Yesterday’s little birthday cookout for brother Mike was a good event. Saw cousins, nephews, brothers, and neighbors. Good burgers and great side dishes. Cooked outside and ate inside, a reasonable approach given the heat.
Speaking of heat, good news, the oppressive Louisville heat wave has broken. Temps will be a reasonable low 80s this afternoon and downright pleasant for the coming week.
Bad news, I Ieave for the west coast tomorrow, and the temps there are heading into the mid-to-high 90s for Tuesday onward. Supposed to be a solid 100F on Tuesday. I can’t catch a break, weather wise.
My new Turo mini-business has launched, and my just-purchased vehicle is now gainfully employed. It will be here making money for me anytime I’m away, on the west coast or elsewhere. That’s cool – I love it when a plan comes together. I call it a mini-business because even best case, it’s not a lot of money. But it does change a growing expense (car rentals while I’m in Louisville) into an income stream, more than offsetting the expense. Not life changing, but it feels smart.
Lots of cleanup, button up, and shut down tasks today as I get ready to leave town for a while. Maybe quite a while, as both Sept and Oct are really busy with scheduled events. The kids come to CA for a while, I have my annual golf outing in NOLA and another in Hawaii, and a company event over a long weekend. So just not sure when I’ll make the trek back to Frankfort Ave.
Even with the heat and not seeing the kids much, it’s been good being here. Peaceful. I’ve had plenty of time to think and make some sense of the weirdness of the summer. Let’s all vote for a Fall with a lot less weird.
