Yep. Another SSDD Sunday in the makings. Did get to sit out on the front steps and eat my cereal in the warm sunshine. Nice. Today looks like the last nice day this week and it should get upwards of 80 degrees. We’ll see.
I just did not do much today except try to be outside. It’s probably the last day of nice weather around here until next summer. Looks like the probability of rain starting tomorrow night and going for a week. While we really need the rain, it sucks! I’d rather be outside, naked, in the heat and sun! Maybe I ought to move to Florida, but I’m only 62 and it’s not mandatory for another 3 years!
Spent some time talking with SWMBO about “things I’d change around the house” if I were in charge. Meaning, adding walls, removing walls, adding storage. Things like that. May have a couple of new ‘winter projects” around here. Cool!
Also talked a bit about the Thrive stuff; since we had chicken pot pies for dinner made from the ingredients she bought last time. It was good. Now we’re trying to figure out how to get started, what to buy, so we don’t have to try to just jump in and completely change over to Thrive without trying a bunch of different things beforehand. I need to know what it’ll replace from Safeway.
Tried playing with the camera tonight to see if I could set it to capture the Milky Way. Nope. It will pick up some of the brightest stars, and a lot of “artifacts.” I need to save up and buy myself a really good camera. And get one for my telescope. And win the lotto. (Soon!)
MCARC 2-meter Sunday Chat Net went well. Not many check-ins (probably because this is the last day of great weather) but interesting “gossip” none the less.
I Hate waking with a headache! This does not bode well for the coming Winter. Really, my headaches seem to be connected with weather changes; which happens damned daily around here this time of year. Hot-Cold-Dry-Rainy in the same day. I need to move to Arizona!
Not really doing much of anything since it’s such a nice day. Sunny & Hot. Just the way I like it. So I washed the dog. That was a trip. He really doesn’t like it. Especially when I take the hose to his stinky ass!
Also painted part of the deck. That was something I could do outside. Which is nice even though it’s painting the deck.
And it’s late and I’m going to bed.
Which I got to the requisite 15 minutes early but the Doc saw me a half hour late. Go figure. But they did another EKG; which appeared fairly normal. Cardiologist, Dr. Yang, (finally) checked me out and pretty much said I hadn’t anything to worry about as far as my heart is concerned. HOWEVER, my Blood Pressure was 180/110 so he upped my Lisinopril to 10mg daily (and may up it more), and something called Carvedilol (to even my heartbeat out somehow, I think) which I now have to take twice daily. Oh, the joys of getting old!
Not much else going on around here. Sun finally came out and it even got a bit warm out. Nice. Not too many of those days left this year. Did my usual chores and re-did 6 pints of chili that I didn’t get finished last night. Watered the garden and picked about 20 lbs of tomato’s. Have a pile to skin and boil down tomorrow.
Made myself some fried (in butter) fish and fresh peas for dinner. Was good. Next time I’ll need some tartar sauce and a hot bun.
And that’s pretty much it for tonight. SWMBO is home safe if not sound. Listening to 80-meters just to hear what I can hear. Lot’s or people there. About bed time.
