Goodbye April. Don't Let the Door etc.

I'll never get used to the touchpad on a laptop. I must have my mouse! When Butch recovers (I'm assuming he'll recover) I'll let Gladys go back to sleep and I won't miss her. If Butch doesn't recover I'll be spending les time on the Internets, and accomplishing far less per unit of time while there. Some stuff takes forever with a touch pad.

Another thing I don't like is the foxtails. The weather this year must have been especially good for them. They are everywhere, even growing up through the golden poppies. When they are pulled up, foxtails take huge clods of dirt with them. Those are tough root systems they've got. They're way tougher than my knees, which ache from bending and squatting to uproot the nasty vegetation. Yanking them by had is the only way to protect the other plants. But oh how I'd love to just mow those vile foxtails down!

The last day of April was not warm enough to allow open windows, but tomorrow ought to be. There's a good chance that the recent storm was the last of the season. It sometimes rains in May, but nothing is headed this way for now, and the longer we go without rain the less likely it becomes that there will be any more until Autumn. I'll probably still need to run the furnace at night for the next couple of weeks, though. Smell the money burn!

  • Reset Twenty, Day Thirty-Six

    It's getting harder every day to get my brain focused after waking up. Tuesday might have been a bit worse because I didn't wake up until nearly four…

  • Reset Twenty, Day Thirty-Five

    Today will be the last day with a mere double digit high for a week. Monday was hot, but not horrifying. The horror starts Wednesday, and I'm not…
