Monday was another hot, sticky day here in Southeast Michigan, with the usual threat of storms in the afternoon as the heat caused the air to be unstable.

I went to the Newburgh Grill for lunch and had a gyro and fries. It was excellent as usual. Then I went back to work (too hot for even driving in the park) and read my book in the air conditioning.

So, when I came home, I worked inside the house for a change. I stripped the bed and threw everything in the washer. Then I cleaned the stovetop.

Next I finished vacuuming the office, bedroom and main bath. I had to keep digging cat hair out of the vacuum whenever it started to lose suction. Then I washed all the wood floors. I put the bedding in the dryer on my way out to the garage. It was around 7:30 PM.

I took the garbage can out to the road. I figured it had cooled off enough to cut the front lawn, so I did that next. Then I used the string trimmer to clean it up a bit more.

Back inside, I was damp with sweat again. Since I just made the bed up with clean sheets, I decided to take a rinse-off shower. Then I finally ate supper. I warmed up one of the Polish sausages I’d grilled. I ate that with grainy mustard and some pasta salad on the side.

I watched the Detroit fireworks on Channel 4 while reading a magazine that had come in the mail. It never did rain here, although I saw on the news here were thunderstorms in Sterling Heights. I went to bed around 11:30 PM.
