Well, I’m just going to have to stop promising “a trip from the past”. We ended up going over to Matt and Jackie’s early yesterday morning. While we were there, I decided that heat or no heat the lawn had to get mowed. Boy, I can tell you that the heat was stifling. It was in the high eighties, which is a lot cooler than it has been, but the humidity was extremely high. That combination wears a sole out in a hurry.
Therefore, I would just do a small section and then come inside for a while to cool down. I got the front yard and along both sides of the house done leaving the backyard for another day (that’s about 30% of the lawn mowed). I was surprised that I remembered how to run a lawnmower. Judy “stood inside” doing the housework; she did the dishes, did some laundry, vacuumed, and played Nanny. It was a productive day, to say the least.
Although it was about 5 to 10 degrees cooler yesterday; the humidity level was so bad that whenever you went outside from an air conditioned room your glasses would steam up. It was another one of those days where you felt like you were wearing the weather – today is supposed to be the same only a little warmer. Oh boy, just what we need, more heat with that humidity but, I’m still saying it is a whole lot better than the cold we suffered through last winter. Our bones just don’t ache – well, ache as much as they do in the cold weather, anyhow.
Today is going to be pretty much the same routine. Jackie is hanging in there, literally as well as figuratively. We’re hoping that baby Radek will make his appearance pretty soon as this pregnancy is wearing his mom out. Please pray for Jackie, she not in any danger medically but, at this point, it is both physically and mentally stressful.
We’re so glad that we have a lifestyle with the mobility that allows us to be where we are needed, when we are needed - It has been good being here. And, it will be awfully hard to pull up stakes leaving the two little munchkins behind when it is time to move on. We enjoy seeing their smiling little faces each and every day but, go we must. We have three more smiling little faces waiting to see Grandma and Grandpa in New Hampshire plus a gathering with friends in Maine and a road trip with our oldest grand daughter in Vermont awaiting us.
Until next time . . . . .
