The good stuff:
Finished watching the last episodes of the first season of 'Star Trek: Enterprise' today, which I've been working my way through using my Netflix account for some weeks now. And what a treat! I've enjoyed it immensely, and I'm eager to get into season 2 come September, and not just because of the sadistic double cliffhanger season 1 ends with!
It appears the worst is past with the current heat streak, and the forecast is looking welcoming for when my mom comes next Friday. Hopefully the humidity will have broken by then as well!
