The last two days have been cool and wet here. While out for a walk on Saturday, I saw many squirrels, all of them running around frantically trying to stock up on seeds and nuts before the imminent arrival of winter -- or so it seemed. No doubt summer will return in a day or two.

We went out to breakfast this morning. The restaurant was busy and the service appallingly slow, but they left a thermos pot of coffee on our table, so all was well.

Back to work on Monday!
