Tuesday Trivia

I was just so sure that we were going to get rain yesterday!  Radar showed that there was a huge front just across the river.  It was cloudy, the temperatures dropped, the wind picked up, and I even heard thunder.  But not a drop fell.  Sad smile

There are two nurses in our small group, and both advised me to have my arm looked at.  It was looking a lot less like a rash and more like an infected bug bite … which is what the doctor at the Urgent Care Center diagnosed.  I’ve got a heavy-duty antibiotic to get that infection cleared up.

The heat wave continues.  There is a 20% chance of a spot shower … hopefully that spot is here.  Winking smile

I see a “cool-down” and rain next week.  The Weather Channel is predicting a 40% chance for next Monday and a 60% chance for next Tuesday.  I know that’s way too far into the future … but hope springs eternal.

We finished the puzzle yesterday afternoon, and we’ve got another one to start today.

Our ice maker is not making ice again ... and there's another pesky ice cube stuck in the feeder ... time to get out the hairdryer.  There's got to be a reason why it keeps clogging ... but I just hate to spend the money for a service call, when it's so easily remedied.  

Tomorrow is the 4th … our plans are still up in the air, but #1 on our agenda is to stay cool.  Winking smile


  1. Wow, glad you got your arm seen about! I know the heat and lack of rain is frustrating, hopefully, relief is within sight. Have a cool and Happy 4th :)

  2. Glad someone diagnosed it so you can get better!!!!!

    I just ordered a puzzle - you've inspired me! :) I always love to sit & do them on a lazy day... now if only I can get a lazy day in my schedule! :)

    Dang ice maker!!!!!!

  3. you and i watch the same news channel, it looks like! haha. i was standing outside last night grilling some goodies when that wind came up. i hollered for my daughter to come outside because i was going to dance in the rain with her! well, just like where you are, it got windy and the temp dropped a bit, but no rain! we even did a rain dance and it didn't work! haha.

    stay cool. that's all you can do right now. i'm kind of glad the fireworks shows are being cancelled because that takes away the temptation to go sit out in the heat and watch them!

  4. Hope you get the rain and hope you have a wonderful 4th!

  5. Hi there friend, We got some rain last night(our monsoon season)and it is predicted for the next five days-we need it too, our poor lawn is so sad. I'm glad you went to the dr. and got antibiotics for your bite. Stay inside and stay cool.
    Hugs, Noreen

  6. Oh, do hope those antibiotics are hard at work. Those skin infections can be so scary today.

    We are just as hot and in just as much of a need for rain as you all. Did I say I'm ready for fall?

    Hoping you and yours had a great 4th today.

  7. Hope you're having a happy 4th! I have some catching up to do with my reading. We have both been awfully sick and are just now starting to feel human again.....well.....except that I think I'm going to have to go rest now!


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
