Coffee is done brewing. 37° with cloudy skies this morning. Heading to 45° with rain in afternoon. Another .25" of rain yesterday. There were nice times during the day. Sassy and I did a couple of walks in the sunshine. Took the Mule for a couple of rides around neighborhood visiting with neighbors. Did a check of garden pond. Water is crystal clear. Still some more cleanup to do. But I will not be doing as much as I did Saturday. Not sure what I will be doing today.
Tree has been getting larger every year in field next to my house.

Everyone stay safe and well.

Good Morning All.

good morning all
very pretty tree Ron

sump pump ran all night long, 4.98 inches so far, some light rain left for today but this system seems done.
Lake in back yard is receding but ground is totally saturated.
what a lot of rain but no damage, local streams like the Neshaminy are overflowing, bet the Delaware River is very high today.
I may mosey on down that way to take a look.

off to oncologist early this morning, don't expect any changes, since CT scan two weeks ago of my gut didn't find any cancer at all.
but my primary looked at the new scans and remarked that my back was in really bad condition, kind of wondered why I wasn't getting it operated on.
Surgeon said unless I had pains shooting down my leg, hold off. But the handwriting is on the wall. Just normal falling apart...

enjoying my coffee and a fruit muffin, hope to have a good day.
soak in hot tub last night felt wonderful, I leave it set at 104. By the time I start to sweat, time to get out.
Am amazed how well that Coleman hot tub works for such an inexpensive tub.

Ted, great job on the planters. They will look amazing when full of flowers.

Good Morning!

God has given us another chance to get it right (or at least not screw up too badly).

34.5F, going to upper 50s. Supposedly no rain until the weekend, but we know how THAT works…

Yesterday was an energy conservation day. after church,, spent a lot of time on the sofa, catching up on podcasts and YouTube videos on excavator operation. Figured out an easy way to remember how to do a jump turn: point the spin handle at the track going ahead/forward/under the boom.

Big plan for today is to go to feed store for some straw and layer pellets, and maybe clean out the back of Mrs’ Subaru and the back seat of the pickup, both of which have become quite cluttered over winter. I also have to set up payment for the new excavator. Otherwise, try to work on Harry training a bit more, maybe a trip up to the woodlot before chiropractor appointment this evening.

I hope everyone has a happy healthy safe productive blessed day!!!

no question of not being in a drought here, with last big rain, but historically Bucks County, the one to the very far right,
has been ok.

area where Popgadget is, North of here, is closer to drought zone, but where Ken and I am, no problems with lack of water

44 going to 64.

Some nice sunshine after a rainy Sunday, starting with a thunderstorm.

BEF, nice that your son led your congregation.

Kyle, nice to hear so many good things going on.

Most of yesterday was indoor paperwork, filing and weeding out old files while I watched San Diego play baseball against San Francisco in Mexico City. Looks like they were having a the Saturday game they hit 11 home runs, attributed to the 7,349' elevation there.

Good morning! 58˚F heading to only 80˚ East wind partly cloudy.

Today is a relief from the heat that we had yesterday 92˚. We had to wait till late evening to take our trail walk. Under the trees with a slight breeze was not bad at 88˚.

Did a potato check at the garden and they are the size of a baseball, I'll let them go till the foliage just starts to look stressed. They still look very healthy, looks like it's going to be a bumper crop year.

Our little rains are not pushing the lake level up fast enough. The lake level is still lower than the last two years on May 1.

Have a good May Day!
