All fresh and new.

We got a nasty lightning storm last night, I hope the rain we got was enough to keep any fires at bay.

The sun is shining, it looks like it will be a nice day. I am heading out in a few minutes to plant some lupine seeds. I have had them soaking in damp paper towels for a week....some have already started to sprout.

We planted Hollyhock and 'forget me not' seeds the other day. I love getting seeds from people from their gardens and having then re-sprout in mine.

They sound lovely, Sunny.

Tuesday I plan on a lot of yard work. I think seed planting will be on the planning list as well.

They probably are. I always soak my seeds for a few days in wet paper towel in a plastic baggie. It speeds up the germination.

Glad that you got.rain, Sheri...Lots of rain is a.good thing.

I leave my 7 gallon gardening bucket out when it is forecast to rain. Then I strain it into gallon jugs to use on my houseplants.

Ok I will soak my seeds as you suggested.........Thanks a lot, Sunny.

Goodnight everyone. Sweet Dreams.

If we could only share our rain with Tina. rainy

It is supposed to be a hot day here because of the incoming hurricane, I have the air conditioner set up to cool down the house. This is the last week of school for the grands...one is happy, the other is not.

Hi all,

Junie you are warmer than us! only 92* here today, it is strange weather... .... we went out for a late breakfast today..was first time in months... hopefully won't be last... people in this state are not getting vaccinated .... will never understand their rights to risk others lives ... just me thinking love thy neighbor is just lip service for some people....

Just finished paying bills and now need to clean this office up some... file the pile of crap on top of my file cabinet and dust... always something to get done I guess...

We did go and see kids , good thing too cause they are all now working at the store... well the 3 still at home.. oldest got back to work for the mines... he like physical labor and being outdoors... still have trouble believing youngest is old enough to work... 16 , time flies !
Well off to get my vacuum and dusting stuff out... have a good afternoon all...

Nana

Hi Nana, I can't believe the youngest grand is 16 already....time really does fly.

There are bad thunderstorms on the way, they have some rotation in the clouds about a four hour drive from here they stated. Hopefully nothing touches down from it.

I can't believe he's 16 either. How can that be right?

We got 3 inches of rain yesterday but it was hot and dry today. Rain is supposed to come back tomorrow though and then maybe into the 80's for a few days. I'll be glad for the cool down.

We need rain but the humidity is causes is awful on the elderly/sick...wearing masks as well is difficult for them. It is so humid today that I plan to hide inside, well I'll have to feed the calf later but that will be it.

I am still waiting for my flooring to come in at the hardware store so I can finish fixing my bathroom.....leaks cause the worst damage. My bathroom is a total mess at the moment.

We keep passing each other like ships in the night, Sunny. I see you were just in when I come here. Yay for bush beans.

Today the weather is in the 70's. I will take advantage of the low temps and work outdoors...when the coffee is gone.

That us a very good question, Sunny...But I am thinking we were wanting to get away from bad roads and the bitter cold....But this heat is almost as bad.....and of course, your flies. I am so sorry for you.

I was out about that long yesterday and the day before....at my house...then around 2-3 hours at my DD's picking berries between last night and the night before. night
Then another 2 hours this morning here. Hopefully another 2 or 3 hours outside tomorrow will have me caught up here.

We are to be triple digits the next few days. And maybe that through mid Sept or beyond. Teddy is going to spend some time in a cool bath for awhile, I think.
