September is clipping along at a fast pace – I just realized it’s time to break out the fall decor to jazz things up around here. Of course with the inundation of smoke, that sort of was a mitigating factor of not putting out the decor, since our air was hazardous, so limited outdoor activities for sure.
And since our house was built in 1930, we don’t have central air – so to cool things off on the warmer days, we strategically open windows. We didn’t do as much of that during the smoky days, though, but smoke was still getting in. We do have window A/Cs in the bedrooms (we definitely prefer cooler temps for sleeping at night – if it’s too warm, sleep is elusive) so while the bedrooms were kept cool, the smoke was also kept out.
It was disconcerting to exit the bedrooms and smell smoke, though, even without having any windows open. Crazy how that just creeps in willy nilly. Like spiders. Spiders are showing up randomly – and never the same ‘type’ from one spider to the next. I hate spiders with the burning passion of a thousand suns, so if you hear girl screams coming from my house, you’ll know I’ve encountered a spider. 😏
Oh, and we finally got some decent rain late last week, so the smoke has mostly dissipated from our area – so thankful for clean air again!
Little Dude has gotten into a good routine for his remote learning, keeping up on his assignments. Princess Nagger’s online school officially started yesterday (Monday) after 2-1/2 weeks of randomly scheduled orientation. Of course that means the ‘tude has made a reappearance, slightly more annoying than the typical teen ‘tude… 🤷
Time now to move on to the funnies – this cracked me up:
This is so true:
One of these things is not like the others… One of these things just doesn’t belong… Can you tell which thing is not like the others… By the time I finish my song?
This cracked me up:
