Our weather was warmer this week. high 40's a couple of nights, but mostly 50's, and until the wee hours, some 60's. The days were mostly 80's to 90's. We had a couple of very windy days.
Our frost-free date in my area is May 15th. So, I'm not really surprised, and wouldn't be surprised if we got more frost with the strange weather, but we shouldn't. It looks about the same next week, with no rain in sight.
We've been getting solicitations to go on a new phone plan with AT&T. They know a lot of our personal information, too much, but are a little off on a couple of points. So, we called AT&T. Apparently, they are aware of this scam, and told us to block them using star-60. Yikes.
We finally got all of our data switched over from the old DVR to the new one. Today we will hook up the new one, and have the company activate it. Then, at our leisure, we can transfer some of the data back onto the new one. I'm glad that it's completed to this point, though, as it took a lot of my time to transfer a couple of pieces at a time.
I spent too much time on the sidelines, computer-wise, again this week. One day, I got a deadly blue screen before bed, then when I opened the computer the next morning, I got another immediately. Argh! So, once it shut down, and I got it re-opened, I spent a while letting the computer *slowly* retrieve things. I am still missing an important file.
Then, and only then, can I put everything back where it belongs. It's like someone throwing everything from the room on the floor, and having to pick it all up and put it away.
And, speaking of that, Thyri just found the clothes hamper in her room. She puts all of her toys in it now. Ds said that if anything is missing, that's where they will have to look. She is a lot better, by the way.
I've done small things, too, things that I do each week, such as make bread, and do my banking and work entering expenditures, etc. The usual, but it takes part of each day.
My water tanks are empty, which isn't good. In order to run the water at all, we need to cut down the weeds and high grass next to the well. The rain that we had created lush growth, and now with no rain, it's drying.
*Then* we can take the small generator down to the well early one morning, and run a tank of it's gas...maybe 6-8 hrs. max. It will take about 3 days to fill all three tanks at that rate.
Once it's run in the morning, it needs to come back up here to run for the day. Besides, after the trouble that we've had with people stealing, I wouldn't leave it down there anyway. This is water for bathing, dishes, the polliwogs, the critters to drink, watering plants with, etc. so we need it.
We are still being annoyed by flies for some reason, though there were fewer today than the past week. We definitely need to set up a fly trap. Dh said on Sunday, so...!
The hens are back to eating their oyster shell, for strong eggshells. For about a week, they didn't touch it. I guess that they know what they're doing.
We saw the Siamese up here this week. He was walking by the growing garlic. He looked very healthy, as always. I have given up offering him food, as he doesn't want it. Either he's eating until stuffed at another house, or he's like Uhura, and is filling up on rodents. Blech. But, 'tis the season, apparently. I'd love it if he wanted to come in closer and make friends, but he prefers to be friendly from afar.
Well, that's the news from this neck of the woods. How was your week?
