Dreaming of Cool Weather and Rain!!

...UNSEASONABLY HOT WEATHER IS FORECAST FOR NEXT WEEK AS STRONG HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

MANY HIGH TEMPERATURES COULD RANGE FROM THE UPPER 90S TO AROUND 105 IN THE VALLEY...WITH 90S IN THE FOOTHILLS AND LOWER MOUNTAIN ELEVATIONS FROM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

SOME LOCATIONS MAY EXPERIENCE RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES. OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES COULD ALSO BE UNUSUALLY WARM NEXT WEEK...AND RELATIVELY SLOW TO COOL OFF DURING THE EVENING.

EVEN THOUGH AUTUMN OFFICIALLY BEGINS TUESDAY THE 22ND AT 2:19 PM IT WILL FEEL MORE LIKE SUMMER THAN FALL ...
*****
Were just a few days away from Fall,
and it seems there's no end to Summer in sight around here,
and I don't think I can take much more of it...
I know, I know, alot of you are living where you're getting lots of rain right now and are most likely wishing it would end! I'm really sorry for those you...
No! I'm envious!!
We had a little rain "teaser" last week... after what seems to be endless, endless months of HOT dry weather..

It was one wonderful night of rain..sweet rain...
I fell asleep to the pitter patter of raindrops falling from the sky,
just like a lullaby from heaven...
I slept like a baby, when I woke up the next morning,
the air smelled so fresh and clean,
I took in a big deep cleansing breath and exhaled ...
It felt like I was releasing all those nasty allergens
that have been making me miserable for so long now...
I felt exhilarated...Could one night of rain really do that?
I think so!
I thought okay, Summer is finally over
YAY!!!
...But then in a blink of an eye, Summer came right back
whether I liked it or not! Boo Hoo!

So
PLEASE!
Mother Nature bring us MORE RAIN here!!
...not a flood or anything! Jut a few good soakings...

Until then
I'll be looking at these dreamy images of rain
and some listening to some rainy music to go with them...
and hoping that rain will be coming soon...









These graphics are soo cool!!
I feel better already!

I was going to say thanks for reminding me about next week. NOT! But you made up for it with those awesome pictures. I've never seen anyting like those! It's one thing to be so hot during the day, its another when it's
so hot at night!

Sherri those graphics are so neat. I feel like I should go dig out that umbrella. Did all your harvesting get done? I'm sorry that your weather is going to continue hot, but I am loving the weather we are having. Low 80's.
I just have to back and look at your images again. They are awesome.
Hugs to you friend,
June

Cool pictures! I live in the South and it has been pretty hot and humid lately.

Melissa Miller said...

Sherri those are the coolest photos! ~Lovely!It sure sounds like it has been HOT for you all lately. I hope it cools down very soon.

Thank you so much for you sweet words.
I really appreciate them so much my friend.

Things are going MUCH better the last few weeks since I have mnade the necessary changes to my diet and taking the medication. I can't even believe the results I'm getting. I'm beyong grateful. It's amazing what heathy eating will do for the body inside and out.
I just forgot to do it here for awhile....:)

~Blessings to you today and always, ~Melissa :)

Sue said...

Sherri, Those are really cool pics! Can you share where you got them? I hate to tell you that we are enjoying beautiful weather here in OH. Today it is sprinkling a little, the air is cool, but it is fall! yeah- my favorite time of year... I hope the sun comes back soon, though.

How did your harvest turn out? You must've been very busy. I need to get back to Cali soon. Our son's things are still in storage in Oakhurst and I need to make arrangements to have them shipped via ABX or some co. like them. Thanks for your tip on the spray paint. I'm off to find some today- maybe Walmart will have it.
hugs, Sue

Melissa Miller said...

Thank you for the encouragement Sherri!

I'll have to read about sea salt too and see what I can find out. I have been drinking TONS of cold water! I used to to do that too. I had forgotten and been out of the habit lately.

~Blessings my friend, ~Melissa ;)

Susie Q said...

I Sherri! I am new here and so enjoying my visit! I found you via Sue Sulivan and she heartily suggested I stop on by! I am tickled to be here!
These graphics are wonderful!!
Now I am off to read more. Oh, I added you to my blog rolls so I can return easily!
Love,
Sue

Sherri,
I love these neat photos! I've been watching the news about CA's heat wave and all the fires in the state. We have had rain of late and around 66 degrees most days. I am so not looking forward to shoveling snow.
I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. These past couple of weeks have been crazy since DH & I are sharing one car, it means 4 extra trips a day to drop him off and pick him up. Hopefully DD's Jeep will be repaired soon. Have a nice Sunday and hope things are good with you :)
