I feel like a limp dishrag lately, and I’m having allergy or sinus problems to boot. Since I lie awake for a long time in the middle of the night, I tend to nap during the day which doesn’t make for an interesting life. About 3 more days in the 90’s and then it will drop to the 70’s, which is what I love best. To think my entire summer last year was in the 70’s range!
I believe the Old Farmers’ Almanac 2011 version has been released, and I will get one first chance. I hope I’ll be able to read it and to get some long-range predictions so I can decide where I might want to spend the winter, if not here in Sac.
Several people have commented on my vision problems and suggested a magnifying glass. I had a great magnifying glass that I used for genealogy – enlarging old census records, etc., and I often used it for small print such as the telephone book, Woodall’s directory, etc. I lost it somewhere during the past year and I’m sure it is in the rig, no doubt behind or under the sofa. I shone a flashlight numerous times trying to catch sight of it, and even opened out the sofa in an attempt to fish it out. No luck.
So I bought another one since I’ve been in Sacramento, and it is so absolutely terrible I can’t even use it. I think the first one came from Office Depot, which isn’t convenient to where I live now, but over closer to Cal Expo. I wish I could find my original lens, but I don’t know if I can pull the sofa out a bit. I tried and it didn’t budge.
I’ve had very sporadic internet and phone connections the past week. Fortunately I can get online now and then and get up to date with email, news and blogs. I could just skip the news and be better off.
I will probably spend some time tomorrow with family, which becomes very precious time to me when I think about traveling again.
I am adding a little postscript here before very many folks read my blog today, to say that several times lately I make a comment to someone’s blog, go through all the motions to get it published including typing the silly dumb word, but POOF! The comment form is gone, the comment is gone, and I don’t know what happened.
