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.

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?!!

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this first Friday of August! We are having a great run of weather with high temperatures around 80 and with lows around 60 and no rain. 

Golf was not great as it seemed my putter died!

Oh well that is golf! Next week will be better, I hope!

Hoping everyone has a great weekend and may you coffee be perfect!

Okay!   Now that I've got THAT out of my system...

 

Good Morning, Front Porchers!!!

 

It is the weekend and I am sooooooo happy that it is!   It's been a long and grueling week for me and I am ready for some R & R.  So today I'm gonna take it easy and hang close to home.  Maybe I'll take in a movie later on this evening.  Wanna see that new Rock and Jason Stratham movie.  I love the Fast and Furious series and I love fast cars even though I drive a Flintstone-mobile myself.

 

Then tomorrow I hope to have rested up enough to take a little state-to-state road trip--just for the day.  Driving down to Ohio to take care of a little business and then see a few sights.  We shall see what we shall see.

 

Anyway Porch Peepers,  be good to yourselves and enjoy the weekend and have fun!

 

Oh, and as for me @catwoman500, I like my coffee with three creams

for that just puurrfectly carmel color!  Ummmm, delicious!  Smile.

 

Lydia

@LaDolceVita 

 

I really hear you on absence from dogs. Unfortunately, minimum 2 months or longer.

 

First tests this am - and feel like I’m down a quart for blood draws, 30 vials.

 

Think I need warmth it’s only 78* and a nap . The heck with the lawn.

Hi, Everyone!

Happy August. How did it get here so fast?

Storms yesterday and more to come today, but at least it broke the heat wave for a little bit. I was able to have my bedroom windows open last night.

Met my friend at Starbucks for a chat. I had a Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher. It was very tasty!

Another heat wave looming for next week. Dog days of August? How about Cat days of August? N.
