Saturday - Puttering away at this and that.
Got a text from S, she says Facebook and Twitter suddenly appeared on her phone. Weird.
Did I say soon for the successor to Princess Valerie's War? Apparently it was written in 2011, and the author apparently has a reputation for just stopping in the middle of things.
Friday - Warm and windy.
Pretty tired, didn't do much.
Mr. Turtle is enjoying the heater, I found him draped over it again this morning, like a human with a "pool noodle". On the other hand he is completely disinterested in grapes and strawberries, which my brother's turtle enjoys. I need to fish them out of the tank now.
Book #21 was Princess Valerie's War (Tanith Series #2), by Terry Mancour.
There is supposedly a third book in the series coming out soon.
Thursday - Pleasant, not too windy.
Glen came by and we worked in the yard for about six hours, weeding, filling in holes, and running the metal detector down the path to the back. I found a few more nails and screws, and numerous chunks of torched off metal and bits of wire solder.
In the afternoon I worked on some STARS stuff, though it got warm in the west office by 5:00, even with the a/c on.
Wednesday - Hot and windy.
Working on bills, and some STARS stuff. My old guides are a bit out of date, FreeCad is a moving target.
I'd noticed that the turtle was a bit listless. His water is a bit cold, so I plugged the heater back in.
Tuesday - Warm and a little windy.
Glen came by and did more weeding, finishing the side yard and back yard, starting on the waist high stuff around the containers. I really don't want to get a bill or notice from the fire department - this is the highest the weeds have been that I've seen in three springs.
While laying down the extremely heavy solar water panels I managed to crush my ankle pretty good. It hurt like the dickens, and I have an good bruise raised up. Bah. Had I been wearing boots it wouldn't have happened.
Talked to Dr. G for a bit, he sounds in good spirits. We went over some FreeCad-Stars items and I'm going to refresh the old detailed write ups I did a year or two ago.
Monday - Windy.
I've been looking for the long sheathing panels to finish the garden windbreak. I went into Lowe's yesterday and they had only 8' lengths, and that's all Home Depot has listed as well. They mention 9' lengths but state that it isn't in stock and can't be delivered to the store. WTH?
When I get a chance I'll call around to some of the more industrial lumberyards locally.
Glen came by and we worked in the yard all morning, had lunch, then a bit more.
Sunday - Warm again.
I went shopping in the morning for groceries, with S, stocked up on soda's in particular since I have help coming over this week to help with yard work.
I didn't see any products out of stock, not toilet paper or napkins, not meats. I admit I didn't look at the disinfectant aisle.
After that I made a quick trip down to Ventura to check on the boat, things seemed fine. The weather was gorgeous.
The beaches were almost empty: you can walk on them, you can walk along them, you can surf and swim, but you can't sit down and they've closed off all the beach parking...
Trying to take it easy to keep my hands and joints from giving out. Skating along that line.
