Starting last week the Saturday schedule changed for the season. From now until Labor Day, all errands will be completed early in the day on Saturdays. No mid-day runs to the grocery store, or any other other place that means driving through the village, looking for a place to park, and navigate the check-out lines. My favorite sandwich shop is out of the question. From now on we shop early, or not at all. Because if it's after 10am, it can wait until Monday!
I will quickly adjust to getting to the grocery school before the whole staff has arrived. And to taking the morning walk before the garbage has been collected around town. It's called survival this time of the year.
I don't mind it, really, because I like the early morning. I love the dappled light coming through the trees, and the smell of the air before its full of exhaust. And the quiet....well that's just heavenly.
So the schedule changes, but not the joy of living here. Because it's magical in the morning.
