Gosh, what a night! It was so hot and sticky and there was no sleeping for me. There has been a nasty odor in my place for a couple of days now, and I have been looking high and low for the source. Well, DUH! It seems that I had forgotten to take out the filters in the AC and clean them. So at 3:45 this morning I was up taking out the filters and washing them. Then of course, I had to try to clean out anything that might be inside behind the filters.
Once that was done, I dug through my screwdrivers to find the right one to take apart the fan in my bedroom. Once the fan was all apart ( God bless me with all those teeny weeny screws!), I scrubbed it all nice and shiny and put it all back together again. By now, I had worked up an appetite, so Tootsie and I each had a bowl of cereal and then went back to bed.
Today, the temperature has gone down a bit, thank goodness! I can actually walk out the door without the heat smacking me in the face. We might even get a few thunder showers. Gosh, I hope so! This afternoon, I get to cook the first summer squash from our garden. Oh yum!! Aside from mashed potatoes, this has to be my favorite veggie. I love most all of them, but we do tend to have favorites.
Right next to the shed, there is a large beautiful flowering bush. It is has been there for many years, even though different folks have tried to get rid of it. I keep coming to its' rescue. I don't know it's name, but I think maybe my friend, Kyra, might be able to help with that. The bush is at least six feet tall, and the florets are covered with teeny white blossoms. I have a photo of it, plus a close up. Let me know what it is.
Now I have some laundry to do, and the carpet really does want to meet up with the vacuum. After lunch, maybe I can catch a short nap before I head off to work. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
