Every summer I look forward to fall, as the summer heat and humidity are brutal down here. All energy just gets sucked right out of you and sometimes you feel ill. At least DH doesn’t have to deal with that anymore. He’s where it’s the perfect temperature continually.
I’ve had a summer cold, (or else I was attacked by dust in the air from moving stuff stored for too long,) today is the 5th day. I woke up feeling much better this morning than the last 4 days, my nose hasn’t been running like it was, cough is just about gone, and no sneezing so far today. I had to work the first two days, Sunday and Monday I just poked around here reading and relaxing. Although I did clean and fill the jacuzzi, and relaxed in it yesterday. That was very nice. The temperature of the water is around 84, according to the thermometer that dangles in the water. I was happy when I flipped the switch and the pump came on and the jets did their thing. I fill this up with the hose we do not have a hot water connection, don’t need it in FL.
Today I went out and did my errands. Bought three bags of potting soil, and didn’t succumb to the temptation of buying any plants. I ‘looked’ though, but didn’t see any thing I couldn’t live without. I’ve got plenty right now to keep me busy and to give me color, scents, texture, etc. I am going to work on rooting cuttings and planting seeds.
When I got home, it was cloudy so I decided to take advantage of the cloud cover and mow, although I didn’t do it all, I’ll maybe do that tomorrow morning. It was hot and I didn’t want to overdo it.
Here are blooms from the past couple of days.
Marigold and Mexican Heather
That’s it for now. I’m going to heat up some Navy beans that I cooked a pot of yesterday. Will serve it over jasmine rice, and enjoy it with a glass or two of Chardonnay.
Enjoy each day that you are blessed with.
Every day you are alive is a special occasion.
Every minute, every breath,
is a gift from God.
