Another day, another inch or so of rain that fell violently with wind, and some lightning strikes nearer than I like. I have yet to get out to WLF to see how much damage was done. I was hoping to have tomatoes all summer long, it at this rate the plants will be damaged beyond repair. I know we live in the south, and that rain is not rare, but it seems as if we are getting more than our fair share this year.
The rain also squelched any hopes of hanging out at Red’s Beer Garden for trivia. 😭
The only humor taken from the rain was looking at a weather app which declared “Cloudy for the hour, no precipitation in the area.” as I watch the two once-empty twin catching trays fill with large drops of rain.
This morning finds me with the other “irregulars” at a laundromat on Moreland Avenue. I’ve not done laundry since before heading to Florida a few weeks ago, so this chore was critical today (read “I’ve run out of clean underwear”). Because I don’t know and trust my fellow freaks I am donning a mask this morning.
This laundromat visit is also reminding me just how much I hate local “news” tv programs.
Since it’s currently 5:30am, and I have about thirty minutes remaining on my dryers, I will probably swing but Kroger to fill up on gas before returning home to start my work day. No WLF choring this morning other than going out at some point to assess the damage caused by yesterday’s storm.
This afternoon I’ll be visiting IKEA to get my birthday discount of $10. There will be no Betsy “Top Chef” night tonight as she has another commitment.
Hope your week is going swimmingly well, and that you have not been for to swim in order to get somewhere.
