Where I'm staying the house owner's been in the hospital, so I've ended up with a few unexpected responsibilities like front n back garden watering n some animal care. Still haven't made the beach yet. The tide is too early for me this week- tho I may yet find ambition to make a bike ride down there to toe dip this week. Haven't been taking many pics that have come out well either.
I should just give up doing extra things until my planned days off in a couple weeks, n would if we weren't so roasting hot here again this week. The humidity has been up there, n of course I'm getting lots of exercise n sweating.
No ac at home, n the one window with the door shut just is killing me, never mind cooking tea water or food- watermellon, ice cream, n cold sandwiches will do for now. I finally started using the ice-box ice cubes in my Kool-Aid tonight. Finally got over-heated in here doing dryer laundry. Much more convenient n faster than having no machine, but some of my ancient clothes are shredding.
What's messing me up is most of the stock has been moved to the yet to open location, n I can't get things I would have by now- like a new lunch bag n backpack. The old ones are all ripping to shreds in the meantime... Patching away with a sewing needle lately.
Also I'm not looking forward to walking miles in the new store to find the same things I was getting there before like tea bags n eyedrops.
As I age, all this "new progress" stuff seems to always mean "figure out new ways to get everyday things done again," without any extra time for learning fitted into your schedule.
Pic is the interesting above ground roots of an Oak tree outside the library, turned purple. (It was very grey).
Still trying to fit Library trip plus other things into the same Day Off n keep running out of time for other things. This week I'll be skipping sleep Saturday to fit in a Sister visit, n hope to recover quickly while not missing a day of work. I've been so overtired- n waking up with allergy head-aches. The Ragweed is crazy out there now, n I'm weeding it, plus getting a blast of new chemicals (soap) around the new place too.
What a different summer I'm having this year...
Hope your's is going better!
