Couple of semi-trailers up in the next block collecting crunched bits of house. Also, city crew that wants to repave that sidewalk . . .

I wonder what percentage of the people yammering about military personnel matters have ever, at any time, served in any branch of the military.  Not saying that is a prerequisite for having an opinion, just idle curiosity.

Got New Books aquired... my Precious.

Checked on the sister creature and she is convinced that taking the cough syrup will slow her healing process because she needs to cough up everything in her lungs, even if it might be her liver or pancreas. I would argue with her about this, but, I would have better luck convincing a wall or a cat that I have value.

I got things to do today here in the house. I should do them.

Feel free to Patreonize me....

House up at the end of the next block has been crunched into its cellar, but not yet hauled away in shreds. More homeless rats.

Beautiful September day

Air temperature 51 F this morning, dew point the same, calm, with patchy fog. If we just skip ahead to match the weather with the date, we'll be fine.

Yesterday, instead of lounging about the house in my jammies, I had to get dressed to take the sister creature to the ER .. she has a viral chest infection.

I got home right before ten, so I got to watch Midnight TX on tv.

Today, New Book Tuesday, and I am already tired. But, things to do...

Pitcher plants blooming. Also at least three kinds of bog orchids, and little tiny sundews.

Probable raccoon corpse across from the golf course. Only probable, being in the weeds on the far side of a US highway.

Nothing particular in the floral department. If you want to gather lupine seeds, the heads are dry now.

Got out on the bike, usual weekday route. No sign of the cemetery heron.

15.26 miles, 1:13:12

Between the heat and having things to do, and getting home late... the internets has been ignored.

Reynaud's is a very fussy thing, I like to refer to it as "Goldilocks Disease" because its so damn limiting. Not too hot, not too cold.. which leaves such a narrow window of comfort. With the temps here in the 80s or higher, I just cant function very well. Or its just slow and sweaty... and I dont sweat.

Friday I got errands run, and things collected. But it was late when I got home,and barely got stuff in the fridge.

Saturday, the sister creature and I picked up the Kidlet for her belated birthday trip to Powells and dinner of her choice. We had great parking karma.. in the shade even. Kidlet got some graphic novels, more Percy Jackson, Amulet, Firewings, and I tossed in a couple of books, a Pinkwater... we got a thing on the upcoming solar event with glasses... and of course, we got her book shopping done, and we did a bit for ourselves, I found more books in series for our Wicked Evil Stepmom, and we then went to dinner at Saylors. I got a great parking spot there too, without having to circle the parkinglot. My prime rib had more fat on it than I cared for, but it was still a good meal. We were to take the Kidlet to her Uncle's house in Canby, her parents were off being solo adults. We had to stop at the sisters apt on the way there, she had to use the bathroom ... lets just say, we were delayed, and when it was time to leave, due to a misscommunication between the sister and myself, she got locked out of her place. I didnt have the spare keys with me, but we would deal with it later.

Neither one of us had the address in Canby, but the Kidlet kinda remembered how to get there, and we did. I recognized the nicely groomed shrubberies first. It was her Aunt's birthday, so we hung out there until Eldest Nephew and his wife showed up. Transferred over her book loot and we went to my place where I got the spare keys and then took the sister home to her apt where i let her in.

Sunday, got up before I was completely rested, made dip for the family party, put the sprinkler on in the garden and did some serious hand watering out front.. still have a lot to do though. Picked the sister up and we went to Brothers house for our Wicked Evil Stepmom's 80th birthday party. It was just immediate family. We had a nice time visiting, telling stories, bbq dinner, and then cards presents mini bundt cakes and more. I will give a little grumble that my sister in law is hogging all the time with our stepmom while she is down here, but, I can give her that. I can always drive up to Longview to see her and do stuff. So, I wont see her before they take her back to Longview tomorrow.

Today, dont know, its going to be 90. Ick. Slept in late and really dont feel like doing squat. My sister in law made a suggestion where to find someone to do my little paver patio out front, but I am thinking that can wait for a cooler day.

Go ahead and hate people who think differently than you. Trump gives you permission.

The banging and booming down the street makes me hope that the demolition crew has salvaged those granite foundation slabs for use elsewhere. Gone now.
