Letting the Sun in

Exercise: shopping.
Keyboard Practice: nope.

It's post number 666. That's 999 upside down, the number of the emergency services in the UK.

    When I wake up in the morning light
    I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
    I pull my blue jeans on

    David Dundas - video of song

That was a song from before any of you were born. Well maybe not, but I suspect I am right on that score.

Today was the first day in I don't know how long - February maybe - that I have worn Jeans. I've been wearing shorts for so long that I can't remember. COVID hit, we stopped going outdoors and I stopped wearing Jeans because it was warm enough not to.

But the weather has changed. For the last two days the heating has come on in the morning. I have gone from keep the blinds closed on the side of the house the sun is shining to having the blinds open and angled to let as many of those warming rays in while they still exist.

Thus, today for my evening walk, when the temperature has dropped to a chilly 65ºF (18ºC) I put on Jeans. Yes I realise that 65ºF may seem positively hot, especially in the northern Europe climate, but it is a lot drier here as California is basically desert - hot during the day, cold at night (clear skies don't keep the heat in like overcast skies do).

It looks like the weather is going to warm up a bit towards the weekend so we may still see 80ºF for a few more weeks before finally it really does start getting cold in November / December.
