It will probably start to rain sometime tonight, and continue through much of tomorrow morning. Today was mild enough that, though I didn't open the windows, I left the back door open for a couple of hours. It was warmer outside than in the unheated back room. It's not too cold yet tonight, as the clouds have returned and are holding in some of the day's warmth, and the frogs are croaking again. They might croak every night this week, as the nights won't be getting excessively cold again until next Tuesday. Next week could be rainy again, too, which would be nice. The longer I can put of watering the yard the better.

Well, carp, I did it again. Writing an entry, got distracted, did something else, forgot, fell asleep, woke up and realized the entry wasn't finished and hadn't been posted, but can't remember what I was going to say because I'm only semi-awake. Maybe I can get back to sleep and... what? I don't know. Goodnight, anyway.

Still Dull

The dryer has been opened up and its innards cleaned out. There was a lot of old lint that had escaped the filter and lodged itself in various places, though I don't think that is what caused the malfunction that destroyed my sock the other day. Still I'm going to try using it, but I'll be keeping an eye on it whenever I do, just in case it decides to burst into flames. I'd still like to get it replaced.

The cooling trend is continuing, though it is gradual. There is rain predicted for the weekend, but only showers by Sunday afternoon, so that's when the shopping trip is scheduled. There was rain last night, but the clouds had thinned by the time I woke up and there was sunshine in which the feral cats sunned themselves. But the dryer took up most of the afternoon, so I didn't join them. I went out to listen to the frogs for a while this evening. Now I'm going to turn on the television and let it put me to sleep. It's gotten very good at that.
