Cloudy With A Chance...

Of not meatballs perhaps (if in doubt check Amazon), but if it doesn't cool off, we're well up in the 70's, then we're in for some rather nasty thunderstorms.  Louisiana has already been hit, Mississippi has had more than 7 inches of rain and a tornado in Mobile and we're under a severe thunderstorm watch.
We walked along the river today because I get nervous when it's very windy here because of all the trees.
There weren't as many boats at the marina as usual, I guess everyone is feeling the financial crunch.  We use to have a boat when we lived in California, a 32 footer, and it's absolutely true that the 2 happiest days of a boat owner's life are when they buy their boat and when they sell it.  As I looked at the boats I just thought, "Been there, done that, don't have to do that any more."
All the trees are blooming, so pretty, hope the wind doesn't blow too many of the blooms away.  We have only one flowering tree in our yard, a Tulip tree and it has blossoms but they haven't opened yet.  I love the Live Oaks that line the streets near the water.  The Live Oak is Georgia's state tree and deservedly so, they are magnifieant.  None in our yard, and on windy days I'm glad, but I love to see them.
Not doing much today, my sewing machine hates me, breaks my thread and laughs at me.  Wrestled with Amadeus (rewatched the movie the other night and thought I should play some of his easier "stuff") for a while but he definitely got the better of me , and tried  to crochet myself  a new hat, I seem to have lost mine.  Mac says that if I make a new one then the warm weather will stay, but that's ok.
Hope the bad weather misses us.


  1. I hope you escaped the bad weather? Thunder storms are exciting, but generally once they have happened, when you can look back on them and no damage or harm has come to anyone.

  2. All we got was about 1/3 of an inch of gentle rain and we needed it, it has been very dry lately.


Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women in my life whether they have children or not, they're important to me.  My wonderful daughter Ap...
