At least I hope it's the last. Since we have the entire summer to go through, I think we are likely to have more triple digit days, but I hope not many and not often. I only take Rocky out first thing in the morning and it doesn't cool off until after dark. Also, he won't even go out into the back yard while it's so hot. We have some rain predicted in the next few days, including thunderstorms. I hope the rain doesn't pelt down and harm my garden plants which are growing nicely with the high temperatures. A nice soft rain would really be good for them!
It sounds as if some areas want to lift the lockdown, which I hope isn't premature. I dislike staying isolated as much as anyone, but I will do it willingly until officials (that I trust) tell me it is safe to relax and get back to a more normal life. "That I trust" is key here - I don't trust many officials since they are pressured by the stagnant economy to entice people to get out and spend some money. Over 100,000 people have died from the virus (probably a lot more), and to tell you the truth, I think lives are more important than a thriving economy right now. But what do I know.
The TV continues to perplex me. I can usually find my way to the science or history channels, which is what I prefer to watch. Since the TV is across the room (actually not very far) I can't read what is on the screen so I have to walk over to see it. And the remote is small with faint (to me) lettering, so I have to get it into the light to be able to read it. I ask myself if it is really worth it and the answer is definitely "NO", but it makes my children happy that I have a TV. They tell me to watch comedies and happy movies - I have never watched those kinds of shows (not since Johnny Carson left the air), but prefer documentaries and information. Actually, I'd rather read a book but that is becoming difficult as well. Whoever said "getting old isn't for sissies" sure got that right!
I'm still walking a mile a day on my treadmill, and am pretty proud of myself for hanging in there. I should up the mileage, but I'm afraid I would then find excuses to skip a day here and there, so I'd be better off sticking to what I will do faithfully each day.
I almost forgot to mention that today is my "baby boy's" second birthday! Happy birthday Rocky!
