99°at 4:00🕓 but scheduled to get to 103° before it’s over. And today’s the coolest under next Wednesday, when it’s predicted to be 99°. Of course that could change, but I so hope it’s accurate: Wednesday 99°, Thursday 97°, Friday 96°, Saturday 94°. And fingers crossed that the downward trend continues, right down to the 80s, the low 80s, for the sweet fall weather. I was just thinking that September is equinox month. Autumnal equinox around the 21st, when the day and night is of equal length. With any luck, that will definitely signal cooler temperatures!
I was sure that Best Buy said my printer would be ready today, so I made arrangements for my granddaughter to come take me. But the email announcing its arrival didn’t come in yesterday, nor this morning. So I checked status only to find that it won’t be here until the 11th. Luckily that’s not really a problem since the new computer won’t be here until the 12th. So instead I went to Winco to do some grocery shopping. My goodness prices have gone up! 😱 Or maybe it’s just because I buy a whole lot of everything I get since I’m never sure when I will be able to get back. And then they’ve revamped their bulk section since I was last there, & they no longer have chia seeds or almond flour in bulk, which was the main reason I chose that store to go to. Either road, I spent way more money than I thought AI would.
I got my granddaughter to park in the shade so it was a trek into the store. And then I wandered all over it looking for what I needed. And the trek back out to the car. Got all three big bags & the 4 gallons of filtered water out & set them on the lawn so she could get going, then made 4 trips getting everything into the house. So I reckon I got my walking done for today. It was already 80°when I got up this morning — so hot the cats didn’t argue with me about coming into the house.
I realize this journal isn’t very exciting when mostly what I talk (whinge) about is the heat. But when it’s this hot, it’s all I can think about. Bear with me — I’ll be more interesting by the end of the month. (I hope!)
