We go from one extreme to another around here.

While the temps have dropped for awhile into the  90s the humidity has gone to 84% with dew point of 64, so we know we are into full blown monsoons now. It has been cloudy most of the days and I guess we had really good rain last night as the street has lots of water standing around. They are predicting rain for the next 3 days. Not complaining at all we sure need it as always here in the desert.

One of my granddaughters is graduating tomorrow night but I don't think I will make it since I can't drive in the dark and if it is raining it will be much worse.. Also there is road work going on in that area once again. Maybe we can meet for lunch next week. If I thought it would be a straight forward ceremony I would go since it starts at 5:30 but they had every principal of every school at their last graduation last month that it took hours for the kids to get their diploma's. This graduation is indoors and I guess that means it's a small group. But just don't know. There are a few hotels in the area but they are really expensive and then I have Fred at home so that isn't  going to work.

Oh well that's life.

Have a great day and if I am not back before have a safe and wonderful holiday and remember why we have a 4 Th of July


  1. Im sure your Grand daughter will appreciate a personal one to one lunch more than just having you in the audience. Glad some rain has come...I worked outside today till 2:30 then it got so hot had to come inside. I have no plans for the 4th only to lay low and celebrate my "girlz" 8th b-day!

  2. I don't know why some schools drag out the graduation ceremony. You know the kids just want their diploma and then celebrate!

  3. Thankfully it rained hard and temps dropped enough to turn off air. :-) I think the lunch idea with your grand daughter sounds wonderful and very special.

  4. Hi Sondra,

    Yes she seemed fine with out meeting for lunch next week. So that made me feel better.
    Be careful working out there in the heat. No plans here either. I have a little fillet steak I can put in the toaster oven broiler and make some sweet potatoe fries in there too with a salad on the side.

    Hi Gypsy,

    This school gets carried away with there program. I'll have to admit the fire works were great afterwards.

    Hi JMD,

    We sure had one heck of a storm blow through here today, hail and pouring rain with high winds. But it was only cool while it rained then it was nasty hot and really humid.

    I will love seeing her and I hope my grandson comes too. I don't get to see them much they have such busy lives and I love that for them.
