Tornado Warnings

The past couple of days we have been experiencing some pretty severe weather around here. We will suddenly have a horrible thunder and lightening storm, with buckets of rain coming down and then bamm, it’s gone as fast as it came. The roads are constantly flooded, trees are down, power is interrupted, the whole kit and caboodle.

Today we had the same storm come and go and now the weatherman is talking about tornado warnings, sigh……. These storms cause so much damage, year after year after year…..

Memorial Day

They say that a lot more people are going to be on the road this year for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. It seems that people have cut back these past couple of years so much that they feel that they need and deserve this long weekend and are going for it like it’s now or never. Wish I had plans to do something fun and exciting, but it’s not in this year’s cards for this gal.

Never Forget

2016 Memorial Day

Hire A Mover Online

It’s pretty cool that you can go online to to search and select the type of helper that you need in so many aspects of our busy lives. For example, my brother is looking for some moving help for when he and his bride re locate in the summer. He Googled Santa Monica Movers and came up with a wonderful website that he has enlightened us all on with his latest email.

It seems that they can offer you an instant quote and you can learn all about the movers santa monica ca right online. You can read their profile as well as read previous reviews in order to make the right choice for your needs. It has a lot more to offer than just low cost movers santa monica  for residential as well as commercial issues where you can find up to date information on all types of homeowner topics.

When you are making a long distance move, such as they are, you really can’t expect friends and family to help pitch in with the moving process as so many of us depend on when moving locally. It takes a special kind of people/business to offer good quality and affordable moving assistance from a company that has been around for a while.

It’s funny how my ex husband ended up selling his pick up truck because he was tired of people calling him asking him to help with such tasks. He traded it all in for a pretty cool SUV and couldn’t be happier with his decision. Although I can tell you that he never lifted a finger to help me out since we broke up, pick up truck or not!  But that is another story for another time. In the mean time I wish my brother and his wife all the luck in the world when they arrive in their new home town in sunny California.

Can You Smell Spring?

I can smell it in the air. We are all ready experiencing the April showers that we need for the May flowers and it’s only the beginning of April. But that is OK, anything is better than snow at this point. We are expected to get into the 70’s later this week, I’m all for that!

I’m itching to get my hands into the earth and start my gardens and really get into some heavy duty yard work. I enjoy working outside as long as isn’t it freezing outside. I have got some nice Decorative Planters that I want to get going soon that I found online a few months ago. The house that I grew up in had the nicest Window Box Planters in the neighborhood and I have wanted to start my own for a long time, so I’m excited about getting them all going and looking good for the up and coming season.

My mother was always so proud of her handy work outside of the house. I know that she will be proud to see that I’m taking the time to try and get my own house and yard in order. She gave me a very nice High End Planter for Christmas that I plan on placing on the front porch. I just haven’t decided which type of flower(s) that I want to plant there. I still have a little bit of time before having to make a decision. Maybe I’ll ask my mother for her opinion, she likes it when I do that!

Costa Mesa in Orange County

Today I got some exciting as well as some sad news. One of my best friends, since childhood, is moving. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for her, she is moving out to the Orange county area in the southern part of beautiful and sunny California, which is totally awesome. It’s just that it is all the way across the country and I just wish I could go with her!

She is now busy online getting costa mesa movers estimates, trying to find the best costa mesa movers that will give her more bang for her hard earned buck. The Internet is a great resource for tasks just like this one. I’m only familiar with our Local Movers, so I can’t help her out there much. When I moved I just looked in the local Yellow Pages and found the Local Moving company with the biggest ad in the book, the Internet was just catching on and I didn’t use it that much back then. Now you can find costa mesa moving company quotes with just a few short key strokes on any computer hooked up to the Internet.

I guess one day maybe I’ll have enough money to be able to fly out there for a nice long visit. Lord knows I couldn’t handle a long drive that it would take to get out there. She is going to be real close to the beach, so that will be cool. I’ve never been to California before. Life is crazy, this just came out of no where. But I wish her all the luck in the world. I am totally grateful for all of the ways there are available to us in order to keep in touch until the day comes that we can see each other face to face some time in the future.
