What the rain brought!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

This morning I got up and let the dog out. Looked out onto the lake and there were raindrops falling. I thought, oh no, I will be walking in the rain again this a.m. I decided to sit on front porch and drink my coffee and read the paper first. My husband came out after a little while with his coffee. He looked up and said "Did you see the rainbow?" I hadn't because I was reading. It was just starting and wasn't really bright in color or spread all of the way from side to side. In about 3 minutes I could see end to end and it was beautiful. It lasted about 15 minutes and I did happen to get a photo of it. I didn't have to do my walk in the rain after all....

    Love the story. I love drinking coffee on my front porch. A rainbow would make it really special.

    Very cool. I felt like I was sitting on the porch with you enjoying my cup of coffee and admiring the rainbow. Wonderful.

Child Care

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I babysit for 3 little children in our neighborhood and I just love it. I don't watch them on a regular basis, just when Mom/Dad need to do an errand or doctor appts. They are 2 1/2, 1 1/2, and 9 months (not related). Yesterday I watched the 2 1/2 yr old for 4 hours. Where do kids get all of their energy? She is just dancing, hopping, singing and moving all of the time. It is a good thing because I do these things with her and get in lots of exercise. Maybe I should count that on my cardio emoticon

    It's really nice you can watch them. Gives you something to do and helps them! I guess you CAN track it, LOL

Hotter today

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Yesterday I didn't walk until 10:00 and the weather was too hot for me. I usually walk between 6:30 and 7:30. This a.m. I went at 7:00, walked for almost an hour and I was completely soaked by the time I returned. It is even hotter/more humid than yesterday. I came back from walk, sat on front porch, drank 2 glasses of water and had a cup of watermelon balls and a yogurt. I was still perspiring when I got done with that. I read the paper and then came inside. I think the inside will be my abode for the day

    WE did have a little storm around dinner time, and now it dropped from 96 to 85. It sure is a big difference.

    Yep, I'd stay inside the rest of the day! At least til it cools off in the evening.

Hot!!!!

Saturday, June 12, 2010

It is mid 90's today. It is too hot to do anything except stay inside. I walked today, but didn't go early as usual. I will not make that mistake again. I walked at 10:00 but gardening first. Too hot to walk that late.

    It was HOT here too. 96 when I went to the spark meeting and oh so humid. Big storms late afternoon brought it to the 70's and it's 71 now still. Supposed to be the same, yet hotter tomorrow!

    I remember sleeping outside in the summer and running through the hose to cool off-but I definitely prefer the air conditioning. emoticon emoticon
