Sudafed - I can take one and have an effective antihistamine effect; take two and I'm climbing the walls.

This morning I sat up straight in bed thinking it was Sunday and I'd forgotten a regular Saturday night post I always put up for a site I work on. As I scrambled to turn on the computer and bring up the software a little time passed and I realized it was Saturday morning, not Sunday. I can't say that happens very often any more, since retirement.

I hope R's kidney stone procedure went well. My next door neighbor had three different attempts to get a particularly large stone last year, and he's much more comfortable now.

It's overcast today, but the not-quite-tropical-storm that was headed for the coast hasn't reached this area with it's bands of storm clouds. I suspect this cloud cover is the result of the regular SE directional weather stalling in the face of that front pushing to the NW. It is hurricane season, though it usually means rain here at the most, not the heavy weather since we're several hundred miles NW of the Gulf of Mexico. We're in that time of year when just keeping the garden alive is the goal, it won't be producing much until fall. Keeping a patch of turf green in the back yard for the dogs, and occasionally watering out front to keep the encroaching St. Augustine grass alive (because it's better than the weeds I did have growing here). The cucumbers are seedlings now, the okra are perking up and growing larger. The tomatoes are almost completely dormant and I think I pushed back the encroaching leaffooted bug nymphs that will suck plants and crops dry if not treated. I'm hoping for homemade pickles this fall, cucumber and okra.
