    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    Evening greetings everyone,

    Much less humid today but still pretty hot in the sun. At least I’m sitting out now without creating a sweat fest, haha!
    The most ambitious thing I did all day was make a pot of mushroom soup, dairy free of course

    Sam, good to see you & yes, the heat Has been incredible for working outdoors!
    I have been following TG’s blog on the Caring bridge site. She is in the process of putting things into storage once again & planning to travel to Tahoe for the music festival that she & her husband went to every year. She’s been through so much this year my heart hurts for her but she is one strong lady

    Pauly, my bangs are now blocking my view but I refuse to cut them (done that before). I found if I use a very heavy conditioner like Pantene it helps prevent my hair from getting overly big, Lol
    I keep push my hair behind my ears when it’s usually cut above. The back is now doing a 60’s style flip. Someone is going to have a hell of a time trying to fix this mess, haha.

    Det, sounds like you have a lot going on! Better than being stuck & home & bored I guess.
    So this week’s news about Covid & immunity is not great. They’re saying your immunity may only last a few months. I imagine the virus is also mutating like the flu does vaccines could be iffy propositions. I hope some braniac somewhere Figures it out for us. Have fun at the water park - HA HA!
    YB has been walking around here with a rifle but he’s been picking off the groundhogs that are chewing up his veggie garden (3 so far) Lol

    Mick, yep, back on generic Lipitor for my genetically screwed cholesterol problem. Here I am eating primarily vegan & my cholesterol shoots up when taken off the drug, duh.
    ‘A snitch doing time saves 9’ good one
    That was nice of you to take care of your FIL’s outside work in this heat. It’s been pretty awful in a lot of places.

    PQ, your program coordinator is a real pain in the a$$. Sounds like a former supervisor of mine haha!!
    I am very happy with the care my NP has provided me. Doctors just piss me off too much & they don’t listen.
    I hope your bridge game went well!!!

    Hello to Pie & to Cyn.
    Wishing everyone a good night!

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    Greetings!

    Mick, I wonder if your thunderstorms have arrived!
    We had a sun shower a little while ago, strange. Now it’s clouding up looking like a thunderstorm here as well.
    Nothing much new, my hair still looks like hell & I still don’t know when the shops are opening. I made some hot German potato salad for dinner & it was almost as good as my German granny’s. Haven’t thought about that for years. I just put a few pics on FB, my wildflower garden is keeping me happy this summer

    Hello to Pauly. PQ, Det, Pie, Sam. Cyn, thinking of you every day

    Have a nice night everyone!

    MAE ALL...

    Been a busy day for me. Unexpected call from the boss this morning so I hit him up for a decision on everything he hasn't dealt with yet. LOL Opened the fall registration for Childcare and then had to retrain the accountant on the new procedure we all agreed to. Geesh. Was surprised to see the content I was waiting for from the prog coord and when I asked her for the rest of it she had no idea what I was talking about. Figures. But....had an awesome bridge game so all's right in my world.

    Lav...sun showers are strange aren't they. I like them. Hot German potato salad...I haven't had that in forever! Your wild flowers are doing great, sometimes you're not sure what will come up. Nothing new seems to be the theme these days, and that's good.

    Mick...37 YIKES! So I've heard that eating/drinking something hot when it's hot out is supposed to cool you off. Any truth to that? LOL We certainly didn't mean to leave you out of the conversation with all that hair talk. LOL So...do you have a 1976 pic of yourself sitting around? That would be interesting to see. Had to look up what QS stood for. Man, you really do learn something new every day.

    Shout out to Pauly, Sam, Det, Pi and TG.

    Dinner is an experiment tonight. Roasted veggies and garlic/paprika chicken. Wish me luck. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    Aloooha Friday ABeroooos!

    whew, another 108F day to chug through here.

    Lav, I haven't even thought about warm tater salad in ages...hmmmm. maybe with capers.

    PPQ, dinner sounds grand...let us know.

    The girls were so nice and made tacos last night as I was deluged with work and uploading of files. a nice break.

    my boss got a call from his grandaughter yesterday who is 14. she was out with friends walking and they came across a dead body of someone that
    apparently committed suicide by hanging from a public walkway. good freaking grief! and that's a nice neighborhood in St George UT. I think socieity has
    officially lost the last of it's marbles. sigh.

    got one shoot today from 10-12 and then a twilight from 6 to 8:45 tonight. such is the schedule of a freelancer.

