It is even hotter today and I had to turn on the cooler earlier in the day. The wonderful "Delta Breeze" is not coming up the delta due to weather patterns out in the Pacific, so the nights aren't as cool and the day gets warm pretty quick. I don't intend to go anywhere today and I'm content to stay home.
I planned to do a little decluttering starting in the kitchen but didn't accomplish a whole lot. I seemed to spend a lot of time cleaning countertops, which still have traces of sticky grease from the former occupants' love of fried foods. The countertops drive me crazy but that isn't at the top of my prioritized list. For the past few years I thought about replacing them, but ended up choosing to spend time and money traveling to the east and back. This year the money is going to the dentist.
Speaking of the dentist I have an appointment for cleaning tomorrow and then I hope I'm finished for a while.
I made chicken vegetable soup a couple of days ago and just had a bowl for my dinner. It is really tasty (although I think I prefer beef to chicken), but that one bowl has me feeling too full. I've noticed that by dinner time I am not hungry, can't eat very much, and then feel stuffed. I'm just thankful I enjoy my breakfast so much.
The wildfires in southern CA are frightening, and I hope my blog readers from that area can stay safe. I think fires will be a problem for the entire west this summer. The climate has definitely been weird the past few years.
