Today’s post is coming late. A lot of bustling about has been going on around here in the last 24 hours. But oh my, what a glorious, sunny day we are having! I cannot believe the temperatures for October in Maine. This morning, Simon and I ventured out for a coffee for me and a fruit smoothie for him, all bundled with sweaters and hoods. Boy, were we surprised by the warmth when we stepped out, and quite quickly we shed the extra layers.
This morning Hubby left for an overnight trip to Oktoberfest in New Hampshire, and Simon and I attended the birthday party of a close family friend. (More about that later.) Upon our return home, Simon crashed right out for a nap, and I am enjoying what seems like the first quiet in a couple of days.
Tonight it will be just me and my boy. I am baking us a squash to go with supper, and might give the child a bath. As for me, once he is in bed I have a mountain of laundry and other domestic tasks to tangle with that have been put off for days.
