 Well, at least it isn’t raining. It’s Shabbat and the high will be 63. That’s only a few degrees warmer than the low.It may sound as if I am complaining, I’m not. I knew that it would be cooler than in Venice, but I wasn’t thinking about eating outdoors for Shabbat dinner.  No matter, we persevere.  I bought some warm socks. I didn’t know that socks were so expensive. $20 bucks for a pair of warm socks. They better be warm.You know that line in the Graduate with Dustin Hoffman, and he is told the key to success is plastics. Well here the key to successfully stay warm is layering. The mornings are cold ,mid day very warm, then cool to cold . I have a light weight sweater for Dixie. But she may need a heavier one as we get to September. she actually likes her sweater. I am wondering if her previous owners dressed her in girly doggie things.Today was a  milestone for her. When I went to pick up my groceries,leaving her home, she was quiet the whole time. I think that she is realizing that I will be back.
