Today is the last day of July, can you believe we are ready to start the 8th month of this year already? School starts for many in 2 weeks. Seems like it's been a really short summer, but probably because we had rain for most of June and high humidity and heat for July, so have been stuck inside a lot. Now with all the West Nile Virus carrying mosquitoes being trapped & sprayed for, you can't even enjoy going out after the sun goes down (not that the lower 90's and upper 80's at night is cool, but the sun is not beating on you)! Today we have a cold front pushing through....yippee....dropping from the 104 (heat index of 107) yesterday to only 98 today....but the main thing it will be pushing the humidity out...so it will still be hot, but not as unbearable. Our electricity regulator board put out a request yesterday by text messages to conserve the use of electricity between 3-7 pm so they would have enough to not have to do rolling brown outs...so, I closed all my drapes and blinds, upped the AC to 78 (from 75) and shut off everything extraneous (computer-lights-ceiling fans-chargers-lights, etc) and stayed in my cool bedroom with only the TV going...I did my part! LMBO!!
My nephew, Lamar, had to have an emergency cholescystectomy on Wednesday, all went okay and he was released to go home last evening...the doctor told Penny half of the gallbladder was green or already dead so it had to come out and he was hit with massive antibiotics.
Other than doing regular house chores and taking care of my fur and feathered friends...life has been a little dull but oh so enjoyable around here. I did get to reorganize some of my scrapping files and clean my computer hard drive and catch up on some books as well as binge watching some things on Netflix. In other words, just being really lazy and enjoying the heck out of it....ROFL!!
Well, off here to make sure all the trash and recycle bins are out for collection...all the wash is caught up, so I need to clean 2 bathrooms and sweep, vacuum and mop and will be finished with the house chores...maybe an hour or 2, then I can settle in for another series to binge on. Y'all have a marvelous weekend ahead, make lots and lots of memories to share! Chat more with you next time. Hugs, Mat
