Good morning everyone...not long been out of bed, had breakfast and now relaxing with a coffee

I have a couple of things to go out and do this morning, but a relaxing afternoon in the recliner for me...feeling a bit tired the last couple of days

What had everyone been doing today?

I'm having a coffee and wishing I didn't have to go to work and then go away for the week for a company conference when I could be home cooking :)

Thanks Addie. I didn't have to pick him up. By the time he was in my neck of the woods, the rain had stopped.

Just cleaned out the ice chest, gathered up the non-perishables (sunscreen, disposable plates, towels, etc.) and getting ready for a nice picnic day at the river tomorrow with my daughter and grandchildren.

It's raining pretty steadily. It was coming down hard enough that the rain drops were bouncing about a foot off the pavement.

It's barely over a block from the bus stop, but the way it was coming down, that would have soaked him to the skin.
Please send some of that rain to South Dakota, we really need it!

We had a good soaking today for about 15 minutes, waiting for the weather report to see if it helped up the valley and slowed the fire.
