Hello and Welcome! Come on in out of the rain. I know, the house doesn’t feel any drier, does it? It is pretty humid and has been all week. At least it’s cooler. We had a couple of 90 degree days in there. And we’ve had a lot of rain. Wet, hot, sticky, yuck. But, hey, it will dry off tomorrow and get into the upper 90s by Monday. Don;’t you just love summer? And the funny thing is, I know i can’t complain because so many of you are having it much worse! And were is this paradise that is only in the 70s today? Some of you may recognize that mug and synthesizer at the top of the page as being in New Hampshire.
Yeah, work was busy this week. Next subject ;)
I have the “final” version of The Halley Branch in hand. I also took all three of my books over to the library in town and donated them. They will be placed in the “new arrivals” section for a while before moving to the “Local Authors” section.
I had been planning a run to Home Depot for a while and made it on Wednesday. Short version of the story is that years ago I decided to get a cordless electric mower. I have a ton of reasons, which I may write about later. The mower was great, if a little cheap. It is beginning to wear out. The last time I used it, it made an awful noise as the blade spun up and slowed down, but it didn’t make it as it was running. Time for a new mower. SO, with some research and all, I discovered that the current best cordless electric mower is from Home Depot. I also needed a hose, since I had to cut the end off of mine to make it usable… And then, right before I left, I made a discovery.
If you can’t see the photo, it is of a bald-faced hornets nest. It is on the side of my house. Bald-faced hornets, actually a type of yellow jacket and closer to a wasp than a hornet, are super aggressive. When Fiyero was a puppy he was stung many times by hornets before I discovered the nest. I didn’t want him to go through it again, so I got some spray while I was at Home Depot. I’m sorry. I don’t like to kill things. But sometimes you have to.
I’ve been doing a lot of editing of short stories. Not fun, but something that must be done.
Listen to it out there! I just pulled up the radar. We are right at the edge of the dark red. It’s going to get worse before it gets better…
I don’t take many selfies, but decided to do one this week just to prove that I am a real person ;)
That’s about it for now. Thanks for stopping by! I know it was all about me, but if you have a coffee share i will try to stop by and we can make it all about you :) Have a great week!
he original Coffee Share kind of died out, but it has been revived! Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in! Hopefully we can bring it back to its former glory!
Just as I was about to post this, I guess we are in the dark, dark red part of the radar display now… Man, it’s like hammers on the roof!
