Well, we started into a heat wave here in western Washington today. They say we'll hit record breaking temperatures over the weekend. That means my house will be about 10-15 degrees hotter inside than outside.
I did manage to get the back yard mowed Wednesday afternoon. It was terribly warm but it really needed it and I know it's not going to get any cooler.
Wednesday evening I took my son out for his birthday dinner. I had called my brother & sister in law and told them of my plans & invited then to join us if they could. Jim & I walked into the restaurant and there they were. Jim got a big smile on his face when he saw them and we had a nice visit over dinner.
After dinner, I decided to go to the local Fred Meyer store to get some gas & a few things needed for the cupboard. If you spend $100 during a month you get 10¢ per gallon discount on your gas the following month. I always get to at least $100 and usually go over it, so I was able to top off my gas tank for $3.75 a gallon. Yes, gas has dropped to under $4 a gallon here in my town. I understand that in Seattle, it's still over $4 a gallon.
I discovered over the weekend (thanks to my darling grand daughter) that the nice new digital camera that I got for 25 years of service at the hospital takes a XD memory card instead of the usual SD card. Since I really like my old camera, I hadn't even taken the time (in a year & a half) to check out the "gift" camera. Until Meghanne mentioned it to me, I had never heard of the XD memory cards~has anyone out there had any experience with them, either in the past or at this time? Let me know what you think, please.
This month is going to afford me two opportunities to meet two AOL JLand friends. I got a call the other day from Trees who lives in Canada~she has a journal called the Garden of Friendship. She's visiting her friend in Oregon and Saturday they are coming up Interstate 5 to visit some cities nearby. They think they will be coming thru here Saturday morning around 9 or 10am and we're going to meet for breakfast.
Then on August 30th, I'm going to have lunch with Lori and her husband Chuck who are driving from Alberta to Seattle in order to take an Alaskan cruise. Lori has a journal, Lori's Letter Box.
I'm looking forward to meeting both of these dear ladies.
Well, my head is starting to droop..I guess I'd better go and see if I can get some sleep...until next time, Linda
