We're back to cooler weather
We even got some clouds today
Which makes for some pretty sky
Had a short visit from Son and LMT
LMT and I played with Play Doh

A beautiful sunny day
Getting the car washed makes it feel brand new
Took a cat nap to get rid of a headache and I feel much better
Slowly recovering from travel tiredness
Grateful I don't have to go back to 'that job' I had and can rest when I need to
