You are getting a smorgasbord of weather, I guess you just have to decide which one you want.

I don't use social media so the best way to keep in touch is through PM. I will check that from time to time when I login. I barely have time to make a post let alone read everyone else's. It's not even worth it to me to post if I can't see/comment what's going on with everyone else! Just wanted to explain what's going on if I vanish!

You and your families have all been in my thoughts! Hope everyone is doing well! I will post again whenever I get the chance!

Good Luck with School and we will be here waiting on you!!!!!!!!

Sorry, mother nature entered the wrong zip code for that. It was supposed to hit here since it's the first day of practice for the Indy 500 and that's how may usually goes here.

Oh boy, did we just have some whopper of a storm that just came thru here... lost power for a little while to boot! I'm hoping that it cools off just a touch because it was 85 degrees here today, too hot for this time of the year!

Lisa has decided to paint one of the bedrooms tonight, so while she's doing that, I'm going to chill out a bit and kick back and watch the Harry Potter movies that are on all weekend on ABC Family.

I'm not allowed to paint or even get near a paint brush, the last time I tried, I got more on me, the floor, the furniture, etc...than the wall I was painting. Oh, it was not pretty so I've been banished from the painting world !

Tomorrow, I think I'm going to start working in the garden just a bit since the ground is all nice and soft from all this rain yesterday and today. Well, i'm off to the world of Harry Potter.

Ps, I slipped out of the house while Lisa was upsatairs painting and went up to the store and bought a Mrs. Smith Apple pie and a 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream. I'm going to surprise Lisa with a little snicky snack for later on! heh-heh-heh...
