It is hot and humid along with the storms that come through here in the summer time. When June 1st comes the weather channel always has possible thunderstorms all across the week and it does not end until November 30.

OUR TEMPS ARE ACTUALLY PRETTY NICE FOR THE WEEKEND BUT WILL BE HIGH AGAIN DURING THE WEEK---I JUST TURNED OFF THE AC AND OPENED THE DOORS THIS MORNING AS IT WAS COOLER OUTSIDE THAN INSIDE. I KNOW DH WILL COMPLAIN BUT I DON'T CARE! LOL
HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT RUNNING FANS AS WELL AS YOUR AC---I KEEP MINE SET HIGH AND WE RUN FANS SO IT FEELS A LOT COOLER AND FANS USE LESS POWER AND THE POWER COMPANY CAN'T CONTROL THEM---LOL
WATERED EVERYTHING AGAIN LAST NIGHT AND THINK I NEED TO WATER THE TOMATO PLANTS EVERYDAY UNTIL WE GET RAIN. SURE HOPE WE GET SOME NEXT WEEK BUT THE CHANCES ARE NOT REALLY THAT HIGH.

Didn't accomplish much today - too hot! We complained for months and months about the horrible winter we had and now it's too hot, lol. I was hoping that we'd have a nice gentle summer after that winter, but noooooo. I find it difficult with my heart condition when it's hot and humid. We have our electricity on conservation mode and the public utilities commission can lower our air during peak periods if there is too much of a drain on the hydro across the city - usually only a degree or two but I felt it today. My husband is retiring in Dec. so the last few days I've been working on our finances to see how we are going to make ends meet and today, just sitting at the computer I was sweating! It was 28 (82F) and humid today outside and 25 (77F) and humid inside - with the air on.

I just checked our forecast and it's to be 27 (80F) Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues. but feel like 33 (91F), 34 (93F), 36 (97F), and 37 (99F) - oh joy! My gardens are going to bake as we aren't to get rain until Wed and that's only a possible. I'll have to spend an hour and a half tomorrow watering at my place and about an hour at my daughter's on Sun. Fortunately we have opposite watering days - we are on water restrictions every summer and you can only water/wash cars, etc. on even numbered days of the month if your house number is an even # and the opposite for odd numbers.

Have a great weekend everyone and keep cool.

Lecates - hope all goes well with surgery on Mon.

We had rain he day before yesterday but it's been overcast yesterday and today keeping the soil a bit moister than under a blazing sun. Hot though! I seem to remember as a kid that when it rained, the air cleared and it cooled down - not so much anymore - often just as humid and sticky afterwards unfortunately.

I ordered a soil tester and it arrived today so tomorrow I'm hoping I'll be well enough to go out and test my soil. I have a lot of things I grew at other locations that won't grow here and am thinking the soil is too acidic. (I tried to do a bit of gardening today but I've been having headaches and nausea and i's worse bending over and pulling on things and such.

I now have about 3 flowers on my tomato plant and nothing on the cucumber vine yet. I've had some of the miniature day lilies in bloom for over a week but today the first bloom appeared on one of my full sized ones - a Red Cardinal lily with a beautiful red flower. The balsam seeds I started directly in the garden a couple of weeks ago are up a couple of inches (only an inch in some cases). I planted them in groups of 3 around parts of my new lily bed out front as it's a bit sparse right now with all new plants.

The 40-60 mm of rain you spoke of converts to about 2-2.5 inches. Some time ago, I googled inches to millimeters and saved it. Whenever I want to convert any measurement or temperature, etc., I just type in the new thing to be converted and it pops up in the saved file - makes conversions easy.

Get the plant food for azaleas---that should turn them blue---also, dig up the soil some and put some pennies around it.
I BOUGHT A HYDRANGEA TODAY FOR $3 ON CLEARANCE RACK AT LOWE'S---IT IS PINK---MY SOIL IS SANDY SO SHOULD STAY THAT WAY.
I COULD USE SOME OF THAT RAIN, TOO.

NANCY, YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!
THAT PART TIME SET UP SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA---WISH MY DH COULD DO THAT AND KEEP HIS BENEFITS---THEN WE COULD DO SOCIAL SECURITY AND WORK AND KEEP THE LOW COST FOR HEALTH CARE. MINE WILL DEFINITELY NEED TO FIND A PART TIME JOB WHEN HE DOES RETIRE---ONE BECAUSE WE COULD USE THE EXTRA MONEY AND BECAUSE HE WON'T LAST LONG IF ALL HE DOES IS SIT ON HIS CAN IN FRONT OF THE TV LIKE HE IS DOING NOW---GRRRRR
I MOWED LAST NIGHT AND ATE A WHOLE LOT OF DUST--ONLY THE SIDE YARD REALLY NEEDED CUTTING---SURE HOPE WE GET THE RAIN THEY HAVE PREDICTED FOR TODAY----50/50 CHANCE TODAY. AND IF WE DON'T GET ANY RAIN, I WILL NEED TO WATER EVERYTHING TONIGHT. HAVING TO WATER THE TOMATOES EVERY DAY WITH NO RAIN.

