October 1, 2010 Friday
I am glad Thursday is done and over because it was an experience to say the least. It rained and rained by the time we got done we had 5 1/2 inches. Yard is partially flooded so no cutting grass for a few days. By the time I can cut it is going to rain again.
I had just decided to get my hair curled because I had to go to the doctor for my eye on Friday. Getting ready to turn the laptop off and everything went off. No curling nothing so I felt my way to the utility room and took out the flashlight.
Went back in the rooms and tried to remember to turn everything off so when it came on it wouldn't wake me. I went to bed and really didn't sleep sound because it started pouring rain and wind beating against my bedroom walls. It was about 5 this morning when we had the electric restored. Didn't make it too the doctor because I was tired and hurting and when I called I couldn't get anyone. They may have had a problem from the storm.
The pool almost overflowed its sides and that would have been something to see.
The pool was closed today and the wind was really blowing but they got it on. I talked to the owner of the pool business and asked him if he could fix up something for me to heat the pool next year. Lucky me he had devised a system and put it on other peoples pools and they are swimming till December. It is just putting pipes around the pool and let the sun heat the pipes and run the water into the pool. He said the pools get 85 degrees. Summer I don't need it but May, June, September and October I would. It won't cost me and arm and leg at least. I won't need any heater or lines to the shed and so on.
So I have all the plants in, pool closed, house cleaned totally, and back broke. HA, HA. Now I just have to get the grass cut and the rest of the things in the garden in and that will be the end of warm weather work.
Now time to change exercises, keeping the house up and relaxing a little. I made some spaghetti meat sauce tonight and when little one comes tomorrow I will see what kind of noodles she wants. Her team is in first place and she was in the newspaper for high series and handicap series. I am going to make her a scrapbook of her bowling papers and newspapers.
Well, that is it for tonight and I hope everyone made it through the storm. My prays are with the ones that didn't fare good.
God bless all my Spark friends and I will catch you tomorrow.
