Picking up pita bread at the Halal bakery today for lunch with friends on Sunday; for that occasion I'll make falafel and while the oil is hot maybe a batch of fried okra. This afternoon and tomorrow will be busy picking up and dusting in advance of the event.
This evening Friends are doing a garden party (it'll be a warm one as we will all be in the yard): a stop to make after the shopping. This is the first "First Friday" since I think November 2019. The winter holidays interfere (this is a couple who teach at the university where I retired) so they hold these during the academic year. The first one in 2020 would have been February, but COVID was a thing by then.
I have sweaters and vests in the hall closet here that have on occasion been loaned to visitors who found themselves without adequate warm apparel. Hopefully someone loaned you a sweater or a zip hoodie to tide you over. And as I was just telling my daughter as she plans for a fall trip to Italy - if she doesn't pack enough warm clothing, they sell clothes in Italy that are just normal-person garments. It isn't all Gucci.
