I didn’t think I would post an entry today, but decided to make this a short one. I spent late afternoon and early evening yesterday at Jeannie & Donald’s house, celebrating Donald’s birthday with the rest of the family. Most everyone got into the pool. As hot as the weather is I had no desire to get into the water.
It was getting to be the last light of day around 9 p.m. and I realized I’d better drive home while there was still some light left. I just about made it; there is a big difference in what I don’t see in the dark! One thing I’m noticing is a very slight improvement in my eyesight, day by day, although nearly imperceptible. I’ll happily take improvement in tiny doses, and maybe in 5-1/2 weeks the doctor will pronounce me fit to rejoin the human race!
The heat continues and the hotter it gets, the less I want to cook or eat. I should be eating more, but just can’t stand the thought of having to cook anything. I’d even think about eating out, but the two trips I have to make outdoors with the dog every day are enough to make me run for the cover of my much cooler apartment. I’m still not having to use the A/C, and with temps of 101 the last couple of days, that is pretty good. It probably gets up to around 80 inside, so the 20 degree difference really makes a difference. I have to find a cooler place to live next summer.
