I’ve lived in Arizona for twenty-three years. I’ve lived on the border for eleven years. I fixed my granddaughter a snack this morning–carrot sticks with chili-limon sprinkled all over them. They’re pretty good. She’s three. It was her idea.
I went out and weed whacked the yard this afternoon. You have to be wacky to even think of doing that. I raked over a couple of snake holes in the ground. I would rather have snakes than rats in the yard if I have to choose.
I came inside dripping wet and jumped straight into the shower. The more I turned the hot water down the hotter it got. Our water l is pumped up to the top of the hill into a tank that sits in the sun. The line from the meter to the house runs across the south facing slope of the property line. In the summer the cold water can be scalding. Luckily the hot water heater sits in the garage where it cools off a little. With the water system I have do you think I can take a solar energy credit?
Oh well. I am clean and dry. I would have showered under the refrigerator water if I didn’t mind walking out into the kitchen in my all togethers, but now he fan is turning and the air conditioner is running. I think I’ll sit down and watch the World Cup. The USA is still in. Gooooooooooool. Gotta love futbol.
And July is right around the corner. I think I’ll grill carne asado for the Fourth of July. Can’t wait for the fireworks!!
