It was much cooler today but the humidity was up. My friend Lucy sent a message that they were getting lots of hard rain. Lucy lives the next town down south of us. I had heard thunder but the clouds didn't look like rain. I then got a message from my daughter Tracy and she said they were getting  lots of rain in mid town. The thunder had stopped and I went about cooking. There was a huge clap of thunder so I went out on the porch to see what was going on. I couldn't even see the mountains to the south of me. It had cooled down about 15 degrees and the wind was up. I went back in to shut things off in case the power went out. Didn't want the laptop or the a/c to get the power surge, I had already shut down the tv after Directv went out. I opened the widows and the door and just turned on the ceiling fans to get a nice flow going. When the rain hit it hit hard. It maybe lasted for about 15 min. and then boy did the humidity come up. Closed up the house again and turned on the a/c.

Sunday, after we go out for breakfast my daughter and I will take the bed out of the truck and put it back in the front bedroom (which is Freds room) I am also going to bring in one or both of the wicker chairs from the porch. I will use that room for a sitting room and craft room. There will still be plenty of room for Fred. There is more light in that room so it will be good for working on crocheting or reading. 

I organized my yarn today and put it in some baskets I had other things in so those things also were orginized and some of it eliminated. A bag is growing for donations.

Good Night All


  1. Feels good to get things organized I know! Today we had high heat indexes, and I tired to stay inside most of the day went to goodwill and found a couple things I can use One picture frame I needed 2, hope for one another time. Stay cool!!

  2. We had a large thunder,lightning storm last night and some rain. Very pleasant weather to sleep. We just got done taking a partial suv load to charity. Still on it, too much stuff here. How are your flowers doing? I have 2 that I nurse along.

  3. So do you plan on camping this summer, and how are you going to do it? I remember you not being happy with the bed situation in the truck. I like to set up my tent, although I've always wished I had an alternative way to sleep in my vehicle if I wanted or needed to.

    Enjoy the rain (although the humidity isn't very enjoyable).

  4. Hi Sondra,

    My friend and I were just talking about 2nd hand stores yesterday. So that maybe be a trip this week some time. Find pictures frames at Good Will lots of times. Hope you find another soon.

    Hi JMD,

    Don't you just wonder what made you collect all that stuff to begin with. I think about that all the time, WHY?

    Hi Gypsy,

    I don't know what I will be doing as far as camping goes this summer. I still have a cot I can throw back into the truck for camping. But to escape the heat I would have to go to the White Mountains and I just can't breath up there. Believe me not going is killing me. So I will try to stay busy and change things around the house for amusement.
