I know everyone is experiencing strange weather. For us it's moisture when there should have been none and none when there should be some. We've have hail storms early, snow storms late and heat slightly sooner than expected. Strange cloud formations and then some regular old storm clouds that let your imagination run wild with high flying pigs and bunnies, a face or two for good measure and delightful rain smell, which we all know is not the rain but the plants sending out their aromas of expectation.
My grands and I have for most of their lives enjoyed the sound of rain and the accompanying thunder from our summer time vantage point, the old porch swing. This summer we have had to take refuge in the house during our storms because of the severity of the lightening strikes. There was even a traffic accident just two streets over from us when a lightening strike hit one of the sycamore trees that line that Blvd. I guess the driver overcompensated upon the loud kaboom and ended up going the wrong direction in their lane.
That particular kaboom sent GK and Ry as well as the animals all rushing into this old lady's lap. Now, granted there is a whole lotta lap but not enough for 7 at one time.
We have had the greenest grass, the most strawberries, peaches and weeds ever and more humidity than usual. But all in all the summer was very happy and productive.
We moved Ms. GK into the back bedroom and white ruffled up the joint. We moved Ry into GK's old smaller bedroom and he's happy as a clam. Joe and I have succeeded in cleaning out the mess and un needed from every room in the house. And now we will take pictures of some of the "extra" furniture and attempt to sell it on Craigslist.
Joe had vacation for 18 days in July, went back on a Monday and came home Tuesday having been told that his position was no longer available. So at 66 he has been looking for employment for the 3 weeks. To be real honest.....if he doesn't find something to do soon..................I'm gonna loose what is left of my sanity. Joe is one of those people who must have a purpose or he'll take on mine. And then the hissing and spitting begins. You know, I am fully capable of running a household, driving a car, making meals and making decisions but it's like I've dumbed down quite a bit lately.......NOT.
Pray for him, send him some good energy and me some valium.
