Even at sunrise it looks HOT.
It has been a while since posting. The only excuse that I have is that I just haven’t had the energy to do anything. I’m behind on keeping up with my fellow bloggers, but I promise, I will catch up. It is tough to write about what’s going on when there’s nothing going on. The gate is very slow, so I am pretty much reading, watching movies and napping during the day. I ‘m not a couch potato, nope, I’m a recliner potato, although, I do get up to refresh my ice water quite often. I am lucky that the safety guys bring me ice when I get close to running out.
Angel is taking the heat the same way as I am. It has been over 100* all week. Today it reached 108*. I have the A/C on, but by mid afternoon it just can’t keep up, so I turn it off and turn on the fantastic fans and sit in front of a couple of other fans, just to keep the air moving. When there is shade on the east side of the coach, we move out side. As long as there is a breeze and no traffic, it’s not too bad. When the temperature starts to go back down, I will turn the A/C back on and go back inside. When I lived in Phoenix I didn’t turn on the A/C until it hit 110*. I guess I’m becoming a wimp lately. Oh well, it is what it is, I’ll deal with it.
In the morning, we were reading until Angel got to work being a Guard Dog.

See the dark spot in the middle of the picture above?
This is what she warned me about.
I am still doing the research to decide where I will be going from here. I submitted an application to the USACE (US Army Core of Engineers) at Canyon Lake, North of San Antonio. There are a couple of other campgrounds that said to call back later near the end of July or in August. If I was smart, I would find someone that can relieve me on a regular basis so that I can get out of here a couple of times a month and stay right where I’m at, to increase my emergency cushion after I get those taxes paid. That’s one thing about this lifestyle is that we have a lot of options.
In the meantime I have plenty to do (when the heat doesn’t wipe me out). I finished the “Outlander” series a week ago and have started rereading the “Harry Potter” series. Only this time I am reading the book and then watching the movie and comparing the two. So far I have just finished reading the 4th book and the movies have followed the books fairly close, other than the books have more in them. Has anyone out there done that, compared books to movies?
I have finally figured out how to get the printer to work with the computer, so maybe I can start working on some projects that I need to finish. No promises there though!
That’s about it, not much else going on here. Enjoy your week and keep cool.
Thanks for visiting
