Yesterday morning, around ten o’clock, the skies were serene with an almost imperceptible breeze.
Later in the afternoon, the sky turned grey, and a passing rain shower glided by.
The skies became clear again, and the sunset was breathtaking.
Now, a day later, around ten o’clock, the rains returned.
The breeze today found its strength in the far-flung outer bands of Hurricane Irma, and it’s robust. I can hear the wind hitting the house in unrhythmic gusts. I just learned that Irma slammed a place called Cudjoe Key in the Florida Keys this morning.
What a difference twenty-four hours makes.

The Celebrated Satsuma
Today I got a satsuma from someone I know . It was freshly-picked this morning and still has its stem and leaves on. I like the taste of satsumas – kind of orange-like, but not. This is a real treat. Sometime I’d like to get enough of them to make marmalade.
As part of my downsizing project in this Year of Change, I’m in the middle of going through all the doilies I crocheted years ago. So many years ago, they are now considered vintage. I decided to keep all those my aunt crocheted, plus only a few of ones I made. If the majority of them are sitting in a box, why store them when others can enjoy them?
The Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series after all these years. The final game sure was a nail-biter, and there even was a rain delay to add to the drama. Hey! Hey! Holy Mackerel! No doubt about it! It’s about time for that win, in this Year of Change.
We all could use a winning year, don’t you think?
