Happy Wednesday, everyone :hello:

Today I hope to get some writing done. I may start finally binge-watching the final season of Game of Thrones.. Yesterday I mowed the lawn and got drenched by the oppressive humidity. :no:

Hope y'all have a great day :yes:

Good morning!

The doctor's first day back went relatively well. He is sick. He behaves himself when he is sick. However, I do fear he has something going on with his heart, or his pituitary tumor. His pallor is bad, and he looks older and more tired. Every time he travels abroad, he comes home feeling like this, and it keeps getting worse with each trip. scottydog, is right....we need to travel and do things, before it becomes to hard to do. This is why I am trying to move sooner, rather than later. I don't want to relocate, and not be able to enjoy it. I'm working on a plan to spend 2-4 weeks in Florida this winter. It all depends on how much money I can save between now and then. Also it depends on if I can get my work to let me go for more than 2 weeks without giving my job away.

The weather was finally pleasant, yesterday, so I went on my usual lunch time walk and an after dinner walk with Ron. I'm not sure I will get any walks in the next 2 days, due to the weather.

Good morning, all. :yawn:

Nothing really on tap for today. Did more work at the faire site yesterday. Found a leak and we reported it to various people... with no response so far. :unsure:

Yeah I haven't been getting any walking in here as it's been getting too hot too early lately.

Poor guy. Wasn't he going to have some surgery if he got worse? :(

I do agree. That's why I want to retire as soon as possible. I need more time for my writing and other projects. Just in case I get old and die. Not saying that I will, but just in case. :lol:

I'm glad you're making plans to spend more wintertime in Florida. That will be good for your mental health :yes:

The nice thing about this time of year is that where you live, there are 3 more hours of daylight -- from 6 to 9pm. You could go on an evening photo safari :camera:

Good morning!

I'm taking Addie on a paranormal investigation of the church, later this morning. :lol: This evening, I have a book club meeting. In the between the two is a load of laundry, and some cleaning.

We finally got Lisa into detox, yesterday. I'm hoping she decides to stay beyond the 7 days of detox for treatment.

Just water. Looks like it's the line that the number 2 guy uses when he parks his camper up there. It's reportedly been taken care of now.

You never know, her recovery might stick. Or she may decide to continue to self-destruct. Addiction is such an unpredictable disease. I'm rooting for her.

Good evening, everybody. :hello:

Today one of my co-workers asked me to switch an early shift for a late shift, and of course I agreed. I have a feeling this will happen frequently. :lol:

Theoretically, except for the weariness and all the stuff I do in the evenings. But I could go out in the morning before work. I just need to re-think the entire concept of time itself. :time:

I was kind of hoping for unidentified toxic waste that seeps into the groundwater causing giant freakish mutations to grow and wreak havoc across the countryside. But that's just me.

Maybe the mutations have an exotic freaky look not unlike a Renaissance Faire costume, and the alien life walks among the faire-goers unnoticed.

Happy Friday, all :hello:

Today we'll drive 2 hours west of here to hang out in the mountains of Virginia with The Wife's extended family. Her sister lives there in an un-air-conditioned house, so it better not be too hot. There are a few hiking trails, antique stores, and wineries to keep us busy this weekend.

Good morning!

Usually, Friday is a quiet day of catch-up work in our office, and the doctor stays home. Not today. :sob: I also usually get out at 4pm. Not today. :sob:

Addison wasn't impressed with the church basement. She said it wasn't night time, so it wasn't dark and creepy enough. :lol:

Addison is also getting that pre-teen girl attitude. There were times I felt like I was talking to her mother. *sigh*

I think my mother is coming to stay with us, tonight.

That sounds like a wonderful weekend, scottydog. Have a safe trip.

That's nice. :yes:
yes. no. agreed.
weather is changing between rain which is done with and sunny/cloudy warm again - though there is supposedly a hot spell coming up next week with maybe thunderstorms. Always nice to gas bag with L!
well...2 days with nothing on the agenda other than planting out pea/zuchini seedlings and doing some weeding down the plot!

Locked
