    Unsettled weather here. Out of the blue. Mr x said there was a brief rain shower before I got up. Happened again a while ago. Now weather app showing light showers.

    I'm waiting for Amazon package. Good price on Carnation instant breakfast. I can mix it with my slim fast. Also I'm vac. And supposed to be working on that watch.

    Vid girl said she likes hearing what I'm up to because she has no energy recovering from the virus. She said she feels sense of accomplishment from me getting stuff done! That's why I like to read what others are up to.

    Wearing another white halter. I think I had about 7 of them. They are the coolest. Don't member where I got them. Maybe from a catalog? The zipper in front is a bad idea, tho. Bunches up.

    I dumped a white and the lime halter. Found the rest of my stash. One last wear. We're going thru heat wave so it's perfect.

    Today I started scanning in earnest. My retro papers. Scan then dump original. It feels so freeing. And I still possess the image. And the old mildewed paper... Gone!

    Mr x noticed my new shorts. Sharp peepers. It's a whitish color. I have a bunch of white shorts. Yet he knew this was different.

    We were out walking by 7:45 a.m. That did the trick. Back before the heat and high uv.

    Got to work on Mr xs watch. I got battery changed easily, but I'm having a heck of a time snapping back on. Got some tricks to try. This is taking me away from my desky.

    My doc keeps calling and leaving messages to come take lab tests. I know my ch is under control. I'm feeling fine. They are pests.

    I'm dumping a white halter top. The zipper doesn't look good. It bunches up. And, as always, I did a number. Have a few white ones, a lime and a red one. I may dump the lot. Will wear it one last time.

    You shouldn't wear ill fitting clothes. Yet I have been. I like the coolness of a halter top. Don't like putting it on. I step into it, like a sports bra. I have to continue sorting this house.

    Mr x has become the guy that wears clothes to shreds. Where there are holes. It's some ocd quirk. Bro has it too. I don't want it. It's hard for me to dump clothes. But I'm getting better. By reading the jack reacher books. He owns no clothes except the clothes on his back. Every 3-9 days! he buys new cheap clothes and dumps the old ones.

    I have to dig thru a bin to find a pic. I call it binster diving. My 5th grade class pic. I think folks with kids are different from ones without. I don't have a kid to focus on or their future. So I meditate on my past. Looking at my toddler pics. That was my best time. Thru 2nd grade. I'm obsessed with looking how my life was then. The birthday parties. I didn't have to drive. Had no responsibilities. We were always visiting relatives.

    Listening to Judy Garland on jazz station. Was perusing ND and getting irritated. More thievery, rudeness. I was looking at Nevada Zillow houses. Some quite cheap. But how is the hood? I don't need to see folks anymore. Restaurants seem to be out. We'd need to be near a grocery store, that's all. Maybe post office. I would want to be able to walk the hood.

    We scooted today. Sun has shifted and I had terrible glare. Will have to search out better routes. Then I slogged a bit in back. It's been a lovely exercise day. I wore pink shorts and violet running top. I do love my exercise clothes.

    Last nite for some reason I googled this neighbor boy that lived across the st from me in 5th grade. He died! He had owned a helicopter company and was an instructor. The helicopter crashed. Well, I was shocked. I had never even spoken to him, I don't think. He was couple years older. He had a bro about a year younger.

    Bro said the younger bro was teasing him once to show off. He grabbed bro's backpack and was going to throw it up in a tree. He said suddenly I was there and was shoving the bully around and yelling. He said after that the boy never bothered him.

    I find that hilarious. I had remembered doing that but didn't member who the boy was. The boy later became a cop. Now he's a financial planner. I wonder what he would think of me now. He's registered on the HS site. He'd be able to see all my pics. Bro and I were always together and I'm 2 years older. And bro was small then. I was obliged to stick up for him.

    Been awhile. Guess I've been busy. I have some outstanding ems to return. Let's see. It was Mr xs bday other day. He's been enjoying the snack box. Vid girl got the virus. She felt really bad, but a day later says she's 90% better. She has the vac.

    I found that paper keepsake I was looking for. When fooling with my album pics, I found it tucked into one. Now my fuchsia sunglasses are missing.

    My roller skate injury persists. It's been 6 mos. At first it hurt when I'd get down in certain positions. Like sitting on floor to remove shoes. Or even sitting up in bed. Now it barks loudly if I sit down on floor to rearrange shelves. I have to move my leg a certain way not to get a cramp. I wonder if it's getting better. Or worse. 6 mos seems plenty to recover from a slight fall. I've taken tons of salt baths. It doesn't bother my walking or slogging luckily.

