What’s on my mind?
Nah, don’t want to bore y’all with what’s on my mind today.
But what’s happening,… that’s another matter.
I have been getting mentally and emotionally ready for my annual Doctor’s exam. (I don’t care to visit Doctor’s offices)
But, go I did…
I prefer to make appointments after the Sno-Birds have left for the summer.
Everything went well…bloodwork turned out ok. So other than blood pressure being a little high, I am ok for another year. 🙂
Happening number two!
We are in what they call in Florida…the Rainy Season…or the Monsoon Season.
Put simply…all that means is that one can count on rain every day, usually about late afternoon and sometimes for just a short shower or two.
The rainy Season lasts about a month and it is at this time that every plant, shrub or bush can be expected to turn your garden into a jungle.
The neatly trimmed shrubs suddenly sprout long, bushy tendrills of lush foliage.
Example below is a before and after pic of the red hibiscus which is to the left of the birdbath:
The red boots are positioned at a different angle, but the birdbath is in the same spot. The above pic was taken about 3 months ago.
The above pic was taken today, after being in the rainy season for about a month.
Because of the consistent temperature…Things grow ’round the clock!
So what else is happening??
I’m just sort of hanging out now … doing nothing in particular.
I’m putzing around … fixing, arranging, as usual.
Oh, ….after the Doctor’s appointment this morning, I visited a local shop that sports cute little …well… for lack of a better word… “stuff”!
I felt in need of a reward for actually making the appointment and following through with it. 😉
I added a pretty little “hello” to my decor in a nitche by the fireplace.
AND the “hello” sign just made me smile, so I bought it too!
I have to confess that I say “hello” out loud each time I look at it. 🙂
I did see a beautiful rainbow the other afternoon after a brief rain shower.
However, there was no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow…only a slurpee! 😉
And that’s what’s happening today.
What about your day? What’s happening?
