Good morning Sarah and all to follow,
It is just cloudy this morning and if it's like most previous days, the sun will shine this afternoon. Tomorrow we expect rain for the entire week- never sure how much that will be- a sprinkle now and then or a steady drizzle. Portland is supposed to be clear on Saturday and I hope that is true for the Pumpkin Patch Farm we are going to near there- so much more fun if it's not a steady rain.
Yesterday I went to lunch with some of my TOPS friends - which is a wonderful way to relax after the meeting and I've noticed more and more we are making better choices for lunch. I usually have coffee because I don't get my usual morning quota on Wednesdays, but I also try to drink 2 full glasses of water at lunch and that helps me get my water in.
I'm thinking of Patty this morning and said a prayer for her family.
Today at some point I have to meet a TOPS officer to go to AAA to reserve some rooms at SRD next year. Can't remember if I told you but the coordinator who planned SRD (not the coordinator for my area - she is super) planned it for the same weekend as a major sporting event that draws people from all over the country- making getting reservations very difficult but we think we've got it taken care of.
Then my church's women's monthly Bible study is this afternoon. Somewhere in between I hope to get out and try to use our new leaf blower/vacuum. Our neighbors trees shed all over our driveway and it gets tracked into the house. They told us it's easier to get them up before it rains so that's my goal. Bruce has a driving job today.
Sarah, I think the jays in my part of the country are different from the east. We have "scrub jays" which are a sort of grey/blue but we also have stellar jays which are a beautiful deep blue, almost black with a black mask on the eyes. Both of them have very noisy, screechy noises.
Speaking of birds, I'm so glad my next door neighbor decided to quit feeding the pigeons. They were here by the droves and I think when they finally cleaned their gutters they saw what a horrid mess they make plus the rats follow the bird feeders. I used to love to feed the birds until we saw a rat run up the pole into the feeder.
Have a great day everyone.
