Idling in the driveway to figure out how to use CarPlay and picking out a song list is more my speed. I haven't done enough highway driving to even begin to figure out how to use the cruise control and the security features it uses. Talk about distracted driving!

Having concerns about technology making cars less safe, myself! Texting in your car is dangerous, period. Distracted driving.

Getting all the cd collection ripped is a pain! It took forever for Tim to do that. MyCivic will also play music from a flash drive, I'm not sure the Sentra will do that. What disturbs me about the Civic is that you can text using Apple CarPlay. Isn't all this technology distracting?

Feeling excited about creating play lists from my cd collection. I've got about 90% of my cd collection ripped and transferred to my phone. (I bought a larger memory card for the phone.) I figured out yesterday how to play the songs through the car's speaker system. Way cool!

Enjoying listening to my playlist in the car. When I plug my phone into my car it doesn't use any data and my phone is always charged. Love it! And Tim is playing Christmas music now. Every time we go to the store he's checking out the holiday stuff. Yikes!

Decorating for Christmas seems to occur earlier and earlier every year. Sheesh! It is only September!

I can relate to the phone-car link. I've answered calls on my car speakers, which is quite interesting, but haven't yet used the connection to play the many songs on my phone.

Coming up on the holiday season. I was at Costco today and they have already started putting out holiday cookies and candies. Now the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hosanna in the beginning of October, and is a big holiday, so I can see putting out macaroons. Not sure I'm ready for this. My husband will begin playing Christmas music any day now. He's been making playlists for my phone. It's driving me crazy. My new car, yes, it's mine, links to my phone, so he feels that I need hours of music. My Dad is very ill, although he's holding his own right now, but I think Tim is trying to make sure we have enough music to listen to for a ten to twelve hour drive. It's kind of sweet.

Backing off Spark time is a good thing when it means you're busy! Sometimes, I let mine build up to an almost horrid number, then spend a slow day playing catch-up.

Venting about the heat doesn't improve it... instead, I split town Thursday night and spent three days in the White Mountains (the ones in Arizona). Stayed at a fishing resort on a lake, even though I don't fish. Canoed, hiked, rode the ski lift to the highest peak at Sunrise Ski Resort. An all-around lovely long weekend.

Understanding how the heat wears you out! Sometimes it would be nice to have a nice cool day! Good for you for starting a block watch. We have lots of retired noisy neighbors who don't miss much instead of a block watch.

Traipsing up and down my street this morning in the heat wore me out. My neighbor and I visited every house on our block to invite the residents to the next Block Watch meeting and give them a Block Watch sign for their window.

Participating in a Toastmasters meeting this morning, we honored a 30-year member of the club. They had two speeches, a roast, and about 10 people who spoke 1-2 minutes, including me. It was fun!

Noticing a huge difference in temperature today. We had a major monsoon rainstorm yesterday, during evening rush hour. Some places in town had three inches of rain in less than a half hour. Flooded out I-17 right in the heart of Phoenix, flooded several major intersections, too. Wow! I was lucky, commute home was not impacted too badly for me.

Missing most of the rain as the evening storm roll through. It's been cooler today, but the sun came out at noon and it's starting to heat up. The humidity is over 70%--not very pleasant out! Our attic fan is screeching and rumbling. Tim oiled the motor and has ordered a new motor for the fan. I hope it comes soon!

Keeping an eye on the weather today. Thunderstorms are headed our way. We need the rain and it will help cool the temperature down to the lower 90's. It's been so humid here we won't notice a rise in the humidity. I can hear the thunder, but no rain yet.

Interesting to discover new words! I also find it very entertaining to make up new (and often inappropriate) words. Why isn't indigesting (oh, my spell check hates that one) a word?

Going to Woxikon.com and looking at verbs helps me when I'm stuck, but sometimes I have a difficult time starting the sentence with an -ing word. Still, there was that time I was paralyzed by a p-ing word and you had to post it!

Exciting day for the guys in the family--on Sunday they went to Grandfather Mountain. They hiked up to the top. Tim said it was cooler in the woods as they were hiking. There was a nice breeze and the temperature was around 80 degrees. It hasn't been that cool here for a while,plus the dew point is up around 75 degrees which makes things pretty uncomfortable.

Quartering an apple to add to my fruit salad. I cut up enough for four servings, adding apples bananas, plums, melon, cherries--whatever fruit we have on hand. I always add an orange which helps keep the other fruit from browning.

Ordering up a year of temperatures between 75 degrees and 85 degrees. I'm sure the Weather Goddess would approve, if a Weather Goddess existed. I can handle about a month and a half more before I've had enough hot weather. That's when I miss living further north. Ah, three and a half more months of heat and humidity. Did you see where the hole in the ozone is repairing itself faster than predicted? Scientists say there is hope that we can turn global warming around. Makes me want to yell "do something!" Change comes about so slowly. I know we can make a difference.

Making sure the ceiling fans are running does help, but with the high humidity and dew point here, we run the air conditioning non-stop. Even though it's cooler at night, it's also more humid. I wouldn't open the windows anyway because of my allergies.

Lazing about indoors this morning. Woke up too late to walk the dogs before the heat kicked on outside. Will do chores shortly. Ceiling fans in most rooms help circulate the air and keep it cooler without running the A/C non-stop.

Juicing citrus is a common activity this time of year.

Phoenix has a dry heat. Our humidity is often in the single digits. 110 here is approximately equivalent to 92-93 in Tampa, FL, in the way it feels and impacts you physically.

Hoping the 120 forecast is wrong wrong wrong! I do remember the hottest day on record as being 122. Beyond YIKES!

Going to be 100 degrees today, that's out of my comfort zone. Jumping out of airplanes is not on my to do list, either. I suffer from vertigo and heights make me want to pass out. I saw the weather forecast for Phoenix. The temperature is 120 degrees for next Sunday. Yikes!

Finding a new way to step out of my comfort zone is rather a regular occurrence for me. However, I doubt I'll do what my older daughter chose to do. I AM NOT jumping out of an airplane!

Deciding to step out of one's comfort zone sometimes comes with a certain risk.

Worrying about the spider on the ceiling at the moment. Maybe my husband can save me. I don't like spiders. Sort of sounds like the song -- I don't like spiders and snakes . . .

We are funny. He he.

Using Google to look up some veggie recipes. I've made eggplant, stuffed peppers, bean salad, and brussels sprouts recently. My husband would have me make the same thing week after week, but I like variety. Usually, I just go to the store, buy what looks good, and go from there. I know I saw a stuffed onion recipe somewhere. Sweet onions are in right now. I haven't made broccoli and cauliflower recently. I like them raw in salads or roasted.

Stopping by would be quite difficult! Got together with family yesterday. It's been a quiet, rainy day., today.

Resting is what I'm doing today. If we lived closer, I might stop by for some of your eggplant. It's quite a trip, however!

Quarreling with myself regarding freezing cooked eggplant. I'm wondering if I can cut the eggplant, dip it in my homemade balsamic vinaigrette, then pre-cook it in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, then build my casserole or freeze it to use later. I don't want to cook the cheese twice (or for too long) because then it gets tough.

There's plenty to share, just stop by for dinner anytime. Finding a q-ing word is really hard!

Pleading to come eat at your house! Eggplant Romano and Bean Salad would be completely LOVELY!

Outstanding meals on the menu this week! I made eggplant parmigiana (actually eggplant Romano) and my favorite bean salad. Yum! The recipes make a lot, but I don't mind leftovers.
