Beautiful Sunny Day

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

The bad weather has finally stopped. Unfortunately many people still have flooding.
Not much to talk about but have a few pics.
My madarda finally bloomed one bloom. I am hoping to get more at same time. The hummingbirds are suppose to like them

  Hi Eleni.........
How interesting that you mention your Monarda and Hummingbirds. When I was watering tonight, I was down in my lower garden (the one that has almost a third planted with Monarda). I was watering with a fine spray and totally relaxed and still, when a Hummingbird flew through the spray. It must have felt good, because he kept going back and forth. If I could have held still longer, who knows how long he would have kept it up. They are so beautiful.........His colors in the water looked like a rainbow. Speaking of rain.........None and None in the forecast. Tomorrow the temperature could be almost 105 and very high humidity. The local High Schools are opening for cooling centers for those without air conditioning. People are being urged to stay home. I am glad that my PT was today so I don't have to venture out.

Take care and I am glad that your rain and wind are over.

    I love your flowers and the pictures Eleni. The sun is shining here today too and sure lifts the spirits. Today is warm but the weatherman says hot, hot and humid starting tomorrow. Not looking forward to that. ((HUGS))

I have never seen a ginger plant before. Interesting looking. Do you use ginger off of it in cooking?

Tired of Rain and Wing

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

The wind and rain is almost non stop.Altho not as much rain but so many places are still flooded.Many people being evacuated. We are good as we are up high. This is worse flooding I have ever seen.Water is as high as 5 feet in some places. Insurance costs will be so high next year many will not be able to afford it.
I am having a hard time with night eating which is not new.But I have been doing so good til night time.

    Hope the rain moves out over water soon. So thankful you are high and dry. Feel for those who are flooding!
We, on the other hand, could use some moisture, hot (107degrees today, 98 right now at 10:15 PM) and so dry. We are under water rationing.

Try to do well tonight with your calories as you will be glad you did tomorrow. emoticon

  Hi Eleni.........
I hope that your wind and rain end soon. We had a lot of flooding the summer of 2008 and I remember how scarey it was to hear that MORE rain was heading our way when we didn't know what to do with the rain we had. We actually had Elizabeth's moniter next to our sump pump in the basement so we could hear if it stopped pumping. We only had minutes to hook up to a generator if the pump went out!

Ken is gone on a fishing trip for a week, so I stocked up on lots of fruit today. Evening eating is my worst nemisis!!!

Take care.......
Patti

  Hi Eleni.........
Thank You so much for sharing your family pictures. It helps to get to know you even better and I like that.
We learned today that Wednesday through Friday, we will be getting record high temperatures and humidity and NO rain in sight. I will take just a little rain from you. I know that you are getting way more than you want or need.
Take care and stay safe.

Hope you stay safe from the winds and rain. We could use some of the moisture, but don't really want that much. We started water rationing today. Can only water two days a week. It is so HOT...time is 6:18 PM and the temp. is 105, however, we have not had the extreme heat like last year .
Have a great evening and stay safe...

Rain and Wind

Sunday, June 24, 2012



This is just some of rain and wind.
It is raining even harder now and trees are really dancing big time.
I did release 1# weight this week .I am happy with that. I will release more weight next week for sure.
Bill is putting tile down in bathroom.Maybe I will make my soup later or maybe just go back to bed.Bed sounds good with sound of rain ouside.

    We had tons of wind and rain too. I was worried about you when I heard about the flooding up your way. I'm glad you explained what that banging was with Bill working on the bathroom. I was like...what the heck is that? I thought it was the wind banging on your house...happy it was just handyman Bill! emoticon

  Hi Eleni..........
Good-bye to another pound!!! emoticon
I don't want your winds, but I would love some of your rain. We are approaching draught conditions. With all of the gardens we have, it takes us over an hour each day just to keep our plants alive........they aren't really growing or blooming more.....they are just staying alive!!! I don't want to see our electric bill for this month!!!
Bill is really accomplishing a lot with the computer room floor done and now the bathroom. If he is like Ken, he likes a rainy day to get inside things done.
I hope you had a nice rainy day rest.

Hope you are well.
