** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Morning all.

Despite the heat managed a reasonable nights sleep.

Today is mainly sorting out and packing the caravan for tomorrow. I may have a couple of weeks of LONI, which reminds me that Nola hasnt been around for a while....... unless I have missed her posting

Hope better might Doug

Hi Geoff and all to follow

Another hot night, though I managed around 5 hours sleep.

Dull here due to heat haze I think, another hot day in prospect. This weather is breaking records here.

Still feeling nausea, must get some answers from the doctor.

Doug

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Hello

It is 4AM here in Ohio. Funny I am up at this hour --my son Justin said he would be heading out around 4 or 5 am from Alabama to his home base in N. Carolina today. He graduated from Officers Training on Friday.

I had a busy day yesterday - met a friend for breakfast in town, came home and worked around the house almost day, we went to visit Dad around 6:30pm - he looked really really good. He was watching a baseball game. Stayed about an hour and then went to Bed, Bath & Beyond to get a Wedding shower gift for today.

I was done in by then and hurt almost everywhere one could hurt. So glad to get home and put nice clean sheets on the bed and I was so hot I took a cool shower and collapsed.

We may get some showers this afternoon. The corn around here is looking very good. I have tomatoes just starting to form on my tomato plants. I am amazed at how much that 1 little cuccumber plant has grown.

Plans for today art to visit the library this morning, go to the wedding shower this afternoon and just relax this evening.

Everyone have a great day

Anita

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

everyone,
The weather was very weird yesterday going from threatening storms to sunny back and forth. I don't know how many times e opened and closed the windows. Today is supposed to be cool and showers with a high of only 16. As long as it doesn't rain for garage sales I'll be happy.

The storms in southern Ontario were in the news last night. I hope things calm down for you all today.

Uschi - great that you are back on your own computer. And congratulations to Ethan!

Char - I bet the lake feels good in this heat. Do you have pics of the completed chicken run?

Good morning Geoff, Doug, Anita and all who follow.

I need to get the garage sale list organized in the order that is most efficient and then shower and meet my DIL and Max by 7:00 (my son is working nightshift). This city takes garage sales very seriously with online lists organized into districts posted every Friday evening and people start very early to get the best deals.

Have a great start to your weekend.

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

all

Had a super day today, we all went to Seaworld to validate our season passes. Arrived at 10.00am. What fun, and I did get some super photos too. Have to sort through them yet.
I loved the penguin enclosure, Tania got a couple of great shots of the Polar Bear. The dolphin show was amazing.
It was fine for the first 3 hours, then at lunchtime, the rains came down. We got a bit wet, but none of us minded. It did fine up again, and was still pretty good, when we left at 3.30pm



Tania picked up her car on the way home, 4 new tyres, and every all tight and ship shape.

Annie, I will be coming up to yours by myself tomorrow.

to all those ailing. I think of you all the time..

Lynn, great photos, my how he has grown!

Uschi, what an honour for Ethan!!!!!!! Are you home again...

Love and hugs................

Be back later...............

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Good Day Washers !

It is a wonderful 18 C this morning and the sun is shining. We too had severe storms late yesterday afternoon. High winds and torrential rain. No damage here except there are a good many of my tall flowers that are bent over almost to the ground. I will see what I can straigten back up again in a bit.

Uschi, Wonderful news regarding Ethan. They must see something VERY, VERY, special in him as you told me that he has had no formal ballet training. He must be so excited !!!!! that you have your computer back.

JJ, great photo of the penguins.

Doug, make sure you keep your diet very bland with no fats or oils until you see the Doctor next week. It may help the nausea.

Geoff, enjoy your holiday !

Nancy, no surgery is a good reason to celebrate and buy something for yourself.

Time to get the laundry started and tidy up outside BBL

Cheers,

Gail

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Good Morning Washers... it's certainly cooled down some after the storms...

Jon and family left for home yesterday at noon and drove into the storms. It took them 12 hours to get home with the fear of tornadoes touching down in their area. The news reported that thousands of trees were down... it was terribly stressful for all of us.

They finally arrived home just after midnight... their only damage was the Girls' trampoline that'd been tossed into the trees... and lots of limbs down... no hydro (it's still out today)...

So, while we were waiting for Jon to call us, we tidied the house and yard... made dinner... washed up the dishes... and THEN... the sky blackened, the wind came up and down came the rain... in torrents... little branches and tree limbs were flying everywhere and the walnuts were projectiles... our hydro went out... the lightning and thunder made for a beautiful show, though.

Our hydro returned during the night, so we have lights, phone, internet...

