So, here it is Tuesday, though I thought it was Wednesday until I looked at my work calendar on the refrigerator. This week is out of sync because I didn't work Monday, so in my mind Sunday would have been my Monday. It seems as though it's not the days of the week I remember as much as the days days that I either work or don't work.
There's a steady breeze shaking the branches of the river birch outside my window, and you'd think the leaves would be ripping themselves off since we've had some cold mornings, but nope. Temps are predicted to climb up into the mid to upper 50s (F) again today. While our overnight temps can drop down into the low 30s (F), our daily highs are always in the mid 50s (F). This is a nice autumn.
The cabinet doors got their first coat of paint yesterday. One more before they get hung, and then a 3rd around the top and on the front just to add a bit of toughness. Remember, paint is a finish and needs to be treated like one. The more coats, the more durable it is. That's a problem with those "one coat" paints people use because they're too lazy to do 2 coats. One coat is easier to scratch off.
Nestled in among the leaves, here's another rose from my garden.
