We had two very cold mornings this weekend. This morning it was also cold in the low 40's but not as bad as the mid 30's of Saturday and Sunday. David forgot to bring in my hanging baskets for me. I thought the petunias were going to die but they survived the weekend cold. Amazing! I still intend to repot them this week. I wasn't able to do it earlier last week because I couldn't find the right sized pots. I found a butt load of them in the garden shed. I really need to clean that thing out.

It's supposed to get down into the 30's and 40's starting this weekend. We had a front slide through here early this morning. Yeah, I felt that bugger coming. It kept me up most of the night. Right now the temperature is warmer than it was yesterday morning. The weather guy called it a cold front. Really? A cold front? We will have a real cold front arriving on Saturday and the temperatures will fall into the mid 30's and 40's. Now that's a fucking cold front. David said he's going to light the furnace tonight. I said wait until Friday. I'm hoping we have nothing but colder weather from this weekend until spring. I've already taken my all my summer clothes and exchanged them for my cooler winter clothes. So, it has to stay cold.

I did not want to get up this morning. It was so nice and cold and the bed was so warm, soft and cozy. But I had to get up even though I have absolutely nothing to do today.
While I was in bed I was going over things in my mind of "what if". What if we had continued going to the moon and then colonizing it. Do you know that we might be actually colonizing Mars right now? We might have made such great strides in the name of science that we would never have thought of today. But because of past inactions of Presidents, Congress and let us not forget the religious fanatics, that's just a "what if" now.
David just called, I have errands to do right now. Catch y'all later.

We had a cold front come through yesterday. Although it was quite painful for me I absolutely loved it. Today is pretty and very cool. it was 54 degrees at 6:30 this morning. it will only be in the mid 70's today. I'm hoping it stays this way.
We had a lovely weekend until the dryer quit. I was doing the last load and it just up and died on me. When I went to check on the load in the dryer, I noticed it hadn't finished its cycle. So I turned it back on and heard a crackling sound coming from the dryer plug on the wall. David checked it out. Heard the same noise and went to the fuse box and turned the electricity to the plug off. He unplugged the dryer and took out the wall socket and found the connections were all charred. I was remembering that I smelled something electrical burning all week but I couldn't find where it was coming from. Found out this was the reason. Now we have to find the cause. So David called an electrician to come out and see if they can find the cause and replace the wires. David also did one thing I don't think he needed to do and that was buy a new dryer. He said better safe than sorry. He just replaced that dryer I believe last winter. Anywho, we will see what happens when the guy gets here.

Today is Friday the 13th. YES!!! My favorite day of the year! My life sucks, so fucking bad, what could be worse, RIGHT??!!! Did anyone hear about the "Last flight to HEL?" Yeah, it's flight 666 from Copenhagen at the 13th hour to Helsinki Finland (HEL). Read it here. So fucking cool.
Yes' I'm back. This past week, when I was off, was very hard for me. My pain level was unreal. I was feeling the cold front that was coming through this week, yeah, feeling it close to seven days in advance. That's pretty sad. So I had to take some time off. We have another cold front coming in on Sunday with rain so I never really stopped hurting. I have to be mindful of what could happen if I do too much. So that means doing the laundry one load a day and only vacuuming one or two rooms a day. Meal prep is spent as ten minutes cooking and a few minutes on the heating pad on the couch. Lately, I'm making a lot of stews and casseroles for David to make it easier on me. That's my life.
My plants in the courtyard have all gone to hell except my pineapple and lemon plants. they seemed to have thrived. They love the low heat and humidity as well as the cooler temperatures. I watered them all yesterday. My Rosemary will have to be chopped up a bit later this fall. Yeah, not prune that bitch. Chop. It has grown out of its wine barrel. So I'll have to get David to chop it back and then cut the roots and then repot it in another wine Barrel. It grew from a tiny 5-inch tall baby to an overgrown monster in eleven years. Every year I said I would prune it back but then something happened to me that made it impossible to do it. Well this year, "I'm gonna get you, my pretty and your huge roots too."
David and I went to Saltgrass last Sunday to have lunch with his daughter. She's so pretty and a really sweet young woman. I just love her so much. She treated us both to a birthday lunch. She always bunches our birthdays together near David's birthday and we celebrate one big birthday. We both received $50 Visa cards to spend. I love that because I always need something and the cash comes in handy. We had a funny waiter who joked around with us and we had a great time.
Well, I have laundry to get to. David has the day off. No telling where we will be off to today.

I'm back. I needed some time off to recharge and do a few things around the house. I have to say it helped. I have to get some errands done this morning and then I have a doctor appointment. I'm going to leave y'all with 2 videos from Saturday Night Live. Enjoy and have a great day.
