well as be productive. Often, it is hard to find that balance, but it's important to our well being. The things in the fridge survived, thank goodness!

  2. Sorry you left the refrigerator door ajar.. I have done that too..Made me so mad,lol.
    Proud daughter made the trip back to school well, Know you miss her.
    The quilting is so fun.. Know your enjoying it.
    Stay cool.

    1. Fortunately, the things in the fridge didn't go bad. I think if I hadn't discovered it when I did, I'd have had to throw out a bunch of stuff. Yes, I'm missing my daughter, but I see her on the computer, every day, and she'll be coming home for another visit when I go for my surgery. The quilting is very therapeutic. :)
