won’t be back until tomorrow. Then for the next several days we are under a heat advisory. Summer is returning with a vengeance. This means more days of non stop AC running.
I was talking to my next door neighbor a couple of days ago. I am on one side of her and a couple that is several years older (can you believe it?) than me is on the other side. Then directly across (catty corner) from me is a middle aged lady that lives alone. To get back to my story, my next door neighbor said that she received a letter with her Ameren (utility) bill last month. It stated that all 3 of her neighbors were conserving electricity while it appeared she was not. I asked her what she kept her AC on and she told me 70 – 72 degrees. I told her I kept mine on 80 degrees. She pointed out to me that she and her husband liked to stay cool and I pointed out to her that her 3 neighbors were all living on a fixed income. If they can afford it, I say more power to them.
The birds in the nest are barn swallows. They were in a combative move as I was trying to do laundry today. Swooping in and out at me like I was out to get them, so I got a very good look at them.
My daughter and I went to the opening day of the Big R here in town today. I was used to the store because there is one a few miles from my old home that Jim and I liked to go to. This store is quite a lot larger.
I ate my first tomato for supper last night wit h bacon and mayo on wheat bread. It was delicious!
Stay cool, stay safe and be happy!
