finally the sun

while poor texas is experiencing a terrible drought; n.y. is flooding away. today is the first sighting of the sun in 2 weeks. we have to enjoy it because more rain in 2 days. we've been very fortunate. my nephew got a call at work to come to school to pick up his kids. it took 2-3 hrs. instead of 45 mins.he had to reroute himself several times due to washout roads. those who couldn't be picked up had to stay overnight at the school including the kindergarteners who were having their first day of school. the roads are that bad and any streams are now raging rivers. hope they're willing to go back. actually the school is closed today

 

 

finally went to my orthodic guy because of the constant ankle turning. i got a swedo hinged ankle brace which fits in my regular shoes. with insurance only $27.00. however i found out one of my major problems was that my shoe had started to break down and was offering no support. stunned to see the difference a pair of supportive shoes made. i have walked for 2 days without the ankle rolling without the brace. still happy to get the brace for longer walks and security. my sisters are taking me and my niece to maine for a couple of days on the 18th to 23rd so it'll get a workout then.. it will give hubby a little break and me a great time.hope maine has some sun. i know it won't be warm.

 

i'll bring my kindle and listen to the waves. here's wishing everyone a great autumn. blessings lynn

Yea, I know the feeling. Everything here is brown, dead or burned by the sun and the fires while everything there is green, wet and water marked and stained! :big_grin: :cocktail:

Lynn, reading and listening to the waves seems a great aim for your trip to Maine. From a Doris day movie I recollect that Maine has great lobsters, maybe you could add a lobster dinner to your wish list.

 

Glad you found a brace to reduce your ankle rolling out. A dear friend of ours is confined to a wheelchair with the same problems, she couldn't weight bear at all, so it is good to know yours is fixable.

Lynn, great news about the brace and I am so glad you had success so quickly. that is sure going to make your little jaunt to Maine so much more fun. Watch for pressure areas when you take it off, be sure there is no skin breakdown anywhere and get that foot up while sitting for the evening. With the brace now, you may find more swelling after you take it off, so be sure to get it up!

 

We are in Connecticut. Live next to a tributary of the CT River which is way over flood stage, has been since Irene and like you, we waited yesterday for the clearing about mid-morning and then just took a drive, had coffee at our favorite reservoir and just soaked up the sun. Few more days, then maybe a bit of relief if Marie turns west. We shall see. Have a wonderful time and blog us when you get back. Want to hear all about it. Debbie

i'll definitely keep an eye out for redness. don't want any more problems. my niece lives in cheshire so i know you guys are also looking for some sun. hopefully we'll have a better winter this year.this weekend is going to give us a little preview as it dips into the 40's possibly 30's .this is why i hate it. we always go from summer directly to winter. blessings lynn

here's an idea. how about n.y. sends you a water pipeline and you send us a gas one? at least football is starting up to take our mind from the weather.:laughbounce: blessings lynn
