WOW! It has been HOT here. Yesterday afternoon it was 94 on our patio. A week ago it was in the 40's. Crazy weather for sure.
Believe I have finally fixed the comment problem I was having. It had been most recently that I would go into settings and email notification. But...the issue was there was no email address there and I was not able to add an address. Instead, now, you have to go to "invite more people to comment notification emails" and put your address in there. Weird. Anyway, we'll see if it works. This is what I finally found:
Anyway, how was your weekend? Mine was nice (in spite of the heat). Saturday I drove up to Dee's and then she drove us up to Easton and Threebirds Coffeeshop. The drive up 611 by the Delaware River is a gorgeous ride...and one I used to drive with my Dad when we would head up to Vermont. Some cute and quaint little villages and some beautiful architecture. Easton was crowded and busy and there was no parking to be found (except in spaces where the meters were broken and we didn't think that was a great idea), so we drove over the bridge to NJ and parked in a lot there and then walked back across the river and into Easton. Thankfully there was a breeze to keep air moving and it had not quite gotten up to 90 at that time. The coffee shop is just as cute s Dee's pictures have shown. I tried to get a couple of shots of the birds, but those pictures did not turn out. We sat and chatted and knit and then later drove to a great place in Hellertown (Braveheart) for lunch.
On the not so good side of things, Fletch and I were sitting on the patio before dinner and he found a deer tick on his leg, and it had managed to bite him. He put some Neosporin cream on it and a call will be made to the doctor today to get him on an antibiotic treatment (or the same one dose, two pills that
Colin had the other week).
Yesterday was groceries and trying to stay cool. Breakfast was a Dutch pancake but instead of apples I used a peach, an apricot and a bunch of raspberries. So good! I managed to do a little stitching and a little knitting. I finished another dishcloth:
Love the HOT pink color! A simple, easy pattern that requires almost no thought which is perfect for these sultry days.
I've got to head to the office in a little bit. Last week my laptop got extremely hot to the touch on the way home one day (laptop turned off and stowed in my backpack), so Tom from IT is going to look at it. The only thing I can think of is the battery...so maybe a new one should be ordered. We'll see. Meanwhile, work is still crazy busy (in that I was working Friday night and Saturday morning early before heading to Dee's and then Saturday evening too), but that should drop back down to a normal blur sometime this week.
Then at 12:30 I have an eye appointment with the doctor who will be doing my cataract surgery. I believe that my first surgery will be scheduled when I see her today. Hopefully SOON!!
And that's it for me today. Hope you are all well and here's to a great start to the week!
