Yes. This has been the extent of exercising for me yesterday and today. Open the windows. Close the windows. Open the windows. Close the window. Again and again.
We are still in a torrential rain pattern. With a some positive moments of clearing skies and abundant sunshine. But only for a few moments. Then the blackness rolls in, the wind kicks up and.......bam! Torrential rains.
Noticed just a minute ago that the deck I so diligently scubbed on my hands and knees a few weeks ago is once again showing signs of "verdigres" (sic?). Translation: Algae green. As is now the top railing of the deck and the stair railings. Also my statue of the fishing boy.
There is a peculiar smell to the air. Like sewer or septic. We have no sewer and the septic is not showing signs of pooling on the back lawn. I attribute the smell to the small lake that has overtaken half of the front yard, and has been sitting there for over a week now. A veritable breeding ground for hundreds of thousands of mesquitos. And, yes, also shows signs of "algae green".
Ah, but today the temperature is much cooler. Much. Like 25 degrees cooler. Love it! In the 70's. Can Fall be far behind??
Excuse me. I have to shut the windows.
