Today, I'm gonna play catch-up on my posting. Since Sunday's post was a severe weekend weather update, with power and cable outages most of the two days, I missed writing about Sister's Day celebration. Friday morning, my sister and I were on speaker phone together as we opened our gifts we sent each other to celebrate being sisters...I sent her almond tea cookies and flavored teas along with an imported silver bolo necklace with a filigreed 'real' leaf on the pendant. She sent me an infinity scarf with bird figures and a Willow tree figurine "Simple Joys...You're Simply a Joy in my Life". I believe this is our 28th consecutive year we've done this together. We toasted, with synchronized clocks, at 7:30PM with each a glass of champagne "To Siserhood...live long and well"!!...
In my previous post, I also mentioned that with boredom overtaking me, I packed away the St. Patrick's stuff and put out a few Easter things to decorate a bit...
And, again, yesterday, one comment after the post mentioned all the yard flowers I shared the week before. Well, I traipsed out in the muddy waters to inspect damages. Not much other than a flooded yard. The trees and flowers faired well. Except for the pink petunias I planted a little over a week ago; they were pretty well chopped up, but I found a few unscathed...
Geranium & Foundation Ferns
Tombstone Rose & Don Juan Climbing Rose
Fairy & Gazing Ball [it didn't get broken in the storm!]
Bougainvillea and Palm with Bird Bath - Another Don Juan Climbing Rose
Rose Bud & Pyracantha Blossoms [white flowers]
Wild Rose & Red Hibiscus [this was a Sister's Day gift several years ago]
So, despite having no internet and power over the weekend, everything is nearing normal once again. I thank all who visited with me. After I take advantage today of having the birding islands to myself all day, and enjoying more outdoors, I will play catch-up with visiting y'all!!
Signing off for the day. Ya, I have internet access, and elated.
