Happy Tuesday!

Good morning/afternoon or evening to all my friends here in the myLot world. It's a bit of an overcast day here with the sun trying to peek out from behind the clouds. The lawn people are here with their riding mowers so I have to keep my windows closed as it's noisy beyond belief. Once they leave I can get some fresh air into the house and enjoy the little breeze that's blowing. Not much happening here today. My daughter went to work and I'm trying to get some housework done. So far I've only gotten some laundry done and took out the chicken to defrost for dinner. I got caught up in a phone call with my Aunt who lives in Massachusetts about another Aunt who lives in Florida and had to evacuate due to the hurricane. We haven't been able to get in touch with her but with all the power outages and flooding I'm sure it will be awhile before we get any news. I'm in dire need of my second cup of coffee and some breakfast. I can already feel this day slipping away from me so maybe I'll have to rethink what I wanted to do. What's new and exciting with you?

It's still a sunny and nice day here, so I had a wonderful walk, and even accomplished some pruning while on my second walk with Doodles. However, starting tomorrow, I won't have much time for days to myLot.

Our days really do go quickly!! Hope you hear from your aunt in Florida soon. We have family in Orlando, Miami, and in Naples, and we have not been able to contact them yet due to power outages.

I'm sure it will take awhile before the power is restored. My aunt is in Clearwater and is 91 so I'm hoping all is well with her, her daughter and son. The rest of the family is here in the Northeast and have no way of knowing what's happening. Seems like you're in the same boat with your relatives

@Marilynda1225 Still cannot get through to my husband's mother, age 90, in Lake City, FL.. However, my husband's brother was able to post to FB, and he said the only damage to Mom's house was a tree that fell on the garage. As for the others, no word yet. I do hope your aunt is OK.

I was smiling when I saw you got your power back. I'm hoping we hear from my aunt soon too. She's 91 and lives in Clearwater. She was supposed to evacuate to her sons house which is in Tampa but we haven't heard from anyone now in days.

The sun did come out later this morning and it's been nice ever since. Got a bit warmer too and I had to put the a/c on.

@Marilynda1225 Not that warm here, though it could be today as it climbs into the 80's for one of the warmer days this summer.

I was up really early this morning. I didn't want to toss and turn and wake my husband, my problem was waking with a sore throat and a bit of a cold. I've been cleaning and went for a couple of medical appointments already. I want to finish reorganizing a closet this afternoon. Enjoy your afternoon!

@Marilynda1225 Thanks, I'm hoping so too. I had a garlic roast panini to eat just a little while ago, hopefully that will burn it out of me.

@Marilynda1225 This is their new color - they had burgundy (we had one a few years ago) which was the only other color than black, grey, white..so I'm glad they went with red

@Marilynda1225 Yeah, I think a new router is the solution. I am afraid to mess with this one too much. I am no expert and could end up screwing up my connection completely!

Nothing I would call exciting - until tomorrow on my birthday. I will soon be forced to close my windows as well - the man is here with his noisy mower to do the lawn.
