July

Wow, it’s already July. We are having such hot weather. The house is closed up at dawn and coolers started. Today, is suppose to be only 95, but back up to a 100 next week. I think I’m going to have to get a window cooler for my sons room as he doesn’t get any circulation at all in there.
I’m off today and have already done a bunch of things but still there’s a bit more. The touch up paint, eBay stuff, and I want to try and make pickled jalapeños. The recipe is from the blogger eatdrinkgarden.com ,I think that’s right. Also, keep watering everything. Our water bill is going to be high.

My husband and son are going up to the high sierra music festival. they’re taking the tent trailer. My husband likes to do these things but not me, so it’s nice Z is going with him. Z was suppose to go backpacking but it’s so hot I don’t think it’s a good idea. In some of these canyons it can get to be 110 if it’s 100 outside. So not good for hiking with a 50 lb pack.

I’m off till Saturday as the library is closed Friday. It seems silly to open Saturday , but that’s the county.

Tonight is pizza night. And then Friday BBQ or something. Since it’s only Sachi and me will see. I’m starting to feel a little panicky about retirement and money. We’ve never really saved and now were on the count down. I feel like we just can’t afford to support 2 adult children and in the next year or so they need to move out. My social security is a joke, and that’s one of the reasons I work my small job. It’ll be my husbands that’ll support us but, do we stay in this house with a $1500 mortgage. It’s scary and I don’t know really what we’ll do. Plus, how will my health be? Geez, I must be having  an anxiety day…
I suppose it’s best to just keep minimalizing, and saving what we can.
