The heat and humidity are back in force, along with the cicadas… It’s Morning Coffee Muses

Other than that it’s quiet on the back porch this morning. The tablet seems to be working, though formatting the memory card wiped out most of the camera archives and all of the music I had on it. That’s ok though, as most of the images had been uploaded somewhere if they were any good at all.

It looks like the afternoon showers are not in the forecast for today. Yesterday’s showers were pretty small. More of the summer rain pattern in the forecast for the weekend though. I’ve gotta say, at least the thunderstorms provide a break from the sun’s heat…

Even the squirrels are no longer afraid of me. They come right up to the bird feeder with me sitting right here on the porch… I’m losing my alpha predictor persona.

Time to go in and add some photos to this post….

It’s another computer/tablet failure morning into afternoon Coffee Muses

I’ve spent the day, so far anyway, trying to iron out my tablet issues. This is after spending all day try to do the same yesterday. I finally gave it up and just reformatted the memory card that has been giving me trouble. So we’ll see how that works.

Since I was having trouble with the camera app on the Kindle, I went out with the “real” camera and took some shots from the front porch this morning. Since I was using the card reader to try and fix and then reformat the memory card from the Kindle I couldn’t pull the pictures off the camera’s card until that was complete. Just a long way of saying this post is late due to technical difficulties beyond my control.

Anyway, here are some photos of my world today…

It’s Chore Day And The Tablet Is On The Fritz Morning Coffee Muses

It’s early but the rains are already showing up today. Thunder is booming outside and the humidity is a thrice wiper today. Yesterday’s rains in the area started before noon and lasted pretty much thru the afternoon, hit or miss.  That’s the thing about the rains we’ve been having, they cover a large area but the actual thunderstorms are usually quite small. If they hit you directly, you get poured on… If they only brush past you get sprinkled on. But if they miss you by as little as a quarter of a mile, you stay dry even as the lightning flashes and and thunder rolls. It makes for interesting days.

I went out this morning to snap my normal photo and the Kindle is being screwy today. Every time I restart it and open the camera all I get is a black screen and then it freezes up. I am not having a great day with that. Finally got the camera to work but can’t get the pictures off the tablet. I do not know what the problem is but I’m tired of fighting it right now and I’ve eaten up way too much time today on this… So short muses, long time cussing… Back tomorrow.
