Good morning. Down to 52° here last night and likely its gonna be a long time before we are down that far again. The mid west heat should begin moving in today and increase the next few days. Oh well I would much rather have the heat then winter. We found out yesterday that Saturday we will have a new store manager. Hate that but I hear the guy coming in is a good guy so that makes it not quiet as bad. This morning I need to go to town for a couple things and if I have time after that want to do a couple things outside before going back to work this afternoon. Have a great day and just be thankful its not winter.
Good morning. It was 68º last night. Yesterday was not so bad because the humidity was low, but the heat and humidity are moving back in. Sorry, Steve, but I can't be thankful that it's not winter. I deal with winter better than summer. Of course, we rarely have snow, or even below freezing temps for long periods.
Sorry you are losing your store manager, but sounds like you are getting another good one.
Ann, we are a small church with a small budget, and still do bookkeeping the old way. I thought about getting a program to keep up with income and expenses, but the church treasurer at our sister church which is a larger church said he still has to prepare the treasurer's reports the old-fashioned way. It doesn't take long to record the deposits and checks by hand.
I'm taking the youngest DGD to get her allergy shots this morning, then we are going to return books to the library and I'll likely buy their lunch at McDonald's. I'm letting the oldest DGD drive my car so I can take her to get her driver's license next week. She needs to get familiar with the car before she tries for her license. We are going to District softball game in Enterprise late afternoon, and I will let her drive down there. It's about 45 miles from here.
Hello, GW, Gayle, Gary and any others who might drop in.
Y'all have a great day!
Good morning, Steve-am thankful it's not winter,but not thankful for this crazy 100+ this week-end!like Autumn best. Jo Ann- will GD be giving you more grey hairs driving or is she a good learner? i should stop at the Library but they only open at 10am then it's too hot! daughter Gillian and I went to visit Church we used to go to in 70"s, only 37 attendance now, use to be full! been for a walk and back early today.hello to others try to keep cool ones in hot areas,Mary in Ky 10.05am
I'll complain about this very too hot weather. One good thing, being stuck inside for the most part, I do get things done in the house. So not all bad. I hope my tomato plants, or at least the best one, survive this heat. I try to keep them watered enough.
Mary, what happens if you drink more than 1/2 can of gingerale at lunch. lol You are very disciplined. I should be more so.
Back to the subject of blueberries - I remember blueberry pies from my childhood blueberry days. Also had wild Concord grapes and my mother made grape conserve every year. Mary, next time I'm in Big Lots will have to look and see if currant jam is available. Don't think I've ever had any.
Everyone have a nice day, and Jo Ann enjoy the District softball game - hope you can sit in some shade.
Mary, if you will take a good look at my profile picture you will see that it's not possible for me to have any more gray hair. (I know you did not mean that literally.) But Megan is a very careful driver. Let's just hope she stays that way.
GW, we will get under one of the canopies that some of the parents set up. I have bottles of water in the freezer that we will take with us, and I have an old-fashioned hand fan.
Good afternoon!! Hope everyone is somewhere cool! It's 99 here. I think the humidity is beginning to creep up somewhat. Probably will be too hot to sit outside this evening.
Not a lot going on around here. I washed a couple loads of clothes and have another almost ready to hang out. It's a little late but I think the last load will get dry without a problem.
Guess that's all for now.
Afternoon everybody. We started out at 85º at 9:30 this morning& didn't quite make the triple digits, but almost @97º. The humidity wasn't bad & I have been outside working in the yard all day. Moving sprinkler from spot to spot, weeding. cleaning beds, planning next year's garden, etc;
I went outside just before dark yesterday evening & was shocked to see my roses covered with J. Beetles. They haven't been very bad so far. I guess they all arrived at once. There were 4-6 on each bloom !!~ I've never seen them like that in the evening. You can bet I picked them all off. This morning, when I usually "pick" not a single one. I put a small dish of beer under my B'fly bushes, trying to figure out what is eating the leaves on them. Today I saw a couple of plants in my front bed that something (same thing?) has been eating so put a dish out there too.
Not much else to tell. I still have the bed down the sider of & across the back of the back yard to weed. I'll do that tomorrow when they are in some shade. I forgot to tell you when I stopped by my BFF's house the other evening she gave me this big potted palm tree so now I have that sitting in a corner of the back yard. She said she was didn't have any more room for it in her GH this winter. Like I do? LOL But I like Palms. I've I had several & they end up dying eventually. Hopefully I can keep this one going.
Some glads from my yard this year
