It’s too damn hot! It’s the middle of October!
I took care of a friend’s house yesterday. She lives east of the city where it tends to get really hot. I snapped this photo as I was about to step out of my car to take in mail and water plants. It was 4:45 in the afternoon.
Thank goodness she has a pool. While the plants were being sprinkled and sprayed, I took off my shoes and dangled my feet in the water. It helped a bit. Until I had to leave.
Six weeks ago, it was 36 degrees in the mountains near Yosemite. What the hell?
I could get into this for a day or two. Like….tomorrow?
I know. Soon I will be griping that I have to wear slippers and a robe. I just seems like I am never happy with anything.
The Rough Fire that started July 31st in Kings Canyon National Park is still burning. It’s 95% contained, but it is still burning. Amazing. Only heavy rains or snow will finish the job now. Fire scares the living shit out of me. I am so glad they took every precaution to keep us safe while we drove around through the Sierras.
I have to go to a special luncheon in the park today. They have them twice a year and ALWAYS serve the identical meal each time. Been this way for almost 11 years now. Dangerspouse would be appalled. I doubt it they will change it up today. Maybe sourdough rolls instead of French this time? A girl can always hope.
Off to the salt mines.
