We’ve had two days of reprieve from the oppressive ninety degree heat this week, very refreshing. However, it’s supposed to climb right back up there and stay for the next several weeks. Ugh!!! I don’t do well with the heat. I’m hot natured and use a fan all year long.
Early this week Tiffany and I went over to the local park and walked around the lake. That is where we filmed this week’s youtube video. It was nice and something we will probably do weekly for a while. The outdoors really helps with mood and overall mental health, as well as being good for vitamin D.
We walked all the way around it. We walked mostly on the “road” but also in the grass walking from shady spot to shady spot. It bolstered our mood and we were able to get back to the house and be productive.
There hasn’t been a whole lot happen this week. I’ve started Mario Odyssey from the beginning again. I’m loving it as much or more this time around. Since I know what I’m doing, it I’m not losing as many lives on each level, which is really nice!
Oh! We finished the puzzle we started after Tiffany’s birthday. I was surprised how easy it was. There was enough gradient in the sky to make placing the pieces not as difficult as it could have been. And enough unique details to help in placing other pieces. It was a fun puzzle and I will do it again some time.
On errand day Tiffany and I found a deal on some luggage. We got some nice pieces half price!!! We were amazed and very thankful.
We’re going back to my parents’ house today to finish painting the outdoor pieces my mom has that have been quite weathered. You may remember that we started working on them last week but we weren’t finished with all the touches, even after working for four hours. Whatever we get done today will be it, done or not. Mom wants her dining room table returned from being an art studio.
Hopefully, I remember to take some pictures to share next week. Unfortunately they won’t be as dramatic as they could have been with good before and after shots. :\ Oh well.
Well, that’s about it for me this week. I’m still reading the third in the iRobot series by Isaac Asimov, The Robots of Dawn. It was going along enjoyably until chapter 25. Then for a few chapters I was definitely concerned with it. I’m nearly 60% finished and it’s looking better. I’ve borrowed it from the library through the Libby app, so I’m not reading any others right now, in case my loan expires before I’m finished.
Tiffany and I have taken to spending a timed thirty minutes outside reading each day. We prefer to do this right after breakfast but yesterday it was right after lunch. That was okay because the high was only in the high 80’s yesterday but . . . oh, I’m repeating myself now . . . sorry about that.
Well, I’m going to run for now. I hope you have a good weekend.
Until next time, God bless,
