Tuesday: Cleaning up after Irma

We spent today cutting up fallen branches and limbs left behind by Hurricane Irma.  I don't think I realized how much there was to cut and move, until we actually had to move the cut branches to the curb. The pile of limbs is extensive.  The county has contracted with companies to pass through  neighborhoods and pick up the yard waste/ limbs. Next, we will have to get out there and pick up all the tiny pieces that the mower won't be able to handle.

Below is a video of the very beginning of Hurricane Irma.  Yep. This is why we had to pick up and tote branches to the road today.

The animal shelter has been closed to the public since Hurricane Irma was here.  Our volunteers are allowed to go tomorrow and get the dogs out of the kennel and let them get some much needed exercise and fresh air.  We are fortunate to have volunteers available to walk the dogs during week as most of our volunteers are working.  The shelter has about 80 dogs, so it will be a long day.

One of our fantastic volunteers!

On the plus side,   I did manage to cook dinner two days in a row.  Yep, that is kinda a big deal around here.  I have been struggling with not always eating out.  It's a long story and probably easier to say it is more of a mental thing. Anyway, small victories are a good thing.

Monday: Grilled cheese and soup
Tuesday:  French Toast and bacon
Wednesday:  I am hopeful

Yes,I do know that eating in saves bunches of money.  Its been a work in progress.

  1. Good Day everyone, just want to share my experience here so you all should be more careful when contacting any herbalist for solution cos majority of the testimonies are fake and were the ones that fooled me.they all uses the same local code number (+234) cos i have been screwed by some of them.My Husband was suffering from Hsv for years and i went everywhere to get useful information that will help cure or suppress the disease.then i came across testimonies of those that took my hard earn money without any useful information or cure but they keep telling stories.about two months ago, a new staff was employed in my place of work and when He heard about my Husband Disease He was so remorseful and told me about Dr Emmanuel.but i felt it was still one of those Internet guys so i didn't call or text Dr Emmanuel. later that week, He asked me if i`ve heard from Dr Emmanuel and he gave me proof and reasons to try.well, lots of thanks to Dr Emmanuel cos as im writing this message, my Husband is CURED through the herbs that Dr Emmanuel sent to after my experience, i decided to save some people from falling to the hands of SCAMS.thx for your time and if you require the service of Dr Emmanuel, you have to reach him via email:  or WhatsApp/Call +2348140073965
