Come on Friday!

Well, what can you say.  My days are flying by and yet I seem to be standing still!  How is this possible?  Still working 12-14 hours a day, but I’ve started coming home during lunch and taking a nap.  Gives me the strength to see the afternoons thru!  And last night we had severe weather warnings  – hot temps and lots of thunderstorms, complete with lightening.  So unusual for us here in the desert.  It’s hot again today and this evening I came home to a broken air conditioner.  The call is in for a repair, but who knows when that will happen.  Luckily we also have a swamp cooler (evaporative cooler) which should be able to keep the house to around 80.  With fans I am hopeful for a good nights sleep.

The other day I went to the grocery store.  As I was leaving I notice a man crossing the parking lot (he’d come from the little shop at the gas station) and he was carrying a bottle of juice to drink.  Now I thought it was strange that he’d go to the gas station shop and not the grocery store where things are less expensive, but oh well.  We all do things a little differently – right?  Well imagine my surprise when I saw him join his friend, mount a horse and ride off into the housing development!

  1. I think afternoon naps should be compulsory Martie – I’m sure the world would be a better place if we all re-charged more often!

    Too bad about your Air Con. I hope they get back to you soon. Stay cool!

    Love your bizarre horse riding, juice drinking man!
