Good morning. Right now it is 77 and mostly grayish outside with a bit of a breeze. Simply scrumptious!! In a little while it will be much hotter, and most likely sunny. We could possibly get a wee bit of the wet stuff today. Gosh, I really hope so.
I looked in my photo archives and pulled a couple photos of this time in 2012. It had rained so much that all of my side yard and most of the driveway was under water.
Now mind you, I'm not asking for a flood or anything severe, but some rain would be nice. All of our water supply levels are way down, and pretty soon the cities and towns will have to go to the last stage of the water ban.
Gosh, just imagine if we had water pipelines installed across the country. There would be no drought, no floods, and probably no wild fires burning. Could the solution really be that easy? Silly me for even thinking that way.
Yesterday, Pogo and I had a nice lazy day. Cliff got most of the painting done around the front entrance to the house before he had to leave. He'll be back next week to finish it up. A lot of the other trim on the house could use a bit of paint, so maybe I'll have him do that too.
Daughter Deanne finally got an appointment for her interview with the police for her LTC. (license to carry) Unfortunately, her appointment is a month a way. They must be a lot busier in her town than in mine. The officer she spoke with did not sound very happy, so I hope her appointment goes well.
This morning I must put together a shopping list and head for the market to pick up some groceries and staples. It's also time to pick up a few cases of spring water. My supply is down to less than half a case. Pogo and I do not drink the town water. That's one way that I spoil us.
I finally picked up my crocheting again, and put a few more rows on the scarlet afghan. There's only a few more rows to go and it will be finished, so I'll probably do that over the weekend. After that, there's just one more afghan to finish and my Christmas crochet projects will be finished.
It's getting close to mid morning, so I guess I'd best get dressed and head for the market before it gets too hot outside. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a magnificent weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
