Today was a glorious Indian Summer day. It was cool and crisp with an azure sky and warm sunshine.
I spent the afternoon with my friend Mary. Her new puppies are fun to watch prancing and rolling around. When they are through chasing each other they flop down, exhausted, immediately falling to sleep. They're so cute.
I brought a few of the last of the Italian plums, as well. I love her plums. The yellow jackets are so drunk on the over-ripe fruit that has fallen to the ground, that they just flop around. One landed on my foot and I had to brush it off.
