animated lone

(no subject)

I'm exhausted because I didn't sleep well last night. With a missing husband and a hacking cough, I stayed up until about 2 and dragged up at 7. And I played for 2 hours with preschoolers this morning. Finally, I had to go out to the store to get oranges, limes, lemons, and potatoes for a science experiment.

I feel fairly cheerful in spite of it all. The weather is perfect--it's the first good day of fall. The air is clear, the sky is a beautiful blue, and the temperature has a hint of the vegetable crisper about it. Fall is announcing "Today is the day." And I get to be out in it instead of cooped up in a cubicle.
