We had five glorious days with almost no smoke and cooler temps. Saturday the heat and smoke came back. Today, Sunday–the smoke is really awful–we can’t even see the foothills from the house. Rain is in our forecast for mid week and we are hoping the forecasters are right this time!
The Cowboy is making great progress with the fencing–the last couple days he has only worked until about noon–way too hot out there and now it’s smokey again.
In the past I made a lot of my own clothes–lined jackets, blouses, skirts, etc. For some reason I quit–patterns were strangely sized, I had more disposable income–who knows but I quit. I’ve seen women my age wearing knee length, short or sleeveless dresses in summer and they always looks so nice. So, I ordered a pattern and yesterday I made a dress using some of that quilting fabric I have. I like the dress. Today I began cutting out another one–a longer dress which I also like but made from a stretchy cotton with spandex–not sure why I bought that fabric but an entire bolt was on my shelves.
The Cowboy was to have had two Mohs procedures for skin cancer on his face on Friday at Billings Clinic dermatology. On Wednesday the phone rang and it was a man who said, “is Michael almost here?” Seems they thought his appointment was on Wednesday–nope! I did not receive any reminder calls for an appointment on Wednesday which Billings Clinic always does, sometimes even twice! We live 100 miles from Billings and if we have multiple appointments I try to schedule them on the same day. I scheduled the Mohs procedures and my haircut for Friday–not Wednesday! So of course they had no time available on Friday nor on any day the first part of next week. We have plans so now the procedures have been delayed until September 1. GRRRRR!!
I’ve been writing a blog since 2008 and it’s become a chore instead of something I enjoy. I’ve kept a journal for years and will go on keeping that journal but it will no longer be public as of September 1, 2021. We thank you all so much for following along with us during our RVing days and now our restoration days. The restoration of the house in Arizona is almost finished and it’s time for this blog to be finished also.
