Freaky Clouds

Yesterday we had some freaky clouds in the skies around town. 

wave cloud is a cloud form created by atmospheric internal waves.

Pretty rare here - so of course we're all standing outside taking a photo. 

In front of Foodie's complex. 

Oh and Happy First Day of March! 

March is such a fickle month. It is the seam between winter and spring—though seam suggests an even hem, and March is more like a rough line of stitches sewn by an unsteady hand, swinging wildly between January gusts and June greens. You don’t know what you’ll find, until you step outside.

This morning I woke up with chest congestion and coughing. Just out of no place! 

I soldiered on and kept my grocery shopping commitment. I told my son, I'd have to take a raincheck on the birthday lunch at my favorite deli. It was nice to have him along because the longer it took, the more I started to feel like crap. I paid and then went to the car to wait for him to bag everything. 

I could barely get home - 

I laid down but did not sleep. I'm just not used to taking afternoon naps anymore. But the rest did me good and I am up and about again. I don't have an appetite - only for a Ricola now and then. So far I was feeling worse at the grocery store - now I just feel tired and achy with a juicy cough. I did have some orange juice and a scrambled egg. 

So it looks like this is the way I will usher in my 70th birthday which is tomorrow. Feeling more like I am older than 70 - but hey, I'm still alive! 

I'll probably peter out early tonight. 

Take Care.


PS. Blogger is at it again. At least with me. I am having a hard time uploading photos from my computer. So far no problem if I use my phone. No dice when I use my desktop. 

This 70-year-old is not in the mood for this! 



  1. I am so sorry you are not feeling well Debby. Happy 70th Birthday !!!

    1. Yeah, What a way to feel on a milestone birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday! But I am so sorry you are not well on such a big birthday! Those clouds are awesome, layers and layers of them.

  3. Oh no so sorry an illness just popped in. I never concerned myself with birthdays as I got older but when I turned 70 a few years back-it occured to me then wow I am really a senior now-haha take care of yourself and happy birtday

  4. Oh, bless your heart on not feeling good again! Prayers that you're better soon. All that shopping at the plant nursery wore me out. I feel like something the cat dragged in now instead of elated.
    FaceBook keeps messing me up. I can't tag anyone anymore. I've checked my settings and everything seems "OK". I don't get these things. Most times these 'puters are more trouble than they're worth. For real.
    Get well soon. Wish we lived closer. I'd bring you some chicken soup. Fixes everything.
    Blessings. 💙

  5. Those are some cool clouds.
    Sorry you aren't feeling well and I hope that passes quickly!
    Happy Birthday!

  6. Oh poor thing. Hope you feel better soon. Maybe then you can really celebrate that birthday.

  7. I have trouble typing on a phone keyboard, so I upload photos to a post and then go back and use my computer to add the words.

  8. Oh, I'm so sorry you have the creeping Crud. Hope it goes away ASAP. Rest is a great med...
    I'm going to say Happy Birthday anyway. Celebrate when you are 70 for an entire year!!!

  9. Happy Birthday. Hope you feel better soon.

  10. You may not have felt well on your birthday but at least it wasn't anything serious, here we are in Autumn and that means anything from more stinking hot days to somewhat cool to cold days for us.

  12. Happy Birthday. So sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope your well again soon.
    Neat looking clouds!!

  13. I call those fish clouds here. This pattern usually comes before rain around here. Happy belated birthday. Janice

  14. Wishing you a Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you get to feeling better.

  15. Not a fun way to celebrate a milestone birthday but hoping you feel well soon. Hopefully you can do your mother son lunch soon.
    I made dinner for my family on Saturday to celebrate my youngest brothers 60th birthday which was actually on Monday,
    Happy Birthday and celebrate that at 70 you have a lovely life and can still enjoy it and all around you.

  16. Happy Birthday!!! I hope you feel better soon!!!
    Sending you Wisconsin Hugs!

  17. Yea, it is a different way now to upload the pictures, but it does go to your picture file if you're on a computer. It seems like it takes longer though, ugh. I'm sorry you've been feeling sick lately. Yes, I saw the most amazing clouds in the sky the other day after it rained. And we had a big SNOW the last couple of days, and more to come. That wave cloud photo is really cool. And a Happy Birthday to you Debby!

    Take care, and get well.


  18. Wishing you a Happy Birthday a bit early. I hope you feel a bit better tomorrow so you can usher in your birthday with pizzazz.

    God bless.
