Effects from Isaac have arrived!

I didn’t get my back to stop hurting and to sleep until around 5.30 AM!  I slept until 9.30 AM and then it was time to get some errands done before Isaac showed itself here in our neck of the woods.


around 4 PM the wind started a bit and then before long the rain arrived.  We got like an inch in 15 minutes!


We went to dinner and just got home and friends Wanda and Jim took Lexi and Roo on a walk for us .. boom the rain returned in another down pour.  It didn’t last long and it cleared up again .. well for the time being.


I was looking at the difference in how much our little spot has changed from when we arrived in April until now .. what do you think?

Here’s what our yard looks like now on 8-31-12 .. As you can see our garden has grown. 


Around 8 PM the rain returned and from looking at the weather map it appears to be here for some time.  Looks to be a night to curl up and read a book as the satellite doesn’t work in the heavy rain.  The red dot is where we are .. looks like it may be a booming night as well as a wet one.

Another month has gone by

Wow it’s hard to believe it’s the early hours of the last day of August.  Winter will be here before we know it.  We’ve been doing the same ole, same ole.  Not really much going on in our lives except health issues for me and enjoying family and friends.  I’m going on my 3rd week of medication and i still really can not tell any difference.  I still get tired very easily and to top it off, I've been sick with allergies and asthma.  The neighbors that live in behind the campground seem to enjoy burning leaves and what ever else they can.  Hence it causes my asthma to act up and so I've guess I'm not feeling good and grouchy.  My back has been bothering me and hence less sleep. It’s almost 3 am and I'm up with back pain :(((


Papa and Toby enjoying each other


On the plus side we enjoyed having our grand kids this past weekend.  We only see them on the weekends now that school has started.  Toby loves his picture taken.

Roo the dog we are dog sitting is settling in pretty good .. well other then she gets out of anything you put her in except for a choke collar.  She likes to run and run and then we have to track her down.  She escaped again on Monday night after i bought her a new collar.


Our son Tyson is still living with us and next month his divorce should be final.  We still have no clue what we will be doing this winter.  Weather we will be able to escape to warmer climate or if we will be have to survive the winter here in the cold Midwest.  It’s looking like our weekend is going to be filled with rain from the aftermath of hurricane Isaac.  We are praying for all those who were affected by the storm and so thankful we were not in Mississippi and having to evacuate.  We still remember doing that in 2008.

I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend.  We plan to spend it with family and friends.
