Minneapolis, Minnesota: There hasn't been an appointment on our calendar for months, and we had TWO today. A service tech came this morning to service our three roof-top air conditioners. It had been a while, and we live in a very dusty environment, so it is good to have them cleaned-up and serviced. All three may be needed in the coming heat.
We were both able to exercise before the tech arrived, and Tuesday is the day I am supposed to stay home, organize myself, change the sheets and iron the linens. All of these things occurred, and I baked a loaf of focaccia in my spare time. Though it took hours to service the three air conditioners, all were declared "still good" and are working hard... with a slight warning that the front air conditioner will be the first to go... but, as Jimmy Buffett would say: not yet.
In the afternoon, we again met our real estate agent to tour through two smaller homes in a country club in La Quinta. No offers made.
Knowing we would not return until late, I put a Lamb & Lentil soup (heat and eat) from the freezer on our menu tonight, along with a salad. (Did not photograph salad, but it was a near exact repeat of the composed tomato salad from the other night, with artichoke hearts in place of asparagus. Use your imagination.)
A rare busy day! Not so sure I like all this activity, and can't believe how much our lives have changed over the past 90 days. We share an iCloud calendar. The only appointment notices we get from each other now are about an event - usually a track meet - being cancelled. It's just too depressing. I used to check the calendar daily, but rarely do anymore, so have missed a few birthdays, and feel terrible.
Until my next update, I remain, your oddly busy correspondent.
