Hello, Everyone on the porch.

Too hot to have my coffee on the porch this AM and it will be too hot to have my wine out there this evening. Right now it is 88 and feels like 98. Our (what seems like a billionth) heat wave this summer has begun with no relief until maybe Wednesday.

Got out of my car at the grocery store this AM and my glasses immediately fogged up. Cat LOL

Lydia...I hope you are doing well after your surgery.

The only thing fall-like here are some brown crumpled leaves falling from the trees.

@MsStretch … a new back deck is my next project. I also have rotting boards. I want that stuff that looks like wood, but isn’t. Your Armani reminds me of my late cat, Licorice.

@LaDolceVita …kudzu…like a Stephen King invention. That and wisteria take over everything.

Need a cold drink right now! Take care, all. N.

@LaDolceVita 

 

1 year later no 🤬 answers. Only know  what it isn’t. Poking, prodding, continues weekly - my list of specialists is growing exponentially.

There may be recipe for safe eradication, worked for friend in MO, after spraying 4 times. 1 Gallon vinegar, 1 C Salt, a dash  of dishwashing liquid (Dawn) in a garden sprayer.

 

@LydiaN586309 Don’t say Fall it’s a dirty word up here. Glad your surgery was hitchless.👍

 

Re: Fall October 14 last year - our first blizzard that lasted. Really don’t want to think of Autumn for awhile. The first and one of my earliest 3 foot snowfalls🤣, in memory.

 

Besides still need to get new belts for snowblower and re-set bead on tire.

 

Now I need to haul my speakers in from garage, have hand truck 👍, they seem to be getting heavier. Need room for firewood.

 

Time to cover my posterior - extreme climate change is happening now in Maine.

Figure it’s best to just stock up on just in case firewood, and clean the furnace. Another -35 to -65* Winter could cause me to pull a Medea.

 

Temp 67* and humid.

@LydiaN586309   Glad you are better and quite cheery after your ordeal.  @Frozenoem  Any signs of  your medical probing coming to an end? 

@MsStretch  We were far from having the hottest July on record, just 2 very miserable days, the rest of the time just normal  July discomfort but I am ready for fall.  I have been ready since Memorial Day. 

 

Hubby went to mow  at the homestead last week and I asked for pictures.  He handed me his phone and what did I see?  Kudzu, the vine that ate the south!  Fairly small patch of it but even that is too much.  kudzu.jpg

@MsStretch 

 

Please don’t say Fall not yet. It’s still 73* and have no desire to start hauling in firewood. I actually filled my oil tank.

 

I hear you on landlords and wouldn’t mind one about now.

The joy of opening a garage door at -35* this winter, and not noticing that it was frozen in ice says, I need to fix top section and replace broken glass.🤬🤬

 

Hate contractor grade, finger jointed crap doors, at least the barn doors lasted 80 years. These new ones replaced sections twice in 15 years.

 

Time to play insanity has passed.

No fall here in VA yet, but that's OK.  I can do without hottest Julys on record, but not really into cold weather at all.

 

My deck is getting ripped up today.  It's ground level, but stepping out front door may require some acrobatics.  Balance beam, anybody?  It's because it is on ground level (and I am told built in winter on frozen ground) that it is rotting out due to ground moisture, so time for new deck.  One advantages of having a landlord, they fix broken stuff.

Good morning to everyone on this cloudy and rainy day on my Front Porch! Yesterday was a nice day on the golf course but I must have left my game in the back of my car as I was just not hitting ball well on several shots.

Hoping everyone has a great weekend! There seems to be a touch of Fall in the air today so I hope we get several more weeks of Summer.

Good Morning, Front Porch Peepers!

 

Hope all is well with everyone here.  I had surgery last week to remove what thankfully turned out to be a non-canerous growth from my back.  The surgery itself went well, but the mass was very deep and once removed, required three layers of stitches (inside to out).  A very good friend came out and stayed with me to do my wound care and dressing changes every day.  Couldn't have done it without her!  So I am well on the mend now and just wanted to peek my face onto to The Front Porch and wish everyone a good day and a blessed weekend!

 

P.S. -- Is anybody else getting the feeling that Fall is right around the corner.  Well, I'm getting the hint as some of the trees in my neck of the woods are already turning colors--from green to orange.  Just a few leaves, but enough to make me think Fall is a-comin'.

Lydia

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch this morning! Have a great day today. I have been out of town for a couple of days.
