IT is only when you spend time with your friends that you learn how
special they are to you. I spend so much time at home that an occasion
to be visited and leave and go away do… I REALLY appreciate what a
real gift they are to me. I thank them, but how to put what you feel in
words is another thing.
It was unbearably hot and humid here the past few days. I was pretty
much home bound until the weather decided to break up. About the time
it did.. the wind and rain and hail and thunder came with it. One storm
after the other. The weatherman described the map like a Christmas tree
lit up with warnings and lightening and numerous pockets of storms with
heavy rain. Not the kind of thing you like to get out in..BUT we did. We
ventured out and about and when the sun came out we saw the steam rise from
the pavement like fog on a cold morning. I never saw a rainbow, but I bet there
was one someplace. The yards truly needed it. I felt bad about TAHOE and
all those people who lost their beautiful homes there. They need rain so badly
in all the western states.
This morning the wind was cool and breezy and you could actually open up
the house and let it breathe. FRESH air and not recycled from an air
conditioner. How great is that?
While I was gone in my haze of friendship… Paris got out of jail..Liz Claiborne
died,they have thousands of tubes of toothpaste being found in the US to be
tainted, England got a new Prime Minister, Tahoe went up in blazes and the
people of Texas and Oklahoma are being flooded out more and more everyday
with heavy rains. AND so it goes on and on and on….
Petunias are one of my mothers favorites. She planted them at the back of our
house every single summer for years and years. The borders were with pink and
white and red mostly. Now the border and the area is nothing but rock and trim.
Upkeep got to be too much for us. . I did get the seed packets of the
morning glories and planned on planting them until……. I misplaced the darn
package and have to track it down… Isn’t that they way things are? I will
keep looking though. I still have some time left.
HAVE A GREAT DAY !!