Nancy - the secondary school kids were done a week ago I think and the elementary are done at noon on Friday. I used to know all this stuff - I was the Executive Assistant to the Director of Education at our local school board for 22 years. But, that was before getting sick 10 years ago - or should I say sicker, lol.

Lecates - sounds like your DH is underfoot and to stay that way for awhile. Did he injure himself on the job?

My husband started working half time about a year ago. There were 2 of them working the warehouse in the small specialty lumber company here in Peterborough. Both of them agreed to go part-time so that a driver who wants to get off the road and work in the warehouse could do so (which is what my husband did about 10 years ago too) and they could hire another driver. Both my DH and his co-worker were to stay until this Dec. and then retire. Personally I think the Manager came up with this weird arrangement hoping the 2 would retire - neither is willing to learn how to use the computer for inventory and stuff and they really need it to connect to the sales and office ones. I've always been amazed they've been allowed to get away with it - everything is computerized. But, the other guy has been taking all the holidays due to him and such and announced the other day he is leaving on the 3rd of July. Really messes things up when only 2 full time in warehouse, 3 on trucks, 3 women in the office, the Manager and 2 salespersons. It's a huge company but several small set ups like here. None of the employees in any are unionized. They don't have the best of benefits but better than some. Even with my DH working only half time (one week Wed, Thurs and Fri and the next week Thurs and Fri) they have let us have his full prescription drug benefits - thank heavens! After all that drivel - my point is, he may have to go back to full time for 8 weeks until they can get the staff compliment back up and he would then be done and retired. But, again, they have said we can keep the drug benefit until 31 Dec! I've spent the last 2 days on an application and letter of explanation to the Government of Ontario for the Government's drug plan you can buy into. From what I've been able to determine, it will cost me about what I am paying now (about $200/mth) but rather than paying so much a month, it will be every 3 months - just have to budget a different way. This half time has been a good lead in for both of us to have him home all day.

Hoping it rains tomorrow so I don't have to water. I got in 45 mins of weeding this morning early while it was still cool (15C). It was 28C later.

My DGS is ill again. He has some small welts on his back and on his arm. Over the weekend he had a fever a few times and was very cold some others, and he complained a few times that his side hurt. I had him all day and took him to our Nurse practitioner this afternoon where my daughter met us. During the Nurse's examination, he got very upset and said he couldn't breathe. A look down his throat showed redness and swollen tonsils. Because of his difficulty breathing the Nurse told my daughter to get him to the Emergency Dept at the hospital. We gathered him up and went. To their credit it was one of the shortest visits to our hospital's emergency department. We were in and out within an hour. I've waited up to 12 and had to come back the next day! While in Triage my daughter explained what was going on and when asked I described what he had had to eat (or rather how little he had eaten) that day. He yelled out in pain and vomited all over the floor. The nurse was really impressed - not! He was later seen by a Dr. and after his examination he prescribed an antibiotic for possible strep throat - no concern over the welts or the pains in the side or the swollen tonsils - and off he went. So, I will have him tomorrow and probably Wed. My daughter seems to think he'll be back to school (he's in kindergarten) Wed after a full day of the antibiotic. I think she's nuts to send him back that soon. I've been with him while he would be contagious if I is Strep so I won't be able to go to Rehab at the Heart Clinic for another week - I'll get to finish it eventually. Whatever it is, hopefully it will be over soon and he'll once again be himself again.

WE DID GET A BIT OF RAIN HERE LAST NIGHT---NOT NEARLY ENOUGH UNLESS IT RAINED MORE AFTER WE GOT HOME---BUT AT LEAST THEY GOT SOME RAIN. AND GOING TO BE COOLER FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS THAN IT HAS BEEN---OF WHICH I AM VERY GRATEFUL AS I HAVE MY GD FOR THE NEXT 2 DAYS AND SHE LIKES TO PLAY OUTSIDE OR ON THE FRONT PORCH SO WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO THAT.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

been pretty hot here too. My husband came upstairs the other night to get a sweatshirt - he was cold sitting in the basement rec room with the air conditioning on. I was sitting on the livingroom floor in front of the fan - the air conditioning wasn't enough for me upstairs. We should switch rooms for the summer. The basement is too cold for me in the winter. One of the favourite exercise machines I like at my Heart Rehab has a fan where a front wheel on a bike would be and as you pedal and pull and push on the handles (like on an elliptical) it turns the fan on - your upper half is hot and bothered with the exercise and your legs are cold, lol. 3 of us are of an age at the Rehab and we are in as skimpy of clothes as is decent and they have the air on for us. The 2 men and the young nurse running the program are dressed more for spring or fall in layers.

