Friday, August 31, 2012

It's a real fine morning in Lloyd, Florida where Vergil got in late last night and Jessie got a call this morning informing her that she'd gotten the job at the hospital in Asheville that she applied for a week ago and we're all thrilled because the hospital where she's now working, is almost an hour's drive away which means that her already long night hours are even longer so this is good, good news.

Ah. Sigh. Things are so good when they're good. Aren't they?

And really, believe it or not, I don't have much else to say this morning. Our sense of fall has mostly disappeared like that critter into the brush I saw on my walk yesterday. Just melted away and it's back to hot and humid and the mosquitoes are so bad again that going outside is torture. They dive in flocks to perch and pierce on arms, shoulders, necks, ankles, faces, wherever they find to land. Sure, we can spray ourselves with poison and we do if we're going to be outside for awhile, necessarily, but we hate it.

Ah well. Things will change. They always do.

For good and for bad.

Happy Friday, y'all.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Have a good one, Mary. Good for Jessie!

  2. it sounds heavenly over there, and that makes me so happy.

  3. I could not imagine driving for an hour after night shift. Makes for a looooong shift. There is something different on the fatigue factor between a day shift and a night shift. I hope she enjoys her new job!

    The mosquitoes will be gone soon. Two nights ago I was enjoying a mosquito-free night. Little bastards!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
