Slightly cooler but sure to get hot later. Mainly because I’m going to need to work in the attic. National forecast has us in the clear so that sun will heat everything up. It stayed cool in the shade yesterday but it was moist and hot in the sunlight, even with a light overcast.
I did one pickup, mostly home goods, but included 2 kindle paperwhites. D1 cracked her screen a while ago. I made her pay half for the replacement kindle. I think I spent $30 each so it wasn’t a hardship, but bad decisions shouldn’t be rewarded. Got a UV flashlight too. Should come in handy. It was $3, so I expect it to be less than pro level.
Went by the bins since I was in that part of town, didn’t find much of interest. Some days it’s like that. Nice pair of like new Vans, if they fit D2 and she likes them, that will have made the stop worth while. Spent some time at my storage unit going through stuff and sorting for the eventual auction. That’s where the late afternoon sun was beating down on me, even through the overcast. Came home soaked in sweat.
Dinner was boxed Beef Stroganoff, one of the cheesy hamburger helper style meals. Beef was in the freezer for over a year, in a vac bag. Box meal was on the shelf for a year past its best by. Milk was UHT shelf stable opened last week. All was good. No leftovers.(and I use 1 1/3 pounds of meat, instead of just a pound.) Eat what you store, store what you eat.
Did some searching through surveillance video. Fish is there at dusk on Saturday but never seen again. That night a big tabby cat does come sniffing around, but walks off. The rain started soon after that, and went on for 12 hours, so I don’t have great video, and I can’t see any time when the pond was disturbed at all. Can’t figure out what got Mr Fish, but he’s gone daddy gone and has been for a week. That’s kinda the worst part, that we didn’t notice for a few days and didn’t investigate for a few more (we feed him daily.) I just figured he was hiding in the deep end. So much for my situational awareness.
Today I’m headed to my client’s house to do the rest of the install. The NVR came in, and I can get the rest of what I need on my way. That’ll be later in the morning though. I should still be able to waste time on the internet with my friends. You know, get the day started right.
And then I should be able to invoice and stack up the result. ‘Cuz sometimes the best stacks are greenbacks.