    Did managed a good session at Refuge Recovery last night which was lovely.

    Mick, are your dental issues fixed up then? that's really no fun I'm sure.

    thunderstorms? I really miss those...still need some really good lightning pics for the gallery.

    Pauly, I hear 'wet n wild' is opening back up? it's super close to where we live so I imagine we'll
    take a trip there this weekend and splash around.

    onwards and upwards!

    be well loves

    PPQ, forgot to mention: in eastern medicine such as Ayervedic etc they recommend wam drinks on warm days to keep from shocking the body. I really don't think there is
    an actual cooling effect. I think it's more to do with energy balance. er.. from what little I know of it anyway.

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    And good afternoon all hope everyone is well yesterday it was absolute chaos over here all the seaside tattoos and all the beaches were absolutely mobbed to the extent that the government are talking about closing the beaches permanently whilst this virus is on and on top of that yet another illegal street party last night when the police were injured but again in true British Style the government have said we are putting up with it any more of it and we will take our football back the Great British tradition please please stop it or we will get annoyed Julie is in work today, I think she will be going back pretty soon things aren't so good with her dad last night she came home very upset not going into detail but he certainly cannot look after himself and yet he thinks he can so we are going to get more help for him from both his health and hers anyway moving on I was up in the loft this morning again absolutely boiling the silver foil insulation is settle and bonus in the winter but in the summer all that is missing is the Sage and Thyme we are supposed to be getting more storms about 5 tonight hope so I went to bed at about 11 last night couldn't sleep and got up eventually went back to bed at 3 this morning

    There you go a picture of me with hair air 1976 that was 76 or 77 I have just come back from Northern Ireland in the army it looks like I'm actually just finished my paper round haha

    Just checked ..this never posted from my phone earlier

    There's still fcking chaos in Liverpool this morning as all the fans who last remembered them winning the title took to the streets last night..

    ...and now can't remember which fcking nursing home they live at.

    Liverpool supporters have been letting off fireworks since winning the Premier League last night.

    Nice to see something works in the city.

    Today It was take your kids to work day at the freestyle deep sea diving club.
    You should have seen their little faces!

    The last time Liverpool won the league, most fans had to go to the phone box in the street to share their joy - assuming someone had given them the money for the call.

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    BREAKING NEWS!!!

    I got a haircut today, Lol

    I feel SO much better & no longer look like a neglected monkey, haha!!!
    It’s the small things in life that give you the most joy

    PQ, sounds like you have everyone high stepping in the office, nice LOL
    It’s nice to actually see people doing some work for a change. It sucks being the only one!
    I’ve hidden the leftover potato salad in the fridge - it’s mine!! How did your veggie/chicken bake turn out? Sounds good!

    Hey Pauly, hope your day was good. The hair stylist & I had quite a few giggles over the state of my hair but she fixed me right up, thankfully!

    Det, you sound good & busy as well!
    I happen to have many many pounds of red skinned potatoes sitting here at the moment. The Amish guys keep giving them to YB when he drives their produce to the auction. We will be having potatoes in many different forms & fashion for a while, haha.
    Sad that a young person had to witness a suicide like that. It’s hard to get that image out of your mind. I was only a few years out of nursing school & found a patient hanging like that, right in the hospital room, awful.

    Mick, there’s just no sleeping when it’s hot like that, yuck.
    Dealing with aging parents is tough, boy do I know that. It gets to the point that you just have to stop letting them make decisions for themselves when you know they aren’t safe. I feel for you& Julie
    I’m sitting. On the deck listening to the hum of big machines down the road. The farmers are cutting their hayfields & they prefer to work when it’s not so darn hot. Who can blame them?

    Hello to Pie, Sam & Cyn. hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Mae everybody, love the pic Mick I seen the footage of your beaches over there! See these are the people who are gonna ruin it for us all!

I'm so angry at everyone for just being so careless, Lav, glad you got your haircut haha, Det, enjoy wet and wild just keeps safe, I know you will, Lb just left for the airport waaah! It's gonna feel lonely here til I get used to it again, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Saturday
