Weekend

Thursday, July 29, 2010

We are packing up to go to WV to visit with friends that we have known for almost 40 years. They have a motel and we will be staying there. Part of the time, my honey will be a half hour further up the road at his hunting camp. They are having a work weekend and all of the guys are going to get some maintenance done. The hunt camp has a brand new house, just built less than a year ago. The old house (which was torn down) was over 60 years old and just made of cinder blocks and no insulation. The new house has 3 big bunk rooms,
2 1/2 baths, all the modern appliances in kitchen, a big eating area, living room, and a laundry room. There is a porch all across the whole front of the house for sitting and relaxing and a nice sized deck on the back with a grill. So different from before. The new house is so nice that this summer, the guys are taking their families there to get away for quiet weekends. The other house was so old and musty that the families wouldn't go. lol..lol... Hope all of you will have a great weekend. Nancy
P.S. The weather there this weekend will be 70's in the day time and 50's at night. A big relief from all of the sweltering temps here.

It's Raining again

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

The storm we got Sunday night left us almost and inch of rain in about 45 minutes. It is raining here this morning and we got about 1/2 inch in less than an hour. I was going to walk at 6:30, but it is still raining. BUT if it is still raining at 7:00 I am going anyway. Neither my walking buddy nor I mind walking in the rain. We will go as long as it is not STORMING. The temp really isn't much better than before the rain, but we will have a little precipitation to keep us a little cooler while doing our walk. Good way to start the day.

Carla went home :o(

Monday, July 26, 2010

Carla (RUNA5K2010) left last evening to go back to VA. Today sure was lonesome without her and the grandkids, even though they are adults and one young adult..Meghan who is 15. We had a great weekend just being together. It was too hot to go out so we mostly stayed in the house. Wii games were played and at one point, 5 of us were on our laptops in the living room. We had a really bad thunderstorm last night about an hour after they left for home and I just prayed they didn't hit that storm. Carla said they had lots of thunder and lightning but very little rain. We got almost an inch in about 40 minutes. I have never seen that much lightning so continuous and the thunder was also continuous. I do believe that is the worst thunderstorm I have ever seen, not counting any hurricanes. WELL guess what, it didn't effect the temperature ....it was still really hot and muggy here today. Nancy

So hot

Sunday, July 25, 2010

OMG the temperature is 98.9 with a heat index of 117. That is just so...so....hot. It is so humid you can hardly walk out of the door. In fact, I am not going out the door. I know you guys must be tired of hearing me talk about the heat, but I can't remember it ever being this hot for so many days without a break. Carla is still here and she said when she checked weather bug for her house the temp is 103 and the heat index is 120. So, as bad as it is here, it is worse there. We didn't even go to the pool because the water is like bath water. I think we are supposed to get a break next week.

I didn't see him

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Arlene, I ran down to Fayetteville to look for Santa last night when he came through this area, but I guess I missed him. We waited for some time and listened for his sleigh bells, but to no avail. I guess he will continue on to NY and hopefully when he tries on his red suits, we will have given him our pounds and they will fit.
