I felt tired out today. In the middle of the night, I thought one of the smoke alarms was beeping from low battery. I got up and stood under the one near the back bedrooms and found it was not the one beeping. Then it stopped and I didn't know which one it was so I went back to bed. It awoke me again so I grabbed and wooden chair and took the battery out of the one outside my bedroom. I think the beep woke me up several times. At 6am, I got up and walked into the kitchen and heard the beep coming from on top of the cabinet. I got the chair and stood up there and saw it was the CO2 detector. It was beeping and showed LB meaning Low Battery. I changed the batteries and made my coffee. It took AA batteries. The others take 9 volt. I thought I might as well change them but I couldn't find any 9 volt batteries. I thought I had two in the cabinet but all I saw was AA, AAA, and C.

It was cool so I put on my clothes that had been sprayed with OFF and went to the back yard with my bow saw. I was able to cut the limbs off the big branch that fell into the yard during the storm. I dragged them over to my brush pile which is getting quite high. The big branch can be carried away if I get someone to help me.

I went to my dentist appointment this afternoon for my check up and cleaning.

I still didn't get my email up. I didn't feel like dealing with the cable company today.

Hi Karol, It's such a bummer when they "update" stuff on computers and the "updates" do not seem better - but oftentimes - seem worse!! I finally get used to the changes and then it is time for the next updates!! I've never been too great accepting change and in the world of technology change is the name of the game.

Our temps have come down some and it is wonderful. It is still becoming pretty warm in the house by mid-afternoon, but, in the evening it is cooler again. For us, we love being able to sleep with the windows open and we've been able to do that the last few days. Yeah! However, the cornfields look pitiful. We need rain desperately.

Stay cool my dear. Love, Ruth
