Yesterday ended up being a lazy day. I didn’t make the bed or even get showered and dressed. I had things to do, but nothing that couldn’t wait a day. It was cloudy and dreary and hot. We did get some rain for about 20 minutes, real rain. There were still puddles when I walked this morning. The sky is clearer this morning and the humidity is supposed to drop for a day or two. I haven’t run the extra fan in the living room for a couple of days. I don’t like it, but the electric bill is too high already. I will eventually get used to it. I was very warm when I went to bed last night, had a hard time cooling down and going to sleep. I can’t sleep when I am all sweaty. I thought about jumping in the shower, but I can’t sleep with wet hair either. I finally figured out that I hadn’t turned on the ceiling fan when I turned on the other fan, that made the difference.
I read a book, and later in the day, after my nap, I got ambitious and started on the lower cupboards with the baskets. I need two more baskets to complete the project. I can easily put three baskets on a shelf, so I did all three on the lower shelf and will do two more on the upper shelf today after I go buy them. I also cleaned the strawberries I bought the other day. Today I will cut my watermelon so I can get rid of the rind with the garbage.
Got a phone call from the lady I had spoken to on Tuesday about Ody. They are coming down from Kingman to look at her today. They are supposed to be here around noon. I will go get her and bring her over to the empty lot next door where there are people around. That way I will also know that she will start. Before that I need to go to the post office and DG to get my two baskets. If I can get Ody sold, I can get at least another year out of it. And maybe the other part time position will come thru to stretch that out. I would have to be frugal, but it beats working. And who knows what could happen in that year. Look at all the changes I have been thru in the last year.
The full moon was still up when I got back from my walk this morning so I got a picture of it over my place. :)
I can’t seem to stay ahead of the leaves that blow onto the patio. They aren’t from any tree on my lot, I only have the grapefruit tree. They blow in from all over the neighborhood. It is very frustrating. I ended up buying a broom just to keep on the patio. I picked up a sweeper nozzle for the hose when I was at Walmart last week. I may try that this morning and see if it is easier than sweeping. I guess I am going to have to get a blower because the yard gets them too and it looks crappy.
It seems to be a little less humid this morning. Nice breeze at the moment. But the sun is up and it will be hot very soon. I don’t have much else to write about. Tomorrow I will make the italian salad for Saturday’s pot luck, and tomorrow night I am going over to Keith’s to watch the fireworks from his yard. Thinking I will take the scooter. It will be the first time I have driven it after dark. Will be interesting to see how good the headlight is.
