Captain’s Log 6,090
One more day of oppressive heat and we MIGHT regain some semblance of fall. Maybe. I don’t know what I was thinking on Saturday when I decided to trim up the plants in the garden. They looked goofy and I wanted to fix them. While wearing a black t-shirt. At least I had shorts on.
Gads! It was hot! I was worn out in a matter of minutes.
Fiercely unpleasant time – but the geraniums look great now
I think doing that should be equivalent to hiking about 35 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Maybe 50. The black t-shirt added a few extra mileage points.
I would rather read Bill Bryson’s stories about this.
I have wandered a bit on the Pacific Crest Trail. I didn’t know I was even on the trail until I saw a marker. So I guess I can say (in all honesty) that I have hiked part of the trail. Ha!
My Kindle charger died. I dropped it on the tile floor and the bits inside rattled loose. So much for that. I ordered another one that will arrive in time for my trip to the Netherlands. This will be my third trip to Europe with that Kindle. It’s the only way to travel when you need to pack light. It fits in my small purse and keeps me entertained on the plane for eight hours. Who could ask for more? I know the new fancy Kindles have a battery that lasts more than a month. When I travel to Outer Mongolia, I will buy one of those.
It’s Columbus Day. I suppose all the federal offices are closed. They close for every damn holiday in the world.
