A lot of water under the bridge...

since I last made it here!

Literally...figuratively...

I spent June working 5 day weeks, picking up an extra day to cover someone who was out injured. I thought I was putting money ahead for our 4th of July party; instead I ended replacing a hot water tank. We still had the party and dinner (fireworks are still legal here); though things are "tight" I'm glad to be back to a 4 day week! Though I'm down 40 pounds and a lot of inches since I rejoined the work force, it takes one to feel like doing anything after 4 and 5 left me still aching when I went back after 2 off, lol.

There is much to do around here still before fall finds its way to the Plains as well, though with the current heat wave I'll be doing it in early mornings and back in by noon. Right now it's 100F. (37C.) on the north side of the house in the shade...the humidity adds about 10 to that right now and I don't deal with it like I used to! (There was a time I'd have gone out and fished all day when it was like this and not even noticed...of course, that time was about 100 pounds ago!)

So for this afternoon it's inside projects...there are always enough of them as well!

I hope life is being kind to each of you!
