Journal Entry 02-24-2015

Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Tuesday February 24, 2015. The temperature is 45.3°F and the humidity is 86% at 6:01 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0.7 with gusts of 0.7 mph. It looked like it wasn’t to rain last night and we got some sprinkles yesterday evening, but that was all. It was clear when I stuck my head out. Saw the Big Dipper quite clearly. The moon had set. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 72 today.

Had a short drive yesterday. The wait time for the rider was 2 hours so of course I have to wait longer to get that authorized and jump through a couple of their hoops, etc. At least they’ve been paying me. There was a while when I’d submit say, an hour and a half wait time and they’d pay me for 45 minutes. And they pay me so much to begin with.

Haven’t heard from my sister who’s here from Alaska on vacation (…long story) since our other sister took her to their place in Mexico over the weekend. I don’t want to nag her, but I assume if she were getting bored, she’d contact me if for no other reason just to let me know she was back.

And I’m shocked to find that I still have an account at Bubblews after all the naughty things I said in my good-bye rant. I have 52¢ in the account over there which I can walk away from without too much trauma. At the rate I was going, it would take me nearly three years to get to the redemption threshold of $50 and who knows if the site will last that long? And if it does, who knows if I’d even see that money?

But enough of that.

Mr. Siduri is going up to take care of some banking stuff for his mom today while I’m on the drive. Last time we did that, last Friday, she ended up in the emergency room. Happily, it was just an overnight hospital stay, but this is her fourth hospitalization in about 2 months. It’s stressful and scary. And I imagine not much fun for her, either.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.

Writing schedule:

1. Continue reading Teresa of Avila .

2. Spend an hour with Siegfried

3. Write up interview with Jeff

4. Review something for Examiner.

5. Review “The Judge’s Will”.

Seventy-two degrees? How wonderful! When spring arrives here in northern Ohio, I'm envisioning all sorts of people with spring fever.

Seventy-two degrees is nice. No complaints (except from Mr. Siduri) but the trade-off is we roast in the summer. It gets over 100 degrees. I really don't like it.

Having lived in Oklahoma City for a number of years, I can sympathize with your dislike of those unrelenting summertime temperatures. Often when the wind was blowing -- and when isn't it in OKC? -- it felt like walking outdoors into a blast furnace.

I have said a few snarky things on Bubblews too, but still am alive and well there. Whatever!

msiduri wrote on February 24, 2015, 2:28 PM

Well, I went beyond snarky. I didn't use obscenity or cross the line as far as libel or slander. However, I did mention a number of friends of mine whose accounts have been deleted and arbitrary and capricious enforcement of rules.

I was always doing that stuff and still got paid ---until the last one $51--snides..

Your siblings is on different country that is so cool. and I am sorry about the old lady I hope she is going to be fine and I hoe that God will always protect you guys with His wall of protection. Have a great day.

Thanks for you kinds words. My other sibling lives near me in California. Her girlfriend owns a place with her father in Mexico, though. (You have to be born in Mexico to own property there. He was.)

I'm interested to go over to the B site and see what you said!

We have Santa Ana winds upon occasion here, dry winds that blow east to west. They can be quite warm, and can be strong enough to rip off roof tiles or knock down small trees. They also pick up dust and what have you and blow in people's eyes.
