My goodness, for over a week we have had crashing towering BIG thunderstorms each day long about noon to an hour later. Strong sustained winds and powerful gusts..sideways rain that looks like a huge gusher. Lightening and ear splitting cracks of thunder. The winds were so strong they bowled over my tomato plant each day. I don't know how much longer it can take it. (Carrie, that cello tape worked! Saved the branch) But then, my "crop" isn't as good as I had hoped for. I will try another type next year. I only got 2 very small peppers out of the pepper plant too. NO idea what happened with either. They are fed and cared for the same as I always have done with success...until this year.
I am still working out. Enjoying it and getting the benefits. There is one person there however..a hired trainer that I wish would simply not even notice or speak when I come in. We just don't gee and haw well.
The oldest will be here this weekend and that will please Miss Katie Isabella. Extra lovins and kissies. I'm thinking BBQ chicken and yellow rice..with perhaps green peas for supper. Yum. He'll have his usual Saturday morning breakfast of bacon and eggs. Not sure if there will be biscuits yet though. If so, grape jam on them.
I quit feeding the birds for awhile hoping that if that stranger cat was coming by for a quick feathered meal he would see his gravy train done went offen th' tracks.
Hoping to go over the mountains in a couple of weeks assuming all is well both here and there. It's been almost a YEAR since I went with no other agenda as with this year, each time I went, we got in the car and drove 4 more hours toward east Carolina so as to visit the grandson in military school. NOW I can actually relax a bit! Go to uptown Charlotte and to Matthews, Pineville and visit all my favorite stores that I haven't been able to get to in about a year due to the other agenda.
The cherries weren't good this year that were offered in any of the stores here. Slightly softish and not very sweet. Saved me bundles tho I was disappointed as I would have bought pounds and pounds and foundered on them for a few weeks. This time, one bag..that was it.
I took this picture at the arboretum.
Coming to see ya.
