Oh, it has finally cooled off here. It’s been nice.

I’m finished with my Master’s—done—finally. It’s so nice to have that over with. Now I can have a life again.

I took the chain saw to the gooseberry bushes under the palm trees by the print shop. However, I didn’t cut one of the stumps short enough, and I bent the shaft of my brand new lawnmower, the one I bought last fall. The last lawnmower lasted many years. This one didn’t even make one.

Something I did yesterday caused me to have an allergic reaction. My hands swelled up and began to itch, but we have no idea what is causing it. We did go out to dinner the night before to a seafood buffet. I had many things I’d never had before so maybe that caused it, but I also had a reaction three months ago so I don’t think that was it.

I’ve been planning all summer to have my brakes done. Thursday they started grinding so I can’t put it off any longer. I really thought I had more pad left than that, but they wore down quicker than I expected.

I installed the new toilet in the third bathroom yesterday, so we have three again. No sink yet, and I still have to do the tile in the shower. Of course I have some time now!
