Supposed To Be A Nice Day

Well, looks like the last days of summer will be pretty nice.

At our house we always seem to be 5 degrees hotter than the Seattle high, and 5 degrees cooler than the Seattle low throughout the year. But what this means is the Dog and I can just about stay naked for the next week. Always a good thing. Unless you’re my neighbor.

It’s Saturday morning. I’ve already made my social commentary over on Redneck Mormon while SWMBO continues to sleep until the last possible moment before jumping up in a panic to get dressed and go to the Genealogy Library. Her Son took her car to visit his girlfriend (over there somewhere) so she’ll have to use the truck today. No biggie. Me and the Dog where going to pick black berries today anyway. And try to finish painting the deck railing. (Which I started yesterday but didn’t mention because, for some reason, I didn’t post last night.)

So, a couple of weeks ago I bought this “Eleaf” vape battery thingie. Cost $80. Got it cause the replacement battery will cost only about $17 instead of the $27 each for the batteries I have. Anyway, it works great. The only thing I don’t like about it  is that the voltage control surrounds the vape button so the voltage wheel moves every time you press the vape button. And it usually changes upwards. But, other than that, it works great.


SWMBO got home with the pizza. 450 degrees for 25 minutes and we were eating. It was good. Then she took me to Lowe’s in Port Orchard where we spent some hard earned money on things we “need.” Which means we got the deck stain protectant stuff we needed plus. But we can’t walk into Lowe’s, Home Depot, or ACE Hardware without spending more then we planned. There’s always something.

Got home after our usual stop at Safeway. Took SWMBO down to the garden where we picked some of the squash and one of the Brussels Sprouts stalks. I’m experimenting with freezing some of the cherry tomato’s cause we just aren’t eating them fast enough. So I’ve frozen about 40 of the things and we’ll see how they are when defrosted. Cross your fingers!


And that’s about it. The rest of the night will be waiting for the latest Doctor Who to be posted and getting that downloaded. (IT IS! I’m Outta Here!)

Nice And Hot Monday!

Day started at 0500 for us cause SWMBO is going to use the earlier Ferry this week to show her potential bosses she can get in at 0800. She is NOT a morning person!

We Should All Be At The Beach Today!

Been out gardening, weeding the front flowerbed. Just being outside. Nice. Made a run to the Post Office but otherwise just been hanging around here trying to do “stuff.” Mainly weeding the flowerbed but also moving rocks and dirt and putting the last two bricks in place along the border. Those last two bricks have been waiting to be put in place almost 4 years. Two bricks. Two. Four years.


My thermometer read over 100 degrees today. It’s in the shade. There is a Hot Wind blowing out there. If a fire were to start over here it would run wild. We’re dry. Very dry. Scary dry. Hope we have some rain with the possible thunder storms we’re supposed to have tonight. Right now rain would be a good thing. A bit anyway.

I Enjoyed This Movie. Was Looking Forward To The 2nd One.

Damn! Robin Williams died today. Damn! I remember him making me laugh an awful lot throughout my life. Too bad he couldn’t overcome his depression.  That’s a battle I know only too well.

Well, SWMBO’s Son is picking her up at the Ferry Landing so I don’t have to make the run into town. Have a couple of feelings about that. Damned strange not to ride and talk with her. But I didn’t have to make the trip into town.
