This morning was the first morning that I was able to see the beginning of my favorite time of year. Well, not the beginning but at least a hint. I love the Fall so much. I pull out of the garage at about 4:45 am. I can see daylight then... until today. Today, it was still dark. The first 'still dark' day. I've lived here in Seattle now for more than 25 years and still I can't get used to how long these Summer days are. I go to sleep while it's still light and wake up while it's still light. That's crazy!

Also crazy? There was no one at the pool this morning! I swam for 55 minutes without seeing a soul. Finally, for the last 5 minutes, two of the regulars came in. It always makes me feel like I missed a memo when no one shows up but me.

I discovered this morning that, apparently, I've been sucking down an empty inhaler for the past few days. I take Spiriva for my COPD. The inhaler has a ticker thingie on the side to tell you when it's empty but the action - the twist, push the button, get the mist - all still works when it's empty so if you don't look, you don't know. I feel fine. I have not noticed any issues or problems breathing or coughing. I wonder what cutting my dosage to every other day would do? Besides saving me $350? I think I might try it.

Also this morning, I reached the end of my toothpaste, emptied my little bottle of hair conditioner and ran out of the body lotion I carry in my swim bag. If today is the last day of my life, it will have been a tidy finish, that's for sure!

Baseball is back today, yeah!! But before the first pitch, I have stuff to do. Stuff around here and then a trip to Costco and a stop at Amazon Fresh to drop off a return.

It's supposed to be warmer today but then get Africa hot for more than a week - according to the TV weather peops. My phone weather apps, however, say it will be about 10 degrees cooler than what the TV people say. Both agree, however, that it will be full sun in cloudless skies which is not good. But, in less than 6 weeks, September will be here. And bring reason to my universe again.
