In the Meanwhile….

I have cleared my back deck of blooms, in anticipation of whatever comes north from Florence. I just hate to waste pretty blossoms to torrents of rain.

The rest of my deck resembles a spinach or romaine patch. Granted, summer is still here for another ten days, but the overcast weather, drizzle and rain lets you know fall is on its’ way.

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are due down here for a visit. I am hoping the weather holds and an enjoyable time is had for all.

Hot,Hot,Hot

You probably think the weather here is nice….

Sure, if you like humidity at the major urban congested city level.

My hydrangea is hanging in by a wing and a prayer. Some of the other flowers look as if they need a trip to ICU.We had two nice nights of comfortable sleeping. Now, as of 4:45pm, the humidity could be a zillion, for all Kasia and I care.

Come on October!

Keep it Coming…

It would appear that they are looking for yet another Nor’easter coming my way.

If memory serves you correctly, yes you did see the above picture in a prior post, dealing with the current Nor’easter.We aren’t proud, either: we’d take snow.

I think it was last winter when my Zush was still with us that was when we had some snow. It’s a case of anything to keep the off-season, the off season.***chuckling***

Hope springs eternal!

Back Up

I had been down for a little bit, but now that I am a little better, and take daily Zircam, guess who’s going to work tomorrow? You’ve got it: me!

I have to admit that I enjoyed being around while the weather has been spring-like.Tomorrow, of
course, the front is due to come through and I’ll be with the kids.I have to admit I miss when I am not in on a regular basis, but on the other hand, working during the Titanic of Flu seasons, well, sometimes I was happy to hide out here.

Remember your umbrellas, gang, and stay dry!

Happy St. Valentine’s Day

It’s St. Valentine’s day and I am hoping all of you had a wonderful day and great evening. Kasia and I are here and we are a little tired, as the weather was pretty good today, so we gals did over a mile walking today.

Jim has to work tonight but we will make up St.Valentine’s day on his day off.Technically,though, every day is St.Valentine’s day when you are married.

Oh to be in Antarctica…

… if it would get rid of this hack of mine.

I know my nephew, Matt, among others, are strong advocates of needing cold weather to freeze out the germs. I agree with this, on the whole. Since we have had minimal cold weather, here is my current ” boyfriend “.


You, no doubt, recognize the cough medicine bottle. I try to take it at night, since it has codiene in it. The prescription says take every four hours as needed. I have been off of dairy, drinking tea, lemonade and water, and yet the hacking persists. I usually have a cinnamon head candy in my mouth to try to quiet the cough. They just don’t warn you about a million hot showers and anelgesic balm for aching muscles from coughing. Personally, I’ ll wait for tomorrow and try coconut rum and pineapple juice.

Long Night’s Journey into Day

It was a crappy night. Really. 

It was definitely an” I’ll walk a mile for a Camel”cough that kept me up. So much so that I am waiting for a 10:15 appointment with the nurse practitioner. I really put this on two things- the weather and Jim picking up a germ from school and bringing it home.

The girls, unfortunately, are out back on the deck, enjoying the nice weather. I don’t think walking is on the agenda for me today.

Maybe tomorrow….
