Summer is Finally Here

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Summer came today and I'm going to BBQ at my former neighbors house this afternoon. Just three of us. Hamburgers, sausage, mac salad and whatever else. Allen grills half peaches with some sort of sweetner drizzled over the top with a scoop of ice cream. Yum! He's diabetic so I know the food will be healthy. I bought the peaches yesterday so they are in the car in a brown bag to ripen a little more. I hope they don't cook in the heat. LOL

I've been visiting at my old complex two days in a row and got all my purses delivered. Friday I brought home my friend's slacks to fix the hem so she can wear them tomorrow when she goes for lazer surgery so I had to return them yesterday. We all had a nice visit. I took an apple with me that I ate for lunch.

Since I moved here I get out more than I ever have before. I actually have to leave the building to go see friends so I have the best of both worlds. A smaller, cheaper apartment with air conditioning and more activity.

My left eye is very sore. A stye is developing. I used eye wash yesterday and then when I woke up this morning it was all crusty so I put some stye meds on it and it is feeling a little better. I'm brewing tea at the moment and will put the bags in the frig to cool and use them for compresses. Put the tea in a pitcher to drink this afternoon. The tanic acid in the tea draws out the infection. It has been a long time since I've had a stye. I hate them.

I'm hearing the heatwave is starting to break now. What a relief for everyone. I do not like it hot. Around 70 suits me fine, that's why I like it here in WA State. We are the Evergreen State because we get so much rain.

Have good week.

    I live in Arlington and we do have AC but today was the first day we turned it on. Looks like the heat will be here all week. That is good as we will be in the fall like weather soon. Take care of your eye. Sandy

    You are right, Brenda -- my sister lives in Marysville and her home has no air conditioning. And believe me, there are days that she needs it!

    Of course your heat is nothing like we have here in Arizona. I hate going to Phoenix for 2 days, but you do what you have to do.

    It is so nice that you have so many friends to go visit, it's what keeps us alert and alive!
