After a nice run of gorgeous spring weather, albeit without the needed rain, the next few days will be in the high 80s/low 90s and still no rain. Had to turn on the air conditioner night before last, and I expect it will stay on now.
At least the swimming pool is heating up quickly. Might even be able to start swimming by late April.
Had a lovely Easter dinner out on our huge deck. Pulled out the bone china and went all out, with smoked and grilled pork loin, jaeger sauce with extra mushrooms, German potato salad, sautéed cabbage, sangria berry gelatin, mandarin ambrosia, cheesecake and pecan bar (accidentally made without the flour, so it was seriously gooey good) topping.
Nephew brought both his dogs, which meant it was a terrible day for Czarny (our cat). The dogs ignored him (the German shepherd is actually afraid of cats), but Czarny does not like dogs -- or any interruption to his territory. He hid somewhere outside until the dogs left, then we had to coax him back inside. He's been clinging to me ever since; only went outside this morning.
Getting the RV ready for our first trip since Alaska in 2018. Not taking the motorcycles; WLToo is likely not going to ride again, as his Parkinson's and its medication really mess with his ability to stay fully alert. When we stop being lazy, we'll likely sell both bikes, as I'm the last of our local group still able to ride and wandering off by myself isn't a good idea, when I'm the main caregiver. Sigh.
