HELLO MY TUESDAY FRIENDS!
I know I've been missing in action and didn't get around to visit a lot of you before I disappeared. I had to make an emergency trip to my parents. My dad decided to go outside in the 98 degree weather and build himself a ramp to store his Hover-Round in the shed. He passed out and then refused to go to the hospital for 2 days. Even though he was having extreme difficulty breathing and felt too weak to walk. It finally got so bad that he relented and went and at that point his heart rate was only 24 and they had to do an emergency Pacemaker surgery. The first one they put in was an external temporary one because they thought he wouldn't need it once he recovered from the heat exhaustion and dehydration. However he ended up having to have a permanent one installed anyway. Then his lungs began to fill with fluid and he was in extreme pain. It took several more days of medications and respiratory therapy before he was able to come home. He's real grumpy and real angry that he has to stay on oxygen 24/7. He's giving my Mom and Sister a tough way to go. I feel bad that I can't be there longer but I had to get back to work.
The garden suffered from neglect while I was gone. My potted plants on the patio bit the dust and I don't think there is hope for resurrection.
The Native plants hung in there but they were very thirsty too.
The weeds are thriving :( some of them have gotten 2 - 3 feet tall. I cleared one flowerbed and hope to do another one tomorrow.
Half of the veggie garden is full of tall grass :(
My work is cut out for me for the whole month I think. At least the heat wave is over now we just need rain.
Here's my drink photo.... what's left of my morning coffee setting next to one of the watermelons in my garden. It's growing standing up on it's end rather than laying on it's side like normal. Thought it was funny :)
Today's Random Thoughts
Sorry if I rambled a bit.... my brain is still frazzled from last week.
So be sure and check out the other folks at the tea party :) I'm sure their brains are still working.
