Cooler and wet. Supposed to be in a thunderstorm area today and tomorrow. We’ll see.
I got almost all the tree trimming done that I wanted to. There’s still a lot of small and medium sized dead stuff in the oak, but I shortened and lightened the main branches, especially the ones over the house. I usually do that before hurricane season, so with the cooler weather, and a pile of debris waiting for heavy trash pickup, it was a good time to do it. I will say that my pecs are sore from yesterday’s sawing…
Then it was time to cook dinner for the birthday girl. She wanted “a 5 course meal” starting with grilled skewered chicken hearts, soup, grilled pork ribs, chocolate dipped strawberries and marshmallows, and finally birthday cake. So that’s what we did. Pulled from the freezer, cans, shelves (cake mix), and fresh strawberries. Wife made the cake, I decorated it. We all ate it! A good time was had by most, as older sister was a tiny bit frustrated about not getting enough attention. Boo hoo. Her birthday is next month.
Amazon says my hard drive will be here in a day or so. The slippers I ordered on the same ticket will be delayed. HD = critical and priority, slippers = no need to ship so soon. Except that I need to wear shoes, all the time. If I walk around the house barefoot, I get foot, leg, knee, and back pain. The Dr Scholls have a thick sole that conforms and supports my foot. Good thing I ordered early and my current ones have a little life left. Maybe I should order an extra pair.
Yesterday felt like a continuation of the weekend. Today feels like work.
And so I better get something done.
Stay in, stay safe.
