Hot and Smoky
The wildfires in the Great Dismal Swamp are burning again, leaving us with air conditions that don't allow any outdoor work, although with a heat index over 100 again I wouldn't be out anyways. The smoke is unusually heavy today and feels like you've got a tree stump on your chest trying to breathe. It's infiltrated the house and it smells like a campfire in here!
I'm neck deep in overhauling my entire computer system by erasing hard drives and installing software upgrades and all the fun that goes along with that. I was tired of doing temporary fixes and figured I'd better just go ahead and devote the time to it now rather than risk waiting. The good news is that it's a mac, so it's never really dead, it just needed some "me" time :) I apologize if I missed any of your blogs, it looks like all my blogger reader settings migrated fine but I can never be sure without visiting every blog! This is all incredibly interesting stuff, right?!
Another reason for quiet on my end the past few days deserves its own post...
