Tropical Systems

We got rain from the “Barry” storm yesterday. Nothing “hard” but slight sprinkling to steady light rain over a period of time. It’s wet outside and that is so very nice. We truly need ANY rain we can get. We were not “forecasted” to get any of the “Barry” weather, btw. I don’t put huge…

Allergies and house stuff

Goo … I feel miserable. My “normal” allergies have just been la, la, la all along this Spring, until about a week ago. They ramped up, but even moreso this week. So here I am, 36+3 (wks+days) pregnant and it’s hard enough to get the energy I need to do stuff … forget it now.…

Thunderstorms 2007

We just had our first Thunderstorm for 2007 Spring, maybe first in 2007 (but I can’t say for sure since we weren’t here every day this year up to now.) It wasn’t a long one, it did rain hard for a bit mid-point, and rained more softly before that and after that, and the “thunder”…

If you don’t have it on your computer, music server, or in your CD collection (or Album collection, Cassette…

Trees and time

Hubby is out at Home Depot, supposedly getting the Crepe Myrtle tree (which on Sunday he said he’d get Monday, but now it’s Tuesday, but that’s A-OK.) The Yoshino Cherry trees we have in the front yard are coming along fine, one is putting up it’s many buds and many of them are close to…

Spring is Springing 2007

It’s been nice (weather) of late, yesterday into the 70’s for highs, but then so are the pollen counts high, seeing as it’s early Spring here in the South, without the actual “Spring” of calendar being active, which is quite usual for the South, of course. It is warmer than usual for March though, and…
