Our Springs usually consist of a few weeks of alternating periods of hot and cold. It’ll be so hot you wanna turn on the air conditioner and then so cold you want to turn on the heat. This year we had four such cycles. I finally turned on the air conditioner. It ran fine for a few days and kept the place nice and cool. I went into the basement to do some laundry and noticed a large puddle right under the furnace. I assumed that the condensation must not be draining properly. As I was getting the laundry going the furnace stopped and I heard a loud pop.
It turns out a small fuse inside the furnace had blown. When I opened the furnace to look around a noticed water on the inside. Ended up having to call a guy out to fix the furnace. Turns out the circuit board had blown and had to be replace.
I woke up late at night. The weather had been good so I had the window open. The propane factory was going full bore and I lay there listening to the noises. I heard something different and close by. A cracking sound came through my window. It sounded like wood breaking. A big crash then happened. It was close by. I assumed a branch fell in the trees behind the house. I got up but it was too dark to see and even the next day I couldn’t find out which branch had fallen.
I woke up and looked out the window in my bedroom. The house was flying through space. There was a cool looking nebular and some spaceship out their. I realized I was dreaming. I walked out into the hall. Down the stairs was wide open to space. A gold borg cube was coming at my spaceship. I should have been scared. I mean the borg are terrifying, but I realized it was still a dream. I walked into a different bedroom and the wall was gone so that I could see out into space. A spaceship flew around out there.
I had to pee so I started to the bathroom. The hall light was on and the door into my parents room was open. I could see them in there sleeping. I got worried that light might wake them up and remembered it was just a dream. I went into the bathroom and started to pee. Then I remembered it was just a dream and I should really wake up in case I had to actually pee. I woke up and had to pee.
I finished a puzzle. It was a 2000 piece puzzle and took me a long time. It was of Cassis France and was pretty accurate.
I got up Sunday and decided to go for a bike ride along the Canal. I had to pump up the tires on my bike. It had been so long since I had ridden it that they had gone completely flat. I think I had ridden it from before the pandemic started so over a year. It was a pleasant if cool ride. I only went about 8 miles total. At one point I scared a bird and it flew away. It also pooped right in the middle of my pants.
That night it started to rain about bedtime. I love listening to the rain, so even though it was cold I cracked the window by my bed so I could hear the rain. It rained all night long. Some light thunder woke me up and I heard the comforting rain and rolled over and fell back asleep. I awoke around five and had to pee. The rain lulled me back sleep. I woke up about seven, time to get up, but that soothing rain was still going on, so I went back to sleep.
After I woke up from the rain, I went to Mom’s for Mothers day. Brought her flowers and made her breakfast.
