Gonzalo caused very little damage locally

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Well Hurricane Gonzalo, or rather the remnants of it have passed and caused much less damage than anticipated.
There was talk of localized flooding and high winds causing garden damage.
However the wind is still cold out there this morning and for the first time I think i'll need my full parka coat to keep warm- but walk I will. Gotta keep my streak going. Then I'm doing the midweek challenge for my team and I have a feeling I'll be helping DH with the loft project now the insulation's done. They did it in under 2 hours and left very little mess thankfully

  Hi Caz.........
Good news on the "Storm Front." As for the walk, I actually enjoy walking even more when the weather is cooler.
Hope your day was a good one.

    Glad you survived the hurricane. When I used to live in Florida, we'd get warnings all the time - most were false alarms. So many, that people became blasť and would have hurricane parties. Nothing like a bunch of drunks trying to evacuate after the hurricane actually hit.

    Just heard from my friend in London, she said it did damage there and trees fell on some women. We got nothing and haven't even gotten our winter stuff out yet. Only been a few days with coats. Today is dull, rain and damp, so my eyes and body say LOL
Hope you get your loft all ready and done. Don't think we will be working on the fence today.

    A few branches down in my garden but we expected a lot worse. Up in Scotland my mum had a power failure for a couple of hours and all ferries and plane's cancelled.
I have the day off and although a bit chilly the sun is out trying to get my housework done and plan a run at 1sh but wish I had gone out at 7.30 I am getting a bit sluggish in the mornings.

Glad all went well with the loft hope you have a good day

    Yes - no real problems from Gonzalo here either - thankfully.
Glad the guys sorted the loft painlessly - 'fraid the painful bit is yet to come with putting everything back. I wish you joy!
Enjoy your walk - I hear we burn more calories when it's chilly.

It goes without saying that when I have the rare good hair day, rain and/or wind and humidity will pick right up!

Well, some things got done!

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Managed to get the lawns cut yesterday but OMG it came over dark- like the end of the world.
Also got my kitchen tiles (ceiling to floor) washed down and and all the units and sorted out the wardrobes for winter!!
I have no chance of getting back out there today for gardening-it's pouring.
Just hope it brightens later and I'll chance a walk.

    I got stuff done yesterday too, but mostly things that no one would see or notice other than myself. But that's okay it was going through my books and notebooks and thing cut or printed that I have saved. some spark blogs I have kept to re read etc.

Today we went out for breakfast and then a little drive and came home I fell asleep in chair for few mins and then walked allie. Had a very poor sleep cos of pain in my arm and semi waiting for dad to call on the intercom. He was very poorly yesterday but today has come around.

Off to move about for a bit, my arm isn't seeming to come around with the prednisone yet. sigh.... He is sure it is somewhat rotator cuff not just bursitis this time.

Okay have a great evening!! I am enjoying our beautiful fall weather!
