Some chit chat.

I’m so happy this week is behind me. It’s been freezing. In my job, I work outside and have had to start late each day while waiting for it to warm up enough to actually work. That left me cold and tired so my blogging suffered for it. I only reviewed one book this week! But never fear, I have a bunch ready for next week. And the weather is back to 60s and 70s finally!  Doing my happy dance. LOL

Some chit chat.

Well, the first week back at work was uneventful. As was anything else this week. I did read some good books and tuned in to the telly for some fun movies and shows. But it seems the weather is utmost on my mind. Crazy stuff this year. We had a nice warm up into the 70s. Then it started to get blustery and cold Friday. Dipped below freezing overnight and freezing winds out there now. It looks like most of next week will be freakish cold too. Please let spring come. Please! LOL

Some chit chat.

It’s a new year and I’m hoping the rest of it is better than the start. These frigid temps are crazy. I know many may laugh at our dips into the 20s, but, if you’re not used to it, it’s horrible. Enough already! I can’t recall ever having a winter vortex last this long. I miss warm salty breezes, birds singing, flip flops and the pool. If I got in now, I’d probably die of shock. LOL

Remember this photo from last week? How beautiful and green this was?

20171230_110714

Well, after temps in the low 20s every night this week, it now looks like this. But, it will bounce back in the spring and probably be even larger.

20180103_121641

My banana trees got frozen. For those who don’t know, the trees are filled with water so they freeze easily. While these look dead now, once I trim them back in a couple of months they will grow quickly and hopefully I will get some bananas again this year. I’m thinking of doing a running feature about the process once I get started.

20180103_121744

 

The oranges are hanging in there. I’ve noticed the branches are dipping closer to the ground and I’m afraid they might have frozen. I’ll pick some and check them out this week.

That’s it for this week. I hope you had a Happy New Year!

Some chit chat.

We’ve had some unusual weather this winter. Don’t normally see cold snaps until later in January and February and they don’t last long. So far we’ve had several brief forays into the 30s and even got a little bit of snow, though it didn’t last long. And I’ve been lucky as my plants and shrubs, which flourished this summer, have weathered the cold well, so far.

This beauty is the biggest I’ve ever seen it and I had to trim it back. Haven’t been doing much with my green things and looks like some creepers are trying to get warm under it. And Quigley snuck in for a bootie shot. LOL To give you an idea of its size, Quigley is 100+ pounds.

20171230_110714

And with winter comes oranges. My miniature orange tree is so full of fruit the branches are dipping towards the ground. You can glimpse some of my banana trees behind it. They usually turn brown and I trim them later so they’ll come back bigger and stronger in the spring. Hopefully I’ll get more bananas to show you and there won’t be a hurricane to kill them next year.

Sorry about the finger in the photo. Didn’t notice it until I downloaded the pictures and too lazy to go take more. LOL

20171230_110731

Here’s a picture displaying their size.

20171230_110826

They’re bite sized and so deliciously sweet. I eat them peel and all. LOL

It’s hard to believe it will be dipping into the 20s tonight. And I have a feeling some of my plants will go bye bye until the spring. Not the oranges though. Unless they get really frozen over many days, they stay happy.

That’s it for this week. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and wishing you a Happy New Year!

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring… Not quite true. If you listen closely you can hear the crackle of a Doritos bag as my hand slips in for another piece of nacho cheesy heaven. LOL  My holiday vacation has begun and I’m busy reading the Hell Divers Series. What a trip. Or should I say jump. I’m going to keep this short and leave you with some awesome books and photos of my favorite Christmas decorations. I did the best I could with them. Those LED lights are intense.

I love my Christmas Starfish and Octopus!

Some chit chat.

I could have sworn I just did my Sunday Post. LOL Man is time flying. The big day is only a week away and I can’t wait. Especially for those 10 days off of work. They’re much needed.

So, I watched a bunch of Christmas shows and movies. Got me all in the mood. And then I took a left turn and binged a bunch of werewolf movies. Don’t know what took me there but I had a howling good time. One of my favorite’s is Wolfen. An older film but really well done, has an original plot, and brings out all the scares. And I finally watched one that’s been on my Netflix list fr a long time. Little Dead Riding Hood. It was kind of fun with another original plot. And I rewatched Late Phases. It’s a little known film that I really like.

And I’ve been a naughty girl. All of those holiday reads are still waiting for me. I ended up reading a bunch of paranormal investigation stories instead. I was organizing the books on my Kindles and was surprised at how many I had so I got curious, opened one up, and got stuck reading one after the other. Found some really good ones too.

How about ya’ll. Been reading those holiday books and watching the shows? Or have you been naughty?

Some chit chat.

Last week I shared photos of cotton fields and said how much it looked like snow. We don’t often see the white stuff on the Gulf Coast. But….we did this weekend. It’s been raining and bitter cold for days and Saturday night that rain turned to snow. It was later in the evening, around 11 P.M. I’d just finished watching Alien: Covenant, which was an okay movie. My dog, Quigley wanted to go outside one last time before bed. When I let him back in he had something all over him!

20171208_230051

Will you look at that. He’s covered with snow! Knowing it might not last long, I quickly grabbed my cell phone and snapped some pics. Here’s the chair on my back patio.

20171208_230225

I got up Saturday morning to see snow still hanging around in some areas so I snapped some more pics.

20171209_063854

The chairs in my back yard.

Back yard.

20171209_064034

Front yard.

20171209_064058

And my car!

I wish I could have caught pics of the stuff falling down from the sky but it was too dark out. I know many of you got a bunch of snow and this looks like nothing too you. It’s just a very rare event for the south. The weather is bouncing back to normal now and supposed to be around 60 during the day and dipping into the 40s at night next week. Can’t say I’ll miss this wee taste of winter but it was exciting.
