Summer Solstice

It was noticeably cooler on Wednesday and still no rain.

I had a bowl of potato soup for lunch.

When I got home, I decided to try and fix the dryer.

Sidebar: An electrician at work told me"something" was arcing in it, tripping the breaker. He said it's usually the power cord, so I bought a replacement one.

I put a blanket on the floor and gently laid the dryer on it's face. I unscrewed the cover that the cord went into and then disconnected the old one.

Sidebar: All little screws that I was worried I would drop and lose.

Then I put the new cord on, put the cover back and stood it back up.

I started the Wednesday wash.

Next I got the charcoal lit and took out a steak I had thawed the night before. I grilled that. I didn't have any sweetcorn to grill, so I made some frozen sweet corn on the stove. Dinner was pretty good!

I put the clothes in the dryer, turned it on high and turned it on. About halfway through the cycle, it popped the breaker! Dammit! So, I turned it on medium and finished drying the clothes.

I watched a little TV, but was asleep by 10:00 p.m.
