Oh it’s hot!

It’s been one hot week!  The temps reached 99 yesterday!  Although these temps we’ve been having this week is even too hot for my liking .. I am not going to complain because I’d rather have the heat over the cold!  Although my MS does not like the heat my back does not like the cold.   I’d rather take the exhaustion and weakness over the severe pain the cold causes me.  So no complaining I’m just going to stay inside the AC as much as possible and enjoy the warmth!


This is one of the largest sunflowers I’ve seen .. It’s growing in hubby’s garden and it’s just beautiful!


I’ve not posted much as not really much going on in our lives since we are in the sit still and just basic day to day living.  I’ve been enjoying spending my time with family and friends and just relaxing in my lounger outside reading good romance books!  Although I have to admit this past week by mid morning I am forced back inside to the cool of my wonderful home on wheels.

What a life!

Our grand dog Bambi has been staying with us since our son Tyson has been too.  He is having vehicle  problems. 


as you can see Bambi has made herself at home here and what better thing to do on a warm summer day

Roo and Lexi decided relaxing under the AC was a good idea

I spent my day doing laundry and hanging it out to dry.  My dryer is broke down again and I’m waiting for the part to arrive that is on back order .. tonight we had some needed rain .. although we got a down pour!  I’ve spent most of my evening in bed with neck, back and leg pain and since I couldn’t sleep and with the humidity levels lately I’ve been having neck, back and leg pain so sleep has been far and few in between so I decided to get my blog updated.  I’m hoping my med’s will kick in and sleep will arrive soon. 

Having health issues is not fun and being sleep deprived is no fun either .. but back and leg pain is the worst!  Most times I try to do and enjoy what I can in every day life but it’s horrible when you can not sleep.  There are days that a nap has to be apart of day esp when I go several nights of not sleeping.   A few nights ago I didn’t get to sleep until 5.30 am and was back up before 9 am!  4 hours of ZZZ is just not enough to run all day on.  Most nights I try to be in bed by 9 Pm but it takes me several hours to get to sleep due to my back and leg pain and then when my neck pain starts in .. it’s much worse.  I have to face the fact that spine is just deteriorating away on me and my future outlook is not good. But for now I am enjoying all that I can while I can.  I live hour by hour and am thankful for my good days and get through my bad days.  God has blessed me and for that I am thankful for the life am able to live.  I always tell myself that there are others out there with worse troubles then mine.

Okay I think it’s time to see if I can get some ZZZ’s .. It’s almost 3 AM!!!

the weather has been nice

We seem to go from hot to cool these days .. it was hot and now it’s been cooler and I’ve been sporting a jacket!  It feels like fall although I have to admit it’s wonderful weather to sit outside in my lounger and enjoying reading my books.  I have read several books this summer. 


not sure if this is a good sign or not but my sunflowers are starting to bloom and their going to be beautiful.  I’m sure the birds are going to enjoy them as much as I do!


hubby’s garden has finally taken off and we’ve been getting lots of cucumbers and I’ve put several zucchini and summer squash in the freezer for this winter.  Our tomatoes are late this year and we finally got our first one this past week.  We have lots of green ones but just one that has ripened enough.


There is a good thing to staying put in one place all summer long and that is hubby enjoys his garden.  He missed that part of not having a home that stays in one place .. yet we both yearn for the day when we can start moving around again.  Although we have made commitments to stick around for a year.  So it’s going to be awhile.
