If we were having coffee together, today, I would suggest iced coffee. The Heat Index is 90°F (32°C), and the humidity is higher than is comfortable. I look forward to tonight, for which the forecast low is 58°F. Yesterday morning we had a thunderstorm and pounding rain.
The living room and kitchen are still a mess. I have two more bookshelves to empty before we can remove the last of the carpeting. The puppies have decided that they can climb and eat everything, so books are going into the basement, where I gave away enough books that shelf space is now available. The puppies are now wrestling on the love seat.
If we had gotten together yesterday, you would have found them devising new methods of pushing back the kitchen chairs so they could climb onto the table to get onto the counters. (They’re now banned from the kitchen as well as the basement, bathroom and the sleeping areas.)
If we were having coffee together, I would share my frustration at having to spend the majority of my waking moments during the past two weeks either napping or dog sitting. My husband has activities to attend to; yesterday he worked a paid four-hour shift at the marksmanship center. Volunteers are sparse during the summer months. Last night, we put the puppies to bed in their kennels before midnight, and I stayed up writing, reading and planning out various activities until after seven o’clock this morning. I put on the coffee to brew when I woke up shortly before ten o’clock. I’ve been trying to find time to write a #weekendcoffeeshare post since Friday. By the time I sat down, my head was empty of all ideas.
The puppies (who are getting restless) will soon be begging my attention for another trip out outdoors. Thank you for spending time here visiting with me. Before you go, I have a few photographs from yesterday morning before the rain to share that I worked on during the night.
