HORNY JETS AND GARDEN CHANGES



Hubby was on vacation for a couple of weeks here at home (he's back to work now) and as every year, he spent most of that time in the gardens and doing some landscaping. He moved a few perennials around and also decided that as the little strip of grass around the stone wall never wants to grow he would dig it out and put some pea gravel in it. Now he won't have to throw grass seed in it and water the heck out of it there all summer. The flower garden that is around 3 sides of that blue spruce do well, but grass doesn't. Probably for 2 reasons, the tree throws a lot of shade, and also the falling spruce needles make the ground acidic. I think he did a nice job of it, it looks pretty tidy.

The horrible pain in my arm that I experienced and blogged about last February is back again, unfortunately. It's just as bad, hurts so bad, can't sleep, etc. My X-Ray results from last time showed nothing other than the osteoarthritis we knew I have in that shoulder, and some calcuim deposits. For the life of me I don't know what this is and why it's back. I'm thinking it's a part of the Fibromyalgia I have perhaps, or a combination of that and the arthritis. I'm living on Advil again until this gets better. It's exhausting and so painful it upsets my stomach. Bleh.

Some of you may remember I'm an Airforce Brat, and grew up with the sound of military jets screaming overhead on a daily basis. As the base here just outside our city isn't Airforce anymore (it's Army now) we don't ever get to hear them but now and then there is something going on where there are jets required for fly-pasts, like our city's "Capital Ex" every July. (used to be called "Klondike Days) Obviously there were military jets required yesterday to do a fly-by for the opening parade. :-) I was in the house and heard a few of them roar overhead and went running outside. By the time I got out there the last one was screaming by but it was too high up to see it in the video. (click on thumbnail, turn up sound)

I hope you are all doing well, and staying cool. The temperatures haven't been too bad here, and we've had the relief of rain often. This weekend is supposed to get pretty hot, but hopefully it won't last long.

Take good care of each other, and have a great weekend!

PEACE!
Love Jude

Hubby did a great job in the front. It looks so neat and tidy.

Sorry to hear that you're in so much pain. Hope you get some relief soon.

I just read that an F-18 crashed at Lethbridge airport. Thankfully the pilot ejected and is okay but the plane was destroyed. I wonder if it was one of the ones flying over you.

Take care and hope you have a great weekend.

You have got a nice garden out there. I think a connection with plants means a connection with the nature itself.

Thanks ladies, I love flower gardens to enjoy looking at, I just don't do the work, LOL

Bobbie that's horrible, I always hate hearing a jet went down but I'm glad the pilot ejected in time.

Pretty garden! Your hubby always does a nice job out there.

As I type this the temp on you blog says 64F which sounds absolutely delightful compared to the oppressive heat we are experiencing. At 12 Noon is it already 93F with a "feels like" temp of 102. WTF!! How anyone can enjoy this horrid weather is beyond my comprehension. I'm sure our many LI beaches are packed blanket to blanket today, and everyone is in and out of the water to stay cool. Nuts to that mob scene, too. Hurry up October!

I hope your arm pain goes away soon, Sista :o(

Thank you Sista J.! It's now 1:30 p.m. and the temp here has already gone up 13 degrees, it could hit 80-ish today in the city (the temps you see come from outside the city and are never as hot because of less pavement, cement buildings etc.) and with that friggin' blazing fireball in the sky it will no doubt feel much hotter. Not to mention the inside temp of my house..... it will def be AC on in the bedroom tonight! I'm with you.... WHERE IS AUTUMN!! LOL

Stay cool dear friend, and have a super lovely weekend. :-) Love you! xoxox

What a nice garden. Sorry to hear that your pain is back again. You might consider having an MRI done, that shows up a lot more detail. I say that because my partner has a broken back and it was the MRI that showed it. Xrays didn't do anything.

I know pain isn't fun to live with. I have my fair share at times. Hang in there and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Being in pain AND not being able to sleep really sucks.

Your landscaping looks great! The hubby always does a great job. I used to have military aircraft overhead all the time when I lived in VA Beach and I do miss it sometimes. Weather here is going to be nice this week so I'm enjoying the reprieve from the heat.

Stay cool!

Ah so you well understand the enjoyment of military jets overhead! Good to know your weather has finally let up out there, and at least here we're getting some of both. Not too bad right now, tomorrow hot. Enjoy your week Vince!

This next week is Seattle Seafair and the Navy Blue Angels always put on quite a show over Lake Washington during the hydro races. We live just a few miles from a Navy airfield so often get to hear the planes and this next winter, when my Navy son changes from his current shore duty assignment, he will be working with a squadron there. He said he has been on ships, submarines and out in the desert with the Seals but had never tried Navy Air so decided to do so this time. It will be nice having him somewhat closer to home and I hope to get to see him more often during that time.

That would be great Dick, I hope you get to see him more. :-)
