thumbup

We are getting heavy thunder all day....it sure is grey and dreary out there.

I just looked through my leftover paint cans and see that I have enough from GG's room to paint my closet. It is a light blue-green and my room is a light brown so it'll work. I have a picture in there with blue green birds in it as well already. There is always a place to put leftover paint thumbup

And Sounds pretty, Sunny.
I guess our fire is at least 25% contained. And is no danger to us any longer. Breathing easier now. I have a house full of lovely things to eat.
I watched John Lewis' funeral today,. It was heartwarming.

Yes that sounds very nice, Sunny. Glad you had such an agreeable color of paint on hand. I can see you smiling when you are done painting. Yay !

Glad things are sounding better with the fire Tina. You sure will sleep well tonight.!
Enjoy eating your new foods.

Very tired...waiting for the dryer to finish then I will go to bed.
( Cora has told me she wants pancakes for breakfast. So you all know where I will be at 8 am!)

I am glad to hear that the fire has reached a higher containment Tina, and I wish I could share my rain.

I'm going for pancakes at 8am with Cora grin

I'm not sure what today holds. I need to paint the closet, I also need to call in a grocery order, I need to do the weeks baking and I need to hide and do nothing haha

I never found it haha Grocery order has been placed for pick up tomorrow, cookies are out of the oven, bread is rising and brownies are being mixed. Laundry is going and I'm taping off areas for the closet painting. Maybe I'll find that hiding place tomorrow.

Hey..where.are you Sunny ?? Your pancakes are getting cold.

And when you find a hiding place, do let us know where it is. I know I too would like to hide and do nothing.

Raining off and on here now.

I’ve been wanting pancakes for over a year. I need to breakdown and do it.

Speaking of paint, can it be used in cooking meth? One of the guys who works for Johnny sometimes is a meth addict and always wants any leftover paint we have. He’s mostly homeless so I wonder.

You can buy premade pancakes, Sheri..they are in the freezer section at Wal-Mart. And you can buy boxed pancake mix that you just add water to. So there are options to get your pancake fix. . ..You to not have to make them from scratch.there are other options.

haha I'll never ask for old paint again.

Just did my grocery pick-up....with the store brand that I demanded(I knew they were scamming people). All one has to do is say, 'no substitutions' and like magic every item is store brand like I asked for.

Good for you, Sunny. I wish I could order from wal- mart..I have no idea why they do things like they do. To go get my groceries and not get out of the car was ao nice...and safe.

It's nap time Junie lol

It is HOT here and humid. We are under heat warnings for two days followed by a cyclone/hurricane advisory for after that...yup, it is August.

I filled the clothesline with towels, made a big breakfast and am hiding from the heat. Any takers on doing all the dishes? haha

I bet it's hotter here, Sunny. I kept waking to turn a different side to the fan.
I see Isaias is going your direction to fall apart. I hope it is just gentle cooling rains by then.

93° here. Hot.

Junie you inspired me. I made myself pancakes and topped them with blueberries I had frozen. Delicious and I’m stuffed. Why are you up so early?

Did we decide it’s nap time?

Rodney wanted to get up early so he set his phone for 5 to beat the heat.
I thought that I would simply roll over and go back to sleep, but I was wrong.

Glad you had your pancakes, Sheri. They sound delicious. I just saw a Pioneer woman where she added shopped strawberrirs, and a few other things to pancake mix. Gonna try that for the kids next time.

Sorry for the heat ladies, Yesterday and today it was and will be cool here. High 60's & 70's yesterday..very low 80's today. Carol is happy.

Wow Junie those are cool temps for August. Are you expecting storms? I think it's supposed to be 79° here tomorrow but it's because of Hurricane Isaias.

Wish they'd come take down this tree before we get much wind.

We'll get rain and winds from Isaiais and storm surges along the bay. This weather has been drawing in lots of sharks to our waters.

Don't see many sharks here in the desert. It is one of the few perks of living here.

I'm here.

I went out early to start the lawn work...I started at 9 a.m. and just got done at 2 p.m. It is cooler today because of the fore coming weather. I will be gone tomorrow for a bit with the cat's surgery appt....I will be fine though because DH has the day off and he is driving. We are supposed to only get heavy rain. I'll check in later tomorrow afternoon.
