Happy Labor Day!

It was a nice morning as it has been for a while now. Fred and I wandered around the yard for awhile doing repeat weed patrol. Swept up the car port area and  hung a wind chime in that area.

Dusted the house and did some minor cleaning up. Then didn't do much else but read as the heat was on for the day.

Barb stopped by this evening to show me her black eye and stitches from her surgery to remove a cancer cell. This is the first time she had such a bad one. There is still one more just at her hair line. Hope that one isn't as bad.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.

I fell asleep in my chair so here I am now But......

Hot Again

Slept late this morning again but really late this time. I peeked at the clock with one eye and it was 6:15. Jumped up and hit the bathroom brushing teeth and trying to get dressed all the same time. It was a riot. I called for Fred and he came charging down the hall like a speeding bullet. I opened the door and he went flying out poor guy.

We didn't get the rain they said we would get so I watered the plants and walked around doing weed patrol. It was really muggy out again.

I was able to jump in the shower and get properly dressed.  Did some reading really enjoying this book. I'll fill you all in later.

And that's about all for today.

Guess I Had Good One

We were supposed to have an 80% chance of rain today or did they mean 80 drops?  The street never got wet. But the temps were just awesome. I sat out on the porch for about 3 1/2 hrs this afternoon reading and playing with Fred. 

It started to thunder around 1 pm far off in the distance and the sky was dark grey south of here. As the afternoon wore on the thunder was closer and the breeze was just great.  But as it got even closer Fred wasn't to happy. He doesn't really get all crazy or whiny but you can tell he isn't real happy. So I let him go in the house and I stayed reading out doors. It started to sprinkle but that was it. The thunder moved on so I let Fred back out and into the yard so he could take care of business.

I finally realized it was well after 5 and I was getting hungry so we can in. 

I would love to have more of these days but looks like we will be in triple digits again in a few days. 8~(

Will It Rain?

It sure was humid today and it looked like we were going to get a good storm.

I went to visit Barb for a little while this morning. I told her it was really nice until they pulled in last evening  and brought this nasty weather back.

Then did some lunch with a few ladies from the park. We hoped we wouldn't get rained on. Nope not a drop.

If someone gives you gift cards always check the expiration dates. I know some one who lost 2 $25. ones this month. I really can't see how that can be legal, after all someone paid the money for those things and now it was like throwing the money out the window.

Still waiting for the rain.

Another Great Sunday

Picked up my daughter Tracy for out usual Sunday morning breakfast and a little shopping. When we came out of the store it was HOT! I asked if there was anything else she wanted to do. But it was way to hot and we were ready to call it a day.

When I came home I figured I would do some house choirs and put a turkey loaf in the crock pot. Then just sat and crocheted for a while.

My friend Barb called and they were only about 25 min. from home after being gone for the summer.

Welcome Home!

Had Unexpected Visit

Not much was going on the weather was good again. It was a little warmer. 

Called Rose to see what she has been up too. Said she bought a new chair for the patio so I went to check it out.  It is a beautiful rocker make out of bent woods really comfy too. We sat out for a little while but it was too hot for Rose so we went in and just sat for awhile. I came home and had lunch. I started to clean up the kitchen and I got a text from my grandson Anthony to see what I was doing and was it cool to stop by. Of course! He said he just got off the bus and was walking toward my place, so I jumped in the truck and picked him up. He had some exciting news about his job and new things coming his way. I was so proud to hear this news. His boss and the wife really like him and his work. They are planning an expansion for their business and want Anthony to work with them. He is so happy because it is something he really wants to get into. 

He messed around with the lap top his ex threw or what ever she did with it. But was running out of time. I told him he could mess with it another time. He has worked really hard in this heat and he is just as happy with the way things are going. Of course the big exception is that broom Hilda  he was with and missing his son. But hopefully he can get that fixed in court.

Anyway we had a great visit it was good to see him and share what ever he had to tell me.

Better Day

Yesterday was just a rotten day. Very Frustrating! So I just didn't bother to post. While the weather was really nice the rest of it .... well you know.

Today was also a nice day. I had to go to Walgreen's down the road because my store was out of my medications but at least they found them for me and it wasn't all that far away. While I was there I turned in 2 more but they only had one. The girl said she would order the other one and I told her not to bother it wasn't all that important.

I had some shopping to do so I figured I would do the big Walmart but couldn't find a parking space. So I drove on to the Neighborhood Market Place instead. Picked up a few items like fresh fruit that where not on my list but it sure looked good and the prices low. I was looking at a fruit that looked like a plum but it was kind of fuzzy. The produce guy was standing near and I asked what it was, he said it was a cross of an apricot and a plum and that they were really good. So I bought them. And yes they were sooooo good and juicy. If you find them try them.

The other day I was shredding some paper and something made a terrible sound, I reversed it but couldn't figure out what was wrong so I turned it off and left the rest for another day. This was the day I was picking through some of the stuff that I reversed and found a penny stuck in the paper. DO NOT PUT PENNIES in a shredder it doesn't like it one bit. While it still works it sure sounds bad.  

My planets must not be in a good line. My other problem was I backed into the A/C unit today. It just moved a little and thankfully it is working just fine. I always wanted it to be in the backyard but not moved quite this way.

I think I may need a life break or something.

Here it is another weekend already, you all be safe and I am staying home and not using any machinery of any kind.
