A Little Bit of Nothing

 Autumn mornings: sunshine and crisp air, birds and calmness, year’s end and day’s beginnings. 

Terri Guillemets

Good morning, everyone.  It's a nice day out there today.  The rain of yesterday has passed and in its wake we have some clear, cool air.  I've said it before.  I think we are in for an early fall, and you won't get any complaints from me.  Along with Spring, it is my favorite time of the year. 

I'm in such a hurry for it to begin that I've dug out my harvest cookbooks and have been marking down some new recipes I plan to try. I also purchased the following book 'Seasons of Our Lives - Autumn'.  The book is a compilation of memoirs of the season from different women.   I am reading it now and loving it.  I love anything that opens up memories long forgotten.

From the description: 

These memoirs from different women are fascinating. Each reveals a moment in time for the authors takeaways or mini-lessons that will help you reflect on the seasons of your own life. And, they just might help you write more dynamically if you decide to share your stories with family, friends, and even more widely.

I was a wee bit  disappointed with lunch yesterday.  I went in all hyped over Chicken Parmesan, and instead, we just had plain breaded cutlets.  They were tasty, yes, but they do make some of the best Chicken Parmesan I have ever had.  I do understand, though.  Today we are having Italian, and not everyone is like me.  I can eat it every day.

Our super has been busy setting up cameras in front of the building.  I love the idea. There  has always been one in front, but now he has four set up in different areas.  We've never had any problems in this building, and I have always felt safe, but even in the safest neighborhoods one must be careful nowadays.  Just a few days ago a 72 year old man was sucker punched on his way home.  He wasn't bothering anyone, just innocently walking home when some young thug turned around and punched him in the face sending him sprawling.  He's now in the hospital, awake and alert, but has a blood clot near his brain.  The building has a camera, and it caught the coward as he did it.  Now, let's hope the police can catch him.

This happens too frequently in today's world. We never thought of hurting an adult when we were young.  Too much respect.  Oh, they had their gangs back then but they basically fought each other over territory.  There was none of this violence just for the fun of it.  Today there are too many guns, too much violence.  These young cowards have no respect for human life.  I am not going to lie.  There are times I see a young man/men loitering on the sidewalk, and I get nervous.  I've even gone so far as to cross the street.  One can never be too careful. 

I must leave early today so it's time to stop rambling and get myself in the shower.  For the next month lunch will be 25 cents in honor of us senior citizens. People are going to come from far and wide for these lunches, so I must be early if I hope to keep my seat.  Talk to you all tomorrow.
