Just a quick note to let you know that the weather has cooled down significantly. It's now in the low 80s.
About those high temperatures I wrote about, I don't know how accurate my thermometer is. I hope to check that some day soon. But hot is hot and it was stinky hot!
Thanks for your comments, I've been busy with paperwork that I don't want to do, but must do.
I've also suffered with very long wait times on the phone when trying to reach some real people, as opposed to computers trying to sound like people.
Is that happening to you as well?
But that's in the past. Today, Thursday, has been an absolutely glorious day here in the mountains. Temps in the low 80s, with a nice breeze, sunshine and blue skies. Well blue skies are all we get here, but some days those skies seem prettier than others.
I've just given a younger cousin the advice to finish paper work, decluttering, inventory etc.. before she enters 70. After that things take up much time and effort, and sometimes require help and explanation. I'm now struggling with tax return issues, and with some legal problems, and strongly regret the delay in doing these things.ReplyDelete
Hi Inger - oh yes ... waiting for people is awful, I just try and skip the AI bit ... and make sure they talk to me - or I actually write and demand an answer: at least it's tangible!ReplyDelete
As my mother used to say ... for goodness sake darling just get on with it, don't put it off ... all very well for her to say that - she was in a Nursing Centre and I was dealing with her, her brother in law and my own legal hassles! I used to laugh as I talked to her ...
Glad it's cooler - I have to say I'm glad to actually know the sky is blue ... we have been having awful grey gloomy weather ... and it's getting a little warmer - so I'm more cheerful - in fact off for a walk and then to meet a friend ... see you - have a peaceful weekend - cheers Hilary
So glad you are in the 80's. That is almost sweater weather in comparison. Had a nice surprise for September. Flipped over the page of my puppy calendar and there is Faith's look a like looking back at me. It will be a fun month.ReplyDelete
How interesting, so did mine, but it comes from Sweden. A puppy calendar for service dogs for the blind.Delete
What a relief from the heat. And I agree, the worst part of officialdom is waiting for people to get back to you.ReplyDelete
My dog, Laydee looks like your dog.ReplyDelete
Today is the first day since July, that our AQI is moderate with no smoky skies. Today’s high also will be 93 which is low after a very hot and dry summer. Autumn is knocking on summers door!
so happy to hear you got a nice day for being outside. Hi Faith, sorry I called you Phase, my silly phone can't hear well. ha ha..ReplyDelete
It has gotten down into the 70's here. Yes, it is really hard to get many businesses to answer the phone now!! Probably because of covid and so many working at home? It is frustrating.ReplyDelete
I envy those cooler temps! I went apple-picking and it was BRUTAL! I bet fall is especially pretty in your area.ReplyDelete
I'm glad for the cooler temperatures here as well.ReplyDelete
I get the run around on the computer or the phone. Everything seems so complicated lately. Especially when dealing with the government.
Our power company is sending the bill by email and my husband has difficulty viewing the bill and I wrote to them on his computer and ask that they change the bill to my email so I can take care of it and I explained about his diminished vision but about 8 days later they send a reply that they can't do that because my name is not on the bill and because of the privacy Act. He will have to contact them himself. Things are getting ridiculous.
Enjoy the cooler temperature.
I am glad your weather has cooled down. Cute photo of Faith! It is awful waiting on the phone for help. Take care, have a great weekend!
I'm glad things cooled off for you. It did here too and it's been nice the last few nights to let the cool air into the house!ReplyDelete
Oh yes, those wait times on the phone are just ridiculous!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear your temperatures have cooled down for you.
Hi friends, Ojo here! It has cooled down here too. We are very happy. Enjoy your cooler weather, and good luck with the phone non-people!ReplyDelete
Pleased it has cooled down for you.ReplyDelete
It is awful waiting on the phone for help, but from time to time it has to be done!
Hope you get all your paperwork sorted soon.
All the best Jan
