Upper 80s all week this week. Nasty at times. We could really use some rain, and I could really use some time with people out of the house. Spouse last-minute (like, Monday 7/2?) told me he was taking Thurs and Friday off. Whee. Of course I was already scheduled out the whazoo with work, and more piled down today. I think I'm slated for about 8 reviews this month, so far. Ugh.
But then spouse came down with a sore throat, almost-laryngitis, and a cold. I seem to have a milder form of it. So we haven't gone anywhere anyway.
Have I said how much I love my box fan?
Actually, the house has central air (everywhere but one bathroom upstairs where the vent seems to be blocked-must get that checked out!) but we are rightfully still very cheap and keeping the temp around 74 indoors. Still, heavenly compared to what it could be.
Writing continues. I am muddled about a peripheral character who may or may not be integral to a plot twist later on. I guess I should just leave him alone and let the back-brain do its work and see what happens with him.
I would really love a nice thunderstorm right now, to break the heat. No real rain since before school ended (at least 3 wks).
BTW, Happy Higgs Day to the hard-working folks at CERN. (Remember, keep the beer bottles and brie away from the beam line.) Symmetry ho!
Stay cool, people.
