Journal 03-14-2015

Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Saturday March 14, 2015. The temperature is 72.3F and the humidity is 9% (or less) at 4:41 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0.7 with gusts of 3.8 mph. It was clear when I stuck my head out this morning. Saw the moon and the Big Dipper. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of (*sigh*) 94 today. The high heat and low humidity are perfect conditions for Santa Ana winds. We had some good ones the last day or two.

And now that the time is closing in, the ten-day forecast is saying a high of 78 for the day of the wedding. That would be nice. And happily, no rain in sight.

The memorial for my friend’s stepfather is today. I told her we’d be down a couple of hours early to help with prep. I think mostly we’ll end up keeping company. My friend, whom I’ve been calling Dora, and her stepsister managed to get several posters of pictures together of old and newer pictures. They were quite nice. Her stepfather had a shoe tree of old shoes. Another friend suggested offering them to the gardener. I thought that was insulting and said so. The shoes can go to Goodwill where people might actually be looking for second-hand shoes.

I got up “late” yesterday at 7 a.m. and found that I didn’t have chance to write, not even this journal entry. Hmmmm…..

The writer’s club meets today but I’ll skip it to go to the memorial. There will be another one next month.

I woke up with headache. I don’t like the summer whether already. Let it cool off a bit. So it looks like we had one month of what passes for winter. Mr. Siduri is OK with that. He seems to be in danger of hypothermia when the thermometer dips below 80°. I’m sitting here in the living room with the back door open, drinking a glass of ice water. This is just too soon.

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

Writing schedule (*sigh* Stop me if you’ve heard this before):

1. Start reworking an Epinion review for Examiner

2. Five Examiner reviews.

3. Finish reading Teresa of Avila and start Examiner review of it.

4. Finish beta reading “Infinite Prison”

5. Post a review of a section of World Poetry.

6. Post sci-fi review

Hey I just read your last post on BB. I am not sorry to see you go, since I see you here. I just fianlly reach $50. (Taken me 4 months from $46.34 to $50.) Now they said it will be 60 days till I get it. As soon as I get it or get tired of waiting I will say goodbye to BB.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note. I've been sticking my nose in at BB, leaving likes and occasional comments, but I won't post there again, If it's any comfort, I got my last redemption probably within 10 days so yours should come more quickly than the 60 they warn you about. I was just waiting for it to transfer into the bank and then shoot my mouth off. I'm still surprised my account wasn't deleted.

Just always drop by if you are not so busy, and I pray for your friend and her step sister to be strong for their lost. God bless you all and keep on posting here and work hard for a better result.

Thanks, CalmGemini for your condolences on behalf of my friend Dora. I try to help out and not get in the way. emoticon :smile:
And yes, that wedding thing is getting awfully close. It's ready to pounce on me. I remembered just this morning that I have to buy a guest book.
