Finally slept soundly!

While we got rain it was not in the amount that had been forecasted, we only received .52 of an inch.  I have been monitoring my bank account to see when all the checks I wrote last week cleared the bank. Fortunately, all the ones related to my Harris County property taxes have been paid.  However, two other checks one mailed the day before and one mailed the same day as the taxes have not.

One of them is the fee for the P.O. Box so when I went to pick up my correspondence stopped to inquire why and the reason is that they never received it!  If I do not pay it by next Friday I will have to pay more because the fees are going up...I had paid the fee for current box holders.

Swung by the library to ask for help in learning how to scan documents so I won't have to keep a physical copy and cut down on my paper clutter. The people that work there are very helpful. Learned that scanning using their machines is FREE whereas making black and white copies cost .10 cents apiece. It was a no brainer.

Ran out of serranos again so stopped by little HEB but like last time ended buying much more to prepare for the colder temperatures. By the time I got home, I was exhausted.  Sat down to watch the start of a Spurs game but before I knew it...it was 1:11 a.m. and I had missed the whole thing so went back to sleep.  I woke up at 7:05 a.m. after sleeping soundly for 12 hours!

We had a low of 42 and a high of 73 degrees with plenty of sunshine.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
