I finally got a day yesterday where I could just stay home. And I needed it. I am so tired from running around. How did I ever hold down a job? I know I was constantly exhausted.
My sweet little Snowy is sitting next to me on the sofa. She is looking a lot whiter since Daddy bathed her. She had gotten into some dirt and was looking a little... well... gray. Now she's white again and smells nice. She wants to be petted and is licking my arm and pushing against me to get what she wants.
It was HOT yesterday. It got up to 103*F (40*C)! And the humidity was through the roof. It was really windy too. I hung the wash outside and it was dry in no time. I love the smell of wash hung in the sunshine. It is something I grew up with and it always reminds me of summer vacation and my grandmother's love and good times.
Needless to say I spent most of the day indoors. The only time we went out was to go to Rite Aid to get a medication the doctor wanted Joe to have that wasn't covered by his insurance. We were able to get an over the counter version which isn't as good (according to his doctor) but she said we should try rather than paying $550 for the uncovered prescription.
While we were there I found a water bottle which holds 20 oz. I am trying to drink at least 40 oz. of water a day so this was perfect. It was only $2 so Joe bought it for me. I think this will help me because I will know I have to drink two of these a day. And it has a tight fitting lid in case I knock it over (which I have a tendency to do).
I had another Chobani yogurt today. This one was salted caramel with caramel flavored yogurt topped with mini pretzel sticks, pralines and chocolate chips. It was yummy. I think I have a new lunch. I'm going to the store to get more.
I thought I would show you my jewelry that I wore today. I wanted something light and fun.
This is a little glass fish. When I worked for the Academy of Natural Sciences I was the secretary for the Ichthyology Department (fish). Naturally I got into collecting all kinds of fish items. This was in the gift shop and I got it. I've always loved it. But it's light weight and being see through appears to not take up a lot of space.
I wanted a bracelet, too, but didn't have one that went with the outfit. So I made myself a wrap bracelet out of some variegated yarn I had laying around. The colors were perfect. I just made a chain stitch with my fingers (didn't even use a crochet hook). I think it turned out great.
I still didn't get any cleaning done. It's just so hot. Today it's only supposed to get to 97*F (36*C) so I'm going to do my best to get SOMETHING done. Anything would be an improvement. But first I'm going to get a little more sleep. Hope you all have a good day.
