Hiker didn't wake me up the normal time (6:15 am) this morning. I woke up and looked at the clock and it was 6:30 am and she was snoring at the foot of the bed. Got up and fed her and let her out to potty, then we both got back in bed and stayed there until around 7:45 am. We headed out for a 2 mile walk and then home where I made my breakfast...waffles and sausage. I ran out and got my Lotto tickets and then came home, put the sheets and towels into the washing machine and vacuumed Hiker's hair out of the carpet. It was already 80° by 9:30 am. Spent all day in the house with the A/C on because it was just too darn hot to go outside. There is supposed to be a partial eclipse of the sun here as the sun goes down this evening. I may try to see it by having the sun's light reflect through a pair of binoculars since you are not supposed to look directly at it. Where my older brother lives in Paradise, CA, they are supposed to have a complete “Annular Ring-of-Fire” solar eclipse. Here in SoCal we will only be able to see a partial eclipse. Worked on a jigsaw puzzle most of the afternoon. Got up to 95° here which is way too hot for me. If I am going to take Hiker out for a walk, I'll have to do it around 7:00pm. Maybe it will cool down by then.
