Tonight’s Sky


We had a less hot day. In the higher 90s. About 6PM winds and then thunderstorms. Now were back to wind. The temperature is just right!


I escaped coloring and left June undone.

Unfinished

My addition to the Escapist Coloring Club will span two months.

Since it started getting either busy and/or hot my Camp Nano has seen no progress. I’ll continue in July.

This then was my One-liner Wednesday, etc. post.

Tuesday


It is still too hot in the house. Yet it is PERFECT out here on the porch.

Do you see the mesquite pods getting long? And the mint beneath is giving me ideas for tea popsicles. I made green tea ones for tomorrow and Thursday.

Oh, and the sun is setting. I don’t know if you can see the gorgeous like I can. My eyes are still better than the cell lens. That’s something to be thankful for.

My baby toe got x-rayed today. I know it’s broken but the doctor wanted to see the pics anyway.

I got an email from the doc saying how proud she is of not only the weight loss but how all my numbers were so much better than last time. Yay! ME! Not anywhere near done with IF and Keto!

Okay, mosquitoes are biting. Time to go in.

Someone out there might need this.

Good News, Bad News


I’m back to What Day Is It Anyway.

I totally forgot it was Monday until 8:30. Shoot! I missed the writers group zoom, again!

The day started with my doctor appointment. Guess what? I lost 17 pounds now. Bad news? I had hoped for 20.

I have to go back tomorrow to get my toe x-rayed. It’s still discolored and hurting.

We got to 100. Ugh! Expecting 104 tomorrow. Then a downward trend hitting the high 90s the rest of the week.

Watched Alone on Netflix. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m9CiTagKvJo

Sorry that the URL is all you get. I haven’t figured out how to bring the YouTube to my blog page when on my phone.

I try to watch shows that have snow in them. It sort of helps. Alone is in the Arctic. That should do it!

While doing Duolingo, (oh! I just hit 700 days!) and writing this I had Day After Tomorrow playing on Amazon Prime.

Has anyone noticed the sound difference between the networks? For example, even with the volume on at 100% we can barely hear Netflix. While Amazon Prime I had to turn down to 60%.

Even between ABC and Animal Channel a big difference. Weird!

Time to toot the recorder and tickle the keys before bed

You all keep cool and safe!

Hot Sunday


I still don’t feel like turning on the laptop. It is still quite warm at nearly eleven. And we didn’t even hit the predicted 101. But too uncomfortably close.

In spite of that, the day was fun. Nottinghill, Holiday, and 50 First Dates, Big Hero 6, played on TV while the four of us and the furry children sat in front of fans and looked pathetic.

I managed to knit a heel on a sock. Wahoo something got done!

Sorry this is short and boring. But when I read back in the future it might be cold and busy and I’ll look at this time and gain inner warmth or be glad it still isn’t summer.

Now, even though it is late, I’m going to try and hit the musics then the shower and bed.


Up in the sky, way over there,

Those thoughts that fly

When I need them most

Are having a hey day!

Down in that valley, yes, right here,

We try to carry on,

Spiriting up

Getting things done

Having down to Earth fun.

A lack of sleep night had me scurrying for words when talking to family. But I had my ups and downs in the day getting lots of recorder things done, piano practice, even scales with fingers running up and down the keyboard.

A couple boxes got unboxed. The first signs of the heat showed up. Though in comparison with those west of here our temps were down, I don’t think we got to the predicted 95. Not looking forward to the triples due tomorrow through Wednesday. Too hot to be productive when there is no AC. Well, we have fans and a little window AC. But not the whole house kind.

Keep cool everyone!

chilling in a cooler

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is โ€œup/down.โ€ Use one, use them both, but try to put one in your first sentence. Bonus points if you use the other in your last sentence. Have fun!

Thanks for the fun prompt, Linda G. Hill!

Finished Friday!


