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 youâ€™re my neighbor.
Itâ€™s Saturday morning. Iâ€™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 sheâ€™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 didnâ€™t mention because, for some reason, I didnâ€™t post last night.)
So, a couple of weeks ago I bought this â€œEleafâ€ 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 donâ€™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 Loweâ€™s in Port Orchard where we spent some hard earned money on things we â€œneed.â€ Which means we got the deck stain protectant stuff we needed plus. But we canâ€™t walk into Loweâ€™s, Home Depot, or ACE Hardware without spending more then we planned. Thereâ€™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. Iâ€™m experimenting with freezing some of the cherry tomatoâ€™s cause we just arenâ€™t eating them fast enough. So Iâ€™ve frozen about 40 of the things and weâ€™ll see how they are when defrosted. Cross your fingers!
And thatâ€™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! Iâ€™m Outta Here!)
