Two months worth of rain fell in a few hours here, but at least this town is well set-up for water drainage. The dry stretch we had will help the ground soak alot up too. From drought to flood, with no inbetween. Now we're on Hurricane Roulette watch on the East coast. Around the town bays here I notice most boats are still in the water. It was almost 80F out there today for my walk still. I'm sure that won't last long as we turn the corner into October in New England.
Work threw it's after Summertime, "Tex Mex" BBQ last Saturday. So I started my workweek getting home around dawn the shift before, then not sleeping more than a couple hours n going back early to grab some food to save for after the next marathon workshift. They raffled off giftcards (I didn't get one), n we all got a free T-shirt along with our missed sleep. There were soccer balls n a football. As usual I took candid pics n still need to see how they came out. Card reader Finger-Twister time again.
I need to get all the old BBQ pics off the old machine in storage sometime. I want to print some n make posters on a color copier. More time that so often alludes my project list. I'm so good at the ideas n bad at getting it all done in a timely fashion when it's all I can do to get prepared to go back to work again. Of course, now is the first I've even had time to think since my work-week is finally over.
I had another bad tooth pulled on this Day Off, so I'm not speaking today. In preparation for not eating much during recovery throbbing, after work I'd made a bagel dough pizza covered with garden tomato sauce, Mozzarella, onions, n shredded Pepperoni. I can only have cold foods until tomorrow, so I have some bananas, garden cuke salad, jello, n pudding all ready for later if I get hungry. Shopping will be very light this week.
I got to steal several quick peeks at the Lunar Eclipse "Blood Moon" from the back door at work Sunday night. I'd never seen one like that. Glad I got away with it n didn't totally miss out.
Pics are from a beach excursion down the street from here. Close-ups of an upside-down baby Horseshoe crab (deceased), and a broken Whelk shell found by the water there.
