Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s finally Friday. Yay!!!
I’m in a bitchy mood. It’s still hot. I go out for 5 minutes and I’m drenched in sweat. What kind of summer is this?????? Oh. Right. It’s summer. Never mind.
So, until the mega-heat breaks, I’m sorta stuck inside. I did stop at Home Depot yesterday and spent way more money than I intended. Yet, it needed to be done. I needed a sprayer for the Brush Round-up I need for the poison ivy in the back. I do not intend to ask my brother to clear brush again after the poor baby got such a bad case of poison ivy. I so wish I could get rid of it without chemicals, but this has been a fight from the beginning and I’m caving. I have a fish pond in my back yard. I abhor using chemicals because of the fish and the puppers, but what do you do? Thankfully, the poison ivy is on the opposite side of the yard of the pond. I’m planning on spraying the Round-Up in the intense heat so that by the time we can spend a decent amount of time outside, it might be a bit dissipated. I also got the joint compound and tape for the bathroom, so that I can fix it and paint. There are four more paint chips. I will show you when I find the stupid camera. It’s not really its fault. I misplaced it and keep forgetting to look for it. So, I guess it’s my fault. Sometimes living alone sucks, people. I try to blame the animals, but they love me and are totally uncooperative.
I also got a Japanese beetle trap. I would take a picture of the lace-like leaves from my Linden tree, but try to picture it in your mind since the camera thing is still unresolved. My Linden is being systematically stripped by the little bastards, so I got a trap. I’ll let you know if it works at all.
Then, I got deck stain and disposable gloves. I’m a freak. I admit it. I am frightened by the chemicals in the world, so I wear disposable gloves whenever I touch these icks. So much can be absorbed into our bodies by our skin and so many chemicals are completely untested for long term effects. Oops. That soapbox pops out all the time when I’m talking about chemicals and our FDA. My apologies. I’m a radical when it comes to anything that can harm our world. We won’t even go into the obvious, like guns.
OM. I just re-read my post. Please don’t judge me harshly. Oh, hell. Go ahead. I don’t mind. I would! I am a stream of consciousness writer. I know I said I was a thinking writer, but sometimes there is little thinking that goes into it, and today is a perfect example.
Anyway, I’m gonna go now, since I have no real conclusion, or point. Here is my soundtrack for the day. An absolutely fabulous version of “Heat Wave” by Joan Osborne. Damn. This is good.
Have a wonderful summer weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
