Monday - Hot. Up around 103 I think, but
A brilliant silvery moon in the evening. I would think that indicates
a clear sky, as compared to the red or orange moons, but so few stars were
visible that it was hard to tell. I went outside at 3am, but the moon
had not yet set, and the moonlight glare off of the RV structure washed out
any celestial sights.
I found my old Telrad
finder box the other day, I think the Celestron 8 has an attachment plate on
it already. I'll have to see. Not that one needs a finder for
the moon, but Jupiter and Saturn are visible I think. It will be prudent to
fill the yard's remaining dog holes before stumbling around in the dark...
This would have been Dad's 96th birthday. Hard to imagine.
I remember once telling him that we were going to throw him a huge party for
his 100th. His reply was "100 years old? Don't wish that on me!"
In the morning I went into town for the shingles booster, only to discover
that they had been trying to contact me as the injection had been
rescheduled for Wednesday. My fault, I hadn't checked my phone
Since I was in town I picked up another sun sail and ancillary hardware at
This was annoying, as usual, taking maybe twice as long as it should have
because of mislabel and unlabeled products. I bought a 10' piece of
chain, for example, and memorized the number since I didn't have my phone
and there was no pen nearby to write the number down. But that turned
out to be pointless because that number was for buying the whole
spool, 100', the price-per-foot SKU was a completely different number
and they had to have someone go do a stock check on it.
Later at home I spent a couple of hours cleaning up the yard - the dogs dug
dozens of holes, each one needed filling and packing down. I picked up the
old bones, and a bunch of other debris. Most animals won't poop near
where they eat and rest - Chihuahua's have no problem with that.
Sunday - Hot again. It was about 105F, but
only 9% humidity, so the house stayed tolerable. As in high 70s
indoors, when I would run the cooler on high.
I bundled up all the dogs and their appurtenances and brought them back to S
& R in the morning. Afterwards we did some shopping in town.
S had picked up a new bread machine at the coast, only $5 at the senior
center thrift shop for use there, so she gave it to me on return (she has
three or four already). We made a point of buying some bread flour and
gluten whilst shopping.
It was nearly noon by the time I returned home and put away groceries, and I
didn't do much for the rest of the day, just some reading. Dinner was next
door, and was delicious steak.
The new anime season on Crunchyroll is pretty bad.
