Just idly wondering how folks here make their coffee.  Thirty years ago I used a 50s vintage Farberware percolator, which still works.  (There are some who still swear by this method, while others deplore it.  "Boiled coffee?  Are you serious?) Then I used a French press.  Then a Braun drip machine for a long time.  Now I use a Kone drip filter in a Chemex carafe.  Best yet.

Joan, I "threaten" to relax more--sit out and read, etc., but somehow, I find a weed to pull or a flower to deadhead, or ......! Instead of watching mice, I watch birds. Whatever, enjoy nature and life!  By the way, at last word, the rains didn't appear to damage my farm kids' crops as much as feared. Whew. Get well soon (foot).

Randy, your sunflowers and lovely outside room look so inviting. Not more rain, you have had quite enough. Are your kids going to survive the loss of their crops? Terrible experience! You are lucky to have a hygienist-daughter! I suppose you learned all the reasons to floss after each meal. That is the lesson I learned from my dentist, former husband. 

Mindy, how did moving day go? She's all settled in and ready for the challenges of college! 

Richard, I'll join you in a cup of coffee ... long distance. 

I am taking a day or two off because of a sore that developed on my foot and isn't healing properly. Well, that is my version of why I am taking a day off. I have my computer, and Kindle loaded with a whole stack of books to read, and I sit under the tall sunflowers just beginning to drop their blossoms. The squirrel came over to sniff at my foot the other day, I wonder if it is because of the Vicks Vapo-Rub the podiatrist ordered to treat the fungus that overwhelmed my finger and toe nails after chemo? It is so pretty outside this week. The temperatures are in the low 80s, a nice breeze, full sun, and expected to last all week. My water feature drops a nice steady drip that attracts birds, and a mouse scampers across the patio from time to time between the bird feeders. I don't notice him unless I am quiet and reading. Movement out the side of my eye attracts my attention. They really are cute little rodents. I kill them if they get in my garage and house. Shame on me, attracting them and then murdering them. I did change my bird feeders so that not so many seeds drop to the ground.

Dentist visit was long and tedious. Need to return to replace a lost filling. I've noticed I'm not drinking as much coffee this summer. Too hot.  Hump day. Hope you get over it!

Hi everyone. Dentist day today. My daughter, a hygienist, will clean my teeth. I'll probably freeze in the office with their AC. Not used to it. Have a good week.

Maybe it's because of my thin frame that heat doesn't affect me. That, and being cold makes me wish I wasn't! Give me the sun and hot temps any day.

Right now, it's pouring down rain--with thunder and lightning. I bet I've had 3" in the past 12 hours.

Fresh coffee to go with my blueberry added oatmeal this morning. I'm rarin' to go and eager for some really hot weather. It sure beats the cold.

Hope your day is filled with sunflowers!

Is it Friday already? Very cool morning (46). I have a sweatshirt on, and it's the middle of August! Hope you all have a good day and weekend.

Good morning coffee lovers and others. Have a good day and a better week. For all you midwesterners, enjoy the cool temperatures.
