Yes, there are chores around here that Chuck won't do either, unless I'm gone or half dead. The litter box is on the top of the list, I think. LOL! I hope those ajuga make it. Last year's have really taken off this spring and are spreading like crazy. I snipped a few of the runners off to see if I could get them to root. I didn't even try to over winter last year's impatiens. That was a one-year project and I found that it's easier just to buy a flat than mess with it. You might as well get a pot or two of annuals started now. I don't think your growing season is as long as ours and a couple of weeks in the sun room will get them going so that they'll look really good when you get them on the deck. Impatiens here usually last until around Thanksgiving. Looks like the storms are finally moving east. I hope all of this mess is gone by tomorrow. We've been in the 50's all day but at least it's dry out for all those people trying to clean up the damage here.

The wind's stay got extended. It's dusty again today, and will be windy again tomorrow. It's unusual for it to be windy an entire week. At least we'll get a few nice days before it comes back next week. I was really happy about the news at work Friday. It's been difficult working Caturdays for so long and feels like I'm always there. I won't get to sleep in weekdays, but that's okay. Ladder ball sounds like fun. lol I'm sure those racquetball badminton swings were pretty strong. I wasn't really good at badminton because the birdie was always so unpredictable. I was better at tennis. I'm glad you've had nice weather. You're right that cool weather is better for sleeping. It gets so hot here in the summer, it doesn't cool off much at night, and it's hard to fall asleep, especially when it's monsoon season and humid. It's nice they're having free dumping. We have fire danger pretty much year round, especially right now during the windy season. How was your day? Mine has been alright so far. I haven't done much but flip the mattresses. One was hard because it didn't have handles lol. I hope this week goes by fast. I can't wait until the 9th when I can download the Caddies album, and use the CD for the car when it comes. Have a great Wednesday :)

Slothful indeed...I can't imagine going to bed at 4am. That's when I usually get up. I was slothful this morning, too. I slept until after 5am. The earthquake risk is certainly there for the Northwest but it doesn't get the same play in the press as California. With all 7+ quakes that have been happening long the coast of South America I'm amazed there hasn't been something up here. I'd say we're due. It's a scary thought. How are your yard labors coming? I ventured out front right after breakfast and pruned and cleaned up a bunch of stuff. I filled the yard waste can to the brim and called it a morning. We cooled off a bit inside and then headed out for our second walk. That's done now so we can chill for the remainder of the day.

I'll just have to throw out André and make room for that cat castle ;-D Hahahaha!!! Na... kidding ;-D We have a few flower/plant pots. We have some hydrangea, and some plants with white flowers, that turn into small black berries later. I have no idea what there called in Engels. In Dutch it's called viburnum. And we have a beech hedge. No real garden to speak of. I'm allergic to some plants, but I'm not sure exactly what plants. A Christmas tree give's me a bad skin rash too. Bedside's grocery shopping, no special plans for the weekend! But just like you, we never know what will pop up ;-) I wouldn't mind a nice quiet weekend! Oeh!!! I love geraniums!! They look great in flowerpots :-D Thanks! I hear thunder in the sky. It's getting closer, And predictions are for colder weather over here. It always cools down after a thunder storm. You enjoy the nicer warmer weather honeybun!!! I'm going to have French fries for diner today. My favorite food :-D Sending you a big bowl too!!! ~lub an loads of smoochies~

Being up in a bucket like that during a quake would be very scary. That's awfully precarious. Military brass likes to have tactics in place to deal with problems. I doubt they've conducted war games around earthquakes. There's nothing heroic about diving under a stout desk...maybe we could make it look more like a foxhole. They might not have known how to handle that circumstance but I'd sure want them around for the aftermath of a disaster. The situation with Sterling and the Clippers is an interesting one. His behavior and attitudes are despicable. I think the punishment meted out and the desire to force a sale are spot on. I'm also a defender or due process and rule of law, though. I don't take lightly depriving him of his property and I fear a forced action would wind up in court. There's no telling how that would play out. People don't achieve his level of success without a big ego. I hope his isn't tied up in an identity as the owner of the Clippers. I'd love it if this was a epiphany for him that allowed him to accede to public pressure. That may not be possible. Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy. While he might win in court, the right thing to do is to arrange a sale and retire from public life. How timely that there is free pick-up over the next week. You can sure move a lot of refuse in that time. It's an awful lot of work though. I love Brenda's idea of trying to involve Gson in the process of selecting a tutor. That might well be the key to success and happiness. We're supposed to hit 93 today. I don't do well in heat like that. It should just be a few days though.

I'm glad you had the sense to get everyone under that table! Buncha ninnies! The deal with Bryan must have been pretty scary, all right. The forgotten man in the bucket! GAA! Those rhodies will be gorgeous! I'd put some in here but I've got so much color in the spring already that I'd love to find something that blooms later in the year. Unfortunately, all of those later blooming plants take more sun than I have, so I'm stuck with flowers in pots. Ah well. My ajuga from last year is really spreading out! I got 6 new ones in the ground this year but all I could find looked pretty bad so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

U is so sweet. Fank u so much. Rite now we has calmness wif cloudyness. But dis is morning. I remember back in 1987 I was working at a big hosplital wen dey said hurricanw Hugo hit. When I reported to work, everybody who worked there was to come to work or get fired, the sky was blue and the streets were clear. Then at 2pm the first winds arriaved. Then then the wind started growing. By 7pm it was on us. I watched the water start to rise until it was up to the secound floor where I was. A windo broke out on the 5th floor and the wind began to howl. I had to climb to the 4th floor where the pharmacy was and it was like a woosh of wind so strong I had to hold on to the rail to climb up them. I went through hurricane Floyd when I was working at a assited living place. I had to drive this humungus van with 8 pts in it and one woman who has multiple personalities. I was praying that her male personality would come because then she was dangeress. I'm an ole pro with hurricanes.

Yep too bad you didn't have a spare house for the cats and furniture ROFL. I have such a picture backlog! I was d/l'ing FB pics when I was off ICHC, and before I left I still had over 2,000 to go, who knows what the total is now. I've slept a bit, but...toodles, beunas noches.
