There's A Storm Coming!

August 20, 2021

Good morning.  It's nice outside.  Gray, but nice.  My phone app isn't showing any rain until tomorrow, but it's not always right.  We'll just have to wait and see.  

One of the dwarfs tried to pick up some popsicles for me at a local supermarket this morning.  But they had none.  The manager said that maybe they would have more next week.  I guess when they are back in stock I'll have to buy some every day until my freezer is full.  I can get by without a lot of things.  But my popsicles!   With or without sugar, these are a must have!

Some of the postage stamps that I had ordered arrived in today's mail.  I wasn't aware that there was going to be another price increase on the stamps when I ordered these stamps, so I made another order.  I should be all set for a while.  

If these increases in stamp prices keep coming, I'll have to rethink how I pay my bills.  I guess I won't be alone in that boat.  It's sad to think that the day of no more mail delivery might be coming sooner than we think.  If we can't afford to buy the stamps to put on our mail, then we won't be mailing anything.  No stamps, no jobs, no mail delivery.  Sad.

I have an awesome photo to share with you this morning.  Last evening, Audrey sent me tis photo that she took from her back door.  Yes, that is the moon to the left.  

Have you ever seen a cloud like this?  I haven't.  I tried looking it up on Google, but the closest things I found were called Fire Clouds, and most of them were redder.  Strange!  But beautiful.  Thank you Audrey for sharing.

Now I have to keep an eye on the Weather Channel.  It seems like we have a storm (or hurricane) headed our way.  "Henri" is looking to bring us a lot of rain and flooding this weekend and into the beginning of next week.

On that soggy note, I'll take my leave, and enjoy some blog reading.  So, until Sunday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.  

Hugs, Edna B.

Yes, there are some things, we just HAVE to have in stock, like you your popsickels. Right now I just can;t think of anything, but I must have several things, hahah.
Stamps here are hetting more and more expensive too. I am still lucky that i can send in bank transgers in stampfree envelopes of the bank.
But slowly we are pushed into using internet banking only, and email, because by letter and post it will cost too much.

Hope the storm Henri will not pass right over your area. A lot of water and flooding isn;t something to look forward too(and loosing power etc.).

Still looking for nice and easy sweater patterns, have some but cannot decide yet.

Have a great day,

I think the post office nowadays makes money mostly from bulk mail (like junk mail) and parcels, because few people mail letters or bills anymore. I never mail anything in an envelope. I haven't bought stamps in years. I pay all my bills electronically.
