Thanks, Snowflake. It is not quite 70, but we are supposed to see the high 80s today. I wish it were a little cooler, but I will take this weather over 90s any time!

You have a nice day, too, Victoria! What are your plans for today? Tomorrow, for us US residents, it will be a holiday for us--Labor Day. Last year, I would have been eager for any and all vacation/holidays. Since I retired earlier this year, every day is a holiday for me, LOL!!!

We went out to do our errands, and when we got home a pipe from our dishwasher broke. We had water an inch deep in our kitchen, we sopped it up, moved the fridge and just about used every towel we own to get all the water. Then I fixed the pipe, and cleaned up under the cabinet.

It's always something!


I need a nap.
