BEAUTIFUL WEATHER





We finally have some beautiful weather in the 70's and low 80's but by Sat. it is back to the 90's for the next few days. I did a post last night and posted one pic twice. Clever me I tried to delete the one pic and deleted everthing. A few blue words and that was the end of posting. Well here I am to try again. I told you I got energized by the great weather and cleaned all the windows on the first level of our 2 story house. I used a squeegee combo thing with a great sponge on one end and a rubber squeegee at the other end. It works great with a recipe a window washer gave me with ammonia, rubbing alcohol, tad of dish soap and water. It really gets everything off. When it cools again I will do upstairs. The windows up there flip in so the outside and inside can be cleaned from the inside. I don't use the squeegee inside - too messy.

It was so nice Harv took his laptop outside and spent 3-4 hours sitting on the deck. Even went back out with his 5.30 cocktail and a book he is reading. He has been housebound this summer with the high heat. In Florida in the winter he is outside almost every day for what he calls his 15 minutes of sunshine. I took a pic of him then noticed my little step stool was still in the garden at the kitchen window. Ignore it.

I took a few pics of flowers on the deck and side yard. They have done amazingly well considering the terrible heat. The beauty of living in the shade is they do not dry out like in that hot sun. Well I will try and post my few pics and try not to delete them again.

Your garden looks lovely. We have had some fall like evenings already so things in my garden are winding down. Sad to say.

Hi Harv (waving at your from Canada!). The flowers are beautiful and I feel so bad that they're winding down for the year. Fall is a nice time of year, but I think it's sad that all the tree are already starting to change colours.

Glad to see Harv enjoying a beautiful day. I suppose you have to grab them while you can...this weekend is supposed to be beautiful for us and we're heading back to the beach for our Farewell to Summer...
