|Sweat It Out

Another day indoors, as the heat cycle nears its peak. There should be a slight respite Thursday, and Friday might even be tolerable, but next week gets worse. April lingered through much of May, and now July is invading June. But I suppose I should be thankful that at last the fire season hasn't started in California yet, so the air is sort of clear. There is already a wildfire burning in eastern Washington state. I'm sure it won't belong before we start getting them, too. |
The sultry evenings continue to be enervating, and dusk found me nodding off in the chair in the back yard, so I came in and took a nap. I don't like evening naps, but it felt essential. I did feel a bit better when I woke up a couple of hours later, though I remain a bit fuzzy-headed.
My backyard lizard (a gecko of some sort, I think) was very active today. I saw him (or her) running about, scampering up and down the retaining wall and the fence above it, almost every time I looked out. The creature must find the heat energizing. I'm glad somebody is enjoying it.
I hope to get out Friday and go to a bus-accessible store and the bank. Monday would be better timing as far as the banking goes, but it's supposed to be 101 degrees Monday. I ain't going out in that. I'd probably collapse on the street and never make it home. I'll just stay here and run up my electric bill. Summer. Central Valley. Ech.
