This is my banter for Friday September 27th…

Hello all you wonderful peoples:: I hope everyone had a great Thursday and you are all home safe and sound.. My day was wet as the rain fell not once but several times.. At one point there were thunderstorms with hail.. “Ya, I thought Hail??” I sure did not see any in my part of town, but I did hear the thunder roaring above.. With all the degeneration of our planet, the weather is beginning to not know what to do next.. I think Mother Nature is running on a wing and a prayer.. Very unpredictable.. I would hate to see what happens when the polar caps melt away.. I read an article about Iceland, and how the ice is melting there…. It is now causing a run off that in the future will raise sea level three inches.. That may not seen to be much, but it will make a big difference.. All this melting has been caused by the sweltering heat in Europe this summer.. I don’t know about you but this is not good for any of us.. I hope some how the planet will revert back to what it was long ago..Β  Well, I’m on my way.. Take care and be safe.. Till Monday.. Be kind to others.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Friday September 20th…

Howdy everyone:: Today is a carbon copy of yesterday.. Light breezes, and warm sun.. I noticed that the back yard is beginning to look shabby.. The fall season shabby.. Grant you there are some plants that defy the fall season.. At least there are still pretty colors to see out there.. No matter what I find the colors soothing.. The evening is nice and cool which will make sleeping quite nice.. Today I sat on the deck and one of those small cars went by.. The kind of cars that sound like they should be on a race track.. Well, the guy slowed then shifted down a gear and made the car bark.. I mean really bark.. It was so loud it scared me and my puppy.. We both flinched.. What is it with these cars.. Why are they so noisy??? As much as I would love to keep talking, I need to go to bed.. I’m really tired.. Take care, and be safe… Till later.. Sleep well… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Thursday August 22nd…

Hello everyone:: How’s everyone on this wonderful day?? I trust that everyone had a great Wednesday.. I hope it was much cooler where you all reside.. It has been so hot and the moister in the air is almost unbearable.. I didn’t spend much time outdoors today.. The air was too hard on my lungs and the heaviness of the air would rob me of the power to breath.. That has got to be the worst feeling of all. Not being able to take a full breath.. It has rained a bit, but not enough to call raining.. It barely got the deck wet.. It’s later in the evening, and the wind is cool, and I would almost wish I could sit outside.. Unfortunately the bugs would likely carry me away.. There always seems too be too many of them in one place.. Well, I’m on the move, and out of here.. Be safe.. Till later.. Look before you cross the street… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚Β

This is my banter for Wednesday August 21st..

Hello there:: I hope everyone survided Tuesday.. We are now in the middle of the week. “Hump Day”Β  There is no place to go from here but to the weekend.. I vote for four day weeks, and a long weekend every week.. ‘Is anybody with me on this??’ Our day was hot, and we have a warning for a storm that could hit us on this Tuesday night.. I’ll keep my open for it to happen.. On Wednesday, where I live it is going to be hot and humid.. I know where I’m going to be.. Right here in the house where it’s cool.. I may even hide in the basement.. It’s really cool down there.. I could even sit with all the dead Halloween people I have stored there.. It’s a little creepy, but I don’t mind.. My hubbies sisters came to visit, and would not go to the basement once they seen the people who reside there.. We jokingly said they had to sleep down there.. That didn’t go over well at all.. This gal is going to try and get some shut eye.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Don’t walk in traffic… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Monday August 12th.

Hello everyone.. Well that was another weekend done and over with.. We are starting another week. We will be drawing even closer to the middle of August, and creeping up on the last long weekend of summer.. This spring and summer have flown by like the geese that fly over head.. I hope allΒ  of you enjoyed your time with your families and friends.. The smell of barbeque still linger on my mind as I sit with a full belly.. I think it feels like a nap is coming my way.. Took a trip to visit family at a camp ground. The place was great, and I wouldn’t mind going there to stay myself.. If anyone went camping this last weekend, I hope you all had loads of fun and relaxation. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and breath in the fresh air.. Well, I need to work on getting rid of this rotten headache… You all take care.. Till later.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next banter for August 7th.

Hello and hello… How’s everyone today? I’m doing not too bad, just hanging in there. I trust everyone had a good Tuesday. Mine was warm, with a shower in the early morning. Not a bad way to start the day off. I figured with the rain finally falling, my head aches would be out of the park. But, no! The head aches have decided to stick around like a stocker. They are relentless. I’m not happy.. But, I’m hanging in there.. I have had a problem with skunks. My house smells like a skunk took a walk through. He didn’t but the smell is there when you open the front or back door. I guess I’m going to have to spring clean the place again. That will keep me busy for awhile.. Well, I’m on my way.. Out of here.. Till Later.. Stay away from skunks… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for August 6th…

Hello everyone.. I trust all of you had a great fun filled long weekend. The weather in this corner of the universe was quite hot during the day, and cool in the evenings. Cooler temps at night always make sleeping much nicer. The heat tends to keep all of us night owls up for most of the night. I have somewhat of a hard time sleeping, as I tend to think too much, and walk a million miles, brought on by restless leg crap. One way or the other I fall to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.. While I was sick and off for the last week, I had no problem sleeping for the first few days. I guess, being sick will cause that. I’m feeling some what better, but the head aches keep returning. I will not go to the doctor, as the majority of them are quacks. I have learned how to put the pain at bay, but it’s usually not far away…. I appreciate your kindness, and your patience.. Till later… Keep the right side up… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next part of my story for July 22nd.

Hello all you wonderful peoples. How was your weekend, and your Friday? Ours was very hot, and when I walked out the patio doors it was like I’d run into a wall. I found my self feeling like I was having a hard time breathing. Like that elephant you see sitting on the guys chest in the commercial about POCD. I didn’t spend much time out there. Just spent my time inside cleaning up for company on Saturday. That day was one of the hot days too. I cooked on the barbeque so the house did not get hot. Going out made me sweat like crazy. But the dinner turned out really good. I made beer can chicken and pork tenderloin. They turned out just right. Strawberries, and whip cream to end off the dinner. I love cooking for others. It’s my thing… Well, this gals gotta get moving… Take care of yourselves and be safe…. Till later… Keep cool… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my new edition to my story for July 16th.

Hello everyone out there. I hope your Monday was a good and safe day for you and your family. My day was really nice. I blew up a small pillow, and instantly got a migraine.Β  I have never had that happen before. I have a way to get rid of most of the pain and the partial blindness I experience. The pain I have left is like a dull ache that I am willing to live with. As long as I don’t bend over, the head fells okay. I usually end up with the ‘don’t bend over,’ pain for two days. It’s better than not being able to see right. For our Anniversary we went to Red Lobster. The biscuits they serve are so tasty that they make it hard to finish your main course. Then we had crab stuffed mushrooms. To die for, and oh so savory. I hadΒ  garlic shrimp and a salad. I ordered breaded shrimp, but the batter was icky. So, I peeled off the batter and ate the shrimps. All in all, it was a fantastic day… Take care of those you love, and be safe… Till tomorrow… Keep smiling… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my first part of my story for July 15th.

Hi: You wonderful people.. How was your weekend? Ours was smashing. I wished it had rained a little more than it did on Saturday. It rained not even enough to dampen the ground. We usually water from the rain barrel, but that has dried up. Come on rain. By the time it gets here the grass will look a bit brown. Fear not as we do have the water in the doggie pool to use next. Our gardens are all a blaze with colors of orange, red, purple, white, yellow, pink and green. It looks beautiful.. All of the pictures in this story are the ones I have taken.. I hope you enjoy them… This girl is way behind with my story so I best get moving.. Be safe… Till later.. Keep the right side up… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
