What are you doing?

I looked out in the back yard, and thought, what are those big whitish clumps? They weren't here yesterday. Then upon closer inspection, they looked like Hen of the Woods mushrooms! I was so excited!

After consulting my trusty mushroom book, I found they are not Hens, they are Black Staining Polypores. Drat. While not exactly poisonous, Blacks can cause "severe digestive distress." No thank you.

The temp was at 81 degrees and I had the window wide open. So I look at my Weather Bug and checked the humidity. Only 83%. No wonder my AC was working overtime. And we have central AC. Every time I walked past the window, you could feel the humidity coming right in the window. I had Pirate close it quickly.

La Nina has been around the west coast here for the last 6 years. The west coast could use some El Nino.

caslon, be careful of what you wish for.

Will El Nino 2015 rival the strongest year on record?

So true! El Nino will bring your mud slide season.

Waiting for 7 am when the town wakes up and I can go back into the "city" and do some grocery shopping.

Mom and Dad's hours will be changing soon, and since I am the Grandma and live within walking distance of Tyler's school, he might be getting dropped off to me at 7AM when they have to be at work, so that I can walk him to school and get him there by 8.
It's only a 15 minute walk from here, through a residential neighborhood.

I'm more than happy to do that! Just will take some getting used to. I'm starting on my early bird schedule now, even though their schedule change won't actually start for another week. Gotta get used to it. Nighty night!
Careful Cheryl,
Those 15 min walks really tone up the legs.Other mom's will think your Tyler's Mom and not his Grandma... Watch that Grandma strut.WOOOO!

I don't know about being mistaken for Tyler's mom, Munky, only in my dreams! I do hope her hours change though, and that this works out. Twofold - I'll get to spend time with Little Man every single day, and it will also give me a reason to HAVE to get out and walk every day - no more "oh, I'll walk tomorrow..."

CG, I just recently read that same link on El Nino - scary stuff.

I hear ya, Taxy. I don't want to 'adult' today either, so I'm putting it off until tomorrow.

I just made a batch of vanishing oatmeal raisin cookies - they're baking now and the house smells so good.
