It has really rained this summer, much more than in the ten years that we’ve lived here. Of course that means it’s been more humid too. I’m okay sitting under a fan, but cooking and cleaning up is hell.
We have storms coming in for Sunday though next Wednesday unless they change the forecast. At least the temperature is going down this time to the low eighties and upper seventies.
When we do turn the A/C on later in the evening, Raven goes crazy jumping for joy that it’s cooler. He’s been playing with Koki more, but only if Koki is in the mood. Raven’s always in the mood to play and have a good romp about the house.
Workers are still working on the pool area of the new house they’re building down the street. Installation of the rain gutter happened last Thurs. and just in time for a downpour that lasted ten minutes. We’re not sure where that came from, but the water was pouring out of the rain gutters and pounding on the patio, splashing up because it was hitting so hard. It even knocked the Dish out for a few minutes. That didn’t go over well because my husband was watching one of his political shows at the time.
My work in the garage is on hold until I get over my earache and it gets a bit cooler out there. Maybe all this muggy weather is just a trial for the next stage of life if we move south.
My neighbor’s back from
Wyoming, so I’m off cat and garden duty for
a few days. She has three more trips
planned before winter sets in here, although she hasn’t told me about them
yet. I saw her calendar while she was
gone. I guess she didn’t want to lay
that news on me right away.
I’m really getting in the mood to write so maybe somehow I can find time to get back to the edits on my mystery book.
