Higher and Higher

When you're hot, you're hot!  As each day passes our temperatures climb.  Lately we've been reaching the upper 90's with the nights in the 70's.  During the day the humidity drops and by afternoon we're enjoying fells like temperatures of 100+.  So we don't go outside unless we have too.

Jim has been getting up at 0700 so he can get his chores done outside before noon.  The pool needs tidying everyday what with debris from the trees (wind blows almost constantly.  And the past few days he's been pressure washing the Club House so it can be painted.

The crew that keeps up the grounds were busy the first week of June cutting and trimming all of the bushes.  Don't worry, they'll be back and looking gorgeous by the time the winter season starts!

Upper left is our rig in the 100's.  


These pictures were taken on the 8th of June.  As you can see it's looking pretty bare.  Already I've seen new growth around the resort

After Jim does his morning work he comes home and showers.  Sometimes he naps as he's lying on the bed cooling off.  Sometimes we have our midday meal together before he naps (not good for the waistline!).

I read, make cards, snooze during this time.  When he's gone in the morning I'm usually busy with housework, meal prep, bathing and trimming Boo.  I even squeeze in craft time.

Netflix is our choice for afternoon viewing.  We like England's BBC TV shows and we're enjoying some dramas, comedies and a show Grand Designs (I think) about building or rebuilding grand houses. Fascinating!

Let's see, In the past couple weeks we've mostly stayed at home.  Venturing out only for groceries.  One day we headed to the mall so I could get a haircut and we both got some steps in.  One grocery run found us at Costco and we walked all over that cool building.  I walked all over Barnes and Nobles while Jim reads magazines and that day I managed to get more steps than him.

Yesterday we went out to lunch.  Decided on Chili's because we had a gift card.  About the only good thing I can say about Chili's is they have good margarita's and cold draft beer.  Why is everything they cook so greasy?

New Phone, Different (old) Laptop

Awhile back I got a new phone, Samsung Galaxy S7.  It has taken me several weeks of thinking (I'm slow) of how to import pictures from my phone onto this older, former Asus laptop.  I think I know how to upload pictures from my cameras but I'll have to purchase a doohickey to do it.


My newer laptop, Dell I think, has stopped working.  For awhile it was troublesome...taking two or three tries to even start it.  We'd reboot and finally it would work.  Couple times we'd took the battery out and then it would work.  Now nothing works....by we, I mean Jim of course, he's my go to tech guy!  Love you honey.

For the time being we're remaining in the valley.  The reasons are personal but not medical.  We're still at Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort.  Not much going on here and we've only a few guests.

These pictures aren't the best but at least I know how to share them!

Baby possum found in our water  collection bucket.  Jim dumped him out and he played possum while we waited for signs of life.  About a half hour later he was gone.
