Early and Often

Yesterday's heat was stifling. (Temperature: 97-99 depending on time. Heat index: 100-105). We've been so spoiled this season that an overdose of real summer is more than we can take!,

I did a bunch of running around yesterday. Pearl is generally some of the best kind of therapy for me (outside the general reassurance of my nearest and dearest in a variety of ways) so that did help overall. Even so, the heat and being sick nailed me. I didn't do anything that I had planned to yesterday except pick up the wallpaper for the bathroom. It's still going to be there, right?

In addition to picking up things so that we could eat (well, so the mother could eat; I've been eating soup, a sure sign of illness on my part), so the zoo could eat, and so the house an stay some semblance of livable, I bought and cut a board for the deck. The mother worked on the deck most of the day yesterday, despite my repeated warnings to just knock it off.

In fact, she's out there now and has been for a while. Better now though than later when the heat is to be a repeat performance of yesterday. I'm up early on kitten detail. (Taz, a name the mother is reluctantly dealing with, is growing like a weed and eating like a pig! He'll need his own house soon.)

Once he's lined out, it's nap time again for me. (See, I AM being good.) At some point, before the sun goes down, i'll put the new board on the deck. Otherwise, I'll do some stuff for work, continue to hold down the fort with the animals and just rest. I'm not even going to think about that yard ... much.

I hate shopping when I feel sick; so congrats on making through that.

I hope you feel better soon!

I hope you feel better, rest is the best medicine, along with some soup.

It is 4:27 pm, we have hit 90 and the index is 100. Gosh how I hate this weather.
