It's 4:30 a.m. and the air is just too sticky for sleeping. The temperature has cooled down nicely, but there's a lot of rain on the way in. We have a flash flood warning now for the towns a bit further south from me. Heavy rain and thunder storms are expected. We can use the rain as long as it isn't real heavy.
Our heat wave seems to be over for now. All this week our temps should be in the low to mid 70's F, and the nights will drop down into the low 60's and high 50's. This will make for better sleeping. At least for me.
I've been watching on the Weather Channel about the newest tornadoes that struck down in Oklahoma. A lot of people were in their cars driving when the tornado struck, and quite a few people were killed. When is this severe weather going to stop?
Early Sunday evening, I learned something new about my Kerri rose bush. All the years I've had it, and I never noticed this before. I took Pogo outside for a bit of fresh air and noticed that some of the petals on the little white blossoms were all curled up. Then I noticed that most every blossom was all curled up.
Nighttime was setting in, and my rose bush was going to sleep. Well how about that! Once daylight comes, I will definitely go out to see if the blossoms all open up again. Here's a photo of the blossoms open, and another photo showing the blossoms asleep.
Here's a photo I took of Pogo. He was busy sniffing all the grass when several motorcycles drove by and caught his attention. Absolutely everything fascinates Pogo.
I am hoping to get out to do a few errands in the next couple of days. It feels like I've been cooped up indoors forever. Pogo wants to go riding in the car, and I'd like to go visit the swan family. Plus I have shopping to do and a few other things that I've had to neglect these past couple of weeks. Hopefully, I'll be back to work by next weekend too. That will feel good.
Now I think maybe I'll take another shot at sleeping. The eyelids are beginning to droop nicely. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
