A new grandson

Yesterday morning at 9:57, Cole Phillip Marsh, was born weighing in at 7lb 9oz and 21 inches long. Jake’s sixth grandchild. All boys but one.

I really like this photo of Dylan, it reminds me so much of one of my favorite photos of Jake. They have the same look in their eyes. Jake would be so proud of Dylan, I know I am.

 I didn’t do a whole lot yesterday. The high temp for the day was 102 degrees. We were at 101 for most of the afternoon. It was OK. Hot, and you didn’t want to move around much, but nothing like 101 degrees in the northeast. The lower humidity makes a huge difference.

I put a thermometer in the bedroom, closed the door and blocked off the two inches under the door and the temp in there never went above 72 degrees. I have it set to 80 in the house. The AC doesn’t come on until mid afternoon as long as I close the place up shortly after the sun comes up. I spent the majority of the day out on the patio reading. Pretty much my plan for today.

Vicki, up the road, gave me an inflatable pool. She had two. I gladly accepted. I’m sure I will be using it soon. It is supposed to cool off to more seasonable temps this week, but we have another day or two of heat.

Kali Cat seems to be doing well. Other than very early in the week, we haven’t had any problems. I hope it continues. She has one more pill left and then has to go back to the vet. Hoping we get more pills, they seem to be helping a lot.
