Sorry to anyone who tried and was unable to take the blog readers survey over the weekend. They were upgrading their system, and everything should be working now. Please take the survey if you haven’t done so yet. I won’t even get to see results until 20 people take it from here. The good news is that if you already completed the survey from another blog, you don’t have to answer the questions all over again.
This weekend was really really hot. And I have no air conditioning. Well, we have a couple window units (hopefully will be getting one more this year for the room my computer’s in), but GG was away all weekend and I couldn’t set them up by myself. Also, I don’t like to start using the ACs until June – just like I hate to turn the heat on until November. I’m stingy. I figured out ways to keep cool, though. I kept curtains closed, opened windows when there was a breeze, drank a lot of water, and tried to hang out in the cooler rooms of the house. The kitties also figured out how to stay cool, mostly by stretching out on tile floors or in front of breezy windows. Also, I planned my errands for the hotter parts of the day, so I could enjoy the air conditioning in the stores. The thermostat got up to about 83 degrees in the dining room (and who knows how hot it was upstairs)… but I know that the summer is only just beginning.
I watched the entire second season of The Office yesterday and today. I feel like I work at Dunder Mifflin now. In fact, it’s almost made me excited to go back to my own office tomorrow. Almost. Also, today after GG got home we went to my grandmother’s house for a Memorial Day grilling event. I brought tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad. We also had burgers and hot dogs, German potato salad (brought by my uncle), deviled eggs, and strawberry pie. (There were brownies, too, but nobody had room after all that.) It was nice, plus I think I talked my uncle into helping us build a patio in our back yard this summer.
