“My weak spot is laziness. Oh, I have a lot of weak spots: cookies, croissants.”

Last night the wind was ferocious, and it poured. I expected the rain, but the wind was  a big surprise. It kept rattling the window in my bedroom. I was watching Grimm on my iPad and kept muting it so I could hear the wind.

This morning is sunny. I checked the deck from the kitchen window and saw some of the candles once hanging on the trees are missing, probably blown to the ground. I’ll retrieve them later. The birds are still flying in and out of the feeders. I never tire of watching them.

My days have been quiet which leaves me little to chat about here on Coffee. Errands are boring. My laundry still needs doing. I’m not even dressed, but I did get dressed yesterday so that counts. Besides, being busy is overrated.

I noticed that all the bed covers on TV are fluffy. People have pillows under their heads and behind them are pillows which match their quilts. My bed is totally different. The comforter leaks. Every day I find down or what passes for down on the floor. I then find a hole in the comforter and stuff the down in that hole. The holes are easy to find. I had a spread, one I liked. It is now Henry’s spread. He chewed holes in it and frayed the edges. I keep it at the bottom of the bed, and Henry sleeps on it every night. Every now and then he chews on it again. I figure it’s when he is bored. I’ve been shopping for a new comforter and a duvet cover with steel edges.

Baseball will have my full attention today. I’ll cheer for the local boys, for my Red Sox. I’ll have a couple of hot dogs for dinner, perfect baseball food. I’ll wear my Red Sox shirt and my baseball cap with a B. Wally, the Red Sox mascot, will have a prominent place on the table. My NESN bobble heads are Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo. Neither has been calling the regular season Red Sox games. Jerry is fighting cancer again and Don is with San Diego now, but they are still my favorite play by play announcers so I’ll honor their memory by putting them front and center. Go Sox!!

    We still have nice warm summer weather here, 77°F today, still no rain. Climate change in full action, I wonder which kind of winter we’ll get.
    I hope your Sox win / won. We lost soccer against France today as expected but at least it wasn’t boring.
    It’s time for bed now. Old but fluffy.

      Birgit,
      I don’t know what the temperature was today, but I didn’t need the heat so it was warmer than it has been.

      The Sox just won 8-2. They lead the series 2 games to 1. The game was close until the 8th inning when a Sox player hit a grand slam ( a home run when all three bases have runners which then produces 4 runs).

      No fluff left in my comforter but it is old.
