It is hotter than a firecracker today. The heat index a while ago was 106. The heat index reading for tonight remains at 98 – 103. The dew point is in the upper 70s. Of course we are under a heat advisory. I ventured out this morning for a little while but that was it. I did stick my head out the door to get my mail this afternoon.
Speaking of getting your mail in a mailbox, that is something new for me. My husband and I had a post office box always. It just was a handy thing to have as we both worked full time jobs and we could always pick up the mail at our convenience. Now I know the approximate time my mail will be here. My regular carrier is a lady that seems to walk 90 miles an hour. She is here at 1:48 PM each day give or take 5 minutes one way or another When a substitute person delivers it has been as late as 5:30 PM. I have decided that I like my mail delivered to my door. Now the postal service is wanting to eliminate Saturday mail service. Hey, please don’t take away Saturday delivery, I like it!
I am contemplating the need to clean this place again. Seems I am too busy running around to spend much time doing that. I need to purchase a new sweeper as mine will not stay upright since I used it the last time. It actually fell down on my foot which was not a very nice thing to do and it elicited a few not so nice words from my mouth. Now I have to decide where to go to purchase a new sweeper. If I were closer to Sam’s I would go there. As it is, I am thinking of closing my account there because it is located in Peoria and I don’t want to fight the traffic there. So I have K Mart, Walmart, Bergners or Sears to choose from. But not for the next few days as it is going to be very hot for the next few days.
I hope you all are sitting in front of the AC enjoying a nice tall cool one. Stay safe and be happy!!
