@Frozenoem @DaveMcK  Would gladly trade your weather for ours.  Looks like we go to the 90s again next week.  We had 5 or 6 days of them in July.  Still not bad because some years we had 90 almost every day for 2 months.  Sooo only 23 days till some relief may be headed our way. 

 

@Frozenoem  Wishing you poking & prodding that does not hurt and at long last comes up with something.   

 

On the caregiving front, I called a mobile hairdresser for mom's hair.  She said $100 per hour and I would need to book her for 3 hours.  Now really, that is usery.  Will keep looking.

Good afternoon to everyone on the Front Porch on this first Wednesday of August 2019. The tornado sirens went off for our monthly alert at noon today. We are looking at temperatures in the lower 70's over the next few days. The outlook for golf tomorrow morning is good. 

Hoping everyone is able to adjust to the epidemic we are facing in this country! We seem to be so far from any partisan agreement. Sorry, enough for this topic here on the Porch today.

Afternoon all 75* and sunny won’t be heating up until later👍.

Sleeping has been interesting 50’s, makes me greatful for New England.

 

Tuckermans Ravine will lose its snowpack in another week, that’s around an hour away in White Mountains Of NH. Might be a reason they call the Mountain white.

 

Havent required much air conditioning luckily, 3 days were enough.

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

We pretty much have all been down the caregiving pathway, some are easier than others to attend to.

 

I pity the poor person that deals with me when ai hit that stage in life. And now need to return to being poked and prodded.🤣

Hi, Everyone!

Happy Friendship Day!

Hot but tolerable today...listen to me who is sitting inside with the AC on. LOLCat LOL It's sunny and 86, feeling like 88. Humidity is only 44%. Headed back into the 90's later this week.

Actually it was freezing in the Acme (food store) this AM. One of those days you don't want to spend too much time in the yogurt aisle. Yikes! Forgot my long sleeved shirt today.

Of course when I came out of the Acme, my glasses started to steam up!

@LaDolceVita ...I feel for you. Sure wish you had more relief than you have. Cat Sad

Hope everyone is enjoying a perfect day. N.

@LaDolceVita, I'm so sorry you're having to go through where I have been. I won't offer any advice here because you have not asked for any and we each have to choose how to handle caregiving and the press of it.  But what I do offer you is my empathy and encouragement and a prayer for your continued strength and loving resolve.  May you be blessed as you strive to be a blessing for your mom. 

Lydia

Storms this morning so its going to be humid but I guess that is nothing new.  Weekends do not bring me any relief.  Mom is a terribly demanding invalid, it has been 17 months now and she is more impatient than she was.  She asks for something to be brought to her, I go downstairs to get it and she is already hollering for more attention.  Cannot be alone for very long.  Her companion takes 2 hour  smoking breaks which I cannot complain about, but I have tons to do & cannot just sit with her.  No fun to be me.

Hello, Porch Peeps,

   81 here, feeling like 84, so not bad at all. Out for breakfast with friends this AM and didn’t even have to put the AC on in the car. Could blast my Beach Boys with the windows open and I started to feel young again if only for the few minutes in the car!

   Haven’t been paying too close attention to the weather, but there may be isolated storms. We seem to have missed most of the bad ones lately, so knocking on wood to keep them out of our little pocket here.

   Thinking about the pool a bit, but then look out back and see grass and smile at the relief I feel at not having to face potential problems.

   Hope everyone has a healthy and safe weekend. N.

@LydiaN586309 

 

It’s possible the phlebotomist was a vampire, I guess. I got a tad paranoid after she stuck the glass needle in my arm. Less so, after being bled no pain or even an itch. 

 

63* and sunny I think I’ll miss the  

parade and events today. Absolutely no desire to be jostled by crowds, I’ll watch the old cars from comfort of the house.

To Our Front Porchers Everywhere!

 

Here's me............

Aut oh, maybe too late!   I hope I'm just dreaming about a cool wet body of water and am not a "body" in a cool wet spot!

 

Anyway......

 

Wake up!  Let's get it in gear, Porch Peepers!!!

Post Script to @Frozenoem : If in fact you had 30 vials of blood drawn at one time, I'm thinking perhaps you were in a vampire's den as opposed to a doctor's office.  But then again, what do I know?!!
