Write about: the meteor shower.
Happy to say everybody came to pick up their local orders this afternoon - even if two customers arrived late. But late will always be better than not at all in this case - I was especially relieved when the lady who had ordered forty pounds of fruit (twenty pounds of peaches and twenty pounds of nectarines) showed up, as I was not keen on putting them away and then having to get them back out again for whenever we would arrange for her to come by.
Had a bit of wind last night and some rain early this morning and... suddenly we can see clouds and blue sky again. It's honestly pretty amazing.
Hopefully the smoke stays away for good.
Max wanted to stay up late tonight to watch the Perseid meteor shower - he was even willing to have a nap this afternoon in order to do so. He napped for almost two hours and was ready to go.
We had clear skies, which was nice. Lots of stars and satellites... but not a whole lot of meteors, unfortunately. But that was okay, because Max was just excited to be up late and watching the night sky.
Plus we had many entertaining exchanges. I can't remember all of them, but by far my favorite was this one:
Max: Where are all the meteors?
Me: I'm not sure. We just have to keep watching for them.
Max: Let's make music and sing for them so that the meteors will come down and dance on our table.
I'm not entirely convinced he fully understands what a meteor is.. but I'm good with that for now.
