    It is a beautiful day here, too; but the storms are supposed to come in either late tonight or early tomorrow morning. Right now, it does not look like much on the radar, but those things can change in a matter of hours, it seems like.
    I am going to bring in all of the small plants that I have sitting outside in containers, and put the larger ones on the front porch and the smaller ones in the house until Sunday, when we are all done with the storm. Sometimes, we barely even get rain, and other times, we get the full-blown downpour and wind, and you can never tell which to expect, so the best thing is just to put the little plants away, just in case it gets bad this time.
    We went to the fitness center this morning, so I have that after-swimming happiness. It seems. Like the exercise wears out my body, but it must produce some endorphins because I always feel really good after swimming.

    For my next project, I am going to consult the Bible for instructions on how to build an ark. It's still raining (since yesterday morning) and I do believe that I saw 2 robins, 2 squirrels, 2 doves, 2 'possums, and 2 cats wandering around outside the house so I'll take all that as a hint whilst awaiting some other communication from the Almighty. For right now, as long as the giraffes and hippo's do not make an appearance I might have some time and it took Noah some 120 years to build his ark (without machinery) but that said, the rain held off until he was finished building the boat. Perhaps I might rush it up a tad. Now, where did I put all that gopher wood that I'm supposed to have?

    Other than that, good morning all and have a blessed day..................!

    We had warnings of possible freezing temps this morning and tomorrow morning. I only have six plants in the garden so I found six buckets to cover them with yesterday afternoon. I was going to put them over the plants when the sun went down. I forgot. I remembered about 4am and went out and covered the plants. I don't think it was freezing yet but a couple of tomato plants looked awfully bad.

    It's nippy again this morning but the sun is out and I think our plants we just put in the ground a few days ago will do just fine.

    I watched the News this morning and saw a lot of damage the storms brought to different places...I hope no one on here had any serious problems with those storms. There was a lot of noise from them over here...but otherwise everything is fine.

    Looks like Winter just wants to hang around as long as possible even though it's Spring's turn now. :)

    We had pouring rain yesterday, and the yard looked like a small pond. I told Bobby that Chipper would have to swim if he went outside into the front yard, he is so short.
    They warned us that tornadoes were also possible, but aside from heavy rain and a few thunder-boomers, we didn’t have anything serious here.
    I did bring in all of the plants on Friday afternoon and put the on the porch where they would be safe out of the rain. It is supposed to be cold the next couple of days; but no freezing in our forecast.

    I found the instructions for building the ark. It says I'm supposed to take my wife so there's no need to butter up the ark builder. That said, I too am much blessed to have an amazing wife. Besides, somebody has to help feed the animals and clean the stalls when they get aboard.

    Well the day turned out to be a tad more complicated than I thought it would be, fitting a new mixer tap/faucet in the kitchen proved to be difficult because it had kind of rusted itself in place, so I had to remove the whole sink and disconnect all the pipework in the end. The new tap is fitted and works well, though there is some repair work needed on the sink cabinet and splashback. I feel exhausted now, I am not so young as I used to be .....

    I did reward myself with a couple of breaded cod fillets and some roast potatoes and leeks [​IMG]

    I think I found the reason you're tired. The hammer on the cabinet isn't big enough. When all else fails, use a bigger hammer is some sage advice I have used on a number of occasions. :)

    Good morning all, it's a sunny one so far, but clouds are moving in, I will start earlier on decorating Elizabeth's room today, because school has started so the house will be empty.

    I realised this is my last complete week here in the UK, before I go to Russia next week until the end of June, I am sad that I will miss the late spring here, but I guess I can't have everything. [​IMG]

    Tomorrow evening I am going with Caroline to see "The Phantom Thread" which looks to be a good movie.




    A review if you are interested.....



    Enjoy your week.....

    They were a necessary invention. Prior to sinks, women who lived on 2nd floor flats would simply dump stuff out of the window onto the street. That particular habit made it necessary for men to walk on the street side when they were escorting their ladies making men the target for a good nasty drenching.
    The question here is, "who washed the clothes after the man got nastified"? Answer: the wives. So who begged men for an answer to the problem of having to prematurely wash so many clothes? the wives.
    Then, after the invention of indoor plumbing and sinks, who gets to fix it when it breaks? the husband....... but men still got dirty from fixing the plumbing so who begged men to come up with something better than a washboard and tub? the wives
    Now, when the washer broke, who got to fix it? the husband...........

    To a guy, throwing stuff out of windows was just fine and husbands didn't ever have to fix a washboard. Matter of fact, washboards make dandy musical instruments. :)

    Have a wonderful day Ya'll..................!!!!!

    Good Morning from Seattle.

    Trip out was great, and the hotel is very nice.

    Out to dinner last night, and set for some exploring today.
    ( Seafood at the "Pier" is calling...) :)

    Always nice to take a break from the norm.

    Come to think of it, Ekuk is cranking up for Herring and later on in about the middle of May will kick into salmon season until mid august.
    As of yesterday, the population of Ekuk was 2. In a couple of days it will be a couple of hundred and by June there will be about 1500 salmon processers,
