Washing laundry is a necessity. But anyone who doesn't take advantage of this hot weather either with an outdoor clothesline or on racks, is crazy. Why heat up the house using the dryer? Let Mother Nature do it for you.

I would love to be able to eat hot seasoned foods. But I am unable to. So I made a small bowl of Angel Hair pasta with butter and one stupid red pepper flake. It is amazing how much heat that one flake emmited into the pasta.

got done at the pool. We all decided to do the pizza buffet tonight, not such a good choice. Feels good to be relaxing in the recliner.

3:18AM and can't sleep. Can't find a comfortable position - more, I think, because I'm tired of laying down than from the mild sciatica pain. My head says sleep but my body says no. Already tried walking around, I put laundry in the drier. Guess I'll try reading some more.

That sucks when you can't, but want to sleep. Been there many times. Hope reading does it for you. Just laying there even with your eyes closed doesn't always help. It just makes your mind start working. for me it is hand sewing. After a while I can't even see what I am working on. So that is when I try to make it to sleep. Usually works for me. Good luck. Hope you don't have too many nights like this.

Is that sort of like the princess and the pea?
