Was looking through our pictures of our trips around and Iâ€™ve figured out the reason (or one of the reasons) I hang around the house so much. Going places and doing things is so much better when I have my Lovely-Young-Bride (of almost 30 years) with me.
Donâ€™t get me wrong; I will, and do, go places without her. And I can have a good time when I do. But I sure do enjoy taking her along and holding her hand when we see new things. Old things. Things.
So I hang around the house a lot. Sure, I get â€œprojectsâ€ (and chores) done, and even occasionally go for a â€œday trip,â€ but I mostly save going anywhere we havenâ€™t been for when she can go with me. Those places are just more fun with her along.
Anywho, supposed to get up in the high 90â€™s today. Except for the fire hazard (I do live next to a forest!) Iâ€™m enjoying the Hell out of this Wx. A friend is coming over before noon to pick up these router boxes, and I have to be at the Naval Hospital after 1300 to pick up my meds, but, otherwise, Iâ€™m going to be outside, in my wading pool, all day. Hopefully.
Made a run to WinCo Foods in Bremerton. Almost stopped at the Bremerton Airport for the Fly-In, but the parking lot was packed with people looking for a place to park. And on a Friday! Think Iâ€™ll get up early tomorrow (which I do every morning anyway) and head over to it and just sit until it opens. At least Iâ€™d get a decent parking space.
Also stopped and got my Meds. I was the only one â€œin lineâ€ so I got through pretty quickly.
Itâ€™s HOT today. Deck thermometer reads 102 right now. (Remember: Thatâ€™s, like, 190 degrees anywhere else.) Took the Dog for a mosey around the back 40. About to go step into that wading pool!
Also watered the front-front and back yards since itâ€™s so dry around here. Burn bans in effect in this whole Puget Sound area. Hopefully, this year will be like our previous 7-8 years and we wonâ€™t get a fire in the forest behind us. (And I wouldnâ€™t mind seeing that 3-4 ft of snow (this next Winter) the locals claim we got the winter before we moved in. Course, it wouldnâ€™t matter to me cause I donâ€™t have to go anywhere. But SWMBO does.)
Got to pick her up at QFC again tonight. Tried to keep the AC on for her. Got a bit too cold for me. (But Iâ€™m a warm Wx person.)
And thatâ€™s it.
