Functioning in the Heat

I feel slightly better today but my whole body hurts.  I didn’t really do much yesterday.  I did get some chores done.  I got as much done as I could so that I only have one big one today and that is to mow the backyard.  Temperatures are supposed to soar today with storms tonight.  I want to keep up on the lawn as best I can this year.

I’ve kept the AC on all night to try to combat the heat that is coming today for the dogs.  Stella has already gone out and sprawled on the deck.  Essie and Moose are still inside.  I have gotten in the habit of watering the plants outside at night.  The constant sun dries out the dirt quickly.  By the time evening rolls around everyone looks a little droopy.

I did start reading a new book yesterday.  I finished Stephen King’s On Writing again so since Chris recently got it to round out the Terry Pratchett collection (I think we have just about all of the Disc World books in actual book form, I know Chris has them all in digital copy).  So I have started reading Guards, Guards which is the first book in the Watch series.  I always enjoy Pratchett because his satire is so well done and the stories are so fun.  We introduced Mom to him a few years ago (I don’t remember which book we loaned her) and now she has all the books as well.

I see that Stella has come in and stretched out in front of the AC, belly first.  I think that will be happening a lot today for all of us.  I still need to download all the pictures on to this laptop from my camera.  It will make it so much easier to share on here than doing the transfer to the phone and back.  I am supposed to be getting my Nikon D3500 For Dummies today so hopefully that will get me moving.  I want to learn about all the different tools I have in my kit (there are filters I have as well as other lenses that I honestly have no idea how to use… I can’t get them to fit on the camera and there were no instructions with the kit sooooo).

All three dogs are now outside.  I think I will follow their lead.  Let me just download a few photos from yesterday and the day before (I got a fun action shot of Stella).  Poop.  The camera battery is too low.  So I guess I will share some older pictures and charge the camera battery.  Have a great day and thanks for reading!  Stay safe!
