My thermometer reads 107.2F 41.8C

I just... can't... I went out for a few minutes to do more picking up (still have bits of plastic from a neighbor's shredded roof tarp, & have begun taking out the plastic privacy strips woven into the sagging chain link fence I still haven't tried to get removed). And it's just... I watered a few plants and refilled the bowls I leave out for birds/stray cats & gave up.

Still writing on my Team Iron Man fic. Wish I was also in drawing mode for Spoonflower, but I'll take what I can get. Writing is better than not being creative, even tho it earns no $$-- but it is good for my ego. :^)

Summary:

Sweet, shy Steve Rogers had had it! He now held the dubious title of oldest unmarried man in Oakdale — and a virgin, to boot. It was high time he shed his scholarly shell and unleashed the temptor within. Problem was, he didn't know the first thing about men, let alone seducing one….


Heartbreaker Bucky Barnes had been away for twelve years, and boy, had things changed! The innocent boy who once had tutored him in math now was a man in need of his help… to snare a man! He'd always admired Steve, but his stunning transformation was too much for any man to resist — even a sworn bachelor like him...

So far, looks good. Father & Son guys came by at 8am & gave me a $300 estimate to do the job. They're going off to give an estimate somewhere else & say they'll be back in 2 hours to cut my tree.

Yay. I do NOT EVEN CARE if the tree dies as a result, I want it lowered down far enough I'll be able to trim it myself next year. (It probably won't die. Hurricane Andrew in 1992 knocked it down, we cut it to a STUMP and it came back.)

YAY. They came back and did it. (It's now 9:30) They did a nice clean job & even raked up leaves afterward. *GLEE* I added $40 for a tip, because 2 guys did 95% of the work & I was going to give them $20 each, but then 3 more showed up to finish the last 5 minutes of picking up the wood, so I just gave the $340 to Son & he can decide whether /how to divvy.

Tree-mendous...

Ok, my body is calling it quits, in addition to the bum left shoulder, and trick left knee, I now have a dodgy right ankle. I do not KNOW WHY, it's not as if I did any injury... probably I'm just the one-hoss shay that fell apart all at once. :^)

My hands and arms and back are legitimately sore from work, but the other bits just decided to give up.

I kept trying though, and I ALMOST had one of the higher branches. Cut through all but a tiny fraction and it swung down and STAYED, at an angle and height where I can't cut it, adding to the three branches that broke during the storm in much the same way.

So I tried once more to find a tree trimmer, this time I asked my boyfriend Google 'tree trimmer' and it asked tree trimmer near me? And I was all for that.

Found 2 close to me, one was shut for the day, the other said 24 hours, which I figured meant I could at least leave a message. 'Father and Son Tree Service'. Father doesn't speak much English, but was polite & told me to call back in a few minutes to speak to his son.

Spoke to the son about half an hour ago, & he said he'd come by in an hour or two to give an estimate.

*FINGERS CROSSED* I think it may be too dark soon, but if he doesn't show up I'll try him again in the morning.

EDIT: 2 hours later he called to ask if he could come by in the morning. Glad I thought to ask WHEN because he said 7:30-8am? There's been times that's when I went to bed... not gonna argue, will just have to get to sleep EEEARLY.

Oh wow, you all probably don't know about Howie. He is a Yorkie I adopted two years ago. He's got major anxiety issues but I love the little monster. I'll have to post pictures of him and Drake when I get home.

Ow, but *sigh*

My left shoulder hasn't been happy with me for quite a while, and it really doesn't appreciate tree trimming. I finally decided to try calling a tree trimming service, hoping the mad rush would have died down by now.

Nope. Too busy. I tried another old card & he's out of the business. I have two more business cards but they're even older and entirely written in Spanish. I do not have the energy to deal with the inevitable miscommunications there.

So... back to doing what I can, only slower, make the right arm do more of the work. If it gets too bad I'll just give up and try again in a few weeks. I've removed a lot of the broken stuff, but it's got to the bigger, higher branches now & that's reallllllly slow.

CURRENTLY 99.7 F --- 37.7 C

yEah, break time. WHEW.

