The combination of scattered rain, a bothersome eyelid, and some undone chores kept me from riding last night. I could use the exercise, but it is what it is.

Summer arrives today, which unfortunately means that the daylight hours will decrease from now until December.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was CLASH. Could have gotten it in three, but had too many possibilities after my second guess, so I used strategy to eliminate some of those and got it in four.

  1. Eyelid is still swollen and irritated. I can only hope that it doesn’t hamper the next few days of fun that I have on my calendar. More to follow…

    Wordle in 2.

    My friend Shelley and I are Publix aficionados so we’re going to go shop together at the new Summerhill location. We passed on the mayor’s ribbon cutting at 6:45 this morning. It’s good to have that one friend willing to entertain one’ inner geekiness once in a while. This is a redux of our shopping trip to Madison Yards when that one opened.

    • David says:

      Summerhill has better parking than Madison Yards. Store is laid out very differently. It was hard to navigate some aisles because of all of the managers standing around gabbing. I scored a free cold bag, so that’s a nice addition to my reusable shopping bags.

        I swear every grocery story is laid out differently.
        We are getting a new KRoger right down the road, I’ll be wandering for days, but the tiny little “ghetto” Kroger will be no more, where I know where everything is.

        • David says:

          Kroger keeps building these monstrosities that are ridiculous. I am a big fan of small grocery stores. I really don’t need to get 10,000 steps in all at once at the grocery store.

    Wordle in 2 with a standard starting word. Woot!

    At the ophthalmologist first thing. Would have been early ( on time) save for rain and crazy drivers. And someone was trying to kill me on the way home. Crossed 3 lanes to turn right.. Haven’t locked the Mazda down hard in forever and he took it in stride.

    25 minutes on the trainer while it rained last night.

    Adventures with old people continues –
    my Dad has an obsession with turning the heat down at night in the winter (says blankets are enough to keep warm (insert eye roll emoji). Well -he does the same in the summer – not realizing we have the AC on? (I mean, he complains its too cold no matter what the temperature is)
    So – good sleeping temp for me & Connie, but mom gets cold, as they only have a lighter blanket on the bed (because sometimes, the AC isn’t on at all). This morning when she wandered to the bathroom, she had a sweater on.

  5. Barb says:

    what else –
    We got 2 more garbage bags full of clothes out & donated.
    Connie baked way too many oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. (we will see ow long those last)
    Internet went out about 4:30pm (very inopportune time) – had to call InOn (how’s that for an internet provider name) & after about 20 minutes of talking, “James” got it working again.
    I could not get my computer to recognize my iPhone hotspot – I’m wondering if out IT department did something in my settings.

    • David says:

      My computer sometimes won’t recognize my iPhone hotspot. I don’t have an IT department, or rather I am my own IT department, and I sure don’t tinker with the settings, particularly when they’re not broken.

      • steve says:

        I have to switch the hotspot feature on and off when my iPad times out. I guess it stops trying to communicate to save battery?

        • Barb says:

          good thought – the IT people said it should work, but right now I don’t have time to play with it – maybe this evening

  6. Barb says:

    my mom has been acting much more feeble than she was 3 months ago, she can barely get up from a chair, feeling dizzy, etc. Tom got her a doc appt this afternoon – I checked her BP, it seems a little low, not sure why she’s on BP meds. We need to check her blood sugar when she gets up. I think she needs some PT, or Occupational therapy to get her arms & legs stronger. (BTW – my 93 year old dad never changes – I really think he will live to 150)

    • steve says:

      Those BP meds will mess with you. AMHIK!

      If I’m going to ride, I’ll skip them and that helps a bit. I have to hold on when I get up from my recliner. That may be a function of being prone, then getting up and combine that with the BP meds and swoon!

  7. Look at all cheaters getting Wordle in two! I had a cracker starting word, but you see it took me four. 😛

    Hello from Gainesville, FL where my “Making New Memories” tour starts tomorrow. Will explain on Monday.

    Mistakenly thought this lawless state would have breweries which opened by noon during the week, Hogtown (aka Gainesville) does not.

    Off to find lunch.

    • Eating at a place called “Crafty Bastards Pub”. Eating a delicious burger, because that looked like the best thing on the menu.

      As I charge my iPhone using a battery another official Apple cable is fraying. How has this not been a Class Action lawsuit!

      It’s going to storm here, so my plan to wander UF’s campus today probably will not happen.

    • David says:

      It’s late enough in the day that I’ll say I used CHAIN as my starting word. It definitely set me up to knock it out of the park.

      I am very glad to hear that you’re working on a “Making New Memories” tour. That’s really good stuff. I had my own version of that last weekend with revisiting my high school and going to the reunion.

      Personally I like Anker cables, and I am a particular fan of their 10′ long cables.

      • Fair. I am sure you all know I am just fucking around. like their cables too, but continue to use the ones Apple provides.

        I nearly bought a t-shirt with a “Making New Memories” logo on it, apparently the logo from the YouTube channel with the same name. The two reasons I didn’t buy it:
        1. I don’t need more t-shirts.
        2. I don’t need to spend money for more t-shirts.

  8. How fortunate, while I am in Gainesville my Gators are on the tv at the College World Series.

  9. Will mention again tomorrow, but I’ve checked into my tiny AirBnB studio apartment and it’s magnificent!
