A sultry Sunday

July 2nd, 2018 at 12:35 am

I don't know about other people but the tremendous heat wave we're into just causes me to stay home and not do much of anything.

The AC is set at a mostly comfortable 77 degrees. You can really tell the difference when you walk in from outside. Any higher and it's too hot upstairs.

I've whiled away a lot of hours getting into succulent propagation. I had 2 echeverias that were lanky, so I deadheaded both for replanting, and also pinched off lots of leaves which, after they callused over this weekend, I then "planted" in dry cactus soil, to encourage them to grow roots. This rooting process will take weeks; it's an exercise in patience, but hopefully I will have lots of baby Echeveria Black Prince and Echeveria Perle von Nurberg.

I did also tidy up the garage, and I've been watering all my potted plants on a daily basis.

I have plenty of yard chores, but just can't bring myself to do them.

The USDA site where I logged all my exercise shut down effective June 30 (thanks Trump) but I found a much better site do record exercise and diet at It automatically calculates your calorie intake based on food items you input.

    I keep my AC set on 78, day and night. It seems to be the sweet spot for me for comfort level. I also have a ceiling fan in the bedroom that I use to sleep comfortably.

    In California lots of heat this weekend. I keep the house at 80 or so with AC because I have ceiling fans in the family room and office very near each other and two bedrooms keeping air moving. After about 10 last night I could open windows and put fans in the to bring in cooler air. Closed them up about 8 this morning but had the fans running for a couple hours. It helps keep the ac off longer to use the cooler morning air. Opened then again about 830 tonight. But we don’t have the humidity like back east which feels like it never cools off. This week into the low 90’s or high 80’s. Following week back over 100.
