We've had a lot of storms in Florida these days, but I am no longer afraid of storms.

That's really something considering one of my first nights here, I was in the hallway with the dog hoping that the tornado (which was on the ground near me) wasn't going to hit the house!

I jump in the pool between storms. Today, I did 30 minutes of laps in the pool. That is a first for me. My endurance is improving. I was a bit stressed due to some issue, and doing laps really gets all the stress out of me. Happy!

Hope everyone is doing well.

nice this morning .. 90 but humidity was lower and had a breeze- went to farmers market and its just up the street from the marina park - so walked around that for 2 miles - have figured out how much by the fitbit .. they also got rockers back to sit and rock and look at the blackwater river... so nice and relaxing ... they even use locks on the chairs but people steel them .. sad .. someone always has to ruin things for others
got tomatoes , cabbage and garlic - just using a 5.00 voucher , there was only 1 man that took them and last year got a tomato that had a store sticker on it .. not happy - but now there was several stands that took them - so happy with the garlic cloves :0)

. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hot, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

Marty, I'm glad to hear that you got some "me" time in. We all need it every now and again to recharge our "batteries". Hope things are going okay.

Hope y'all are staying cool and hydrated! This heat wave is just cranking itself up more and more everyday.

I went on a short hike, to Alice Lake Provincial Park earlier this month, I left Noni in the kitchen to serve our guess after I had prepared the meal. This me time was so needed.
I brought our little MSR camp stove to make tea and heat up some chili down by the river.
All in all I spent three hours just relaxing soaking up some sun and unwinding mentally.







The baby was left home too

Have fun on your excursion! I hope you don't get too hot and tired in this insane heat.

Marty, good to hear from you again. Noni did a wonderful job on Mom's birthday cake. Sounds like you've been really really busy. I hope you get a few days off in a row soon so you can get out and enjoy yourself.

Take care everyone. If you're in this insane heat, stay cool, stay hydrated!

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

family

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

At 10:30am we had 91 degrees and a heat index of 115. It's awful out and I'm afraid to look at the current heat index/temps.
Just trying to relax and recuperate from the heat exhaustion - I think I was getting seriously close to heat stroke last Wednesday. I've had that happen a couple times so I should be more vigilant but I wasn't paying attention to my body.
They've been saying afternoon or evening thunderstorms every day. Unfortunately the other day all it did was rain long enough to drive the humidity up even more. I seriously need to water my outdoor plants.
I think the hottest heat index I've been in was a 123. I was in Arizona on a day it was actually 123 and it was nothing like our heat at all because they had a dry heat.
Hope everyone stays cool. Take care. Have a good week. emoticon

I had that happen in my old car! It fell off while driving down the highway. No fun there!
Our upcoming forecast is looking even worse because we'll be in triple digits by the end of the week. I know when I last looked it was 94 with a heat index of 108 this afternoon so I quit looking. It was terrible when I went out to the mailbox. The air was so close I could hardly breathe.
Still trying to fully recouperate from last Wednesday's heat exhaustion and last Friday's severe migraine. My body still feels drained!

There should be some way that people who can't afford the fresh foods could get them cheaper or free. Everyone around here is all about how much money they can make off something. When it's higher than the grocery store you have to wonder. Plus they say they grow it but sometimes it looks or tastes like it's shipped in.

Well, the weather guy here said no let up in the heat wave. The actual air temps are going up and the indexes could be over 105 every single day. Hopefully we'll get a break. I miss being able to get outside and do stuff but I can't tolerate our heat.

Hope everyone has a great week!

The weather channel is reporting unusually high temps for this time of the year. I guess the real "hot" summer hit early!

I've never tried patty pan squash because I didn't know what to do with it. Our farmers markets suck. Same stuff: tomatoes, cukes, peppers. Nothing exciting or new ever and expensive.

Oh yeah when I'm gone in September and January I will have internet while I'm in Florida, just not at my brother's so I plan on taking my laptop so I can connect with everyone at night or just whenever I have time.

Just realized that I hadn't checked in since I got home. Geez, I'm so far behind. Been a rough week. Got overheated on Wednesday after taking my 89 year old Aunt to the grocery store. Appointment with my therapist Thursday who said it sounded like I had heat exhaustion. I've no doubt about that. I was still feeling feeling the effects on Friday when I had a major migraine hit. Still have it but I am feeling a little better.
My calories and exercise have been a bust this week.

Doing pretty well here now. Had a ginormous flare. I'm on the upswing now.

Hope everyone enjoys their fourth of July!

Yes is doing a number on my body this month. All these curve balls life is throwing at me, are taking their toll.
I'll try to get back here before I leave again but if I don't I'll try to check in via my phone, which doesn't always get signal at my brothers house in the mountains.
I hope everyone else is doing okay.