My music/hobby studio is nearly complete. At least the piano is where it needs to be and most of the music books and things are situated. And knitting gear (because the knitting has no home yet) are in the place I want them to be. I even sat and practiced, actually played something over and over until I got it right, and then played some more. Yay! Me! The lighting is good. There is an overhead light and one for over the shoulder. The sound is good there and I feel better not being parked next to my son’s bedroom. I wish I were soundproof but whatever.

Oh, and the–whatever this piece of furniture is called– is now in the entryway of the living room. It will be cleaned out and filled with things like scarfs, gloves, hats and the like. The masks are on top.

Oh, those are portraits of my brothers and me as kids. And that was the flag I received for my vet dad when he passed I think that was a decade ago. I do miss him.

The basket next to the–whatever that piece of furniture is called–will be cleared out for boots and shoes, etc. To the left of that piece of furniture is a small hat tree. I want to make another longer one in the open wall to hang our coats.

My brother, son, husband and I worked very hard getting the furniture moved and in the new homes. Today started the going through the mountain of boxes we created while moving things around. We felt like we were playing Tetris sans the fun but irritating music!

The vlog studio still needs work but we are seeing more progress, No picture it or of the dining table that though it has been cleared is surrounded by mount boxes. But hey, that is a lot done for a bunch of retired and disabled people!

Hope you all had a Fantastic Friday and have a great weekend!

Angel MagicAngel Magic by Lucia Ashta
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Two things ruined this book for me. The first is such a big one that I may not read anything else by this author. I HATE CLIFFHANGERS! If I like characters and the world enough, leave me in a safe place, I’ll be back for more!

The second problem was that way too much helpless romance in both the main character and her love interest. Ugh! How about using that energy to find out her abilities. A part angel part mermaid could have made it quite interesting, but, no, we have to have romance take over and make the pair helpless once again. Ugh!

But maybe I am too old to get the need to be helpless? I think romance should happen between peoples’ strengths. Then the romantic interaction is so much more appreciated. This is a young adult book. But why do we need separate categories? A good book is fun for all!

Still, plenty of people loved this series so try it for yourself.

One-Liner Wednesday


Progress is addicting!

The more I am able to get done the harder it is to quit and go play games. It’s working! ๐Ÿ˜€ Music studio and vlog studio to be finished soon! Yay! Plus other things are somehow getting done without thinking. I love it when it works like that! Case in point, a sink I didn’t plan on cleaning got shining!

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for One-liner Wednesdays. Nice to have a day I don’t have to write as much. LOL!

Tornado Tuesday


No. we’re safe. I know there are some really scary things like floods, and tornados on the east coast. And out here the fire season is getting serious, especially with the lightning storms we are having in spite of sizzling heat. But my tornado is more what I got done and then what I enjoyed as a reward when tired.

I did get a lot of the work done toward my vlog studio and my music studio. Not finished by far but a couple cooler days like today and I think that will be done. I can’t wait! I’ll take pictures if not YouTube the finished results.

And the day ended so beautifully! Forgive the dirty droplets on the window It has been windy and rainy making muddy windows!

I had an issue with passwords and getting into my games got weird. But the issue is finally ironed out. I am doing a sort of inventory of the purchased games to see which I should have downloaded and which I can skip. I tried out something like Mosaic 3? I can’t remember but it was puzzle after puzzle. I may find a time that I might want to play it in the middle of winter, but I need the distraction of great graphics and hidden objects. I can’t see to read well. But with my glasses on upside down, for some reason, I can see the screen well enough to find most objects. They seem to be getting my mind in removal mode. Does that make sense? I play a while then run and get stuff done. Then tired and game again.

My newest fun is Tornado: The Secret of the Magic Cave. The finding is harder as the pictures are smaller but this is a younger feeling game. Though the main characters are at driving age they seem to be living alone in a cabin, and then are having to survive in a cave after a tornado wrecks their lives. They are siblings so I guess that was the way to get away from the romantic element of some of these games. I wish it would play faster but I am enjoying camping without the rocks biting me in my chilled sleep. I probably won’t play the rest of the night as I haven’t played my recorder in days and I miss it.
