1. August, 2005 - hot again

The heat kicked in again over the weekend. It had been creeping up all last week, but this weekend was when we got the really hot days.

Saturday I took my mom and her roommate up the the American Legion post in Pine City. A good time was had, and they both got to say hello to some folks they haven’t seen for a while. Their first drinks were perhaps a bit weak, so they decided to have a second drink each, and for that one, the bartender poured the drinks a little heavy. By the time I got them back to the senior home, they were both in a pretty darned good mood. It was a good day out, but by the time I got home, I was pretty tired.

By the time I woke up on Sunday it was already hot and sticky out. I had planned to get some yard work done in the morning, but overslept, and ended up just spending the day inside. But I had some yummy sweet corn I'd bought on Saturday, and cooked that up. Two ears Saturday evening, two with a sandwich for lunch on Sunday, and two cut off the cobs and stored in the fridge for use in something today. I'd almost forgotten how good fresh sweet corn is, especially since it's so hard to get it really fresh here in town.

This week looks like a busy week, too. It's going to stay hot through Wednesday night, and I've still got that yard work to do. Plus there's work stuff. Mostly trying to find some new work, I guess.
