Although there are a couple cloudy days coming up there is no rain in the long-range forecast until a week from Thursday, an that's really too far off to be considered anything like a certainty. Most of the upcoming days are going to be mild, and a few will even be warm, and I expect to see a lot of things blooming over the next couple of weeks, and maybe leaves coming out on a few of the trees. There are lots of trees in Chico, though it's nowhere near as woodsy as the ridge. One large tree across the bike trail from my back yard might provide some decent shade in the late afternoons come summer. That might help moderate the hellish valley summer. I'm not going to miss the winter cold, but I'm not looking forward to the summer heat.
Sometime this week I must go transfer money from my savings account to my checking account so I can pay the rent. I haven't figured out how to set up the online banking thing, so I go bother a teller every month. I'd have done it today if I'd been feeling better, and had woken up earlier, and could have stopped in at Raley's to see what they had for their Monday specials. But what the hell, I've got more groceries than I need anyway. I didn't even bother to go to the Outlet or TJ's today. No idea what I will do tomorrow, or what day I'll go to the bank. I just can't plan ahead anymore.