Jon called me this morning to tell me what the light of day revealed... the road to his Inlaws has opened up a 30' wide by 30' deep sinkhole...

Geoff, you will be MISSED while in LONI!!!!! And yes, where IS Nola?

((Doug)) Have you tried reducing your diet to the very basic bland??? How awful for you...

for tomorrow's mini-meet, Annie!!! I could have lent you my shovel. (for the floors, carpets, etc.)

Congratulations to Justin, Anita! Sounds like you have a nice day planned.

Ellen, the lake was getting like bathwater... when it gets too warm, the string algae begins to form along the shoreline... not harmful, but icky looking. No pics of the run... I'll snap some... we're getting 9 eggs per day... nice.

Hi Henry... I sure hope that ((Lesley)) is more comfortable...

Based on Gail's post, I'm going to assume a couple of things... Uschi's Grandson has been accepted (invited) to the National Ballet of Canada School... Wow... that is SO prestigious! Everyone must be so proud of this talented youngster!

Nancy has escaped the need for surgery... that's always a good thing...

And no terrible damage was done to your property, either, Gail... Ted wanted me to call last night and our hydro went out, so no phones either... there were tornado warnings for your area.

What a great day you had, JJ, despite the shower... the little penguins are adorable.

So... I have a TON of laundry to attend to... I'll to all yet to come and wish everyone the best possible day...

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Much quieter out there this morning! That was quite a night of storms, several very close strikes that scared the heck out of me! We lost power but just for a little while. The light show was spectacular and the storm seemed to linger in our valley. I hope there wasn't any serious damage here.

Great that Jon got home safely, Char, the damage there sounds major.

Good that your garden survived fairly well, Gail, the heavy rain can be so destructive!

Hope you get better weather, Geoff, two weeks is a while!

Lovely photo, JJ, I'd love going there! Yes, he has grown and looking sturdier and healthier this summer, the activity is good for him.

Hi Ellen, hope you get some good finds!

Congratulations to your son, Anita! You did a lot with a sore foot, take it easy

(((Doug))) that's wearing on the spirit.

Thanks, Anne. You must be getting really excited, Vancouver is not so long now.

Hi Teresa, saw your post yesterday.

Greetings to all to come, hope everyone has a rewarding day!

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Good morning everyone,

Here I am again! trying to keep myself up to date.

It is cool and overcast, after rains in the night. I hope the sun comes out. I have to go back to the Fair this afternoon to pick up all the items I entered. I won a third and second ribbon for the watercolours I entered. Also won
on the flowers. I had a quick look round yesterday afternoon. So I'm pretty happy with the results.


I'm just about to go out and walk Bessie (my dog) she is waiting patiently. She is 11 years old but still full of energy...a border collie/Aussie shepherd cross.

JJ your penguin photo is awesome.

Re: ** Daily Wash Saturday 20th July 2013**

Good Morning all,
It is almost 11:00 a.m. here in more comfortable Oakwood, temps are in the 80°Fs today. We are expecting those storms you got up there in Canada yesterday warning of high winds, etc. tonight into tomorrow. Not sure if it is the same storm system, but sounds like the same type of conditions.

Char, Glad Jon and family made it home safely. That sink hole near his MIL's house sounds pretty bad, lucky no one was riding down the road when it happened.

Went out to check on my eggplant to see if it was large enough to pick yet...it isn't, but did find my first half-eaten green tomato on the ground. Gee, wonder who or what did that??:??

Larry is feeling much better now that he is resuming his outdoor exercise routine. He is walking 3/4 of the way and jogging carefully the last 1/4 and it isn't hurting at all. So he will gradually increase the jogging part until he is back to his 3.5 mile circuit. This has been so hard on him because he has been jogging faithfully for 40+ years, so to stop is difficult.

Clara, Nice to see you here again. Congratulations on the awards for your paintings and flowers!

Geoff, Hope you have good weather for your trip. Stay safe.

Ellen, Happy garage sale-ing! Definitely sounds like a well-organized activity in your area. My daughter Christine loves to go around looking for things she needs. We enjoyed time around the beautiful glass-topped table she got for $20 at one. Took some elbow grease by her and Quinn to clean it up and paint it to match the chairs she got, but it was beautiful when done. She has a lovely covered porch with a scenic view of countryside and that is where we sat for much of our visit around her table.

Anita, Congratulations on Justin's graduation from OCS! Take care and pamper your leg until you see the doctor this week.

Doug, Sorry you are still uncomfortable with your tummy. What a shame you have to wait so long for the test results before moving on to finding a fix.

to all who were here before me and to those on their way.

SYL,

Sylvia
