I'm not a wimp!

I'm not a wimp, a little crazy maybe, but not a wimp.

I'm hanging onto summer with all my might. Today in Colorado it was in the mid 50s. But the sun was shining and the sky was bright blue, so I decided to fortify myself and work outside on the patio, as is my habit in the summer.I had on velour sweatpants, a T-shirt, my DH's worn flannel shirt (on the arm of the chaise), a burgundy throw from the living room, and a black knit scarf. It was delightful, but by late morning I had also added my velour hoodie, with the hood up. My chaise is in perpetual shade.

My chair is pulled so close to the house so I can slide open the door for my little dog without having to get up. It's the perfect summer office. I've got my lap desk, laptop computer, telephone, and jug of H2O. What more do you need?

As long as I'm comfy, I can write and write and write and write and write and write and write and write and write and write and write . . .

Me too. I am hanging on to summer but I'm afraid it escaped us today. Brrrrr. You were so brave.

It *warmed up* to 64 didn't it? LOL.
We still have some warm days left. Just not this week.

I have your bathroom shots up today!

It was wonderful yesterday! Looks like more of the same today, but breezy.

I love the cool weather, but I don't want to sit out in it. You are a brave girl!

Hi Susan! (accidental poet)

I'm writing a novel with a working title of "Many Happy Returns." It's about a woman who l-o-n-g-s for the empty nest, but life seems to be getting in the way.

I also work my day job from home, so I sit on the patio when I'm on the clock for them.
