Keeping it short and simple today. It's cool this morning and overcast. Taking it slow. Wishing y'all the best today and in the week to come.
Take care. Be good and be good to good ol' irreplaceable YOU!
@LydiaN586309 thank you and to Everyone else here On the Front Porch may you all have a Wonderful Blessed weekend. For those in the path of the hurricane please be safe, heed all warnings and may God keep you safe. 🙂😁✌🌹🌹🌹☕🍵
Good Afternoon, Peepers!
Needless to say, I missed the morning. But I'm determined to not miss the day. So I am up and awake and have already downed my first hot mid-day cup of tea. Green tea, that is. Coffee later.
Well, it almost goes without saying, "It's hot!" The sun is full up and out. But instead of sitting in the ultra coolness of A/C, I've opted for open windows and carefully placed fans so as to enjoy the songs of the birds and any slight breeze that might make it's way through. Right now, I am enjoying both. But it's still hot.
@Frozenoem-- Try as I might, I have absolutely no idea what BUMF stands for. But I guess it's safe to say, if you did not give the full translation, it's best to leave it as is. Right? R-I-G-H-T! Smile.
But before I head off, I want to share another video. This one shows the hearts and minds of our non-human earthly friends. It literally made me ball like a baby in parts. We could learn much from them. So if you tend to be more weepy than most, have your tissue box near.
Afternoon it’s 85 and sunny last cool day of week, tomorrow upper 90’s. My happy temperature range seems to be -10* to 70* after that my mood declines.
Re: non mask wearers have dispatched two Karen’s to date with their husbands, Kevin or Donnie, If they insist upon close talking without mask it becomes a BUMF situation
I leave translation to y’all🤣, this butterfly is 6’4” and 180, with a stout staff. Admit I dislike most who get in my face or become annoying to wait staff in stores.
Mask wearing 16 hours, I’m good and used to them. N-95 or cloth, beats all heckouta alternative of being ventilated.
Would prefer to remain out of the ICU or COVID wards, like FL. Or being sent home in Starr County TX.
Am I taking this seriously heck ya.
Hey, Porch Peeps,
It's off and on sunny here, and so muggy. I did have my first cup of coffee on the porch this morning. It was 73 but everything felt sticky. Now it's 84, feeling like 90 and I'm inside for the rest of the day!
We'll be starting another heat wave soon. It looks like Monday will be 97 (actual temp), so who knows what the "feels like" will be.
Not much going on around here.
You all stay healthy!
@DaveMcK I believe most stores are requiring a mask now. I am getting used to it and it does keep me from lingering in the store. An hour is my limit I think. I see very few people without a mask.
I spoke too soon about okra in the garden. It is not doing well and that is weird as it loves heat and is kind of a weedy plant that grows in difficult conditions. We switched to organic fertilizer and apparently it doesnt like it?
Dealing with lots of heat and humidity. Looks like 80s most of the week but it will be humid so I am not looking forward to it. Counting the days until September.
Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this very sunny morning on July 25th, 2020! We are looking at a high of 80*, sunny skies, with no showers for a while this weekend. In order to join us on the Porch I am strongly suggesting that everyone wear a mask when you leave the confines of your home.
Health officials agree that wearing a face mask can help slow the spread of the coronavirus.Still, even as cases are spiking across the U.S., a tense debate has developed between those who are willing to wear masks and those who are not
Kudo if you agree!!!!
PLEASE STAY SAFE AND STAY WELL
Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this very sunny morning on July 24th, 2020! We are looking at a high of 80*, sunny skies, with no showers for a while this weekend.
It is time we start returning more troops from Afghanistan!
Hoping everyone has a restful weekend! Stay safe and stay well!
Thursday afternoon and comfy 77* for now, that’s gonna Change big time . Rain and god of thunder will be heard from later.🤣
You’re allowed a soft spot for IE just don’t use it. It allowed to many security issues to happen. Reason M$ pulled it and wanted people to use Edge.
Personally, I still use around 8 different browser but, none are IE. On iPhone or Windows.
Refuse to bring any firewood in until at least Autumn, have around 2 cords dry outside.
Another 2 Cords green , try to keep a little on hand just in case.As long as you let it dry no problems on burning it.
Retirement will just happen for me, when I tire of this. Some days I really want it to happen now, others sure I’ll keep going.🤣
Heaven help me my pods disappeared somewhere I know not where. Fresh pair on order, until new ones pop up, it’s cord land. Or BLuetooth to stereo need my I tunes🤣.
Same old for me, I’m maturing ungracefully fighting all the way.
At risk yeah , social distancing, masks, gloves as needed, sanitizer, clean room when working.
Virtual meetings on Zoom, texting or FaceTime when required. Have met 2 people in 6 months in person, it was required the rest know that ain’t happening.😎
Next week I’m taking a hike with 2 more, they know I’m delicate at this stage in Pandemic. Distance will be required, don’t wish to pass this year🤬.
Let your technology work for you, I’m avoiding close and personal for awhile. It’s just easier. There are times when I’m bouncing off walls, music ,TV, or hikes happen.
Local store and I have been on lockdown since Winter into spring and summer, same with employees.
It’s the rest of the state that are concerning for the moment, and pesky tourists coming into town.
We’re up on numbers 3,737 confirmed 118 dead out of 1.34 Million people. We’re a big state in land mass but, small in population.
Except for those pesky cities and towns of more than 1000, if really curious check out CDC for the states you want to visit, or WHO.
