Augusta, GAI corrected the date in the heading (this is a very useful tool: http://www.howlongagogo.com/).
This past weekend, we took a mini trip to Raleigh to spend with Jess and Griffin (left on Friday and returned on Monday; about a 5-1/2 hr drive each way -- 300 miles). The main goal was that Jess wanted to take me shopping for a special dress to wear in November when we go to Jamaica to renew our vows (we did find something very beautiful and appropriate for the beach -- you'll have to wait until November to see it though!). It was also Father's Day, but Mitch spent the day with Griffin doing fun things while me and Jess were out shopping.
We also went to our favorite "home away from home" synagogue in Cary on Saturday. As it turns out, they had a special guest speaker that weekend. We weren't able to attend all of the events, but were fortunate to hear him speak then. What an interesting and engaging speaker & storyteller (from South Africa).
Last night (Tuesday), we went to the circus! It was a 3 ring circus by Loomis Brothers. It was interesting, but although it had 3 rings, was quite small compared to the Big Apple Circus with only 1 ring. It seemed to be a family run, somewhat local troupe. I did find it different, watching the circus through the eyes of an adult who is not accompanied by children. A lot less magical I suppose.
This week the temperatures are brutal, with the air temp at 98 degrees and heat index of 107! I'm very grateful the a/c is working but feel bad for all those folks (Mitch included) to have to be outside working all day in this.
And just a note for myself, in case I need to do a search in the future -- we have an RV tech coming later to help troubleshoot the refrigerator. It's been running a bit on the high side (normal is between 36-38, it's been anywhere between 43 and 57). It's a different system than a residential one (ammonia based) and there are fans outside that's supposed to circulate the air, which were not working. We had the thermostat replaced 2 weeks ago but that didn't help. Mitch temporarily installed some computer fans until we could get a different tech out here, who will be here (hopefully) later today. Thankfully, the food is still keeping cold.
On a last note, I'm on a total liquid diet today in preparation for a colonoscopy tomorrow.
