July, Day 2


Do everything with a good heart
and expect nothing in return
and you will never be disappointed!



We had a Sahara Sandstorm over the weekend and it wasn't a pleasant thing.  Many friends had allergy attacks and many, like me, just stayed in.  With my COPD I wasn't about to venture out. The skies were a smoggy blue-gray color, I would have it would have been more of a sandy color. Fortunately it's moving out and skies are clearing.  The good thing is they say it's going to help keep hurricanes away!!


Hope you have a happy and blessed day.

  1. Here in Arizona, we just get sandstorms with the yellowish sky this time of year. Hoping it will keep the hurricanes away from you! Glad the storm didn't affect your COPD adversely. God bless you, Mary!

  2. So glad the sandstorms over Miss Mary. I can't imagine nor do I want too. That is awful. The heat has kept me inside more this summer than ever. Unless I am right there where I can get into some water to cool off or under a tent, I just can't do long periods of heat anymore. KILLS my breathing! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Arlene, we seldom have them this bad. It came across the Atlantic from Africa.

  4. Mary, I lived in Odessa, for about three years, and I can't tell you how many sand storms I saw. I guess what they say about sand storms and hurricanes is true, because I never saw a hurricane come through Odessa...not a single one! LoL Just kidding but I do hope it is true in your case!

    Grace & Peace,
    Pam

  5. I hope you never get another sand storm and I sure hope no hurricanes come your way either.
    The plant in the photos is beautiful. Always loved those and I am in love with that pot! So pretty.

  7. I am so glad you were able to stay indoors. I was thinking about you and praying you were okay. I also heard on the Weather Channel that it might keep the hurricanes away...I do hope they are right. We don't need any more of those for a long time...I know you agree. Have a blessed and glorious 4th of July! Try to stay cool!!

  8. I'm glad you were able to stay indoors and be protected from all the blowing sand. Have a lovely 4th of July!! ( We just celebrated Canada Day on the first ( yesterday) with our annual family BBQ)

  9. I'm so glad you stayed in where you could breathe. That would have been so hard on you. I bet the heat is, too. It's so hot and humid in Tennessee...it's affecting my breathing this year, but I'm getting older, too...sigh! Happy 4th of July, precious Friend.

  10. Wow! Thankfully you stayed indoors. I never experienced a sandstorm. Here we had a week of horrible triple digits temps and dew point of 105. I too stayed indoors and my a/c got a terrific workout. LOL! Have a blessed weekend my friend. Love the plant!

  11. Love your patriotic theme here for the month of July...and your patriotic flower pots! So cute!

    I'm so sorry to hear about the sandstorm. That is one thing I've never experienced and I really don't care to. I'm glad that you were able to stay in!

  12. I need to work on that "expect nothing in return" part and I'll be fine. Genuine and simple gratitude is in short supply with some people. Thanks for the reminder.
