We have worked without stop since Hurricane Irma left us. We are now tired beyond belief and know we definitely need a day off. What better day to take off than Sunday? We went out to breakfast, after church, of course. I was surprised that more people weren't in church this morning giving thanks for making it through the storm safely. Now I am here at home relaxing with yet another cup of coffee. I will be on mylot today, off and on. I have worked so hard the past few days I am now ill again. So today we will be trying to have a well deserved rest. Plus, I will be trying to play catch up with everyone here. What are your plans for today? Whatever they are I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

I had to work today. Was happy to only have one client for 2 hours. Went shopping with my sister and granddaughter. Now I am relaxing while catching up on notifications. Soon I will indulge in one more cup of coffee. You got me hankering for one.

I went to the store and then did some reading. Watching TV and relaxing now. Glad you made it through safely.

@HazySue Were you hurt in Irma? I love the picture of the cup. It is adorable. I am working on My Lot and watching TV.

No, I wasn't hurt but we did have some damage. I found the image of the cup on Pixabay. Right now I have a show on called "Shattered".

@HazySue I think I heard of Shattered but not sure. Damage is also not fun but glad you were not hurt. I love the cup you used. You are very creative in your taste.

I would think there would be more in church as well after a hurricane like that. I'm sure you needed the rest after all the work you've been doing cleaning up after Irma. My plans today - not much, thinking about writing, maybe reading. I just started reading a new book.

I will be done with clean up in a short while and I will be retreating to my little room and write, write, write.

@HazySue Good for you. I hope you get a lot of writing done. I've had no time for writing the last couple days.

I'm sure a lot of people don't have time for church right now with all the cleanup and repairs that need to be tended to. I plan to get going with the weed cutting, some of them towards the back of the lot are almost 7' tall, that'll be a challenge for sure.

Those are some big weeds. A challenge for sure. You get 'em girl.

Yeah, it always happens @HazySue it was one of those rare wet years and it'll take a while to get the weedy trees under control but by 2019 it'll all be dried up again.

Glad you will take this day off and rest. I can imagine so many who had to endure the hurricane are extremely exhausted.

That's true. Walking through the store earlier I noticed a lot of people with bags under their eyes. All of us will be happy if we never see another hurricane.

@HazySue I am worried about our myLot users in Mexico. 7.6 earthquake in Mexico City-buildings falling down. I think the world is in need of a break from disasters.

@Corbin5 I read about that. I have been concerned and praying ever since. I do think we all need a break.

Hope you get that much needed rest. Not much happening today. Just the trip to the gym later in the afternoon and a trip to the bank to settle my credit card bill and make a deposit in my checking account.

I love the picture you used at the top. Maybe people were resting their bodies and giving thanks privately at home instead of going to church.

Maybe they were. I do know that Irma has worn us to a frazzle. That image is from Pixabay.

Glad things are starting to get back to normal for you. Today is Tuesday and besides going and figuring out what was wrong with my Cell phone service, which was an easy fix, just sitting here relaxing. Have some stuff I have to do in a bit, but for now posting here on myLot.

I'm glad that you are okay. Irma was no longer a hurricane by the time it got to us.

I hope you recuperate quickly and feel much better now. I am recuperating from a slew of lunches and dinners, including my future DIL's bachelorette dinner, party, and bar hopping last night.

To quote the old McDonald's line, you deserve a break today! My uncle (who lives in Orlando) estimates it's going to take a couple of weeks to get the trees cleaned up. He lost a big tree in the storm, too (posted a picture of him and his kids trying to move it, and the roots were as tall as he is!). Thankful you're okay!!

It's amazing to me how these huge trees were uprooted the way they were. The roots are enormous. Heavy too.
