This morning I got up at my regular time after a good night's sleep. I fed and watered the animals and then took Slinky for a short walk. It's 82 degrees out there at 7:00 in the morning. It's supposed to get up to 111 today. I am so ready for fall.
At 10:00 or thereabouts I will go see Phyllis and hopefully Gerry too. It's been several weeks since I've seen Gerry. I have been sending her the congregation's newsletter so she can feel somewhat in touch with the rest of us.
This afternoon I will have top let Slinky into the kitchen again. 111 degrees is just too hot to expect him to stay outdoors. I guess I will read and take the laptop into the dining area. I will need to job search again after work tomorrow. I only have one application out this pay period.
I am happy to hear that congress is now being more reasonable about the budget crisis. Perhaps no one wanted to find out just how bad it would be to allow that crisis to actually happen. As it was, the markets were very unsteady about the entire mess.
Well I went out earlier and trimmed. I worked about 45 minutes. It really needed it. It is 90 degrees now at 9:30 and I am soaked again. It doesn't take much activity to do that in this weather..
It's 3:30 in the afternoon now and 110 here. Slinky really wants to be outside but can only stay out for ten minutes or so.
