Up late, Mac let me sleep in, he got up at 7:30. Have I mentioned how HUMID it is here? About a 1,000 times probably. Morning walk was a struggle so we turned the air conditioning on at 9:30, that's almost unheard of for us. Turned it off for awhile now that the house is bearable. Got the electric bill, bad, but bearable, Miss Kitty agreed to pay her share of it.
Today's jobs were laundry and mopping. I don't understand why we have so much laundry, we wear the bare minimum of clothing, yet the hamper over flows. In the past I've accused the cat of cross-dressing and adding to the load---she swears it's not true. Well someone's wearing them. The clothes are going in the dryer, something I hate to do, I actually enjoy hanging out clothes, but the air is so full of moisture that they'd never dry. So dryer it is.
Then after breakfast it was floor mopping time. I have an electric mop that steam cleans the floor and boy they needed it. So for a brief moment the tile floors are clean.
Following on with my today is posts, today is National Book Lover's Day and I'm definitely a book lover. Always read at least 3 books at a time. Right now I'm reading:
The Jakarta Pandemic by Stephen Konkoly. It's a bit of a train wreck and I won't be recommending it to anyone, just want to get through it. I have The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan waiting for me, it's a library e-book and I need to get started on it.
I'm also reading Blue Monday by Nicci French. I usually like her/their books (they're a husband/wife writing team), but I'm having trouble with this one. I'm tired of "damaged" psychologists/psychiatrists. This is the first of their Frieda Klein books and unless it picks up I won't be going on with them.
I'm still working my way through Skippy Dies by Paul Murray, teenage boys are beyond my ken, but I'm enjoying the story anyway. Can't say I'm finding some of the male teachers in the book much more grown up than the boys.
Well, wherever you are find a good book to lose yourself in today.
