09:00 pm - The rain it raineth every day, still
A number of people seem to have had broken nights last night. The current weather doesn't help on the sleeping front, but neither does the vague but persistent daycare malaise. When Daycare Hugh said 'It's been over a week and I still haven't got my appetite back' I didn't realize that means 'It's been over a week and I'm still vaguely queasy all the time'-- even though I didn't have the stomach version and he did.

Am informed that too much ginger causes rather than cures intestinal upsets, which may be a factor. OTOH I've returned to a weight unseen in fifteen months and have cut my anti-inflams to less than half the usual dose.

Current Gallagher has, as ever, married people who cannot keep it in their pants: small towns are indeed a hotbed of adultery and vice. But has also a dotty English family of the Cold Comfort Farm variety, which is a happy change. Also has a trope of the sea rising up and drowning us all etc etc, which in this high water summer, when beaches and Islands are closed because of flooding, is a bit too close for comfort.

It rained here too, but thankfully it was the 'right' kind of rain by me. Breaking the humidity, maintaining a good drop rate, and long into the night which makes for nice 'sleeping weather' and dawns the new morning a cool one and it shouldn't hit a dreadful temperature till ooh at least 11:30 in the morning. So as of now at ten, it's kind of bright, nice and not searing.


.. and oh that sounds like a 'not very nice' collection of people in a book. Happy reading.

Glad you're getting the right kind of rain- and sorry people are being twits.

Yay ... it rained again today ... and yes thank you. I hate it when people get stupid ideas, and then won't let them go.

Thank you.

Yeah, too much ginger can be irritating, not unlike anything spicy - horseradish, mustard, radishes, etc.

Since I don't think of ginger as 'spicy-hot' in the way of horseradish and mustard, this simple truth never occurred to me.
