BRACING FOR A HURRICANE

THIS IS MY BABY, JIJI. SHE IS A YORKIE.SHE WILL BE 2 IN NOVEMBER. SHE IS THE ONE THAT GOT LOOSE. HOW COULD YOU NOT LOVE THAT LITTLE FACE. TO SAY SHE IS SPOILED IS SOMETHING OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT. THEN AGAIN, ALL OF MY BABIES ARE PAMPERED POOCHES,, SO IS THE CAT.
IGNORE THE DECK THAT NEEDED TO BE STAINED THIS YEAR. BUT HUBBY SAID IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME AS WE ARE BUILDING A NEW ONE IN THE SPRING. OH, BUT HOW I HATE THE LOOK OF IT. DRIVES ME NUTS!!! MORE NUTS...LOL!!
 
WE ARE BRACING OURSELVES HERE ON THE ATLANTIC COAST FOR THE ARRIVAL LATER TODAY OF HURRICANE EARL. IT IS STILL FORECASTED AS A CATEGORY ONE BUT IT CAN GO EITHER WAY. IT IS JUST A WAIT AND SEE SITUATION. WE ARE READY FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS. HUBBY JUST GASED UP THE NEW GENERATOR IN THE GARAGE AND STARTED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE HAVE AN UNDERGROUND FEED DIRECTLY INTO THE HOUSE FUSE BOX. SO AT LEAST IF THE POWER FAILS WE WILL HAVE LIGHT AND THE FRIDGES WILL BE FINE. OH, AND OF COURSE, WE WILL HAVE TV AND COMPUTER.
I AM SUPPOSE TO GO TO MY GAL PAL, MONICA'S TONIGHT WITH NATALIE FOR A GIRLS' NIGHT. I GUESS WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW THAT PANS OUT.
TOMORROW WE ARE HEADED TO HALIFAX TO PICK UP A SECOND HAND BOWFLEX FOR MY HUBBY. IT IS ABOUT 2 HOURS AWAY. IT IS A SUPER DEAL AND IT COMES WITH ALL THE GUIDES, CHARTS AND CD. IT ALSO FOLDS UP!! HE WILL BE PUTTING IT IN THE GARAGE. OOH, LA, LA, HUBBY IS GOING TO GET A SIX PACK!! LOL!! HE DOES HAVE A SIX PACK OR TWO IN THE GARAGE FRIDGE ALREADY!!
FINALLY....I HAVE FINISHED THE ROCK GARDEN EXPANSION! WHAT A CHORE THAT WAS IN ALL THE HIGH HEAT AND HUMIDITY. I LOVE TO GARDEN BUT THIS WAS A BIGGER PROJECT THAN I HAD ANTICIPATED. I WILL STILL NEED TO PUT IN A FEW "FILLER" PLANTS FROM SOME OF MY OTHER GARDENS BUT I HAD TO GET THE BOUGHTEN ONES IN SO THEY CAN TAKE ROOT BEFORE THE FROST. SO FAR THEY ALL APPEAR TO BE DOING WELL. YEAH, THE TALL ONES FROM MY GIRLFRIEND'S GARDEN LOOK A TAD DROOPY BUT THEY WILL BE CUT BACK AND GROW NEXT YEAR.
WELL, HUBBY IS HOME WITH SOME GROCERIES SO I SHOULD BE OFF AND GIVE HIM A HAND.
HAPPY LABOUR DAY TO ALL MY FRIENDS. DEBBIE
PS. HUBBY JUST INFORMED ME THAT ALL THE POWER TRUCKS AND WORKERS FROM THIS END OF THE PROVINCE ARE ASSEMBLED AT A LOCAL MOTEL. I GUESS THE EYE OF THE STORM IS SUPPOSE TO PASS OVER US...NICE!!! WELL, THERE IS NOT A DARN THING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT SO WHY WORRY. I'LL JUST HANG ON FOR THE RIDE AND PRAY THAT THE TREES DON'T COME DOWN AND SMASH THE ROOF. TA,TA FOR NOW.

I\'m glad to see your ready for the storm, keep safe and dry, maybe it will lose some strength before finding you.
We had another three days of sunshine, that seems to be out allowed limit this summer, thee days of sun then weeks of rain. Well that will be changing soon, the rain will be snow and I\'d much rather see that falling (does that mean there is something wrong wiht me?).
I hope that storm doesn\'t do much damage to your new garden. Just get all the work done then get hit but what can you do? Can\'t life life avioding things because a storm may come.

Keep safe, and let us know how it went after, please. It missed us here in MA, just a little rain yesterday evening. Mixed sun and clouds now. Worst is over.

I sure hope it doesn\'t come through by you, especially since you have done all tha yard work. Hubby said this morning to warn my friends in Canada, like you didn\'t know, A for effort. I knew it was JiJi tht ran away or was taken away I just couldn\'t remember her mane, sor, got it now. I like the porch, but then I do like the antiquie look. My daughter would do it that way on purpose. You are are not sure where I get all my energy, please, look in the mirror, do you see two pees in a pod. Yesterday I pruned two trees, a River Birch and a Crimson King. Hubby wondered how I got it up so high. Well an 8 ft ladder and my 5\'4\" feet makes its 13 & 1/2 ft, that\'s how. Now we both look good for the W word. Naomi xo
