It is suddenly blazing hot, the thermometers said 108 degrees on the patio. I put on the sprinklers then ran to the library (figure of speech, of course I drove) to pay my fine. In the garden, everything is growing well so far, but he is trying to get some beans to sprout this week, so I have to keep them damp. I hear that he is unlocking the front door, just coming home from work, so I better go mix up some tuna salad, because it is way too hot to cook.
We had an 'everyone for himself' dinner. It is interesting to see what family members will make for themselves. He makes himself a fat tuna sandwich and some fruit, I have leftover salmon patties (eaten cold, out of hand) and and apple, and Abby makes herself some taquitos. After he spiffed up the kitchen, we lazed around until the sun went down, then went to the DairyQueen. They currently offer a Georgia Mud Blizzard, which amused Abby, since she goes to school there, so she ordered one, but she chatted with the guy behind the counter. Apparently, he was in the band with her at the high school, but while a chat is nice, it caused her to get the wrong order, some kind of coffee flavored blizzard. I am not into blizzards myself, and always get a dipped cone. The heat had eased off, so we sat outside on the wrought iron benches and ate our treats. A breeze came up, babies went by in strollers and waved to us, all in all a lovely evening.
