Fall Is In The Air

One never knows what each year will bring in the weather.

This is the week of the Shrimp Fest, and we have definite memories of one not too long ago when we couldn't stand to stay there very long because it was so hot. This year, though, weather predictions sound very pleasant. We plan to attend Friday.

Today we turned on our heat for this first time this fall, and the smoke alarm gave its quick response. Not that surprising — we turned it off for a few minutes and then turned it on again. We've been enjoying the cooler weather, but brought in the tropical plants that don't care for temps in the 40s.