    I had an Amazon credit and bought a season of The Avengers with Diana Rigg. I have less than 2 mos of my Amazon membership remaining.

    Almost got two more shorts but the reviews weren't good. I've got stuff in my cart, tho. Labor day sale coming up.

    We've been walking. I can now make it out by 7:45 a.m. to beat the heat. I'm scanning stuff slowly and dumping the original.

    So that's all the news that's fit to print. I was looking at a Nevada map. Maybe that or Utah I'd consider moving to. I looked up the past Airbnb places we stayed in 2018 and 2019. Only one is still active. The first place we stayed was sold and owner moved to Hawaii.

    It was too sunny to wear new transition sunglasses. Reviews had said they don't darken much. So i wore these white ones I picked up on the st. They were fab. Mr x said Paris Hilton wears white framed ones so I guess I'm super fashionable. Tho I'm not into fashion. Especially designer stuff.

    I am getting interested in more sunglasses which is not good. Unless I toss an old pair for each new one I buy. I don't want to be a hoarder. But it is fun to have different shades to go with diff circumstances.

    I wore my new mauve shorts that I got in M. I had gotten one in L and it was big. This is a tad small.

    It actually rained for a short while today. I thought I was hallucinating when I first heard it. It was great. Dampened things a bit. There's a big fire on Calif/Oregon border. Hope they got some rain too.

    My Amazon stuff due in today. Mr xs chicken head tee. Then I got a photochromic sunglass and Dr Bonners almond liquid soap.

    Today I sorted thru some pics. Scanned my class pics from K-8. Before, I didn't know about a scan app so just took a camera pic on the rug. That was cute.

    Been busy, as usual. I found the vac brush. It was next to the fridge on the floor. Very strange. I looked Everywhere for that thing. In every room, under everything. And it's in plain sight? Now I'm looking for this old paper. My scan doesn't look good so I want to do it again. Put it under a plastic cover to flatten it out. The creases made shadows I can't Photoshop out.

    Mr x having a battle with that rat that's eating his tomatoes. It's avoiding the reg traps. So he bought another kind. He was jubilant he had caught it today but it was a false alarm.

    I renewed my driver's license. My Redmi phone can't connect to my printer, so far. My knee went out a day. I had been slogging in back yard. It didn't like the tight turns.

    I brought out this rubber chicken to make Mr x laugh. He loved it. He's sleeping with it now. He has bonded with a hard, plastic toy. His bday is next mo. I just ordered a tee with the same chicken head on it. The mouth is wide open like he was terribly frightened.

    Going to set up my SD card camera. I'm getting ready to slog up this hilly route and want Mr x to take some shots of me.

    Well, it's a desky day so I have to jump back in the fray.

    I have 6 white shorts now. That's plenty. Today I wore my new gray camo one. Very nice. Like a swirled gray pattern. Topped it with a pale pink top and a pink scrunchie.

    We walked the hilly streets. Kind of hot so I went leisurely. Plus my rum tum acting up. But my Prilosec is here.

amazing as it sounds, i passed the dmv vision test. i was quite apprehensive in days leading up to it. every nite religiously doing the eye exercises. straining, straining to see, imagine, the dinky little letters. when it came time to test, i didnt even falter! i guess i could see the shapes good enough to recognize. mr x came with me. we had a 2.5 hour wait. he started grumbling part way thru the wait.

other day we were at macs. tried their new ice mocha. yum!

then yesterday hung out with bro for 5.5 hrs. he had these dumb rebate cards to redeem and he didnt need anything. so we went to walgreens, 2 cvs, and a tjs. i caught up on my shopping. we hit a macs and i tried the caramel macchiato. even better than the mocha. we got along very well. we had been estranged a long time. but now i suppose i will eventually move closer to him. he lives in san jose. not a place id like to be. maybe i can move nearby on the coast. would like some fog weather.

so i passed my big hurdle. can relax now and get back to normal. have to hire a drywall guy.

just finished a great read. about uber rich ladies and the scam perpetrated against them. a good frothy read. hey, its fall i believe! got bottle of pumpkin spice latte by starbucks. so curious to taste it.

welcome to fall! time to bring out the sweaters.

