Daily Life in Oz Land

Ok, I am sooo not used to these temps! We have a heat advisory today, which basically advises everyone to stay in air conditioning, if you can. Heat index may get as high as 107 today, plus the humidity is very high, so a very bad combination. At 1:53 p.m., it's currently 96 degrees.

Daily life consists of early rise between 6:30 and 8 a.m. to get the girls outside and then feed all the critters, excluding the horses who are happy with their grass this time of year. Put some coffee on, check my email and maybe do a little reading. I'm currently reading The Simple Living Guide by Janet Luhrs. Great book if you're interested in streamlining and getting back to basics. I made some "from scratch" macaroni & cheese yesterday morning. This morning I made pancakes from Bisquick, but quite tasty with a little vanilla added to the batter.

I'm having just a little difficulty adjusting to my schedule, which consists of getting up around 1 a.m. to fix/finish Tom's dinner. Then I'm awake until 3, sometimes 4 a.m., watching TV with him. Usually he falls asleep before me. Last night he started watching "The Kingdom" with Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner -- not usually my pick as far as movies go. But I got involved in watching it while he fell asleep. A bit graphic for my taste, but a very simple and profound ending. I seem to run out of steam every 3rd or 4th day, and I can only attribute this to my weird sleeping/waking schedule. So yesterday I ended up napping for about an hour. :) I've never been much for naps, so that's a very new concept for me.

Tomorrow we are heading north to Abilene, KS to visit his relatives and attend a rodeo; it's about a 2 hour and 45 min drive. Tom was born and raised in Abilene and although both his parents have passed way, he still has family up there. They are throwing us a little party, then we'll head to the rodeo for the evening so Tom can watch some of the team roping events. Hopefully I won't pass out in the forecasted 104 heat!! How embarrassing that would be! :-0

I've included some new pics -- some are for fun, and some are me playing around with my camera and trying to get better at taking pics. Blogger.com isn't very user-friendly when it comes to arranging your pics in your blog, it's quite tedious. So if it looks a bit mussy, oh well, what can I say. I did my best. ;-)
