What's New on Tuesday

Good Tuesday morning, to all my friends and readers. I thought this graphic was so cute and a great way to say good day to all of you.

Well, the excitement from the storm has passed. I thought for a while today that we were in for another severe storm. Toronto did get it, but it passed us by.

It was HOT today. 33.3 degrees Celsius, which is 91.94 degrees Fahrenheit, but with the humidex it was 40 Celsius, which is 104 Fahrenheit. We surpassed a record that was set on the same day in 1959.

The neighbor lady and I spent a few hours stripping wallpaper in the biggest bedroom of the upstairs apartment. We quit about 3pm because it was just too warm, even with the air conditioning. Hubby wasn't feeling good, so we had him go and pick up a couple things for us but wouldn't let him do any work. I think part of his problem was the heat and the air quality was poor as well. I don't need him taking a heart attack because he's working too hard at that apartment. I told him it will get done when it gets done and he's not killing himself to do it. I expected an argument but I got none - another sign that he wasn't feeling well.

Jack is coming tomorrow, so he will get all the mess cleaned up and we will go from there. It will all get done in it's own time.

I would like to introduce you to a blogging friend of mine. His name is Paul and he is 93 years old. He is the father of Denise at Samaritan Women. He is a great poet and tells some great stories of his younger years. Please visit him at The Poet. I love visiting his blog, reading his poems and walking with him down Memory Lane. Be sure to stop by and say hello.

Please continue to pray for Denise at Shortybear's Place. She lost her brother on Sunday and she is going through a difficult time. If you would like to send her a card, please let me know. A card shower is a lovely way to express our sincere condolences in this time of sorrow.

Have a great week and remember to do a random act of kindness. Kindness brings hope where all hope has been lost. Blessings, Mary


  1. It was 96 here today in southern Kentucky. I will pray for your friend....Mary

  2. Lots of people are in the midst of real heat waves - right now we're in the 70s, but it's supposed to head up to 90 later this week. I prefer the 70s!

  3. Very hot here too. Thanks for the tip about the poet.

  5. Mary,

    I love the graphic at the beginning of today's post. It's a smile inducer! LOL

    This heat is something else. Today is supposed to be the last day of our heat wave. Temps are expected to reach the high 90's with oppressive humidity. We sure have been experiencing a lot of extremes from winter to summer. I hope your heat wave ends soon.

    I hope Dwight feels better soon. I imagine the heat is taking its toll on him. Take care of yourself, too, my friend.


  6. Good morning........ sounds like you are getting and going on that bathroom..... it will be so nice when you finish........ and I am so glad that you missed the storms.. most of the storms in our part miss us most of the time... We have the Arbuckle mountains just south west of us and the storms hit those and split.... then go around us..... and that is a good thing except in the summer we do not get the needed rain.... sooooooooooo we will take the good with the bad....... Hope you are well and maybe things will slow down here and I will type you out an email......


  7. Mary, checking in to let you know I haven't forgotten about my RAK. I know you understand about the mess of probates and wills, but I will surprise you when it does get there. Glad the tornadoes missed you. We are in the 90s and staying indoors is best. I will keep your friend in my prayers. Hugs, Pat

  8. What a storm you all had!
    I feel like we're the only ones actually chilly right now...it's suppose to warm up after today, but I actually had to turn on the heat for awhile this morning!!! In the 50's a very wet kind of chill in the air... this is unusual for June- even for Oregon! ;)

    I will have to drop by Denise's father's blog...that is wonderful that he is blogging at his age! Lots of first hand history!
    My mom blogs but hasn't posted in a long time- but she's just a youngster at 81! ;)


  9. Great idea for the card shower. I hope that people do this. I am sending one tomorrow. If anyone needs her address they can write to me too at grandys45@bellsouth.net I think we should help out our fellow bloggers when they are so down..Thanks for doing this. Sandy

    It is 100 here this afternoon!!!

  10. I was just listening to the news and between tornadoes, floods and heatwaves happening all over, it's a frightening time of year. I'm so glad to hear that you're safe...although that broken branch could have caused a lot of damage!!

    You are so right, the upstairs apartment will get done in due time...not worth risking your and hubby's health over it!

    Thank you so much for letting us know about "The Poet", I will have to go check him out:-) How very sad for your friend Denise losing her brother so unexpectedly, my prayers are with her. xoxo

  11. Wow You have been busy while I was floating on the lake. We did do alot of work but at our pace. No one had been up there to stay since last August so guess who got to open and clean up the place for the party goer. I think a few angels were looking out for you when the limb came down. Maybe your Grandma? Tell Dwight to take it easy as the heat is hard on us Mature folks. Peace be with you.

  12. Mary, so far out here in Saskatchewan the highest we reached today was 16 C. Pretty cool for this time of year. I am glad the storms missed you. When I saw more headed your way I got worried. The weather is so strange this year.

    God bless.

  13. Hi Mary,
    I was surprised to hear you are having such hot weather! I think it's warmer there than here in FL! I was also surprised to hear you have, and need, air-conditioning!

    Take care, don't get over-heated!
