Following the Rain

I am ready for my trip tomorrow and managed to consolidate my wardrobe into two suitcases.  Just couldn’t fit everything (just in case Items) into one.

I am so excited to be finally seeing my sister and niece, my sons and children and collecting all of their wonderful hugs and kisses.  It should be a delightful trip and it all begins with my 2:30 flight on Friday.  All of this brightness, love and happiness will erase any puddles of rain.  Just showers of delight!

Take care and be safe….See you soon!!

Time is Marching On

It is almost the end of another month and June will be busting out all over (remember that song?) brings back lots of fun memories.  Right now, I am trying to pack for a week in New York and the long range forecast is for maybe high in the 60’s and lows in the fifties. That sure does not sound like light summery fashion.   For me,  it is more like hat, coat and gloves to keep the chill away. My normal attire is flip flops to match my Capri’s, short sleeve Tees and perhaps a light sweater for the stores with the A/C blasting.  I am thinking my body will be traumatized.  This has become a minor dilemma!!

I started with one suitcase and then added color matching hoodies and sweaters plus shoes to match and guess what?  I am on my second suitcase.  I had better start over and perhaps make a list, and then maybe one suitcase will be plenty.  At least I don’t need dress clothes to hang out with my family and grand-kids and play games with my two great grand children, Marissa and A. J.  A fifth birthday is coming on the 13th of June for A. J. and I am thinking it will be fun to shop with him for his birthday gift.
The weekend had sporadic showers, lightening and then some sunshine, but for the most part it was pleasant.  “Hello Dolly” turned out to be a marvelous show with its beautiful costumes, super voices and outrageous dance steps.  I naturally sang along and tapped my feet to the beat.  I just love shows and musicals especially on a Sunday afternoon………..That’s it for now……

Have a Safe Weekend

This is the start of the Bar b q season and maybe even the beach if the weather is kind to those in warmer climates.  The children here in Florida are almost out of school for the year and will be attending camp’s, visiting grand-parents.  I would like to wish everyone a safe Memorial Day and to remember some during this weekend, why we celebrate Memorial Day.

Till next week take care.

Tip-Toeing Thru the Raindrops

Our grass is starting to become a deeper shade of green on our fifth day of rain.  The sun tried its best today for about ten or so minutes but then disappeared and the torrents of rain were back but without the lightening and thunder.   That just changed, it is now pitch black outside and it is only  5 pm.  Could a tornado be lurking nearby?  It sounds like rocks are bouncing off my skylight as the torrential rains are coming down.  ” I wonder how strong is my skylight and is it possible to crack?”  By the way has anyone heard of skylights cracking?   Hopefully,  the answers will be negative.

For now I will say “here’s to sunnier days with the guarantee I will be griping soon enough that is sooooo hot and humid.”    Please send us some rain!!

Rain, Rain Go Away

We have been fretting about no rain,  water restrictions and brown lawns and now it has been raining off and on for the past few days.  I am ready to say truce, bring back our Florida sun and blue skies.  I am a sunshine type gal that needs the sunlight to function at my best.

Florida is noted for his lightning and t-storms and this morning  topped its’  record.  The lightening strikes early this morning brightened my whole bedroom and the booms of thunder “pushed me under my covers with pillow over my head.”   It was loud and scary- the pounding rain against the windows- I didn’t realize it could rain that hard and fast.  It was calming to think I don’t have  to drive this morning and I would just relax and pray for sunshine tomorrow.  The grass is starting to brighten to a light shade of green.

So for now I will be chanting, rain, rain go away, Ms Millie needs to go out and play! Will I ever grow up??
