Saturday - Getting ready to head out to the
coast. Probably not much posting for a week or so...
Friday - Hot. But it cooled
off (relatively cool) rather quickly, down to 90F by 7pm, which is quicker
than usual. Humidity has been in the single digits, which is nice.
Went to the library, dropped off almost-due books, picked up some new ones,
before the trip to the coast.
25 June 2015
Still not 100%. I work a bit, rest, work a bit, rest.
Wednesday 24 June
Wednesday - Hot. Working on this and that.
Getting ready for the coast.
Tuesday - Hot.
Did yard chores and a bit of app stuff.
I also took a very long walk, 7+ miles, that wiped me out. Probably not a
good idea when not feeling well...
Monday - Hot. Summer is here.
I woke up feeling...bad. And worse as the morning went on. I called and
asked, but no-one else had food poisoning, it was just me. Fever, chills,
tiredness. I finally went back to bed and awoke in the late afternoon
feeling much better.
So not much got done.
I watched some TV in the evening. First it was Transformers:
Age of Extinction. Kind of boring. I started fast-forwarding through
huge chunks, and watched the whole thing in less than an hour.
More entertaining was "American
Warships". This was a 2 star (deservedly) rip-off of "Battleship" and
was of the genre "so bad that it was good".
Oh IMDB, you know your audience:
Sunday - The first day of summer, Father's Day
- and another very hot day.
I made some more repairs to the backyard sprinkler system, and things are
probably a bit better. But it's looking a bit seared back there. Once I've
the Xeriscaping approval/disapproval I can turn off about 10-15 sprinkler
heads, and give the rest of the plants all the water they need.
I did a few other small things as well, trying to get it to look a little
less hillbilly back there. Ran odor remover through the swamp cooler for an
hour, put up the back yard hose holder, some more tomato plant supports. I
bought some threaded rod and cap nuts to fasten the gutter back onto the
front of the house, since I couldn't find any inexpensive 8" bolts (you can
buy them for car heads for about $7 each).
The peaches are falling off the tree with ripeness, I noted. And half the
Marigold's have died.
Sheryl took Roger and I out to Miso Sushi for father's day. I'm no father,
as far as I know, but have tried to be a decent honorary uncle to their
kids, and they appreciate that.