Love your photos Marty. I wish I had such wonderful places as you have nearby. I'm back in NE TN right now. Supposed to go home Saturday. Then it all starts again June 19th. Then again September 3rd. I'm feeling all those hours in the car still. Plus now I'm at higher altitudes than I'm used to so my breathing is harder. Needless to say my asthma is acting up.

I'm off three days - three days ... Yes YES
So far I am up early - laundry started - coffee made - cooked eggs for Noni and me. I wrote two postcards and I'm going to place my food order in for Tuesday delivery.. ( ok that is work - but once I do it I don't have to think about it again - do I ?)

Then the decisions of what to do on this long weekend -- hoping to go on a bike ride in Vancouver area some where..
- not too warm or sunny where I am right now...

Sunday was my turn to work - Noni was off... I was to have the whole day off on Saturday but I couldn't leave Noni all alone so I worked in the morning to help her out then I went to the Vancouver area... Sunday after lunch was finished I was off, so Noni and I went to Stanley Park to ride together.. Surprisingly what one can do with your free time if you actually get moving...

It always startles me because even though I live in the New Madrid Fault Zone, I never think about earthquakes. At first my son thought someone's meth lab blew up, lol. I thought it was thunder.
When I was in LA back in the early 80s I was so afraid that they would have a big earthquake while I was there. Especially the day I was on the 37th floor of an office I was visiting.
I leave tomorrow to go to brother #1 house. Then next Friday night we leave for Florida to help our brother with Daddy. He has to have another CT scan of his head to check the status of his brain bleed. The neurosurgeon office cancelled his Dr appointment because the doctor was going to be out of the office. So they said if no changes and no symptoms or problems they may not need to see him again. So what I'll be doing beyond may 21st is up in the air.

What a wake up call! Just getting into a good sleep and boom! I thought it was thunder when it woke me up. Looked at radar and nothing. My son came in and said earthquake! Then I realized that rumble was the earth! Shook the house good. Turns out the epicenter was about 10 miles from my house. Preliminary report was 3.5 centered 8.7 miles NNW of LaCenter, KY near the Ohio River here in Ballard County. It was a "Shallow" earthquake about 14km. Now I'm wired! What a way to start May!

Big hugs y'all! My poor baby is going blind too so I know what you are going through. She follows me everywhere and I have to watch out so I don't trip over her.

I've been super stressed out this week. Thankfully tonight I'm finally calming down some. Had internet and phone issues all day. My cell phone was giving me trouble too (darn you Verizon) so when my son got home, he got everything straightened out.
I hate waking up with a migraine - ruins the day. Fortunately I have learned that I don't always need to take medication for them (can't because of rebound headaches which are even worse). The migraine wasn't really bad but I was just all out of sorts. I laid down and finally took a nap which helped. When I woke up I wasn't dizzy or sick so I could take a shower. That helped too. So now I'm trying to catch up with my computer stuff before bedtime.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Take care! emoticon

I had one migraine once, and that was enough for me. I went thru a period of sudden intense pain in my head. I had sinus and trigeminal nerve problems. It was very painful, but not as bad as the migraine!

Larry is blind too. He is barking....I am at his beck and call. I wanted to say more, like thx for the nice team goodie, but I must go.

Yeah, I have had migraines for over 50 years. They're chronic now. I see the neurologist the 28th. My last appointment had to be rescheduled because of my Dad's fall. So next week is the neurology and on May 9th is my psych appointment then off to my brother's house. Hopefully he's doing better and will be feeling better then. I told him he was my beach walking buddy and I needed him. My sumatriptan (Imitrex) is one of those meds I hold off on because you get 9 pills a month - actually you're only supposed to take no more than 2 doses (2 pills) in a week or 4 in a month. So I put it off. My last neuro appointment we were going to talk about adding other meds but that hasn't happened yet so we'll see. I discovered one of my psych meds was a daily migraine trigger and my last daily migraine med actually made them worse so I'm off both of those. I'm sure my allergies are to blame for some of my current migraines too. That and stress - worrying about my Dad and both brothers, worrying about paying bills, worrying about meds, worrying about my migraines, my dog's driving me crazy (she's 14, going blind and is a walking fanatic - she follows me everywhere, I have to watch it or I'll fall over her). I'm not sleeping good either, so that's not helping. I'll figure it out. Wish I'd have another one of those multi year lulls in the migraines - it's overdue!
Hope everyone's doing okay. Allergy season is horrible this year. Needless to say that my allergies and asthma aren't any fun right now.
I know everyone is tired of me saying I have a migraine. Some people don't understand migraines and think they're just a headache but they're not. Plus everytime I see the retina specialist I have migraines for about a week afterward from them dilating my eyes and shining in those bright lights.
I'll live. I've made it this far.

Great pics!

I am taking a break from walking, as it appears I probably have knee tendonitis. I did a lot of jumping jacks in the pool and it flared up my knee. I never had that happen before.

Hope everything is well with you ladies and gents!

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

What amazing photos! Marty you sure know where to hang out for some down time. And the wild life that you're meeting along the way is inspirational.

Enjoy.
