It hit 100 in the valley but “only” 95 on the mountain.

I was in bed before 10:30 and woke fairly early. I saw my neighbor beside her work van so I went out to say good morning. We talked for a little while. She was on her way to pick corn and tomatoes.

The wintertime cool room is now the warm room. I took some of the Roma tomatoes I’d been given and put them in the dehydrator. I don’t need to warm up the main part of the house any more than it already is so it went in the other bedroom.

I did all of my exercises including a 98 second pushup. I’d set the timer for two minutes three seconds but I couldn’t manage it. I’ve noticed I don’t do as well if I haven’t eaten enough the day before. Maybe that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy?

When I exercise, I watch programs I’ve recorded. The other day, I was watching the Andy Griffith Show where Miss Crump had given Opie all A’s by mistake. I was laughing so hard at Barney trying to recite the preamble to the Constitution that it made it almost impossible to do my routine. It was good medicine.

After my shower, I went out and lay in the sun for 45 minutes. I thought I’d stumbled upon the solution to critters bothering me but the Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap didn’t do it today. I managed 30 minutes lying on my back but only 15 on my belly. I took my Micro with me but it kept skipping so I gave up after the third try. I brought it in and formatted it. I need to load some stuff back on it.

I didn’t get a whole lot done today because I spent so much time trying to listen to Victoria Boutenko on the Raw Summit. It was live last night and put online for 24 hours. It would get to 40-some minutes and quit. It wasted my time. I was going to try to listen to one other one but I’ll forget that. What I did hear was very interesting even though I knew most of it. I can tell my back is out of place from sitting at the computer so long. Could I go to the chiropractor and send the Raw Summit the bill?

I’d e-mailed my daughter that I was going to be “out of pocket” this afternoon and I’d call her later. I don’t know if she hadn’t checked her mail or not but there were a bunch of missed calls from her on CallWave.

After I drank my green smoothie, I called my daughter. After we’d visted some and caught up on a lot of things, I told her I needed to consult with my SIL about my pension. He and I talked long enough for him to give me some things to think about plus he set up a spreadsheet and e-mailed it to me. I’m going to send it to myself at work and share it with the others so it will help them decide whether to take a lifetime annuity or a lump sum. I talked to my daughter again and that was that.

I’ve done some wall pushups to try to pop my back into place but it isn’t working. I’m sure no Samson. There was an alliterative piece in the helps for last week’s Sabbath School lesson that I thought was unique. It’s:

Seduced, shaggy Samson snored.
She scissored short. Sorely shorn,
Soon shackled slave, Samson sighed.
Silently scheming,
Sightlessly seeking
Some savage, spectacular suicide.
Stanislas Lem

Not only am I no Samson, I could have never thought something like that up.

I’m sitting here yawnin’ and a’gapin’ as my mother would say. Think I will hie me to bed after I transfer some files.

Good night!