Yesterday, I pulled up any of my Hens and Chicks that were more dead leaves than alive leaving a lot of holes in the bed where they were. This bed is about 1.5' deep and 8 or 10' long. I have others in my rock garden and along my patio but they were fine this spring. I also have some growing in a pot on my patio table. When it gets too crowded and some of them die off, I pull the dead ones out and sometimes some of the good ones, to make room and it fills in really quickly. The spots in the garden will also fill in on their own by the end of the season usually. When I pull my dead hens, it often brings the chicks with it but as I said, it leaves more room for others to grow. You might be able to pull your dead ones out without upsetting the others. If your good ones come up with the dead ones, yes, just replant - you don't need roots or good soil - they will grow in gravel with a bit of sand or dirt and all you have to do is stick one of the stems into the gravel/sand and they will root themselves. I have them in full sun and partial shade and I find mine do best with early morning sun and shade the rest of the day and I only water them a bit, usually with whatever's left in the hose when I hang it up.

Some of the gardeners here in Peterborough have a Facebook page (294 members) to share pics, give advice, get advice, plant swaps, seed swaps, etc. One of the members is dropping by this afternoon. I have a piece of a Coral Bells for her and we are going to tour my gardens. I jokingly told her that the #1 rule for touring my gardens is that you wear glasses that won't allow you to see things to be deadheaded or weeds, and if not, that you have to deadhead them or weed them, lol. She's a very knowledgeable gardener and usually one of the first to give another gardener the name of a mystery plant they have asked for information on.

I have buds on 2 of my Stella de Ora Daylilies in my new boulevard garden and the Balsam seeds I got at a recent plant/seed swap I planted in the same garden are sprouting. At the same swap, I also got 3 Brown Eyed Susans and they are also doing well in that garden. We decided to pull out the Yucca we planted in the middle of the garden as all the leaves were yellowed and drying up. We weren't surprised because when digging it up to transplant, the very large root snapped off and we only had a small chunk of it and a few of the tendril roots. But, to our greater surprise, there was new growth coming out of the stump of the root. We cut off the dead leaves and replanted the root so keep your fingers crossed.

It was terribly hot yesterday and very very humid - until about mid afternoon and then it was as if someone left the freezer door open! The temp dropped about 10 degrees. It has been cool all day today again - it was great for getting out and doing some weeding. My tendonitis in my rotator cuff might disagree with that statement but it was so nice to not be stinking hot trying to do that chore. Even with the cool temps and wind all that bending and lifting and such had me warm enough.

Lecates - how did the graduation go?
Nancy... - you are right - what a mess! Almost everything I've worked on has been convoluted the last couple of weeks - I sympathize!

I stopped into a garden centre at one of our local grocery stores today. They always have beautiful healthy plants - unfortunately for me - I have no willpower - I came home with 2 annuals, 4 perennials and a garden ornament. I spent a full hour planting, watering and weeding afterwards. It was supposed to rain this afternoon - 80% chance but nothing materialized. I would have gladly welcomed it even while I was standing out in the garden. It was only 21C (70F) here today but there was 73% humidity - ugh! I should have lost about 5 lbs in fluids - if only, eh! I was so glad my DH and I went to the early polls on Sun. and didn't have to stand in a line-up tonight at a polling booth for our provincial elections. I'm nervous about the election outcome. There are 3 parties that I pay attention to and every one of them had a major issue I am strongly opposed to. Makes making a decision very hard. Often I find I like a local candidate but not their party or vice versa. I should turn on the tv as I'm sure there are reports in by now on how the voting went - they won't be final yet but I'll have a better idea.

I HAVE BEEN MIA FOR A SEW DAYS, BETWEEN PLANNING FOR MY DAUGHTER'S 25th ANNIVERSARY AND TRYING TO SETTLE PROBLEMS, I HAVE HAD MY HANDS FULL.

