It’s hotter than holy heck here. On Friday, it was cool and damp and I had on a long sleeve tee, jeans and shoes and socks because my feets were cold. Saturday, it was still spitting and a bit warmer, but not all that warm. By Sunday, the furnace went on and on Monday, it was a blast furnace. Over 95. Come on already,willya? One or the other. Poor Grover is miserable and I’m not feeling all that great either. Got overheated on Sunday doing yard beating, but somehow survived to tell the tale. I heard that there was snow falling in the mountains out west. WTF???? This is too weird.
I did get a bunch of work done this weekend. I have to clear the back 40 along the privacy fence so that it can be replaced. It appears to have rotted. The giveaway? Grover went through it and broke a slat in half. I do not need the Grove to go through an entire fence and I need to get the fence replaced while the back neighbors are still people I know and like. With this economy you never know who’s moving in, why and for how long.
I’m crocheting and knitting, too. No pictures yet. My in-progress photos are pathetic, so I’m not even gonna try. I’ll show you the completeds when they are completed.
Hope you all have had a good Memorial weekend. I did go to the cemetery on Sunday to say “hey” to Mom, Dad and my younger brother. It was verdant and soggy and hot. I like going to the cemetery because it’s so peaceful and quiet and I can have private conversations with my deceased relatives. I know. I’m strange. Sometimes it’s just easier not having unnecessary feedback. As I was weeding around the gravesites, I ran into a WWII vet and because he had a cap on that claimed he was a WWII vet, I thanked him for my freedom and with that small random act of kindness he went on about how all the wars after WWII were unwinable because of the U.N. I am not informed enough to criticize or agree, I just thought it rather bittersweet that he could take my gratitude and turn it into a tirade. Lord, take me before I get that way, please!
And, because I just heard a song by this band, Mountain, I’m gonna leave you with my soundtrack for today. This is my favorite Mountain song, “Mississippi Queen”:
