A Nice Saturday

This morning I got up about 7:00 and had planned to mow the backyard, but Ron had put a large heavy object in front of the mower and I could not get to it.  So instead I worked on cleaning the garage after I took care of the ponds, fountains, and feeders in the yard.  The temperature started out nice but quickly rose and it got hot and muggy.  There was no breeze and that is unusual.

As I did assorted chores, I was doing laundry.  Since Carmen cut her finger, I had to do my own housework today.  I had not changed the guest beds since we'd had company a couple of weeks ago.  So there was a lot of laundry to do and it was supper time before the last of it was finished.  After being in the yard and garage for a while this morning, I needed to come in and cool off.  I was reading a good book and after I cooled off, it was time for me to go get my hair cut.

When I got back, I did not put my car up, but instead, left it out and cleaned that section of the garage before getting the clippers and trimming several bushes.  I had several piles of cuttings for Ron to haul when he finally got home.  He removed a limb from a tree and finished doing some trimming I could not reach.

By the time I came in, I was soaking wet with sweat.  Yuck!  I took a cold shower and then got some leftovers for lunch.  Again I read for a while as I continued to cool off.  Finally in the late afternoon I started sewing on the quilt in progress.  I got a couple of rows added and lots of pieces cut out for the quilt.

Supper again was leftovers and then I returned to the sewing machine.  During the evening I talked to our daughter-in-law in New Mexico and during the afternoon I had talked to our son in Dallas.  I had trouble hearing both of them but got most of the conversations.  Our daughter-in-law in McAllen sent a picture of a hiking trail our son cut with the riding mower back in the pasture behind their house.  That should be interesting.  He probably could have done a maze with the tall grass from all the rains we have had.

It is always a treat to hear from our kids and their spouses.  I sure miss being able to have clear, understandable conversations with them.  While working in the yard, I finally took off the sound processor because I was sweating so much my hair was soaking wet. 

I finished the book this evening and see that there are 7 in the series.  I am not sure how they will stretch this out for that many books.  I think I will buy the next one on my Kindle and find out.


  1. Getting to the point I hate series...I get right in the middle and either can't find the next book or the kindle price has doubled! Right now I'm hooked on Michael Connelly mysteries; a series about a police detective in LA. Last one delt with drug trafficking on the Mexican border....sound familiar???

    1. I will have to check out that series. Yes, they almost give you the first book in a series and then you are hooked. Was thinking about you this morning and praying for you. Have a good week and praying for a good report from the eye doctor and easier time in Houston.

  2. Luckily, the Austin library has most of his books....but I do have to request holds. Guess somebody besides me likes his books. There is some bad language...but the main character IS a cop and deals with unsavory characters. Also some sex but not to any great detail. I think you would enjoy them if you like mysteries occasionally. The series is called The Harry Bosh series. Book #1 is The Black Echo.
