Fetch me my parka, Jeeves!

It's been ridiculously, unseasonably cool here lately.  I love it.  Today is forecast for a high of 88 and a low of 72. Arctic!!!

Normally at this time of year, the temperature doesn't dip below 90 until after 9 or 10PM. I'll take this any day. Also my drought-plagued region has gotten several days of much-needed rain. So far, I'm liking the weather this summer. 

Today I begin reading my Microbiology text for the class that begins in 3 weeks. Wow. Time is flying. 

I'm also going to enter an essay for a scholarship competition that's due in September, so I have prep to do on that, as well. 

Set a dr appt for July checkup and Thursday I go in for my first Hep B shot. Glad I took a couple of days off to get my ducks in a row. When you're working 12 hour days, it seems there is little time to focus on other things and take care of business. 

I have 9 days of vacation to burn off before I go part time in the Fall. Sure, I could take the leave as an extra paycheck, but I'd rather use the time to recharge my batteries. Fingers crossed and hoping I can manage a trip to New Mexico in August  

Gathering with friends last weekend was gloriously restorative and filled me with delight. Was very sorry not to see the folks who were absent, but they were all kept warm and close in our hearts and in our thoughts. 

July 1 will mark the one year anniversary of the arrival of my Little Bit, Miss Mochi, into my home.  She is an absolute delight, and though she is a handful, I'm so glad to have her here. 

In other news, I've just been informed that my (dry)brisket rub is on the TSA list. I can't wait to hear the full story on that one!!!

I guess you could mail the rub to yourself. Very weird.

Maybe because it is dangerously delicious?
