10:45am
Done outside for the day. It is just too many days of hot for me. Walked Nikky to the mailbox and got a nice surprise. Photo of my friend, Darla's, grandson Zachary. So cute. Then got a load of laundry hung. And, trimmed a few Ming tree branches that I could reach from the step-stool. Really need to get the ladder out and trim the higher branches that are laying on the roof edge. Project for another day ...
Also, vacuumed the dryer vents and doves' room.
Need to rest & cool off before I tackle anything else today. 

11:30am
Just got an appointment scheduled for furnace maintenance for next month.
Tried calling the local VFW to see about retiring our old flag, but there was no answer. May have to drive by the post tomorrow. 
 
Must find some lunch & then bring in the laundry.
 
Need to dig out some old picture frames & frame a few pictures I want to hang up.
 
Yet another Spare the Air day! The bus lines are going to go broke since they are free to ride on these days!
 
1pm
Lunch was yummy. Slow-fried eggs with homemade salsa.
Boiled a dozen eggs, so need to get them shelled now.
Also, have to plant some garlic that decided to sprout in the fridge. And, going to experiment with the root end of an onion & see if it grows in some water. Will plant if it does. I think I'll put it in my bedroom window as it gets the best light and Ezra won't be able to get to it.


3:30pm
Got the peppers ready for dinner. I had saved 4 of the peppers that Daisy had given us last week. Sitting on the counter they have turned completely red. They are now stuffed with Cheddar & cream cheese & wrapped in bacon. Ready to cook tonight.
