Good Monday Morning, Kids,
Time for a new Porch. Be sure to go back to Porch 1220 to read the last posts. Despite all the heat out West, it will eventually turn to fall. Fall officially starts in another week. This is a pic of an area in New England. Such beautiful colors. It is still in the high 80's and low 90's here and likely will be until after Halloween. As I always say, we have two seasons here--hot 'n hotter!
As Hurricane Sally moved away from us toward LA, it stirred up the air and there was some rotation over on Sanibel Island. We had a tornado warning for the area. It wasn't expected to come to the mainland and was tracking away from us so I wasn't too concerned. I kept the weather on in case another area of rotation was detected. Teresa next door texted me and wanted to move the chairs inside because of the tornado. They haven't been here long enough to know what is an imminent danger and what isn't. I told her the tornado wasn't coming here but I could tell she was nervous so I went out and we moved the chairs downstairs to a nook in the bldg. When we were done, we came inside to my condo and had a nice visit. Again, I'm am so lucky to have such nice neighbors. Gonna go out and sweep that area of the balcony before replacing the chairs.
Granni, so nice to see you here. Your lunch sounds really good. White potatoes are starchy but very healthy. They are likely what kept my ancestors alive, the ones in Ireland not the ones in Africa. The ones in Germany probably lived on bier. I love sweet potatoes with butter and cinnamon. Glad that Sally won't be coming your way. Looks as though all the storms coming off of Africa will be turning north in the Atlantic but that can change any time. I think we will both breathe a sigh of relief when this hurricane season is over.
Judy, yes that was Diane's username. Her cats were Rosie, Beety and I can't remember the third one's name. She and Kevin loved those cats so much. I also think we will all meet up in Heaven. What a reunion that will be. I have also found ways to distract myself from pain, anxiety, depression, etc. I've loved TV, reading and music all my life. I also loved doing sports, working out vigorously and doing crafts but don't do those things now. I started to paint and need to get back to it. I have some unfinished paintings hanging on the walls. I have no talent for it but that doesn't stop me.
Sun, Joe leases his car and he turns it in every two to three years. It's usually three but the dealer often makes a good deal for him if he turns it in early. He knows all the ins and outs of leasing and he always gets a good deal. One of his kin in NY had a Nissan dealership so he always gets Nissans. I'm glad I have this old Highlander that is paid for. I hope it keeps running as long as I do. DD hasn't trained in the eye movement therapy or the tapping therapy but she has referred some patients to it when she thinks it might help them. She believes it works by somehow resetting the brain. Hope you can rest up and feel better.
I need to call the dermatologist for a skin check. I hate doing them but have a spot on my back that is itchy so need to have her take a look-see. I hope all y'all have a great start to the week. Been praying that the fires are under control soon in the West. It's so sad to see on TV about those who didn't make it out.
