Nothing Exciting

We had been having some cooler temps but it didn't last long. Back up to high 90's but at least the humidity is gone. 

I managed to dig out some old paint from the shed and get them open so I can dry out the paint and get rid of the cans. Someone told me to put kitty litter in the cans. I'll check it out tomorrow. Hope it worked so I can get them out for the trash. Get this clean out under way.

Didn't sleep well last night had terrible heart burn. So I got up and ate some crackers and lots of water. I'm pretty sure I know what caused it and I will not let it happen again. 

Did  breakfast with Tracy this morning and she didn't sleep well either. So we drove up to A Mountain and of course I didn't bring the camera. Next week we will go back with the camera.

We made an early day of it and I came home and slept a few times during the day.

Good Night All


  1. I have never heard of the kitty litter idea but have taken the lid off and let it dry in the sun. In the evening I set the lid on the can and sat it on the patio. Anyway it worked for me.

  2. Hi Jane,
    I figured that is next just sit it out in the sun. At any rate it needs to go.

  3. In our municipality we can drop-off old paints at a collection station so it doesn't go in the landfill. If you as a citizen of the area are in need of a small amount of paint you can also get some paint at that same collection station.
    We've been having troubles sleeping lately as well. We found that by setting an alarm to wake up each morning at the same time (or if need be earlier) and by not taking any naps throughout the day we have retrained our bodies when to sleep.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. I have been getting heartburn during the night lately but it is due to what I snack on in the evenings. A tsp of apple cider vinegar in 3 or 4 oz of water takes it away almost immediately. I find I need less water with the organic ACV than with the Heinz variety, but add enough water so that it is easy to drink.

  5. Hi Jo, it's hot here, too. The kitty litter does work--our garbage people will not take it any other way unless the cans are empty and dry. Hope your heart burn is better.

  6. Hi Rick N Kathy,

    I found out where the place is to drop off the paint so the rest will go there. Trying to dry this out and then empty the cans is a pain in the neck.

    I slept really well last night and stayed busy all day.

    Hi Gypsy,

    I totaly forgot about the apple cider vinegar. but has gone away completely. I do think it was a snack that night.

    Hi Nancy,

    I hope it cools down soon this is crazy and I am so done with this heat. So tempted to throw the cot in the truck and head for the mountains. The kitty litter did a great job. But the rest are going to the recyle want this job done so I can move on.

  7. Ouch on the stomach issues. I find TUMS are my friends.

  8. Hi Phyllis,

    I stopped taking that medication and am being very careful of my evening snacks. Seems to have worked just fine. Thank you
