Well, I think itâ€™s begun:
Tuesday – Partly sunny, with a high near 73.
Wednesday – Rain likely before 11am, then showers likely after 11am. Cloudy, with a high near 67.
Thursday – Showers likely, mainly after 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 66. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Friday – A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 66.
Saturday – A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 69.
So, it may be getting time to keep a pair of long pants handy. Sucks.
Today was nice though. Somewhere between 75 and 80 degrees. Definite coolness to the air at 0930 when I went to check mail. Got hot this afternoon. A warm wind sprang up. That was really nice. Felt good. We took several walks around the back of the property. (Sometimes itâ€™d be nice to have a person along for the walks. Dog is okay, but he donâ€™t talk much. And he doesnâ€™t always stay with me.)
So I was trying to do things outside. Took my saw out and cut the shelf supports for the Caravan cabinet. Got the first 2 put in (have to use glue cause the â€œwoodâ€ is so thin). Gonna let it dry overnight and do the second 2 tomorrow. I figure even with using glue (a good wood glue) that the shelves should hold 5 or 10 lbs of the Thrive food. As long as we put bottles of liquid on the bottom it should work. Guess weâ€™ll find out next trip!
Checked into the Peninsula Amateur Radio Emergency Net (at least, I think thatâ€™s itâ€™s name) but was really scratchy to them. Then, on our local North Club (NMARES) net they didnâ€™t have any problem hearing me but I couldnâ€™t hear them worth beans. Time to get off my fat, old, ass and get my antenna moved! (And soon!) Then one of the new Hams was trying different frequencies to test out his new radio and antenna. Cool!
Other than that, not a whole lot going on. SWMBO stayed up way too late last night finishing a book (which I totally understand) so sheâ€™s probably going to lay down early. Think Iâ€™ll join her!
