I be bad, I haven't posted all week, not from lack of ideas, more like a lack of energy.
Monday was spent mowing our lawn, in 96º heat. I don't want to say it fried my brain, but it didn't help.
Tuesday we finally made it to the theatre to see Jurassic World and we really enjoyed it. Not because of the storyline, rather predictable, not the stars, didn't recognize anyone although the lead guy was ok, definitely not because of the pathos they kept trying to interject. No, no, no, it was the dinos of course, particularly the raptors and their part in the movie. So if you go to see it don't look for a great story, character development or any other such mundane thing, go for the dinos.
Ah, then Wednesday I had to get caught up on a class that I'm taking, "England in the Time of Richard III". I am a Richardian and have always had an interest in the Plantagenet Kings so I was really looking forward to the class. It's been a little slow going this first week and many of the discussions seem to be made up of how many people like Phillippa Gregory, who had written numerous fiction books about this period, and ewwww, wasn't battle savage--who knew. So I'm a little disappointed so far, about the only thing I've learned, and I actually think I knew it already, just forgot it, is that you can date peat and that's how they finally found the bog where the Battle of Bosworth took place.
Yesterday evening we had a huge storm and there are branches and parts of trees down all over our neighborhood. We were lucky, bits and pieces of branches on the lawn, but not much else. Our electricity was out for nearly 2 hours, but finally came back on as we were getting ready to jump in the pool to cool off. Took a bit to clean the pool today, lots of leaves and leaf debris.
So that was my week. No rain today or at least not so far.
