Oh my, but it’s hot here. Supposed to be 105 today.
Reports say that by 2100 it will be too hot to live in South Asia. Wow. Will the heat simply wipe out entire populations? Scary stuff.
I’ve got my apartment pretty dark by covering the windows. If I make it much darker I’ll need a flash light to see.
I have an appointment next week to see an opthamologist after seeing my regular optometrist about my cataracts yesterday.
I will have to see what my insurance will pay. Because it’s $2700 per eye and then additional other costs are tacked on.
Medical costs are so out of reach these days. If you don’t have insurance I don’t see how folks begin to pay. So many people in this country file for bankruptcy every day due to medical costs. What a predicament.
After my appointment I picked up a prescription at the pharmacy and also went to get a few groceries at the Walmart market.
Last night I just blended up a smoothie for supper. Who wants to cook even a TV dinner in this weather?
You know, I could have sworn when I purchased this cone flower plant that it was red. The one flower that had bloomed was red. But now they’re orange.
How strange. Oh well, I love them no matter what color they are. Maybe Mother Nature simply changed her mind.
Have you been able to keep your garden alive in this weather?
I’ve got parts that are barely hanging on. I just keep scooting the pots around trying to keep the plants alive. And we’ve thankfully had a lot of rain.
I never have seen that pretty black butterfly again. I so wish I could have gotten a photo when I first saw it.
I finished reading “It All Falls Down” by Sheena Kamal last night and will start another book this evening.
The maintenance man stopped me as I was going out yesterday and told me that his parishioners had taken all the books I gave him, and did I have more. I told him I have several books I’ve recently read for him to take to them.
I sure don’t think I’ll be going out this weekend. I’ll just be trying to stay cool like the rest of you.
Be careful in that heat. It is brutal.
Today I am grateful for my old air conditioner. Hoping it will last a little longer. Though it isn’t very effective, it’s sure better than nothing.
I have a window air conditioner ordered online from Walmart. It will arrive next week. I had been waiting until my new Walmart credit card arrived so I could get $25 dollars off my first order with it. It came yesterday.
The manager said I couldn’t put a window air conditioner in because it would look like they were slum lords if future residents saw them in windows. But I’m putting it in the back, so no one will see it.
