Summer

Posted on Friday, May 18th, 2018 at 10:55 am

Got to 95°F yesterday.  It’s summer.  A/C has been running for a few days.

.

I’ve picked out my dentist, affordable, well rated.  All I need to do is get my body up to snuff.  It’s been a little slow in bouncing back from this spring’s barrage of activity.  But there is no time pressure on the schedule.  I’m hoping to have it done in two weeks (by the end of May).  It is summer now, so the distractions are wilting.  Looking to begin the first of next week.

.

For the weekend, it’s rest and medication, in prep for the next week.

Snip

Cut my hair today.  Got a thumbs up.

.

Myka got a new scratch pad, belated birthday.  She has gone nuts over it. Not sure what she’s smelling (didn’t open the cat nip bag), but she has been all over it.

.

Getting ready for dental work.  A little slower than first projected, but not a big problem there.  I have ample window for it.  The ball is rolling.

.

Almost recovered from the Fling, still tail draggin’ a bit, but things are getting done.  Stayed home from music school tonight.  Looks like a typical summer this year.  90s coming on schedule.  Still no steady high dew points, but they can’t be far behind.  A/C is ready to run.  Fan is sufficient for now.  The wild flowers are folding.  A farewell to spring.

 

Rainy day

My body is starting to rebound from last weekend.  A little slower than usual, but there was the trip to Bryan, not to mention errands.  But I am starting to get the rest needed to mend and rejuvenate, at least for starters.  Unpacked the guitar today.

.

Need to call UHC and see what sort of dental insurance I have.  It was largely gutted late last year, what little assistance there was, but there might be a bit of help on x-rays, etc.  Then I can get started.  Haircut first.

.

Not much else going on.  Lots of sleeping.  It rained today, a perfect excuse for vegetating.  Not that I need one.

Recovery

Spring Fling was last weekend, and my body is still fussing at me.  I’m not in the least bit surprised.  I was there from Friday until Monday, and I left because the 64 pounds of ice I bought on Friday was down to less than 2 pounds.  I needed it to get the leftovers home in good condition.

.

It was a musical monstrosity, music going non-stop for 12.5 hours on Friday, 17 hours on Saturday, and 17 hours on Sunday.  And I mean non-stop literally.  And the new talent was exceptional.  I came home with sore fingers, though I paced myself and played a little on Monday morning.  I was accused of slacking on Sunday evening, but the manic nature of the music circle told me that I wasn’t needed until everyone folded.  I would sit and lead, and I’d be over-ridden in short order, so I backed off until I was truly needed, finally exonerating myself of the slacking charges.

.

I wasn’t able to chow down as much I would have liked, as I wasn’t able to do a proper training to empty my digestive tract.  But I did sustain myself well, and what I ate was yummy.  I bbq’ed two pork loins, and they were proper.  They even made it on Monday breakfast as Canadian Bacon.  But I brought over one loin home.  (I gave Julie about four pounds of it when we got back to Brenham.)  There was more than ample food.

.

So the freezer is jam packed again.  (I got three sirloins on special today, last day of the sale.)  My body is sore and needing regular doses of ibuprofen.  Today was garbage day, and I thought it was Friday because of it.  (Brain is still fuzzy.)  But I got most items unpacked, washed where needed, and I can sit and vegetate now.  Well, maybe a run to Music School tomorrow, though I won’t be playing music all night.  I got a little extra sun, pink but not burnt.  So I will primarily be indoors for the next few days.  The memories will keep me satisfied.  It was a good party.
