The dog days continue, but the dog isn't panting as much. It's more like a normal summer now, with hot days but much cooler nights during which the house can become pleasant. Early this morning I woke up and actually had to put a blanket over myself because I felt chilly for the first time in weeks. I'll probably need the fan on all night tonight, but the air conditioner gets to rest. |
I'm accumulating another sleep deficit, and wondering when it will get paid back. It would be very inconvenient to pay it back on a Sunday when doing so would interfere with my shopping. I also dislike paying it back on a day or night when there's a movie I want to see. Over the last few months I've missed chunks of several movies because I couldn't keep my eyes open. It's not so bad if it's a movie I've seen before, but distressing when it's new to me and I don't find out what happened to whoever. Then I have to keep watching for that movie to come on again so I can see the ending.
There's some pesto needing to be eaten before it goes bad, but I don't think I'll be able to use it all. I'd actually never had pesto before I bought this batch a couple of weeks ago, and it's less digestible than I'd hoped. I'm thinking of having it with fresh tomatoes, as fresh tomatoes greatly diminish the indigestion I get from sauces with cooked tomato in them, so I'm hoping they will have the same magical effect on garlic and basil. I probably won't buy pesto again, though. I find that I much prefer a nice marinara.
Eleven o'clock. I must go do things that need doing before my brain turns into pumpkin at midnight.
