It was already 68 degrees when I woke up at 5:00 a.m. on Thursday! This does not bode well...

I made hard-scrambled eggs covered with ketchup for breakfast. Note: I prefer soft-scrambled eggs when eating them as is, but that doesn't work well with ketchup.

I watched the morning news until 10:00 a.m., then I shaved, showered and got dressed in a t-shirt and shorts.

I ate a simple salad for lunch.

I took a bag of garbage out back to the trash can. It was hot, humid and hard to breathe. Since I was out there anyway, I finally got the wheelbarrow out to the compost heap, emptied it and put it in the shed.

I have a lot more leaves down. Oh, forgot to tell you, the weatherman said the reason the leaves are turning so early this year is that the trees were stressed this summer by the drought conditions.

Back inside, I started back hand sanding the toy box. I was moving right along until I found one strip on the front side that had split at the very bottom. Dammit!

Luckily, it's as easy to take off as it is to install. I heated it back up with the iron (six inches at a time) and pried it up with a putty knife. Then I replaced it with a fresh one.

The house was getting uncomfortable (we hit a high of 88 degrees here) so I turned the air conditioner on. Imagine that! Needing the A/C on September 21!

I took a break to let it cool and watched the news at 4:00 p.m. I shouldn't have laid on the bed as I never got back to work.

I did get up and fixed two hot dogs with potato salad for dinner.

I watched some DIY shows and went to bed at 10:00 p.m.
