Weather has been a lifelong passion for me; while my husband and 4 kids all in college and beyond, one now married, have patiently gone along with me!

The rain of last week is gone and the HOT is back! It was heating up over the weekend and today is even hotter. It has hit 90 and is only a tad below it right now as I sit outside. Thankfully in the shade. But I haven't always been in the shade - either today or certainly over the weekend.
We did get going on the cement mixing and pouring into our deck foundation holes. After hauling 67 - 80 pound bags of concrete mix both ...

Happy Summer Solstice! Ahhh, the first day of summer, and the longest day of the year too! There are sure a lot of months when we wish for this day. It was a nice one for us – sunny under a partially filtered sky and a high of 76. Unfortunately, other than to water my garden, I wasn’t out in it very much.
An update on my daughter’s knee: it has been diagnosed as a dislocated knee cap. No surgery for now, but a few weeks...

Here are a couple more rhododendron blossom photos from my yard showing two different colors - white and a lovely purple shade. I am not sure how well the purple will translate to all of your computer screens, but in real life it is a real pretty shade and probably my favorite. But all of them are very nice. May is rhododendron month here in western Washington. It is our state flower and I think this one is a great pick that someone in the...

The last day of April and it looks like we could call it the last day of July! Wow! A little flush of hot weather has found its way to the Pacific NW! it has been predicted and it is here. Yesterday really began the ramp up, and we finished with a high of 79 at home, the warmest all year. That was a bit warmer than forecast. Now today and tomorrow we are forecast into the middle 80's!! It will be fun to see how warm it does get.

Weather Changing Rapidly Over Two Days
The last two days have been a bit of a whip-saw for us. Yesterday was predicted to be nice, and it was. It was sunny, but not blazing - mainly a filtered sun. But a warm one. Our high was an amazing 72 degrees!!!! The warmest in many months now. And quite a jolt for us all. Everyone was out and you can just feel a lot of dreariness and weight being lifted off of everyone's spirits to finally...
