One of the many, many things I love about fall is the slate of brand new television shows it brings with it. That particular phenomenon is about to unfold and I find myself in a bit of a whirl about it. I absolutely can’t wait for a couple of shows to return and I am really excited to see how a couple of new ones turn out.
Tomorrow will be a big day in Scotland. After 307 years joined with England as the United Kingdom, the Scots will vote to choose if they want to declare their independence.
Mistakes happen. It’s a fact of life. Sometimes they’re little mistakes: The chicken cooked too long and now it’s dry. Sometimes they’re huge mistakes that make us want to crawl back under the covers and stay there until a week or two has passed.

My father has mentioned tools to me. I know what a hammer looks like and how it’s used. I’m pretty familiar with screw drivers and know screws are preferable to nails in most cases. I’m not too skilled with an electric screwdriver but I know how to use it. He talked to me about unclogging a sink. I wonder what new handyman advice I can pull from him.
I am obsessed, once again, with the 10-day weather forecast. It has been a while since it fascinated me so, but here we are again. The problem is I am waiting for the heat to break. Yes, I know, it took forever to get here this year and I am likely to have to wait awhile, but I can’t help it.
Some people think of spring as the time to clean everything and make changes. For me, I find the fall a better time to do such things, at least as good a time to do so.
I have a new car, and it has all the fancy gizmos inside — touch screen, navigation, hands-free phone, all of that stuff — but it does make me miss my old car, which had an on-board computer of its own.
