Skywise got the grass cut. I did laundry -- doing more tomorrow -- and we went out to dinner so I didn't heat the house up cooking.

Since we got back, I've been making a dent in my reading. In addition to research reading and the occasional EXCELLENT romance novel by Loretta Chase (the Queen of Romance Writers as far as I'm concerned) I'm reading Chill which is a reassessment of "climate change". It confirms what I already suspected -- that "global warming" is based on bad and/or incomplete science and and is being pushed by people with a political agenda. Fascinating reading.

Just popped into my FB newsfeed and replied to something posted on one of the Ghostbusters pages. I scrolled down and sure enough, the whiny man-babies are STILL bitching about the reboot. They must be so lacking in "life" that it is pathetic. Really, REALLY pathetic.

Morning.
Back from town. Everyone that could cut hay over the weekend and the whole area smells like fresh cut hay. Heavenly!

It's going to be another hot one today so the a/c is on and I won't be going outside much if at all. The last few summers have taught me that I tolerate "heat" even less well than I did forty years ago -- which is a bummer since I didn't tolerate it that well then! May the Gods bless whoever invented central air conditioning!

Heading out for the night. Skywise says there is lightning off in the distance which I don't doubt. "Pop-ups" are in the forecast for the entire week.

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Morning. It's another hot one with a chance/probability of thunderstorms.
Summer has arrived a little early.
Now to get caught up.

Well, the local/regional supermarket chain we've shopped at for over 30 years has been sold to subsidiaries of Kroger. I intended to go grocery shopping on Thursday but according to news reports, the company, Marsh, will cease to exist on that day so I don't know if it will even be open if we go. *sigh* Finding good quality meat, not to mention Faygo Redpop (a strawberry soda if you're unfamiliar with it) and Indiana State Fair porkburgers is going to be a trial.

Morning.
It's gonna be another hot one. We just got back from town -- had some shopping to do and had lunch -- and I'm now happily in the air conditioned house where I will probably stay unless I'm moved to go up to the Guest House. THAT will depend on my mood, my leg and how much "housewife type stuff" I have to do down here.

I did a little "manual" sweeping and now my left leg is "complaining" like hell and my right one isn't all that happy either. Time to get my glasses, some tea and get prone until the pain lets up. *sigh with cursing.....*

Walking hurts like hell.

About 35 minutes ago, I discovered that a large piece of tree has come down on the roof. Fortunately, it doesn't appear to have penetrated.

Skywise isn't home yet but I'm going to head out. It is thundering and we may be in for a third round of heavy rain which means I'll be knocked offline.
Hopefully nothing else will come down.

Everyone sleep well and be safe! Smiley Smiley

Afternoon.
It rained all night but fortunately the piece of tree that was on the roof was still attached to the tree so the roof wasn't in the least damaged. One for our side! Skywise is on the way to work and I'm getting organized.

Bad me! I've used too many megabytes today. I'll have to confine my research to books tonight I guess!

Back from banking and shopping. It's gonna be a hot one today -- no cloud cover -- so I'm expecting thunderstorms later. Hopefully somewhere other than here!

So far, no storms although the weatherdudes are predicting a "lively" Saturday so we're not out of the woods yet.

I've been conserving megabytes today. It seems like everyone on the internet believes that everyone else has cable internet with unlimited data plans and packs their sites with video, audio and advertisements accordingly. They load without notice and you can't turn the damned things off!  Smiley We're trying to upgrade our internet service but our provider's website is giving us attitude about it so Skywise is going to have to call them and talk to a "real person" who hopefully has English as their first language. [That might be asking too much but hope springs eternal.]

Sanctuary is the only place I can go that doesn't eat megabytes like candy.

I'm still trying to save megabytes so I'm going to head out and get away from the temptation of the internet.

Skywise is home and the thunderstorms should be here in an hour or less. Time to head out.

Afternoon. I've been up for a while doing laundry. Now I have to stop. The Queen is in my lap and neither of us want her to move.

We're back from a late lunch.
It's clouding up but it isn't supposed to rain this late in the day. Oh well, if it does, it does. It won't affect our plans any.

Afternoon.
We've been trying to book seats on an Eclipse tour but so far no luck. The site is NOT cooperating!  Smiley

We had some business in town and we got that taken care of and checked off the "To Do" list.

It's a quiet and peaceful night. No storms and it is cool enough that we don't need to have the a/c on. Yay for saving on the electric bill! Even the cats are quiet but they'll probably get cranky just as we're getting ready for bed!
It's a good thing we love the hairballs!
