We had much the same as recently, this week. 80's-90's during the day, 30's - 40's at night. We may get a little rain this weekend, though.
My county, and Sonoma Co., were just declared to be in drought emergencies. A lake bed that water is gotten from, is 43% full only, and Ukiah, where it is, only got 12" of rain this past winter, instead of their usual 37". And, while ours are the only counties to have that designation so far, others may follow. And, it's not just our state, it's 77% of the west coast, they are saying.
Helicopters that had to land on the hwy. this week, flew super low over our fields. That doesn't happen every day. I guess that, because they were almost ready to land, they needed to be low, which meant flying where there were no wires, and there are none through our fields.
Dh had an appt. for an echocardiogram and blood work a couple of days ago, and when he came out, the gift shop at the hospital was open. He'd forgotten his glasses, so couldn't read while waiting, and thought that he'd look to see what they had, while waiting for Ds.
It turns out that they had some on-sale reading glasses. One pair, which is a lower strength than I've used for years, was on sale for 7.95 from 16ish dollars.
But, the woman said that they were now on clearance at 75% off of the *sale price.*, so were $2.16 with tax.
The funny thing about all of this, is that I've been looking for this style of reading glasses for a long time, as the ones that I wear always pinch next to my nose at the top, no matter what I do.
Not only are these super comfortable for me, but I see as well with them as I do with the higher strength ones. I don't know why, it's a mystery, but I'm not complaining! Hooray for good deals!
The baby is taking steps now, and Frakie's not sure if he wants her to be able to follow him now, but I guess that hanging out under the high chair for dropped Cheerios and such makes up for it!
Ds got to vegetable shop, so I spent some of my time this week breaking down and cooking broccoli, celery, etc. I still have a few little things to work with, like some beets and carrots, but the important ones, the ones that won't keep, are done at least.
Our 1st batch of polliwogs have legs! And, there are other, younger ones, which don't yet. It's a lot of fun to watch the changes.
The deer have increased their numbers. The other day we saw 7 does together, and a young buck who's not yet full-sized.
I'm posting an update, below.
Well, that's all from this neck of the woods. How was your week?
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
