Well, we did get rain yesterday, some in the afternoon, most of it overnight. In fact, there's still a bit of the drizzly wizzly still falling outside. I don't mind the rain. Rain is free, watering my mini-garden costs money. Within the past 2 months, every one of my utility bills has increased: electricity up $6 per month, natural gas up $2 per month, and water up $4 per month. These expenses are all easily covered by my paychecks from the big, orange home improvement retailer I work for, but this is not the case for others which may be why we've been hiring a lot of seniors lately.
If the forecasters are correct, out temps today will only climb into the mid 70s (F) with a 92% chance of rain, however, this weekend we'll be topping off the thermometers in the mid 90s (F) with full sun. Our next rain event will be arriving on Monday, that is if the forecasters are right.
Buzz Lightyear didn't hit expectations on when it opened this past weekend. I will wait for to watch it when it hits Disney +. I understand a lot of phony Christian /Conservatives are blaming a fleeting, lesbian kiss. You have to remember that these parents and grandparents have turned Disney in a babysitter. Plop the kids down in front of the TV and all you need to do is cast the occasional eye on them. These homophobes are now pissed off because their kiddies might learn that there is nothing wrong with two mommies kissing, or two daddies for that matter.
I made some French toast yesterday with homemade bread. Tasty! Today I'm going to attempt potatoes with oregano, a side dish which will probably be main for later this afternoon. That's right. I usually eat my dinner late in the afternoon. Meals before bedtime are not the best.
Yes, my bills are rising too and I have been trying to cut back where I can. Not much I can do when the temperatures are in the 90s though.ReplyDelete
So far, we're not getting those temps here. Last year we got hot, a couple of days in the upper 90s, maybe lasting a week at best. We did get a lot more rain than usual, which seems to be how it's trending this summer.Delete
I wouldn't believe Ginni if her tongue came notarized.ReplyDelete
Notarization might make her tongue more notorious than ever.Delete
I hear you with the raise in bills. Even going to the supermarket has gone up.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying the hearings. Listening to Repugs throwing Repugs under the bus while telling the truth? Priceless.
And I can't wait until they tear Cheeto to pieces on live TV. THAT would make all this waiting worth the while.
We're suffering through American Capitalism at its worst. The hearings are a great source of entertainment.Delete
I understand the hearing may be going linger also...as even more evidence, information and witnesses are spilling even more beans.ReplyDelete
Some of these Disney movies I don't get. Give me the old Disney classics.
Which is precisely what the Republicans do not want. I have no problem with the new Disney movies. They're all so very diverse now.Delete
Love me some French toast. And pancakes. Mrs. Shife also makes something called oven-baked pancakes that are the best. This is a small sample size but my brother told me he wasn't taking his kids to the Lightyear movie because Buzz kisses another dude. Well then I listened to a podcast that talked about the kiss and it was not Buzz at all. So maybe the false rumors contributed to its poor showing but regardless it is, in my opinion, much ado about nothing. Love is love and the turds that think it can only exist between a man and a woman are idiots.ReplyDelete
My understanding is this is stand-alone story with Lightyear, with none of the other Toy Story characters. Oh, and it's raking in between 7 and 9 million daily, so I don't think it's doing that badly. Oven baked pancakes... sound very inteeresting.Delete
Thanks for sharing the blog so well and I hope you have something new for me to study.ReplyDelete
