I'm getting behind again, so I will try to catch up today by writing, first, about Sunday's events. Hmmmm....it was hot again Sunday so we stayed inside all day. First up was a couple of recorded English Premier Soccer matches, then some reading, then some general TV watching. Nothing else to really report about Sunday, but that was the essence.
We were back to work on Monday, and looking at low 90's temperatures. I began working at my normal summer start time......7 am. I have gotten somewhat used to the temps in the 90's, but it still leaves me very tired at the end of the shift. I worked on reclaiming the pool area from 7 am until almost 11:30 am. Rich reported that there were between 70 and 100 people in the pool area both Saturday and Sunday. As you will recall I swept and vacuumed the pool Sunday morning, but by Monday morning it was dirty again, plus the deck was very dirty sporting numerous food spills, bird dookie, discarded chewing gum, and a few cigarette butts. There are numerous 'NO SMOKING' signs around the pool area, but you know people, right? They will do what they want if you are not around policing them 24/7.
The horseshoe pit area showed a lot of use, and it took me longer than normal to get it ready for use again. Most of the time (about 95%) people put the horseshoes back, but on this occasion they were just left in the pit area, so I had to put them away. The mini golf course was buried in eucalyptus leaves, which did not surprise me as it was a little windy on Sunday afternoon. By the time I finished with the mini golf area it was time to clock out for the day.
We are in the "dog days" of summer right now, and the days have all taken on a certain sort of sameness. We look forward to the end of summer, but we've got a few more weeks of hot temperatures before we see some relief. All that being said, we are still very happy to be where we are, and still loving the people with whom we work.
On the weight loss front, I have stalled out at 194-195, but the big thing is I am maintaining my 22 pound weight loss, and still looking forward to dipping under the magic 190 mark in the next few weeks. The wound on my side resulting from the removal of the zero stage melanoma is healing quite nicely, and my right ear is also healing quite well. I'm actually getting used to my new look.....it kind of looks like Mike Tyson took a bite out of my ear.
Thanks for stopping by!
