    I forgot to mention earlier, the apple tree did not produce apples this year, I've lived here for roughly six years and it always had apples every year before...Also noticed the forecast weather for August is unusual, August is our hottest month however the forecast highs are between 15 to 20 degrees cooler, both night and day temps...Some of my plants have reached maturity much faster than normal this year, one reached maturity almost a month sooner than normal for that species...I'm wondering if these are local signs of possibly an early Autumn followed by an early Winter, time will tell, I'm going to watch August temperatures...I'm not complaining lol, would love to have a cooler August, definitely...

    This afternoon and evening became very busy for me, had a bunch of errands to run and chores needed done before dark and didn't want to leave them for tomorrow, it's 21:41 and I'm just now sitting down relaxing...

    Anyone who is interested in Van Gogh, here are some photos from Auvers-sur-Oise France. This is where Van Gogh spent the final 70 days of his life.

    The location of his last painting “Tree Roots” was just located on Rue Daubiny, Auvers.


    Van Gogh’s chair in his room.

    Last night i woke up doing a kinda screaming moan. Freaked the ol lady out. Never hear me do that before. I remember making the same sound when strapped to the table being abducted. From my memories of a post hypnotic regression. I told her that.

    Yesterday Debbie on her way back home took the bus as she normally does to save gas in her shared car. A creeper approached her. after a short conversation he asked her to "slide him her digits. " she countered with she had a boyfriend and was 17. his response is unprintable. she left the bus and decided to wait at a coffee shop for the next bus home. (a 30 minute wait.) while she waited on the padio she saw him approaching the shop. she called 911 and us. she then ducked into a bathroom and waited. we arrived after the cops and took her home.
    she is taking the car for now on.
    the cops will contact us after they pull the bus video.
    creeps are creeping

    I've decided to take this route and have begun expanding this small business somewhat to suit my needs...I think this is the best decision right now all things considered and with much consideration to the coronavirus situation in our country right now...The structure is all in place to grow this business some, which will mainly focus on Siemens, Beckhoff, and Allen Bradley control systems contract work and to a lesser degree other programming or troubleshooting related work...Keep it simple and manageable and do as much remote work as possible...

    All done, well for the most part lol, 7 hours later, painting is done, it was the same colour, just a refreshing coat, floor cleaned, the furniture is rearranged, I quite like it and so does Kobi lol...I have a king size bed so there isn't many ways it can fit well in the room even though this is the biggest bedroom of the house...I still have some small things to finish up and put away, just taking a break from it for the evening, thinking about what to eat for dinner and going to walk out to the garden to see how the watermelons are doing...

    From Kate's FB.
    Me: this is the new me, wait..this is the new new. The 18 year old me.

    I live for change, I love it, I can take change all day long. I can't decide what boxes to put my sweaters in and I turn 18 in 10 days. it makes me nauseous about life, but yeah. I have bangs to match my inner spunk. My hair brings me peace.

    I needs hugs. I had to check in today about whether my anxiety is excited or actual nerves. It make me the adaptation of being excited and also seriously simplifying. I'm two halves of the same whole. I cant find myself in me or her. only when I am alone do I know peace.

    I was going to make a longer post, but last night was drug addict with large knife night. Nothing too bad happened but suffice to say I didn't care for any of that. Made for a tense evening and I had to take the full brunt of it a while. At arm's length I might add.

    I used to deal with difficult people under all sorts of circumstances in all sorts of places and felt I had that all figured out. Working in this twilight part-time job I unfortunately have need of has been a graduate level study of the Human Condition, especially with Cornonavirus. You get to see a lot of weird shit. It has certainly reinforced my skepticism when I hear people making unusual witness reports. You just never know about someone.

    Organized thievery, drug use, and now a potential for violence. Longer story there and not even all that interesting to me, but if this goddamned virus ever makes it possible I need to get away from that s**thole.

    I woke early this morning, drank an 'orange' red bull and tended to the watermelons, there are over 15 medium size and growing, and there's one watermelon that is large almost ready to pick out of there...Then mowed the grass which was still kind of wet but my mower has no problem with wet grass, we have rains coming this afternoon and the remnants of the hurricane/tropical storm will hit us Monday afternoon thru Tuesday...All the outside chores are done, and I was reminded this morning that today is Sunday lol, so I'm going to take it easy the rest of the day...

    Looking out at the neighborhood the lawns are all burnt. My neighbor across the street mows every three days, rain or shine. His lawn is the most burnt. I mowed Thursday after letting the lawn go two weeks. It was just a little ragged in spots but the weather forecast called for rain three days in a row so I figured I better do it now.


    Our problem in South Central PA is we had about three weeks straight of ninety degrees weather. When it did rain it was for maybe fifteen minutes. That may help the corn crops but not the lawn grass.

    'Twilight' was figurative. It closes at 8pm now because of the virus. No doubt closing two hours early has saved humanity as we know it.

    Not murder hornets but just the plain old scary aggressive regular hornets. For whatever reason yellow jackets and now these hornets have decided a large hedge right near the house is the place to be. It isn't. I have plenty of liquid death. No sense of scale after I chucked it down the embankment but it's bigger than a bowling ball and wasn't even active two days.
