Too much baseball?

Yesterday's game got rained out. Get a roof, people! So today they are playing 2. The first game starts at 1 pm my time which means the second game will end, likely about 8 or 9 my time. Baseball overkill. But, I will still probably watch most, if not all of it.

The pool was populated this morning. People I have not seen before. Interesting and fun. I made a quick stop at Trader Joe's and then headed towards a yard sale. The neighborhood where the pool lives has a giant bascillion house yard sale every year. They really do it right. They make this big map of all the sales that is even searchable. I found a place that advertised sewing stuff and fabric.

Last week, one of my LJ friends wrote about having her introvertedness challenged by staying at an AirBnB where it was clear she was expected to be chummy with her host. I don't really think of myself as in introvert or extravert. But in this case, I'm happy to spend more $ to stay at a hotel when I don't have to be friendly. I think it's that switch that got flipped when I got to the garage sale. It was one woman sitting at a table surrounded by her stuff -I drove on by. I have enough stuff and Amazon if I need more. I love a bargain but gimme Goodwill or a thrift store. No someone's front lawn.

So home and breakfasted and considering cutting out some fabric from a new pattern. The dirty clothes hamper is pretty full. And I still need to make a pompom for dangling off Zoey's new lounge plus fix that fabric under the hammock. But... it's now 11 am and I'm still working on my coffee.

My sparkly nail polish is holding up so far and I'm really enjoying it. I love my fingers today!

A/C day...

It got warm in here while I was cutting out the sewing project. I took at peek at the weather forecast and declared that today was the day to set up the air conditioner. It looks like we're going to have several very warm days in a row. I want to be ready.

So... I did the first ever set up of the new A/C and I'm very happy. It's way more simple to do and the profile is way nicer - cleaner and sleeker looking. Here's what it looked like in previous years with the cat door next to year with the swim noodle.



I had the door closed for a while during set up so I could check stuff and it got really hot in here. So I opened the door back up and turned on the air conditioner. In less than 5 minutes it went from 83 degrees to 78 degrees. SWEET!!! I turned it off and it took less than 5 minutes to get back up to 83. Hmmmm Maybe it really is hot in here! I love seeing the current temp and having all the controls on my phone.

Edit: A/C off now and I just realized I have on a long sleeved shirt - could be contributing to heat ... doh.