Title: Home to Family
Author: luvbarryfefe (captainamergirl)
Fandom: Days of Our Lives
Pairing/Characters: Max Brady/Chelsea Brady (Benson)
Rating: Teen+
Length: 4404 (so far)
Summary: Family means everything…

To Chelsea Benson, the warm, close-knit Brady family is everything a family should be. Everything her own family wasn't.

But the Bradys are facing difficult times, and when Dr. Max Brady comes home for Christmas, Chelsea hardly recognizes the troubled man who'd been her best friend since he'd defended her in the sixth grade. Suddenly Chelsea feels like an outsider….

Then Max uncovers a secret about her that his father has kept for decades. Once again, he's there to help her deal with the truth. Only, this time they're becoming more than best friends. And the rest of the Bradys are looking forward to making her an official member of the family.

Notes: I didn't finish this story yet, but hopefully (crossing fingers) that will happen soon! As of now though, there are just 2 chapters up. Anyway, thank you so much to the admin of this group for creating this challenge. I am having a total blast with it.

Yes, I'm back! I had power restored 2 1/2 hours ago (ok, that's when I started this post). I caught up on my AO3 updates, & comments and subscriptions and then just sort of wallowed in the joy of power! and internet! AND DEAR GOD, the blessing of air conditioning.

Life is good.

Indecent Suggestion (16339 words) by aralias
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Kerr Avon/Roj Blake
Characters: Roj Blake, Kerr Avon, Ensemble
Additional Tags: Community: unconventionalcourtship, Hypnotism, Episode: s02e10 Voice from the Past
Summary:

There has been a mistake! When Roj Blake and Kerr Avon go to a hypnotherapist, they expect to be deprogrammed, removing the residual influence of Glynd’s ‘course interceptor’. Clearly the treatment hasn't worked, because Blake is still acting strangely. Oh, and now they're having sex. Lots and lots of sex. And it's definitely changing things between them.

Lovers come and go, but what about the needs of the revolution? Is Blake ready to sacrifice his goals for the sake of a little--okay, a lot--of seductive satisfaction? And yet, how can he possibly resist such an indecently sensual suggestion?

Just wanted everyone to know that I got a call from feng-shui-house and she is fine. Her power is out, but I'm sure once it's back up and she's got internet access, she will regale you with hurricane tales.

Argh, craptop is drving me crazy

Took forever to give it what updates it recommended, but now I can't set up the email. Couldn't get the mac email and couldn't get the google email (gmail sent me a warning that an 'insecure device' tried to use it.) I'm going to TRY the 'migration assistant' from this puter (if I can find the right cable to connect the two puters) and see if I can get it to do at least ONE email.

Otherwise... eh. May run out of time. I have to finish picking up the yard, can't be forever fighting this beast.

My back hurts from all the bending over...

On the bright side! I remembered I have a portable DVD player. I was just watching on the desktop (bigger screen better viewing angle) but I located the player, and its battery and its power cord and plugged it in. With LUCK maybe it'll have enough power to show one movie?

Ok, I give up on the craptop-the only two ended firewire cables I have are the ones I use on my portable hard drives & when I tried putting on into the craptop it warned that it would overload the hub (and it wasn't even plugged into anything else) Also the system can't be upgraded enough for me to use Google Chrome, but at least MacSafari works. At this point spending more time on it is a waste.

It looks like I MIGHT be able to use it to comment on the internet, but that's about it. Will test that later, gotta go do more yard picking up.

Found a Lemon, might make lemonade

I forgot that years ago I bought a mac craptop. I went back and forth with trying to get it either replaced or repaired because it was mucked up from minute one.

Finally after it had been sent to mac twice and still was not working right, I THOUGHT I threw it out. Several YEARS later I got a notice from Mac that acknowledged that whole line of puters was borked and I could get it repaired if I replied & gave the ID number, etc.

Since I was SURE I'd thrown it out I didn't bother.

But last year when moving stuff around I found the craptop. So today I plugged it in and turned it on. Seems to work as well as ever (not very, but eh). It's so old the enclosed internet connection cable doesn't fit Comcast's modem, but the wifi worked, so I've got it now attempting to upgrade the system (prob. can't upgrade much.) Luckily I'd written the password on a scrap of paper inside it...

Wow, that thing is pitiful. Have to try to see if the emails even set up. Don't know if I'll be able to use it for email after the storm, but it's worth a try. Currently leaving it plugged in to power to charge up the battery.
