Just don't forget poor myster!

Believe me JP, Myster would never be left behind!  My thin grasp on sanity is tied very firmly to his calm, reasoned, patient approach to life!  I am thankful every day that he decided to overlook my "nuttiness" and marry me anyway!  🙂

We leave for Alaska tomorrow, for a Seabourn Sojourn cruise.  We then have a few days at home, a trip, a few days at home, and another trip.  We will be home in November, so we should be able to meet with JP and Chris, and Jan (and hubby) at the Exit 9 big annual NYS tasting.  We have not seen a date yet, but it usually is at the beginning of November.

 

Ann & Peter

 

 

Bon voyage Ann & Peter.  I'll be looking for you on the Northway as I make my way down to Albany, can hardly wait to see the traffic on the way home this evening.  We're just over 2 weeks from our sojourn up the coast from Boston, bags packed, some of the few clothes I know where they are!   The new floors are being installed Tuesday-Wednesday, and then I can put everything back, and the rest of the boxes can be put away .... yay!   I'll be so happy not to be living out of boxes.

 

Have a great day everyone, I need to boogie a bit early today, lots going on in the office, and I need to jump on a call at 8:30 for my friend's business (she's going out for more funding, very exciting).  I was going to ask "is it Friday yet?", but I remembered, IT IS!!!!!!

Good morning folks...….looks like we won't have anything happen here until early next week and then it

will be lots (AND LOTS) of rain. Looks like South Florida will be getting the direct hit. We have 67

counties in the state of Florida and all are under "emergency status".

 

Nothing more I can do at this point (already got lots of water/canned goods, etc,).  Already decided to

get some extra $$$$……..figured better to do that now.  

 

The state is so big that we are about 300 miles from WPB/Ft. Lauderdale and Dorien may come up here

but it will be after Monday/Tuesday.

 

SPINS....hope you will be safe!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Lois. 

We are buttoning up. This am the weather channel put the eye squarely in our neighborhood.  This will likely change but no matter we are in the cone. The only thing we can do is over prepare.

Hope all will be safe.

Good to hear from Spins/Candy and Lois that you are getting prepared.  Just watching right now the live briefing by the Florida Governor, etc., about this approaching hurricane.  Below is the latest chart from the New York Times as to the path and timing.  Wishing the best for those in the Sunshine State. In the words of singer Glenn Yarbrough, it will be a case of "Baby, the Rain Must Fall".  Remember that song and singer?  Best for those in Florida. 

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

We are in the bullseye as well. Stocked up, gassed up, freezing blocks of ice. Time to prep outside and get busy on the shutters. Good luck to you and all our neighbors.

Sorry that I forgot to mention about John.  Yes, sadly, with your location in Palm Beach Gardens, you potentially are even more in the center of the bullseye.  Good luck!!  Will be following the direction of this hurricane with great interest.  

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

Happy Labour Day (or Labor Day for our southern neighbours or neighbors)!

 

In honour....today's funny.....

Actually we joined this "parking lot" yesterday afternoon at around noon.  Quite unintentionally!  We needed to travel from our home in the southwest part of the city to the moving company location in the northeast of the city to pick up recycled packing boxes.  On the way there the route we took was a mess due to road repair.  We decided to take the highway back.  BAD idea!  Our trip home looked very much like the "parking lot" above.

 

Have a great weekend folks!  Stay safe on the roads and off!

As an update about the hurricane about to hit Florida, here is an Associated Press/AP story from within the past hour with this headline: “Fierce Category 4 Dorian strengthens en route to Bahamas” with these highlights that hint at a potential adjustment in the probable path: “The National Hurricane Center in Miami cautioned that its meteorologists remain uncertain whether Dorian would make a devastating direct strike on the state’s east coast or inflict a glancing blow. Some of the more reliable computer models predicted a late turn northward that would have Dorian skirt the Florida coast.  'There is hope,' Weather Underground meteorology director Jeff Masters said.”

 

Good luck for those in Florida.  Yes, also second the wishes for enjoying the Labor Day holiday on Monday.  

 

This weekend is the start of the college football season with many games already played, plus a big schedule for today, Sunday and Monday.  Not all are interested in college football, but Spins/Candy and I enjoy following these activities with strong interest.

Looks like the Bahamas are going to get a direct hit...………..sending all good thoughts

 

Yes, sadly, the Bahamas are going to get a direct hit.  But, as reflected in the AP story posted yesterday morning, it seems, MAYBE, that this hurricane will turn up the Florida coast and not hit the Sunshine State directly.  Will keep watching and hoping with interest that the human and property costs are kept to a minimum. 

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

Here is the latest projection this morning as to how this bad storm might skirt and go up the Florida coast.:

Hi Terry, they still have no definite answers though....it will move north but it may come west  a "teeny bit" and our coast will really feel it.....and that little wiggle? Mother Nature will decide where Dorian wants to go:classic_wacko:

We're shuttered up, stocked up and just watching closely and waiting for the turn north. If we don't get it, we could be in deep doodoo. Fingers crossed.

Well, that would be apropos for Labor Day here except (1) I'm working and (2) it's raining today. So we need an umbrella to do any grilling! It's OK. We cooked a lot yesterday to make up for it.

 

Last night I made veal chops on the grill. Marinated with olive oil, a splash of red wine, garlic, and fresh rosemary. Sauteed some mushrooms in sherry to accompany them, along with some couscous. A nice dinner.

Then last night I marinated a piece of pork shoulder which I'll cook in the instant pot today. Pulled pork will be good in lieu of an outdoor barbecue.

 

And we also made some blueberry scones but didn't bake them - just stored them in the fridge overnight. They are in the oven now. A little breakfast before I head in to work.