RESTAURANT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RESERVED FOR 6pm ON SATURDAY THE 21st,, WHEN MY OTHER DAUGHTER CALLED TO CONFIRM HOW MANY WOULD BE ATTENDING , THERE HAD NOT BEEN ANT RESERVATION MADE,, SHE HAD CALLED THE WRONG RESTAURANT TO RESERVE AT THE BEGINNING..IN THE MEANTIME ALL GUESTS HAD THEIR INVITATIONS WITH THE ADDRESS OF THE RESTAURANT ON IT ALREADY,, HOW DO YOU
CHANGE EVERYTHING 10 DAYS AHEAD,, SO MY GRAND DAUGHTER DECIDED TO STAY AT SAME PLACE AND MY DAUGHTER RESERVED THERE, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THERE WAS A SEATING SYSTEM FOR SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, ONE SEATING AT 5pm AND THE OTHER AT 8pm.. INVITATIONS WERE STATED FOR 6pm. WHAT A MESS, WE HAVE TO BE OUT OF THE RESTAURANT BY 7.45

SO WE HAD TO FIND SOMEWHERE FAST TO ENTERTAIN THE GUESTS FOR A WHILE AS SOME ARE EVEN COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN,, IT WILL EITHER BE AT MY DAUGHTER'S (WHICH I DON'T THINK IS RIGHT AS SHE IS THE ONE BEING CELEBRATED) OR HERE, AS THEY SAY " A MOTHER'S WORK IS NEVER DONE"

RAINING HERE BUT WE DID HAVE 3 DAYS OF SUMMER BUT WE ARE BACK TO FALL

Most days it is humid here in FL and I always love it when winter comes because I can turn off the AC and open the window. Can't do that in the summer because it is too hot and humid.

When I got home from my hour and a half in the pool, I quickly went to work in the garden and got a good half hour in before my 5 yr old DGS arrived with his Chickenpox for the day. I finished weeding the southern half of the rock garden and spread more mulch where needed. I was drenched by the time I was done and it was only 8:30 am. It was only about 18C (64F) but very humid. I broke down and turned on the AC when the house was 27C (81F) after the cooling down overnight and windows open to let the cool air in. We keep it at 24C (75F) but even that was a relief. I think the outside temp today got up to 28C (82F) but 70% humidity.

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT, LECATES! OUR RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS IN THE 70%S!!! SOUPY TO SAY THE LEAST. HIGHS YESTERDAY WAS MID 80'S. WE GOT A RUMBLE OF THUNDER FROM A STORM PASSING PRETTY CLOSELY AND 1.1" RAIN. WE REALLY NEEDED THAT RAIN! TODAY TO GO INTO THE UPPER 80'S AND TOMORROW, MAYBE 90!! SORRY TO ALL YOU WHO ARE USED TO THESE KINDS OF TEMPS AND HIGHER, BUT THIS IS NOT WHAT I CONSIDER MY CUP OF TEA, AS IT WERE!! YUP, I'M TOO COLD IN WINTER AND TOO HOT IN SUMMER AND THE WORST IS THAT THE CALENDER DOESN'T EVEN CALL THIS SUMMER YET! WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF WE COULD HAVE AN ACTUAL 3 MONTHS OF EACH SEASON... FOR REALS???
WELL, WE HAVE A CAR DOWN. WELL, ACTUALLY 2. DH'S WORK VAN BROKE DOWN ABOUT A MONTH BEFORE HE GOT SICK. IT'S STILL NEEDING FIXED. A FEW WEEKS AGO MY CAR DEVELOPED A "BATTERY NOT CHARGING" PROBLEM, PLUS THE A/C NEEDS RECHARGED, SO CAN'T USE IT. SO, DH IS BACK TO WORK AS TOLERATED, BUT HAS TO USE THE ONLY CAR RUNNING! DUH. SO HERE WE SITS WHILE HE WORKS. IN THE A/C AT LEAST! ALL THAT RAIN YESTERDAY HAS EVERYTHNG STAYING TOO WET TO MOW, TOO! SORRY ABOUT THE COMPLAINING. GUESS I'M JUST FEELING PRETTY LOW AT THE MOMENT. NOT TO WORRY! THIS TOO, SHALL PASS! Y'ALL BE WELL!

Yesterday overcast, cool, few sprinkles; today more rain predicted. Finally, was able to put in some plants, now if we could just cut hay. Looks like it is finally clearing off. Now I can complain about the heat. emoticon

beautiful day here today - 24C (75F) but it clouded over. I spent an hour and a half watering this morning and of course it started to rain a short while ago. Mind you, what I've seen so far wouldn't be enough rain to fill a thimble. Our soil is so sandy here that it doesn't hold the moisture so we put another layer of mulch on most of the gardens. We ran out when we got to the 13th bed - the rock garden. I don't put much on it anyway because a lot of low plants and its on a slope so it tends to end up at the bottom on the grass. To hear my DH you'd think it did it just to annoy him when he's trying to cut the grass, lol. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I'll probably spend the coming week with my DGS who is almost 6 and at present suffering with chickenpox (even after immunization).
