Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Tuesday June 9, 2015. The temperature is 67.8°F and the humidity is 79% at 4:58 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 0 mph. It was overcast and—lo and behold! There were wet spots on the ground when I looked outside. I hesitate to call it rain. It’s more like spit. But it’s not no rain. Weather Underground is predicting a 20% chance of precipitation and a high of 89° (“much cooler than yesterday”) today.
We spent a good part of the day washing the ceiling in the kitchen getting it ready to be painted. It hasn’t’ been painted in 20 years so a lot of stuff has happened to the ceiling. The mops sponges turned yellow pretty quickly, especially around the over and the stove.
When I was in college, I had a summer job cleaning apartments after people had moved out. Boy, people are slobs. But that’s another story. We had spray bottles to wash down the walls before the painters got there. Whenever a smoker had lived in a place, regardless of how clean the place was, sheets of yellow would pour off the walls. And it stank. It was one of the things, really, that keep me from smoking. That and I didn’t have any money.
The bread came out well enough. It’s an easy enough recipe. I forgot it requires buttermilk, so I took one more trip to the grocery store. I made a loaf for home as well. Mr. Siduri doesn’t care for it as much as I do. Don’t even need jelly. Just slap a little butter on it, if that. The only thing is, it doesn’t keep more than a couple of days.
We’ll be leaving early to take Mr. Siduri’s mom up to the dentist. She, unfortunately, had to have a tooth pulled.
It’s raining hard enough now that I can hear it with the back door open (It’s 70° out, after all and much warmer in the house).
I won’t get much writing done today is the long and short of it because once we get back home, Mr. Siduri will want to work on the ceiling. I have an Examiner review half finished, a fairy tale that needs some tweaking, and there’s always Siegfried. *sigh* Tomorrow.
Off to write another day—
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
Writing schedule (for tomorrow):
1. Work on fairy tale.
2. Spend an hour with Siegfried
3. Finish review for Examiner.
