We have a place in the hills here too where you can pick your own strawberries, we are going to do that in Spring, nothing like a nice drive up in the hills

We had a couple of rainy days. I just think of how nice and cool the weather is with the rain.

Hiding from the heat in our air conditioned bedroom. Coming out every 3 hours for a smoke or 2. Have not taken a stress test since 1995. Back then I think the test cost $1,200 and they seemed disappointed that that I performed the test with no problems. Sorta doubt I could do the same today; 17 years of retirement and a sedentary routine spent managing investments on the PC have taken their toll. Wish I could find something personally satisfying to do with the past 12 years of investment gains.

I love living close enough to my sister that we can walk over to each other's places and borrow lemon juice.

Went shopping at 7:30 a.m., came home, put groceries away, delivered foods to church, sat out on the patio and did some sewing, came back in, too hot, took a nap and here I am.

Might be a thought to take Excalibur with you on laundry days.

I have been nursing a sick hubby while not feeling 100% myself so a very quiet day.
