chilly but only a bit

I ate Oatfit instant oatmeal for breakfast. I sorted out how to use the "fill" command better in Logo. I tried to watch a legal seminar, but it was not properly in my "seminar lobby".

The weather turned a bit cool this morning. I wore my red fleece to work. I did not need my fleece outdoors. I needed it in my office, which gets cool in these "not-really-cool but kinda-temperate" weather.

I bought a magazine at Barnes & Noble and ate a TKY sandwich and baked chips for lunch. I walked in Travis Farm Park. At our office, a nice high school senior spent a day shadowing two of our attorneys. She seemed very bright and very capable.

After work, I walked in Heritage Park in Sachse. Lots of folks were setting up a Fall festival at the school next door. I still had this simple, open-field park largely to myself. I saw a lot of Eastern Meadowlarks--my first sighting this Fall of that species. I also saw the resident Loggerhead Shrike, several migrating Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher,and a quick view of an aerial raptor that might have been a Sharp-Shinned Hawk, an American Kestrel or a Merlin, but I lean toward the kestrel choice.

We went to Rockfish Grill for dinner. I had grilled jumbo shrimp, red beans and rice, and apple cider slaw, as well as a bit of my wife's lightly blackened mahi mahi. The service was not fast, and yet it was very good.
I drove us home, as I almost never drink alcohol but my wife had a glass of pinot grigio.

Tomorrow would be the right day to go to one of our area's truly wildlife-filled reserves like Hagerman NWR. But my hankering is to go to a quiet, tree-lined park instead. We'll see.
