“Sun is shining. Weather is sweet. Make you wanna move your dancing feet.”

What a glorious morning! The air is cool, a breeze is blowing and the sun is bright in the sky. It is only 70˚ and the day will stay cool with a high of only 75˚. I figure after this last week of heat and high humidity today is a reward from Mother Nature.

Earlier I could hear a basketball being bounced on the street and the sounds of kids’ voices. Henry barked. Any sound is a surprise to him as my street is usually so quiet. Now, the only sounds are birds. Henry and Maddie are sleeping.

All my windows and doors are open. I can feel a cool breeze coming from the window behind me, a north window. It is almost chilly.

I bought a pair of new sneakers, red sneakers. The soles and sides are white, and I love the contrast. I saw the sneakers in a catalog and decided I needed those red sneakers. My summer shoes are really sandals. I have a black pair and a pair with muted colored straps. I wanted real color, bright color, and I got it.

I remember a teacher at the school where I worked. He had actually been my chemistry teacher when I was a senior in high school. It felt weird observing him in the classroom and writing up what I saw. He had changed over the years. The one thing I remember most about him, the older him, was that his clothes never matched. He’d wear a striped shirt with plaid pants or a shirt in a bright color with pants that clashed. We all noticed, but we just chalked it up to him being old. I think in some way my new sneakers came from this story.

My garden has new blooms, two are orange and one is yellow. I stood outside this morning and inhaled the scents of garden. While I was standing there, I noticed my little library door was open so I went over and checked the library. I was glad there was no new bird hole. Everything was fine. There are even new books including a Golden Book. I’m glad people are using my library.

I have no lists for today and nothing planned. I’m going to walk barefoot on the grass. I’m going to sit on the deck and read. I’m going to be lazy.

    I send best wishes and salutations to Christer.

    Now England move on to the World Cup semi final on Wednesday. I don’t even know what to say. We won it in 1966 (I remember it) and made the semi final losing to Germany in 1990 (unfortunately I remember it)

    The MDH immediate family will assemble for the 2 pm kick off. Oh my goodness

      Congratulations! Well deserved win! To be honest, there was only one team on the field today 🙂 🙂 When the entire tactics is to defend one self it is hard to make a goal 🙂 🙂 I really hope they win the World Cup!

      • Hedley Says:

        Thank you so much Christer. I thought they played very well and shut down any chance for a fast break from Sweden

        I hardly dare to dream

        My Dear Hedley,
        I’m jumping on the England bandwagon!!

    • Birgit Says:

      Congratulations, England!
      Unfortunately I missed it and just saw a summary.
      Why is the next one on Wednesday??? I can’t watch!
      England, please win so I can see your team on Sunday 🙂

    Cloudy almost all day here and we even got some drizzle in the early morning. It stayed cool all day and now it looks like the clouds will blow away so they might get the prediction for tomorrow right, hot and sunny.

    I can only remember how one of the teachers were dressed when I went to school and it was unusual at least during winter He was young, modern, had a huge golden earring, openly gay which was very unusual in the late 70’s and loved by all kids in the school. Every winter he wore military boots and a huge fur coat 🙂 🙂 I think it might have been a wolf fur. So I think most other teachers were dressed as one was thinking they should 🙂

    Have a great day!

    Christer.

      Christer,
      Today was a delight and tomorrow is supposed to be the same. It will even get to the 50’s tonight. I have closed a few windows from the chill.

      When I first started teaching, men wore suit jackets and ties and women wore skirts and dresses. By the time I was retiring, men wore all sorts of shirts and no ties or jackets, and women wore pants. The dress code was a lax one.

      Have a wonderful day!!

    Today has been a very lazy day. Unfortunately, I’m doing my reading on the couch with AC going full blast because the humidity is high with a temperature in the low 90s.

    Although I don’t have much fashion sense, I don’t understand why plaids, stripes and bright colors worn together are considered a faux pas. If you like the look then you should just wear it! Personally, I dress very conservatively with lots of blues and grays. We wear uniforms at work with charcoal gray slacks and blue button down or golf shirts. At work we finally ditched the useless ties and blazers, except for our British colleagues who don’t believe in following company standards except there own. In the entire global company only they wear coats and ties. 😦

    Did you get tennis shoes or high tops? I own one pair of white New Balance cross trainer shoes to go along with my one pair of black Rockport black oxfords for work. I replace them when they are throughly worn. The men’s fashion industry couldn’t survive on customers like me. 🙂

      Bob,
      No AC on in the house today. It is cool outside and will get cold tonight, down to the mid-50’s.

      I think plaids and stripes just don’t go together. They sort of clash. My clothes are an assortment of styles and colors, but I do try to mix and match. I figure I want to look good and knowing what to wear is part of that. I guess that chem teacher didn’t know about style.

      I got tennis shoes. I do have three pairs of high tops I bought a while back: they are green, purple and a bright blue. I like them!!~

      • Bob Says:

        I also mix and match. Gray shorts with blue shirts or blue jeans with gray shirts. 🙂 I hate cloths shopping and my spouse buys most of my cloths. She knows to stick with blues or grays, no browns or greens for me.

        An interesting article you might find interesting.

        Bob,
        Those are such drab colors. I chuckled at your no browns or green, both also pretty drab if you’re talking dark green.

        I got halfway thought that article and will read the rest later. I remember when Texas was democratic, and I know it is now republican. I think I haven’t given Texas liberals enough thought. I did love this sentences, FM Texas is the silky voice of city dwellers, the kingdom of NPR. It is progressive, blue, reasonable, secular, and smug—almost like California. ” The almost like California gave me a chuckle.
