Hi Folks ~ I am sitting here in my little space while it gently (right now) rains. A lot of rain is expected for the next week or so. I felt well enough and had the window of opportunity to mow at my ‘jobsite’ this morning, so that’s what I did. I took tiny breaks and drank water and was glad when the job was done. I washed and dried doggie ‘bedding’ too.
Well, hurricane Danny fizzled and faded away. BUT now there is Erika who is a tropical storm right now and I pray she stays that way, or just fizzles out as Danny did. She is headed right towards my area. Of course, being me, a gazillion worries start surfacing and I am doing my best to give them to God and continue on. This is the first storm since my dear husband left this planet, and since Wilma 10 years ago. Erika is nothing like Wilma. So far Erika is just a tropical storm.
Here’s the prediction right now. Winds predicted the closer the storm gets. I’ll keep you posted.
Thank you all for your prayers with this ‘bug’. I remembered a black elderberry syrup made by Sombucal in France that Sandra of Thistle Cove Farm blog had told me about when I was sick in the spring. I bought that Monday morning and dosed myself with the intensive care dosage, 2 tsps. 4 times a day, drank hot ginger tea sweetened with honey, and at night if I had a cough I took a bit of honey. I also took herbs and vitamins. Yesterday I felt better, today I feel more normal again. I sure didn’t want to get sick like in the spring, that lasted for over 6 weeks. This morning I’m sure I sweated out a ton of toxins. When I got home from mowing, I checked the weather and it was in the high 80’s but felt like it was 107. YIKES! I had a nice long nap this afternoon.
That’s it once again from tropical s.e. FL. I hope you all are enjoying your week so far. Thanks for your visits and comments.
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.
The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Whether the weather be fine,
Whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not
