Rain, rain, and more rain.

That's what is suppose to be in store for us the next 3 or 4 days.  It is really needed to I guess having to stay inside won't be to hard to take.  The dog may not like it, but it is what it is. 
We realized  Jodi, Danielle's and Jack and I all had some steaks in the freezer.  Yeah, steak fry, so yesterday we grabbed whatever else we could find and threw together a cookout.  Jack did make a trip for sweet corn, and added items were onion rings, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, cottage cheese and antalope for dessert.  Sometimes spontaneous turns out really nice.
 You know over the years all the things you go through as far as furniture etc.?  Styles change along with tastes.  As I was admiring my new sofa and chair yesterday I realized the lamps on the entables are as old as our marriage.  We bought them with our first living room set when first married.  50 years and they still light up our lives. They along with our dressers are all that is left from that time.  Glad to know we're not the only 'old farts' in the house, tee hee.
What to do today?  Something constructive or read.  Decisions, decisions.  I suppose a little of both would be a good thing.  It's not like we can't always find something is it.  Hope you all have a great day.  Hugs to you.


  1. Our weather has been about as perfect as it could ever get lately...a strange event for the normally hot and dry August in these parts. We are enjoying the last weeks of summer break before going back to the grind. We got free entry into our fair so the kids are thrilled...that seems to be my highlights...thrilled yet? ;)

    1. Yes, I'm thrilled, sounds great to me Joe. Didn't get to the fair here.

  2. OH I want to have been there for that feast! And I want to see the lamps! You are a joy to know.
