I woke up at 6 am on Friday, August 4th and tossed and turned until 6:30 before I got up. Bill and Clemson were still sound asleep. There were a few indications of brief sunshine this morning in the otherwise cloud-filled sky. This was encouraging; however, I knew from the forecast that after 8 we were going to have a wet day. That’s okay as long as it isn’t too ‘powerful’. I have some inside things I can do on a rainy day.
|Pretty sky with some promise|
Bill was up by 7:30 and after his reading and coffee he took the truck over to fill the water bladder. When he returned I was on the floor in the Suite pampering my toes and toe nails. With a wedding tomorrow and sandals will be afoot, I like to have pretty feet.

|And then the rain makes an appearance|
|Good old bottled water for me and lots of it|
|The rain on our patio table appeared to me like broken glass|
|Cattails down at the road around the pond|
|Moo to you too!|
|Our water receding in the front field|
|The turtles all slipped off the tree before I arrived|
|My mint plants are producing these little fluffs|
We couldn’t count on the weather for outside cooking so planned an inside meal tonight. We had a large steak in the fridge that had previously been barbecued so I spread sauce on it and heated it in the microwave for a few minutes. Bill cut up a couple of potatoes into cubes and our little deep fryer cooked these up like a pro. Supper was very good and we were cleaned up from eating and dishes by 7.
|The sky showed promise around 7:30 but not for long!|
|Ending with a quick blurred shot of my painted toes|
Thank you for stopping in today. I’d love to hear from you.
