That Iâ€™ve stayed kinda busy outside until late and just didnâ€™t feel like posting. My Goodness, Itâ€™s been great outside! Hot. Sunny. (Naked.) And I have a butt-ton of things to do out there what with gardening, mowing, walking, or just enjoying the weather. I Love Summer! I Love Summer way more than I Hate Winter. I think it got up to 95 here yesterday. Cool! (102 on my thermometer.)
I do miss going to â€œThe Beachâ€ though. (Blackâ€™s Beach in La Jolla.) Not that I could make it back up those cliffs now. Well, I probably could; but it would take a couple of hours cause I got so damned Old and out of shape. (Rounds a shape!) Plus, I havenâ€™t been there since we moved up here in â€˜93. Ah, well. Old Guy Dreams.
Not a whole lot going on around here. Went to the NMARES monthly meeting last night. Made a couple of runs to ACE the past couple of days. Worked on our closet putting a new wall in to support the new linen closet I inset into the wall. The usual chores. Picking blackberries.
Took the Dog for a walk around the back 40. Wish he was big enough to clear the spider webs from the path before I walk through them! Ugh! Heâ€™s starting to slow down on our walks, and being a bit more clumsey in the house, but I figure a 11-12 year old Dog is allowed to do these things. For not really being an animal person, Iâ€™m sure gonna miss him when he moves on.
Stopped at Taco Bell last night on the way to the NMARES meeting and had a taco salad (without rice!). Since I get to pick SWMBO up at the QFC @ 1915 tonight (itâ€™s Friday), I just may stop by Taco Bell again. Taco salad still sounds good, but maybe tacoâ€™s sound better. Weâ€™ll see.
Just not a whole hell of a lot going on around here today. Kind of a lazy day. Been for 3 walks around the property already and may do a couple more before time to leave. But, right now, a tall, cold, glass of iced tea sounds good. (Itâ€™s the Southern in me.)
And it hasnâ€™t rained in a few days so itâ€™s time to water the front-upper yard. Neighbors get kind of upset when I do it sans pants, so guess Iâ€™ll put my shorts on. Itâ€™s the only yard we water during the summer; and then only because of the fruit trees and blue berry bushes.
And thatâ€™s it. My Lovely-Young-Bride of almost 30 years is home safe and sound and getting settled for the evening. Iâ€™m gonna go read a bit.
