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™‚

This is my next edition to my story for July 8th..

Hello friends: How was your weekend? I hope you all had a great time with your families. Friday was hot here, so we spent the majority of our time in the cool of the house. Saturday was just as bad during the day. Once the evening drew closer, the heat turned into cool. That was a really nice change from the day. Sunday on the other had was really nice as the temperature was in the mid twenties, and very comfortable. The evening cooled down and made it easier to sleep… From what I have been told it will be not too bad for today, but the rest of the week will steadily climb higher in heat…. Today I took some photos for the gardens, and the critters who hang out in our back yard…. Seems to be a safe place to be… Well, tomorrow… Take care, and be safe… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next addition of my story for June 11th.

Hello to all my readers: I trust everyone had a wonderful Monday, and you got some pretty good sun shine. In my little part of the world it did nothing but rain. It was somewhat of a depressing day. The plants were put out to get watered by the rain, and had to be removed from any further rain. The poor things looked like they were drowning. I sure hope Tuesday turns out to be a better day by far. We watched the basket ball game, and our team lost by one freakin’ point. But the battle will continue in two days. But not in front of a home team…. Till later take care of those you love, and be safe…. Keep passing those smiles out…. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Hello everyone of you beautiful people out there: I trust your Monday was very enjoyable. My Monday was not so enjoyable. The winds blew in from the north and made it very cold outside. We experienced a low of four degrees which no matter how you put it is ‘cold’. It felt more like a fall day than a spring day. The wind was blowing cold and fast. It was hard enough to blow our blue jay wind swirlingΒ  garden ornament off it’s perch. Not once but twice. Go figure that one…. That’s windy. I cleaned a little around the house, and took a short nap in the afternoon.. Boring day… I’m hoping Tuesday is much more enjoyable than Monday… Take care of those you love, and be safe out there on the streets….. Till later… Keep sharing all those beautiful smiles….Β  πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Hello everyone: Here it is Wednesday. I hope you Tuesday was better than the one I experienced. It rained. It was cold. And there is nothing about a day like that to love. I’m praying that today will be sunny and warm. At least with the rain the plants grow taller, and the grass, and the weeds are green. This time of the year is famous for the great weed… Dandelions. Have you ever noticed when a person is cutting the lawn, how dandelions seem to duck down blow the blades of the mower. Then in no time at all, your yard is filled with the rotten things. We really only have two ways to get rid of these pests. That seems to be weed killer, or sitting on your butt in the grass, and picking them out one by one. No matter how you look at it, it’s a daunting task…. Well… I’ve got to run… Take care of those you love and be safe out there on the streets….Till later.. Keep it real… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
