Hi , it’s lows in the 50-60* overnight, and highs in the 70*s.

Happy temps in New England, at least for me.

 

No oppressive temps👍 Or heat indexes or dew points. Just the right temperature for work to begin. Guess I’ll mask up and hay the door yahd, weeds have sprouted.

 

Coughing during a pandemic, draws nasty looks, sneezing around the same.

 

Time to play, enjoy🤣

Thursday afternoon and another 100* in the shade day, AC is cranking, for once set at economy 75*.

Do that so, I won’t melt when I walk later. The good news for me at least is Autumn temp’s coming for next week.🙏😎

 

Hot and humid just not working for me, 15 pounds of mail at post office (2 mile walk) but, got my air pods.🤣

 

Paired immediately 👍and found perfect size silicone to keep the blasted things from falling out.

Ear canals perspire hence the NEW pair. 

On that note, need to call metal dealer in TN to have my new roof materials shipped to Maine. 
Joyous I was griping about needing to order from VT. (SMH).🤣

 

Enjoy all

Good morning Porch Peeps!

Woo Hoo!  It has been an absolutely long, l-o-n-g week at work.  But I'm off for the next few days and I am happy about it!  Not that I'm doing anything special or going anywhere.  But it's nice to know I have the time to just sit and relax at home.  I can eat 'til my belly rolls over the top of my pants and I can

dog-jumping-tv.gif

catch up on all my fav TV shows that I've been missing.  Yeah, that's me.

 

A couple of friends already called this morning and upon finding out I had 4 big days off in a row, wanted to make plans to get together.  Nice thought.  But I just wanna have some rest and relaxation time all to myself--at least for the first couple of days.

 

As for right now, it's time for me to forage in the kitchen--make myself a big bowl of oatmeal with craisins and walnuts and butter and sugar and milk, a half of a buttery toasted cinnamon and raisin bagel,  teeny, tiny glass of orange juice, and of course I'll have my coffee with ample cream and Truvia.

 

I know y'all's mouths are watering by now.  So I got a question for you.....

And in the words of Emeril Lagasse.......

"Bam!"   Y'all betta git somma this!  Smile.

It's the weekend folks.  Stay safe and enjoy the heck out of it!

@catwoman500   Your last coffee picture is funny.  Hot and miserable here, 21days to go.    I wish I could say something interesting or upbeat  but I am uncomfortable and wishing for Camelot. 

Esteemed Social Butterfly

@LaDolceVita 

Camelot begins at the voting booth, unless you speak of other than JFK Camelot.

 

Sitting on AC today, HHH with heavy thunderstorms coming. Bad day for being upright.Might be time for expresso.

Hi, All,

91 feeling like 97…(that’s the temp, not my age, although I do feel like the age at times. LOL)  it’s sunny and breezy, but it’s humid, so it’s back to the dog days.  Arf!

Got my exercise for the day chasing and finally killing a spotted lantern fly. Geeze they are hard to get.

Then I had to walk to the far corner of the backyard to get a beach ball that had flown over the fence a few days ago. Not sure why the kids didn’t come for it like usual. Anyway, walking on uneven ground was tricky…I’m not supposed to do that, but I made it.

 

@LaDolceVita …21 days until my teeth cleaning and exam, finally.

 

@Frozenoem ...cute bank sign.

 

Time for another cuppa joe!

Have a great week.

Oh, yeah!Oh, yeah!

 

Trusted Social Butterfly

Hot and humid in VA, too, but as I speak type, my new AC is being installed. Woo hoo!

 

Had my cups of coffee earlier, now it's on to the iced version.  Any leftover coffee in the morning goes into a pitcher I keep in 'frig.  Ready at a moment's notice for a refreshing rehydrating caffeinated break at any time. 🥤 

Esteemed Social Butterfly

83* and HHH, oppressive dew point . Worked until 4am and retired at lovely 78*.

