Mostly sunny and breezy today with temps in the upper 70’s. Still very cool for the middle of July.

I went to the grocery store this morning. Some shelves well stocked others not. I found what I needed except for my usual milk purchase. Sometimes they have the quart and other times, like today, I had to buy the half gallon. This happens every couple of weeks or so. The quart size has a longer shelf life so I do try to keep it stocked up. Though I did not need any I did notice the ice cream section was almost empty.

I watered the hanging baskets on the porch and the stuff on the deck. We’ve had enough off and on rain showers to keep the other flowers watered.

I am reading Triple Jeopardy by Anne Perry.

Mostly sunny today, breezy and warm with temps in the upper 70’s. Storms off and on yesterday and early evening bringing almost an inch of rain.

I went to gym this morning and ran a couple of errands while in town.

No internet or television all day yesterday. I found out last night some bozo knocked down the street sign pole on the corner and ran over the SkyBest telephone/cable box. I reported my outage at noon and they said it was on their end but did not know why. Someone finally reported the box down and they were working on it at 8 last night when I took Colin out.

Cloudy and overcast when we went out early this morning. The rain started around 10 from remnants of Elsa as she goes east and south toward the NC coast. Just cloudy and cool with temps in the low 70’s for the rest of the day. We had roughly two inches. Enough to water the plants and grass.

With the rain moving out I it was a good time to out and pull some weeds and grass from the natural areas.

James is on vacation this week. With the dry, hot weather the grass is not all that high.

Mostly sunny today and warmer with highs in the low 80’s and calm with low humidity.

I had to go into town to have some copies made at the library and pick up some books. Stopped at the grocery store on the way back home for the usual juice, milk, and lettuce. Several good sales on things I usually buy so picked those up. The place was packed for a Tuesday morning. Guessing a lot of summer folks have arrived.

Mostly sunny today and a little warmer with highs in the upper 70’s and calmer winds. Low this morning was 56. Still cool for the first of July. Guess it will turn hot all off sudden at some point.

52 degrees this morning with a stiff breeze when we went out around 6 am. Lots of sunshine today with temps in the low 70’s and winds gusting to 12 mph.

I spent the morning outside pulling grass and weeds from the natural areas. I cut back the bleeding heart plants and trimmed back some of the tall blooms on the lambs ear by the driveway. I cleaned up the lambs ear by the side of the porch where some of it had rotted and died off and cut back the blooms. The bees like the pink blooms so I left some for them.

Laundry this afternoon and first of the month accounting stuff balancing the checkbook and paying some bills.
