This morning I headed out before 8 a.m. to gas up my car and then get my hair cut across the street from there. But even though Supercuts had just opened, there were already three men waiting and she said it would be an hour wait.
So I left and went about half a block to the grocery store. My ankle has been doing quite well and I decided to get groceries. I’m still doing the ankle exercises and icing it at night. And I’m finally seeing the end of that tunnel I think.
I got groceries and came home. Guess I’ll get my hair cut later.
I would rather have gotten all my errands done while I was out because I don’t like to leave Charlie. His little face looks so sad when I leave him. I’m glad he at least has Ivy with him.
Last night he was asleep on the bed while I watched another episode of Bloodline when Ivy jumped up on the bed. She laid down near Charlie and after a bit she took one paw and put it on his back.
She usually always does this. Just puts a paw on him and leaves it there but doesn’t move it around.
I was surprised he didn’t react. Is it a loving gesture on her part?
One thing I’ve noticed so far this summer is that my apartment seems cooler than it has in previous years. Remember last fall they put insulation in the ceiling.
And then just after the first of the year they took my old sliding glass doors out and installed the French door.
I figure maybe between those two changes, and my keeping the curtains closed during the heat of the day, it’s allowing my apartment to stay cooler.
Did I ever tell you what happened when Nathan and his boss took that old sliding glass door out?
The day after they took it out, both of them got really sick and had red spots all over them. They went to the doctor and no one knew what it was. But they stayed sick for a few months.
All they could figure was that something inside the construction of that sliding glass door was contaminated in some way and thus made them sick. I wonder what could have caused such a thing?
Nathan told me he has ordered hazmat-type gear for when they have to tear out another one because they don’t want to get sick again.
What could it be? Some type of mold? Though I don’t think they saw any. Something used in construction in the sixties?
I felt bad for them even though there was nothing I could do.
It seems this country is going backwards in terms of trying to keep our environment safer and less toxic.
This really makes me angry. I think of little children and the elderly trying to breathe, and lawmakers are cutting back the laws and eliminating the safeguards that were in place. I just don’t get this.
Sure, it helps wealthy companies get by with more to make more money with less hassle. But in the long run it seems like a very stupid and lackadaisical way of doing things.
The mission of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is to protect human health and the environment. To hold those accountable who are polluting to save a buck.
I don’t know how I got on this topic, but every time I see another environmental safeguard struck down by the federal government it sets my teeth on edge.
I know we all want a safe or safer environment for our grandchildren and their children.
