I had a lovely nap with my dogs and then it was a little bit cooler so I did a load of laundry and watered the surviving trees with the laundry water. My Mesquite tree died when we had the freeze back in February. I am surprised because it should have been able to take it but maybe the combination of dog chew damage, drought and cold did it in. I still have my Desert Willow, Mexican Bird of Paradise and Ironwood although they are all babies still.
I have enough water left for one load of laundry. A coworker is going out of town for the July 4th week and she asked me to look in on her cat and she said I could do laundry so I need to make it 3 more weeks. That should be pretty easy since I only need to do my own laundry every 2 weeks and now that all of my little puppies got adopted I don't have any dog laundry, at least not a lot.
I bought a faucet water filter to help with my stinky water. It works great but it cost $42 for the apparatus and an extra filter. Each filter is suppose to be able to handle 100 gallons. I still have 200 gallons in my jacuzzi that I was saving for laundry water but since I am so low on dog water I am going to use it for them. It was the water that I transported in the barrel that was used to carry hand soap but I think with the water filter it should be ok for them to drink.
Of course I am also hoping that it will rain within the next 3 weeks. Probably more towards the end of that 3 weeks. Monsoon season starts this week although there is no rain in the forecast. The weather people are often surprised by precipitation so I don't really trust them.
This week I should get my rent money. Hopefully it will be direct deposited instead of them sending a check like last time. I also hope to see my mortgage balance go to zero by Friday. I will be checking it online every day of course.
