You know how much I dislike being gone from home. Yesterday . . what a day!
I left the house a little after 9:30 to go to knitting. After knitting, I went and ate lunch, then went to get the car inspected, and the oil changed. From there I went to Hobby Lobby were some man pitched a fit and was rude and said something that sounded scary to me. None of the Hobby Lobby employees reacted so I hope I didn’t hear him right but I was ready to get out of there. It’s sad that someone can act that way and I think it was just because they didn’t have something he wanted.
Then I left Hobby Lobby and went by the grocery store. I wanted monk fruit sweetener, needed more cheese sticks, milk, then Vince texted me and asked me to get a roasted chicken and potato salad. Not fair to ask me to get something I can’t even eat but I got his potato salad.
From there, I went to the health food store. Love that store and the people in there. I brought my milk in with me because didn’t want to leave it in the car.
When I left the parking lot, the temp said 100 but I figured it was because it was sitting on hot asphalt. When I was getting gas . . oh . . yes . . I filled the car up while I was out. I was talking to a man who was also putting gas in his car and he was saying how hot it was. I said “Do you know the temp?” He said “No, but it’s probably about 95.” I looked at the temp when I got back in the car and it was 100 but then when I started home and got to the last stop sign before heading out towards the country, it was 102 at 4:12 p.m.
I’m cautiously optimistic! 99 tomorrow but there’s nothing in triple digits for the rest of the year. Oh, please . . let that be true! Look at the high for Friday and Saturday. That will feel amazing and . . a chance of thunderstorms. What we wouldn’t give for a bit of rain . . at least enough to lessen our fire danger.
I don’t need to rush to get those sweaters knitted but I’m hoping the worst of summer is behind us.
