Miranda’s Weekend Adventure

It was a very busy weekend.  I hope all the Mom’s out there enjoyed their day!  Brava!

The Roomie had a funeral on Saturday and needed 30 minutes to decompress before her next activity on this very active weekend.  I love that she loves the Morris Arboretum.  The sun came out for a few hours so this was the best time to visit.  The brook was babbling, the early spring flowers were flowering and the fish were swimming.  Who else would we spend this time with but Mother Nature 🙂  Happy Mother’s Day Mother.

We spent some time with Cady at her house.  It was fun.  She has all kinds of stuff to use as backgrounds for pictures…

 

I got to hang from a Fork all McGuyver Style!

They have this killer lamp.  The Roomie loves things like this lantern.  I think it reminds her of The Guiding Light 🙂

I have Antlers…HA HA HA!

She also has this really comfy chair.  It’s a little far from the TV but wicked comfy 🙂

We went to Mom’s for dinner and it was delicious.  Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

The evening ended on a very sad note.  Our beloved 76ers lost in the playoffs.  It’s been a great season and we look forward to what next season brings.

Winter Storm Maya

Winter Storm Maya is just a mess.  Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain, Rain and back again.  It’s been a messy disgusting day.

We all thought this would have been a mostly rain event.  It wasn’t.

This winter has been weird.  Too much rain, not enough actual snow and below zero temps to 70 degree temps.  Not the wild ride we enjoy 😦

Okay…Someone Turn Off The Rain

We’ve had tropical conditions lately.  Very hot but also very, very humid.  Then it rains and becomes very, very steamy!

We were all blaming this guy.  Look more rainstorms behind him.  Not Cool Heaty!

 

The Thunder and Lightning was just what was left of Hurricane Alberto.

Sharkhead is really finding this weather a bummer.  He has big plans for the Summer of M&S.  He’s trying to be the star and all the rain is hampering his 15 mins. of fame 🙂

Jimmy and Eddie had fun and to them that is all that mattered.  So I guess it was a win after all, lol!

Chipper Sings Stormy Weather

The skies were angry and windy last night.  Thank goodness The Roomie went and voted right after work.  Although, a rainstorm didn’t stop her from voting last time when it poured rain.  The sky looked amazing at times.

The rains were heavy and our street looked like a river for about an hour.  We didn’t lose power so the whole group was excited by that because there was a Chopped Marathon on the Food Network!

Homie used to live outside so this storm was nothing compared to some of the Nor’Easters he had to live through.  He thought it was pretty too.  At least the humidity went away and cooler temperatures made it easier to sleep 🙂

Torrential Rains

Yesterday was crazy wet.  We drove by the local golf course and it was completely under water!  OMG!

All of the streams and creeks were flooding thus closing down a lot of the roadways.

Chipper did not care one less.  He loves any adventure, even the ones with rain and snow, lol.

We cut through the State Park to get to work and we encountered this sign.  It was okay because we weren’t going down this road…thank goodness!

This is the Crick.  Most people call it the Creek but in Philly we aren’t like most people.  It flooded so much that it took over the picnic area.  Wow!

We survived and the flooding receded.  All’s well that ends well 🙂
