Thursday Things - August 18, 2022

Good Thursday afternoon! How your day been thus far? I hope you're having a good week.

Things are going well here. I've been working around the place most of the week and have actually accomplished much more than normal. 

Anthony mowed Monday evening and I finished up the weed-eating. It's been so dry that I don't think we've had to mow for over a month now. If we don't get some good rain soon, I don't think we'll have to worry about it again for another month, at least. We've had brief showers of rain here and there, but nothing significant. 

Dry Creek Bed on the Way to Work

Many area creeks and ponds are completely dry and it's getting harder and harder for everything out there to live. Between the effects of the heat and drought, I daresay, that it's going to be a rough winter for and beast alike.

We lost, what I consider, an extended family member this daughter-in-law, Angie's, Aunt Betty. She was a dear friend and quite a lady. She will be greatly missed and her absence in our town will be felt by all. God bless you, Aunty Betty! You were one of a kind and our family loved you very much!

She was definitely his biggest fan!

I checked the fluids, washed my car, and vacuumed it out this week. It was so dirty! With working on the gravel roads it gets that way. Soon I will make an appointment with the vo-tech school in Lamar for it's annual fall check-up. The boys at the school and their overseer have been my mechanics for years. They do a great job and for a fraction of the cost of anywhere else. 

I delivered birthday greetings to two granddaughters yesterday, then went to the store. While I was in Lamar I ate lunch at Subway and visited with an old friend (she manages the store and my daughter, Amber, used to babysit her children). Anyway, it was nice to enjoy a leisurely lunch and catch up with her a bit. 

Today I'm working in the kitchen. So far, I've made food to take to a friend and baked homemade bread. I've also made a fresh batch of hummingbird food and packaged up taco meat for the freezer. Before the day is done, I hope to wipe down the fridge and rearrange a cabinet or two. We'll see if that actually ends up happening or not! 

Carla will be here soon, so I am going to go for now. Was just sitting down to rest for a moment or two and thought that I'd say hello. I hope that you're having a great day where you're at and I'll talk to you again soon.

Until next time...

  1. It's nice to hear what you're up to my friend. I agree, this drought is getting really bad. Even with watering, my husband's veggies just are'nt growing much. The petunias and ferns out front are faring well though. Wish they were edible. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for your note. Laura
