So it's wait and see with Irma and how she treats Alabama.  Our schools are closed for Monday and Tuesday.  The prediction is 2-4 inches of rain, winds 20-35 miles per hour and up to 45 miles per hour gusts.  If we keep power and no trees down we will be very lucky.   I watched as incredible blue skies began to be swept with white wispy clouds late afternoon.  By sunset lots of clouds and the wind that has blown all day has died down.  We will see what tomorrow brings.

I spent most of the day yesterday and today cleaning out my closet.  Samantha loves when I do that, it means she gets new clothes.  Swim meets for Jordan are starting back up.  He has practice 3 days a week and usually on Saturdays as well.  He keeps telling me he will teach me how to swim.  I dog paddle, I think he is in over his head if he thinks teaching me to swim will be easy.

I can feel the atmospheric pressure changing.  My joints hurt and my ear hums.  If it is like it has been in the past, by tomorrow it will be hard for me to breathe.  Out bodies are pretty amazing as they respond to nature.

Wishing you all a good evening.  Start the week with kindness and always spread some joy.

  1. Stay safe dear Jilda. I'm with you on the old body recognizing when things are changing in the weather.
    Lucky Samantha, she's getting new clothes the easy way. I bet she's happy that you cleaned your closet. So you'll be both happy survivors.
    Stay safe y'all.
    Hugs, Julia
