Today was a beautiful clear crisp day. So we decided to take a drive north.
This is not that clear but it is out of the truck window. We went to Woodstock
NH. and had lunch at a fun place on Main St. We took the back way home and found
a new place to kayak.
On Sat I went to the town wide yard sale in the next town.
I found these 2 books for 1.00.
And this cute new purse/ wallet.
I came home and made pasta sauce. It is the first time I have made it
from fresh tomatoes. I checked on line for some hints but really
made it to our tastes. Then I made meatballs, so it was pasta for dinner last night.
A neighbor called and told me to pick some zucchini from his garden.
I made bread with blueberries and chocolate cake from the zucchini and I still have
some left over.
Last night we had some heavy heavy rain and vivid lighting warnings
well the lighting never happened thank you very much. But the rain kept going.
we tucked in ate and watched a movie.
My hydrangea made it through the rain without much damage.
The light has changed so much now, the shadows are getting long.
I am not ready for what comes after fall. The long nights and the oil bills.
But this too will pass.
Is it proper for a single girl to have dinner in a bachelor's apartment without a chaperon?
(this came from Bangor Maine. 1956)
Social conventions can do very little to protect a girl really bent on getting into difficulties. Her yardstick should be "Could I tell my Mother where I am?"
a career girl in her twenties and beyond should not say beyond 10-10:30. If others are present she may stay as late as 12 but never beyond.
a good rule is "Avoid the appearance of evil."
(that is the short version)
