We had some hot weather this week, after 1/2" of rain - the only rain for a while now. By Wednesday, it was 97 degrees, and by Thursday it was 98 degrees, but on Friday it cooled off to the mid-80's.
I don't know what the weather will be next week, except that no rain is predicted, there will be some wind, and some clouds next week which should make it a little cooler, presumably.
Dh had another physical appointment this week, plus a phone appt., which disrupted our schedule for a bit, but it's done now.
The cardiologist added a heart medication to Dh's others, and read him his test results.
Then, we had a strange visit from people that we don't know. An older man and woman drove up here, wanting to rent the house. The man said that he was born in 1933, but he didn't look it at all, and the woman with him, who was not his wife, he said, didn't look her age, either.
Have you ever had a funny feeling about people? I had no reason not to like and trust these people, but I was uncomfortable around them the whole time, and was glad when they drove away. Odd, I know, but...
We had a very, very busy phone week, and everyone was just a tad difficult to deal with. Full moon, perhaps? I don't know, but the people at my antivirus site made us wait forever on the phone, then cancelled my subscription, rather than renewing it. It was a little trying.
Then, the site that I ordered the Pinesol from cancelled my order without getting in touch with me first. I got my order back after about 40 minutes of work.
And, so it went all week long with phone calls.
On the other hand, I found, in a tote that Ds brought up from the house, a few things that I was glad to have found. Some photos, for example. One of my grandfather with me when I was about a year old, and several of Ds at about 7.
Also in the tote was a hand painted train case, one book with all of the Dark is Rising books in it, a postcard from my mom from Big Sur one time, a stack of quarters, and a small, Jade heart, & a ring that I had in junior high.
I couldn't believe some of them. The jade heart, however, has a story with it. When I was a teen, we took a trip north. We went to Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Jade Beach (never saw jade there.), San Simeon/Hearst Castle, Felton (redwoods), Yosemite, etc.
One of the places that we stopped for a couple of nights was a motel across from the beach. Across the street, the beach went for a stretch, then there was a hill with pine trees on it, literally at the end of the beach. When you hiked up the hill, and went down the other side, you came to a cove where the ocean swirled.
We went down to the swirling ocean cove, and there was a small cave that was covered in water. To look in the cave, you had to go under water. We did that, and the bottom of the cave was covered in California jade. We put a few pieces in our pockets, went back to the motel, and got an ice bucket. Remember those, to fill ice from the ice machines?
We dove under again and again, getting jade and putting the pieces in the ice bucket. Then, we each (my sister and I, that is.) made room in our suitcases, and put jade in them with our clothes.
Of all the pieces that we got, 2 stood out to me, and I kept them all these years. One was this small, natural heart-shaped piece, and I had no idea where it was. I thought that it was in a little metal cup, but, apparetly, I'd moved it to the train case with some of my other 'treasures.'
The hens laid a lot of eggs again this week. I wish that I could share. I made a pudding with them, and a couple of meals, so far. I hope to bake this weekend, and freeze what I bake.
We found a patch of wild irises, the very pale lavender ones, up by the future generator house. So, we are marking them, to keep from disturbing them when they aren't visible.
We also found some wild mountain raspberries, which we'll also mark. They are becoming difficult to find in our county.
This week, the last of the pear and apple blossoms were out. Some smell really nice.
The frogs are very happy, though we've had to work hard to keep their water filled on the hotter days. There are now 3 stages of polliwogs living together. Some minute polliwogs, some larger polliwogs, and tiny frogs now, some with tails, some without.
On Monday, when the moon was lighting up our yard in the middle of the night, something set off the driveway zone detector. Dh shined a flashlight in that direction, to make sure that it was deer, and there were at least 3 different types of eyes shining back.
We know that some were deer, and *think* that some may have been coyotes or foxes, but have no idea on the other type. Raccoons? A bear? A 'possum? Although, for some reason, we haven't seen the latter in close to 2 years, which is strange. Oh, maybe a skunk?
Anyway, there were all sorts of animals across the driveway, on the hill. That's not usual. But, it was a full moon, so....!
Well, that was my week, how was yours?
