Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this last Wednesday of August!
Monday's golf was a total rainout as we had rain most of the day. We have had nice cooler days the last to days. The next few days should be more of the same.
Who is getting ready for the Holiday weekend?
Looking forward to golf tomorrow and a weekend with the family.
Yes! I am loving this weather! In the high 50's when I woke up. A little chilly with those bedroom windows open, but loved being under the comforter. This will last for a few more days before we go back into the 80's. I'll take what I can get. Put on a long sleeved shirt today!
AC was not on in the post office for a change. usually that place is ffff-reezing.
Meanwhile...Happy International Dog Day...
Great weather in New Jersey 63* cool 😎 and breezy. The Red flags are flying at the Beaches 😮, rip tide. I will be mailing boxes this Saturday. I just hope I didn't forget about the tracking numbers.. Frozen.. I need a list besides coffee. I'LL see if I can help. Hope the 🔥 in the Amazon is under control. What a waist of beautiful land.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their day. Pumpkin spice is out
The weather roller-coaster continues here in middle Georgia. A storm passed through on Saturday, putting a temporary end to our mid-90 temperatures. Yesterday the high was 79 and the heat actually came on in my house so I had the a/c and the heat going at the same time. We will soon be back to normal, although it would be nice to think that the time for the high 90's has passed.
@Frozenoem The kudo is for being alive, not the mishap.
I am feeling human again after the cool down and the look of fall outside. I am so happy every year when summer apears to be over. We were supposed to get rain but alas did not. Two inches short for the month. Very, very dusty. The last mowing was a mess. We are heading into the dry months so if it does not rain the grass will not grow much.
71* finally finished mowing👍, put holster (for cane) in lawnmower. Yep, I did it again👎.
Consider this proof I live, just taking some days off to rest up.
Need to food , time to stagger.
LOL! It was 66 when I woke up this AM and now it’s 64. Kind of got caught in a bit of rain as I did my bi-monthly bank, Fresh Market, Starbucks, etc. shopping trip. I did have an umbrella, but wished I had a jacket with a hood since it’s difficult to manage a purse, shopping bags, cane and umbrella. After I got a little damp, I thought I might ice up in the one grocery store I went to…AC was still at full blast.
But, oh, what a difference from the last 5 heat wave days!
Hoping the rain holds off now as tonight is our monthly Chinese restaurant night.
Praying for the plovers and panthers and Amazon rainforests!
Have a good weekend.
Glad I had coffee and then Starbucks because…
I am going to the Fly for Freedom show in Wall Township today. I just love to ❤️😍 see the old planes. Planes, that have passed the test of time. Hope everyone is doing well and is safe. Enjoy. Nancy
Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch today! We are looking at a weekend with milder weather and highs in the mid 70's with no major rain storms in the long range forecast.
Yesterday was a great day to be out side and golfing. We had a four man team best ball tournament. My group ended up tied for 2nd place.
This weekend will be spent trying to clean up the flower gardens by cutting out the unwanted things that show up every year along with the dried up daylilies.
Pretty sure this is the 5th day of our latest heat wave. It seems endless and I’ve lost track. I think we should get some relief tomorrow, and they keep saying this weekend will be a “fall preview.” I sure hope so. I think I’m going to dust and vaccuum the porch soon so I’ll be able to maybe enjoy it this weekend. I’ve missed sitting outside.
Hope everyone is enjoying their day! N.
