I thought there was some dynamite here as well. That shook me, Charlie & the cats up.
This place has had some rain but still not as much as we need. Now that the cedar pollen is on most of the trees... scary with fireworks going on low to the ground. I don't think there was any specific to this area. Nt too many sirens... but any sirens scare me.
Tonight we get the first hard freeze. It is 80 and going to 83 this afternoon, but dropping to 28 tonight.
Tomorrow day will be 49 but dropping to 23 overnight. Then back to 55/32 on Monday - upper 30's Tues & wed with days at 64 and 71 Thurs will be 59 and down to 29 . Luckily days will be all sunny.
I need to turn off the water heater & empty, plus turnoff the well and empty and open all the house taps. I have lots of well water bottled up to flush the toilet and do dishes. I took my shower this morning to be o the safe side.
Everything else is bottle drinking water. Boy dropped of 9 full & I have 2 half full. So plenty. Plus both bathtubs have lots of 3 or 4 gal cat litter jugs full of well water. Not counting those by the potted plants and smaller gal jugs in the kitchen.
I hate dealing with freezes.
Charlie is keeping a look out for deer. But we only spied one north of A's yard. I think he is flying back today or tomorrow. Hope he can. as so many planes were cancelled this past week. Hundreds of people never left at all.
It has been foggy alot in the mornings, but this week supposedly SUNNY. I was hoping for sun so I could do laundry - big items... but guess not with temps flirting with 30 & below.
My phone won't send Texts, or emails off & on.
Though I did get a terrific photo from YDGD and her friend. She has put on a tad of weight but just enough so that it suits her. She is lovely.
I no longer can get photos from Boy. Even by email.
My calls from DD are also being messed with by Google's changes. I am furious.
Well, time for lunch for me.
Oh I was wondering how many of us have rocking chairs. I have been looking into the benefits of having on. I really want to move my rocker into my bedroom. The living room is quite crowded with plants, chances cage etc.
I am also going to start cutting up small boxes and putting them in the trash along with one bag of recycling at a time. I only have 6 bags of recycling left.
I need to wait for more sunshine to cut up boxes during the day. To stack in the flat bed trailer. I really can't do it if it's raining.
I just got a notice that Sunday will be cloudy 49 days 23 night. Looks like 30s/upper 20's rest of week but highs will be mid 50's. mid 60.s low 70s through thursday.
OK time to play ball with Charlie. Kitty has begun sneaking into my bedroom. Soli is black and I don't turn on bright lights at night but leave on the smaller battery lit candles.
He has almost tripped me up at least once every day.
OK Off to play ball.
Take care - Have a great day and hopefully a much better year.