I’m beginning to miss Winter, snow and arctic temp’s only 6 more months to blank below temp’s.🤣

 

Have my 2 cords firewood drying in yard, and last years cord raring to go. I’m not quite ready to haul in. Autumn yes.

 

Need to check roofing order, expresso required. Will have another steel roof on garage.

Plus point - will never need to shovel 4-5 feet of snow off roof ever again, should shed quickly like main house.

 

@MsStretch 

Unless outside, I’m living on expresso for the moment. Used to gag co-workers in Phoenix drinking hot coffee when 110*🤣. About the same while at Pentagon City.

@catwoman500 

Re: flies, spiders and fast moving insects. Pick up a salt gun at a yard sale. Looks like water pistol but shoots salt using air. Vaporizes then from across the room🤣.

 

Results May vary depending upon eyesight and hand/eye coordination.PD taught me to use either hand, thankfully.

Hi, Porch Peeps!

 

So hot here. Went to bring the trash cans around to load up and thought it was way hotter. Only 88, but…the feels like is 99. Ugh! Rain’s a’comin’ this afternoon. 😺

I was enjoying watching the goldfinches eating the seeds of my coneflowers. I wish I could take a photo, but when I open the door, they fly away.

Ooops…just heard thunder. Still sunny!

Not much new around here.

Went to Starbucks yesterday. Highlight of the week so far! 

You all take care.

 

It's time!It's time!

@MsStretch thank you 😁 don't have plans on going out today it's 10 am and in the 90's

Greetings and good morning from Hot sunny 🌞 Tucson, Az 😁. Hope everyone has a wonderful blessed Sunday enjoying a cool refreshment On The Front Porch 🙂

Sunday awoke to cousin in VA calling to tell me he was fine - huh?

 

Seems VA , North & South Carolina, TN had a 2.6 to 5.1 earthquake, this morning around 8 am. 

Slight damage to his brickwork, and he lost a few bottles to gravity and slate floors.

 

Here it’s 83* and time to mow, think 5.1 is low on Richter scale?

But, figured I should ask how Y’all are doing. 

It’s these times I remember we have a quake line running through Maine, and our 5.0’s have slept through.

Was going to suggest RadioShack dot com, if people want masks 50 for $20, and hand sanitizers if you can’t find locally. Yes, they do still exist RadioShack, even have one local store.

@Frozenoem , oh yeah, forgot about the earthquake.  Happened SW of me.  News reports say no damage done.  I didn't feel a thing. 😁

 

Chill out, @OscarE1968 , as best you can down there in sunny, balmy Tucson. 🥵🚿

Esteemed Social Butterfly

@MsStretch 

 

Ever since ‘89 and Cousin in San Francisco he calls everyone for any tremor he feels.

 

His mother was a little irritated by his not calling her immediately. Can anyone say Sat phone and speed dial for cousins now.🤣

 

Keep suggesting 6.2 or 6.9 are call worthy. Nope any tremor is call.

Hi there, Peeps,

Another Sunday at the Acme and then Ebay listings. The Acme is going to drive me nuts before all this renovation is finished, must have walked a mile trying to find salsa since it wasn’t where it was listed on the “cheat sheet” aisle map.

Met my friend and we had a good chat.

Had to turn the AC back on. It had been a nice couple of days and nights without it.…sorry about yours, @MsStretch .

Guess I won’t be having my Sunday glass of wine on the porch today. I’m just happy it’s sunny after all those darn storms last week. More rain and storms due by Wednesday.

 

@Lydia....loved the piglet and calf video!

 

@Frozenoem …didn’t hear about the earthquake!

Time to pay some bills.

You all have a safe and relaxing Sunday!

Make it a good one!Make it a good one!

 

Coffee is calling...literally!Coffee is calling...literally!

Thursday 73* hazy hot and humid has disappeared for the next few days👍.

 

Trying to find enough shingles or steel roofing to do my garage isn’t so easy to find.👎🏻 Rather not put it off for another year.

Time to find another mask, and pickup my air pods from P.O. after that next coffee.
