I had the best time! It's been such a long time since I got to go. My boy was gracious to ferry me about to all of my favorite places and I swear my wallet had flames coming off of it, I had it whipped out for payment so many times!
It was sunny until Saturday afternoon whereupon it started raining. It rained the rest of the day, all night and man, did I have heavy hard hard rain ALL the way home to my driveway--- every inch of the way. There was hard rain, there were clouds low in the mountains along with the rain and the mist thrown up by cars and the zillions of trucks on I-40 with the rest of us was very difficult to see through. I remembered that which I read several years ago. That being to put on your polarized sunglasses. That works to help you make out signs overhead and along the road through all the clouds and rain as well as road hazards and even the trucks ahead. And it does not make it too dark to drive despite them being sunglasses in the deep gloom. If I heard correctly, we had record rainfall here in my town for the weekend. The pet sitter had some dogs to take out before she got to Katie and she said what with the dogs' reluctance to go out in the driving rain to go to the bathroom if you will, she also had to dry them when they came back in. She said she was so glad the weekend was over when I called to tell her I was home.
Hope you like my dogwood flowers. They are from my own dogwood here in the yard.
It took awhile to put things away when I got home. That's great because that meant I had a great time. Katie got a new pretty dish to drink from and she told me she didn't like it and bring back the old one which I obediently did.
I get to go see my colleagues today for lunch. It's a mixture of those who are working and those who aren't. But always fun and full of ear splitting loud talkin' noise. Just the way I like it. Makes me smile just thinking of it.
Gotta get ready..see you soon. You think the raspberry colored linen top will do? I have two new linen tops. One crushed orange they call it and one raspberry. Both are more pastel however. I'll haul 'em out and you decide, what say?
