As I write this post, it has been raining steadily, and at times very hard, since early this morning. There's also been thunder and lightning! I'm really not complaining – how could I when the midwest has experienced such devastating weather the last couple of days! So very sad; I have prayed for all involved.
And we did have a few days of nice weather, sunny and warm. We even ran our air conditioning! Imagine, my northern peeps! A/C in late February, early March. Dang.
We worked Wednesday because we switched from Thursday since that was the first of the month and all of you know by now our first-of-the-month routine. :)
Thursday we did our usual thing – breakfast, bank, and grocery. I also did laundry in the afternoon and Randy was busy escorting folks to their sites.
Friday Randy worked in the morning and I worked all day. Yes, all day – from 9am to 6pm. I wanted to do that so I could have Saturday mornings to myself. Plus it would give Alicia a full day away from the office, which she really needs. And it was too bad. I was the busiest I've ever been, for most of the day. The last couple of hours were slow, but I sat and worked on my cross stitch project. Not a bad deal.
Well, having a few hours to myself this morning went down the drain (pun intended) when the rains came. Randy can't work if it's pouring rain outside. Oh, well. Another time.
This afternoon we had Forrest & Gail and Cole over for dinner; baked ziti and spinach salad.
Gail was kind enough to provide a homemade carrot cake that was simply scrumptious. And yep. I had a small piece. It was soooo good. I haven't had dessert in months. It'll be interesting to see what my blood sugar number is in the morning! :)
Now we are just sitting back in our recliners while the rain continues to pour and we watch TV. The warm weather is gone for awhile, I think, as the temps have taken a dive. The heater is back on and we're wearing our sweaters.
Tomorrow is church in the morning and a lunch meeting with Andy and Alicia in the afternoon. Hopefully, the rain will subside. If not, we'll be hunkered down in our little abode, staying warm and dry.
Hard to believe February is over and we're already three days into March! Guess it's a good thing when time speeds by; means we're having fun, huh? Until the next time . . .