finally got back here. we had a plumbing event. on labor day mr x noticed water running off front lawn. a water main had broke. a small 2" gush was gushing out. mr x called water company who turned off water. then i called our go to plumber. a solution was to replace pipe to house. however id been wanting to replace the pipes one day. we had no hot water at bathroom sink and cold faucet was dribbling out. i knew it was a matter of time. then. we didnt have hot or warm water in washer. only cold. thats why my wash would take hours. so i decided to kill all birds with one stone. i replaced all pipes with copper. it took a total of 5 days. we had no water for 3 days. first day we used wipey dypes. 2nd day mr x warmed water jugs in sun and we bathed with a gallon of water. i helped mr x wash his hair on back lawn. i viewed the experience like camping. its doable, but im not keen on it. 3 guys were here. all spoke spanish. so i decided to learn spanish on phone app. itd be nice to be able to converse with them.

im doing eye exercises. plan on taking vision test next week. its better not doing close work, which ive done my whole life. reading way too much. better to look at scenery. i think ill continue the eye exercises.

we had really hot temps, then other day first rain of the year! it began with a thousand lightening strikes. scary, and weird for this area. it started brush fire couple towns over. also monsciour ugly was caught on film sliding his grotesquely ugly body under a residents fence. # the outrage

id been watching lovely old films, then the plumbing debacle. i have to bring in a drywall guy to patch up the holes the plumber left. already found my guy thru yelp.

back to school time, but kids already back. when did that start? and no telethon with jerry lewis. he really wanted to hit 100.

its been super hot here. sf broke record. something like 106. we were 107. i was taking 3 showers a day. would sit outside at nite for air, started watching my dvd player. watched, british intelligence, with boris karloff. such an intimidating man. it was a ww1 flick in blk/wh. got bit by mosquitos. its the gift that keeps on giving. next nite sprayed off on.

got couple more weeks for eye exercises then have to take dmv vision test. strangely enough, the pinhole glasses im using seem to help. before i couldnt see without glasses without closing an eye. now im able to read my phone without glasses. of course, i return to glasses asap.

the smoke from oregon and calif fires drifted down here. could smell it slightly. today its a strange totally overcast day, but warm.

your friendly, pink weather girl.

hi izzy! i know what you mean. its fun to read new blogs. kind of like toothpaste. if nothing to read, ill read the tube. tube tops. i thought those were the dumbest things. then my wing went out once and i couldnt finagle a bra. so had to get the tubes. so easy to put on. i have them in colors, of course. fuchsia, lime, orange.

im writing on lappy, my laptop. too onerous to text on my phone.

its been a long, hot summer. i look forward to fall temps when i can don my beloved denim jackets.

izzy, that was interesting telling of what a nuclear stress test is. what is the nuclear part? the dye? it sounds so high tech. nuclear. do you glow now:)

i need to clean my fans. some arent openable. need some kind of thin bristle brush.

a few cities over madame ugly and her spawn were spotted. search partys are out since they came down where schools are. i noticed their looks didnt improve over the summer.

did i mention mr x found a dead rat on back lawn. thankfully he disposed of it. he said it was 17" with tail. # ick

see you in september!

my newest project is trying to buy glasses ol.

last nights movie was a doris day musical. she can really dance. and tap. that is an odd dance move. the guy was doing it on a staircase. itd be kind of neat to suddenly break into a tap dance.

then i started a cary grant and rosallnd russell movie.

i made up 5 packs of indonesian ramen. made oodles of noodles. heard ramen is hot commodity in prisons. ramen wth an egg on top. # breakfast is served

i should try on my cargo shorts again. itll probably be another year till i can wear them. i sure love the pockets. i used to be a tomboy back in my tomcat days. but i grew out of it. i get more favorable responses when i dress ladylike.

We had to replace the water pipe to our house, years ago, when we had our own house. BF and a friend did the work.
A root from a tree had punctured the pipe...so the tree was felled.
The lawn never recovered from the line that had to be dug into it to access the pipe.

I bet its nice to have working water again!

OMG, the smoke from the fires drifted into Colorado so thick that it allowed one to look directly at the sun without seeing spots when looking away!
We could barely make out the shapes of the mountains through the heavy smoke.
When the sun had set and the moon had risen, the moon looked much like the sun had looked...only the sky was dark!
There was also a fire near Steamboat Springs, Colorado that grew from 2 acres to 419 acres in just a few hours...that also contributed to our smoky air.
The elderly and people with health issues are being advised to stay indoors with the doors and windows closed.
Its really kinda scary to see that much smoke in the air!

I'm glad to hear that the eye exercises and the pinhole glasses are working for you! ...I should try something like that since my aging eyes are failing fast...but I am lazy lately...maybe at another time.
