Labor Day The Close Of Summer?

Actually just the end of fun for some. The kids here have been back in school for some time already. Never could understand them going back in such heat. But other places school starts this coming week or the week after. Most  pools close .

This morning we decided to do breakfast at Tracy's house so we could all sit down together at the table since my truck only holds 2 people. I picked up the stuff for a good Mexican breakfast made by Tracy. It sure was good.

After we ate we went to a couple of stores so Tracy could pick up laundry stuff. None of the stores were able to take cards or checks. Guess they all use the same system or something. So we pooled our money and she picked up what she needed.

We did manage to get the truck cleaned too. It was so dirty from the blowing dust and then all the rain that managed to get under the car port..

I headed home and it was still early but the crazy's were already on the road. Switching lanes and not even caring if there was enough room, Then switching back to the other lane. A car in front of me was driving on the side of the road and another fool got in the lane the first fool should have been in. I slowed way down to get far back enough of these two idiots. The car driving on the side of the road must have realized he wasn't in a lane and tried to get over again. I was so happy when I backed into my driveway I could have kissed the ground.

So it was time to close up the house and read which led to a nap. I woke up and read a little more and then felt another nap coming on.
Hey what else was there to do.

I finally ate lunch around 3:30 it was time to watch some TV since they are giving lots of free channels this weekend. Well there still wasn't much to watch. Settled on Wild Animals on Nat Geo. 

Tomorrow I will not leave my yard unless it's to go to visit someone right here in the Village.

Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day.

A Reading Day

I ran off to Walmart to pick up a few things to hold me over until Wed. 

I put things away and had some breakfast. Then Fred and I went on weed patrol and watered the plants in prep for another hot day.

Washed 2 loads of clothes and then read for the rest of the day with occasional outs with Fred. Best way to not have to turn the A/C up to high just don't move much.

A Nothing Day/ And Now You Can Start Your Labor Day Weekend

Another outstanding morning. It was 68 degrees and very low humidity. By 10 am had to close the windows and door to keep the cool air in for a little longer. By 10:40 it was time to turn on the fans and about 15 min. later the a/c but on low. 

I put a few more books on my kindle so I can do more reading. This way I get off the computer and not turn the TV on to watch nothing.

Tomorrow I will back the truck into the driveway and finish off the blue insulation. There isn't to much left to do.

As you may have noticed my post name yesterday was a little early. I keep loosing days for some reason. 

Once again be careful out there this weekend and have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day!

It was a nice morning as it has been for a while now. Fred and I wandered around the yard for awhile doing repeat weed patrol. Swept up the car port area and  hung a wind chime in that area.

Dusted the house and did some minor cleaning up. Then didn't do much else but read as the heat was on for the day.

Barb stopped by this evening to show me her black eye and stitches from her surgery to remove a cancer cell. This is the first time she had such a bad one. There is still one more just at her hair line. Hope that one isn't as bad.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.

I fell asleep in my chair so here I am now But......

Hot Again

Slept late this morning again but really late this time. I peeked at the clock with one eye and it was 6:15. Jumped up and hit the bathroom brushing teeth and trying to get dressed all the same time. It was a riot. I called for Fred and he came charging down the hall like a speeding bullet. I opened the door and he went flying out poor guy.

We didn't get the rain they said we would get so I watered the plants and walked around doing weed patrol. It was really muggy out again.

I was able to jump in the shower and get properly dressed.  Did some reading really enjoying this book. I'll fill you all in later.

And that's about all for today.

Guess I Had Good One

We were supposed to have an 80% chance of rain today or did they mean 80 drops?  The street never got wet. But the temps were just awesome. I sat out on the porch for about 3 1/2 hrs this afternoon reading and playing with Fred. 

It started to thunder around 1 pm far off in the distance and the sky was dark grey south of here. As the afternoon wore on the thunder was closer and the breeze was just great.  But as it got even closer Fred wasn't to happy. He doesn't really get all crazy or whiny but you can tell he isn't real happy. So I let him go in the house and I stayed reading out doors. It started to sprinkle but that was it. The thunder moved on so I let Fred back out and into the yard so he could take care of business.

I finally realized it was well after 5 and I was getting hungry so we can in. 

I would love to have more of these days but looks like we will be in triple digits again in a few days. 8~(

Will It Rain?

It sure was humid today and it looked like we were going to get a good storm.

I went to visit Barb for a little while this morning. I told her it was really nice until they pulled in last evening  and brought this nasty weather back.

Then did some lunch with a few ladies from the park. We hoped we wouldn't get rained on. Nope not a drop.

If someone gives you gift cards always check the expiration dates. I know some one who lost 2 $25. ones this month. I really can't see how that can be legal, after all someone paid the money for those things and now it was like throwing the money out the window.

Still waiting for the rain.
