104 expected, still no wind

i just ate a lazy cake. they're brownies with melatonin in them to mellow you out. M ordered them online. they taste good. i don't know if they mellow me out any, i'll have to pay attention to that today.

i went out for a walk while it was still 101 yesterday. i drank that soda in record time when i got home, along with a bunch of water. doc's right, the heat isn't as oppressive without the extra weight. still oppressive without any wind or breeze, but not nearly as bad.

maintenance came and fixed our broken water faucet in record time. only one day if you don't count the weekend, which i don't. so we now have hot water in the kitchen again. makes washing dishes much easier. not that i've done that lately. there's one pan that needs to be hand washed. the rest of the stuff in the sink, doc put in the dishwasher today when he got up.

i'm enjoying the shallow and civil thing that doc and i have going. only when it gets personal do we fight. so i keep it light.

he got me a new plant from the dollar store. it's a succulent. a charlie brown christmas tree of a succulent, but it holds on to life, so i'm giving it my best. i'm hoping this one lives.

here

lazy kakes = 3 hour nap. i wouldn't have even gotten up, but i was finally hungry. i made a burrito with left over taco meat and guacamole and some white sharp cheese. it felt good to be hungry. felt even better to eat.

tech hasn't bugged me to go out for a couple of days. maybe it's too hot for him. it's still 102 out and sunset is in 20 minutes. even felix spent all day passed out in here instead of out on the balcony watching the birds. it can't be easy with all that fur. we really need to catch feral cat. i can't bear to think of it (we really need to find a gender neutral name for it) out in the heat all summer, that has to suck. last night FC was here and felix was out running around. he didn't come home for another two hours. i don't even think he jumped last night, i think he snuck out the door while i was stepping out for a cigarette. cheeky monkey. that's not going to become habit.
