A Long Cool Down Headed Our Way

May 19, 2017

Good afternoon.  It wasn't so warm last night, so I caught up on some sleep till mid morning.  I went to make my morning coffee and got side-tracked a bit.  I filled a bag half full of junk mail just from this week's mail.  Later I'll go through it and tear out my personal information for shredding and the rest will go to the recycle bin.

Today is another warm (not steamy hot) day with temps around 90F degrees.  The cool down starts tonight, with temps dropping down into the 50's.  For the next five days, temps will range from the upper 50's to the low 70's.  Night time temps will be in the 40's and low 50's.  Good for sleeping!

Well, I've been trying to think of what I may have accomplished yesterday, but nothing seems to come to mind.  It was a steamy hot day outside, so I kept my door and windows shut.  Today though, Pogo and I are going to try spending some time out on the porch.  As I look out my door, the flag is dancing merrily, so perhaps the breezes will keep it comfortable for us.

Oh, now I remember!  I spent a few hours on my laptop and made a new quick page.  Gosh, how could I forget that?  I was having such fun.  Little by little, I'm trying to fill my QP folder.  I have three done so far.  I'm getting there, slowly.

Late yesterday afternoon, I went out on the porch to water my plants, and OH NO!  It has been so hot that they were flopping over and barely alive.  My gorgeous hanging pansy plant looked utterly dead.  I poured so much water on them I thought I may have drowned them.  But no, they really needed this water. 

This morning as I look out, my pansy plant is looking so much better.  Of course, there are a lot of dead blossoms on it that I will have to pick off, but it is going to survive.  Lesson learned here.  Always soak the plants really well in the morning on a hot day.

If I don't do much of anything else today, I really need to put together my grocery shopping list.  I am hoping to make it to the store tomorrow.  I'm getting really low on a lot of things, and out of other things.

Today I have another set of recipe cards for you.   Next week, there will be three more sets to finish them off.  Have fun with them.

Seeing as how Pogo and I had such a late breakfast, maybe we'll skip lunch.  This afternoon, I want to go out on the porch to work on my potted plants.  After that I'll sit for a while and work on that bag of junk mail from this morning. 

On that happy note, I'll take my leave.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

It is sometimes hard to know when and how much to water the plants.
Do the hanging ones have a little reservoir on the bottom where a bit of water can stay in so that the lants can drink wenever they need?
It is better for them, otherwise most of the water will flow out of the waterholes and not enough stays into the soil.
I find it a kind of a problem with hanging pots. I try to have little dishes (or big ones of course for big pots) under pots to have a little reserve for the plants to drink. But I am always short in those "dishes. Our pots need quite some water too now, weather is better and more sun, which is okay.
Hope you could sit on the porch for a while in nice temperature.
And then ogo is happy too, to be outside fr a while.
Well, it is time to go to my blog and make a post.
So have a lovely and happy day.
