A Pleasant Cool Day and Watermelon

It’s nice and cool today, just got back from my walk around the complex and enjoyed getting out of the apartment. I walked 45 minutes and checked my mailbox while I was out. It was empty but the bills will soon be coming in. Some guy was working on his, he couldn’t get it to lock. I told him to go to the office to let them know before they leave for the day, I did all my notifications before I left for my walk. I had watermelon for a pick me up when I got back. Now I’m going to read a bit in my third Janet Evanovich. I started reading it yesterday so I haven’t gone far but I’m loving it. She’s so funny and I don’t care to read anything serious right now. The title is Eleven OnTop. I’ll figure out why she chose that title later. Hope you all had a good day.

I had a nice drive to the craft store. I am pleased as you can imagine for the cooler temps.

I’m pleased too for now but I dread this cold weather coming in.

@RubyHawk I can't lie I do as well but I must admit it beats a water storm.

@sharon6345 I think you’re right. I certainly don’t want any flooding. We’ve already had too much rain.

I'm glad you had a good day. Watermelon is a good pick-me-up. Enjoy the book.

@just4him It was the last serving in my fridge but It’s probably also the last one in the store. I might not find another’ one until next year.

Yes, just to be out of the apartment and looking at the scenery and passers by is relaxing.

@RubyHawk Omg Lol That's not rude. I would have asked me the same. Wow, sorry but I don't get how anyone would consider that rude. I'm not sick I'm not disabled I am lazy.

I've been reading her books since she started with the first one. I can't wait for her newest one to come out in November. Her series are all numbered and I love that her main characters are in all of her books. Can't read them without laughing or getting hungry with all the talk about food.

She has her own style I finished that book and I’m ready to start Water for Elephants. I’ve only read a few pages but I’ve heard it’s a good book.

@RubyHawk I've also heard Water for Elephants is a good book. I have it but haven't gotten around to reading it. My "to read" pile is pretty high these days Hope you enjoy it and let me know

@Marilynda1225 My to read books are stacked everywhere while I read Stephanie Plum. I think Water For Elephants is a serious book so I might go back to lighter reading until I’m ready for more serious reading.

@Courtlynn I’m afraid we won’t see watermelons until next year. I might be wrong maybe some will e shipped in from Florida or California.

I can imagine this is a time for light reading. It is good that you got out and walked around, I need to do that more often.

Thank you. You can see my tiny kitchen behind the plant. It was the last of my watermelon. I doubt I’ll find more.
