they are wrong

I am hot right now. The weather says that it is 75 degrees right now. I can accept that. They also say it is  57% humidity. I do not accept that. No matter how hard I work outside I do not break a sweat at that temp and that humidity. Besides my arthritis says the humidity is much higher! The big black clouds hanging over my head says it too. They are calling for rain. I bet it does not do that. I will have to go out and water my garden this evening and tomorrow morning. 30% chance of rain usually means sticky weather and no rain this time of the year for me. I will have to start working in the garden at about 7 am if I want to beat the heat and get anything done. That is everyday. If I miss a day it makes it easier to miss the next day and then next time it might be 3 days. That is when the weeds take over and frustration hits and I want to give it up. No one helps in the garden after the first part of it gets done. That was the fun part. The weeding and watering and debugging and picking is hard work and no one wants to do that. They want to eat what is in it though! I need to get my tomato stakes in the ground. I need hose! Hose is the best thing for tying up plants. My problem is I wear hose maybe twice a year. I am usually bare legged with a dress when I wear one. I might have to go buy some of those cheap knee highs from Walmart.

I took Brook to the doctor yesterday. They said that the lump in her neck is done to half the size it was. That is good news. She also got 2 shots, chicken pox and hepatitis  A. She goes back in 6 months to get a booster on the Hep A.

No update on Spirit. I am hoping for a call soon.

Well that's it for now.


  1. Give me your address!  I have PLENTY of used hosiery lying about.  I am a drag performer, forchrissakes!

  2. Can't help you with the hosiery.  I only wear it when it's absolutely necessary.

    Such good news that the lump in Brook's neck has gone down.

  3. What  a good idea to use the hose for plant ties. It's soft and won't hurt the plant, and will move.  I never thought of that!  
    Hope you have a good day.

  4. its been hot and humid here in Okla too......Im wilting and I do not have a garden to tend just a couple of brats and a horse

  7. I do not look forward to the high humidity we get here.  It has been raining all day today, and has been cool.  I used to buy cheap knee highs at the Dollar Store or at Wal Mart to tie up my tomato plants, too.  Glad to hear that the lump is going down.  I hope soon it is all gone.  Eler Beth is not looking forward to getting her booster shots this year!  Oh horrors!

    Hi Celeste it is downright Cold here at the moment ~ even put the heating on for an hour ~ glad the lump is Brook's neck is going down ~
    be glad when you get some news about 'Spirit' ~ hope you get that call soon ~ Ally x

  10. I'd help you with your garden, Celeste, if I lived nearby.  I'd want to plant some of my own stuff for the effort, though, LOL.  I agree the humidity is higher than is being reported.
