The thunder woke me early this morning. As far as I knew, we weren’t expecting a storm, but these days, it can be hard to tell what’s going to happen with our weather. The leaves were rattling last night — the “rain” rattle. Wind makes a different sound.
This morning, however, the thunder was loud and louder, so I got up and ran around the house, closing windows and doors and turning on the air conditioning. I didn’t need the cooling. It isn’t hot — but the humidity was very high. Air conditioning at least keeps everything from getting damp and we avoid that smell a house gets when everything in it feels clammy.
The birds and squirrels were out, rain and thunder notwithstanding. Good or bad, they live with it. Life without walls.
I have no plans for the day except some phone calls I need to make to reschedule doctor appointments. I had a few this week, but I didn’t have the money for the co-pay. It will be another couple of days before money arrives.
The big surprise of the morning was getting on a scale and seeing that since last week, I lost four pounds. How did that happen? I’m not complaining, but I’m puzzled. I’ve been eating more, not less — but weight keeps slowly but surely dropping.
Meanwhile, it’s still thundering and raining. I guess I should dry my hair before it dries itself.
