and we got rain. It rained Friday night, Saturday morning, stopped for a bit in the afternoon, then started up again last night. It was still raining when I got up this morning. It has cleared off a bit right now but is to start raining again this afternoon. I now have a clean car. Hooray!! This is the first rain except for sprinkles that we have had for several weeks.
Yesterday morning I made my way out in the pouring rain to Bergners where I purchased some new sweatshirts for winter. My clothes are all way to big for me and I have started cleaning out my closet and taking things to Good Will. While at Bergners I made a donation to the county humane society. My daughter smiles at me because I give to all of the local causes. Just a couple of weeks ago I paid $15 for a tiny can of popcorn to benefit the Boy Scouts. She is forgetting that when she and her brother were young how many times we went door to door selling stuff for school or scouting benefits. I was a den mother for my daughter when she was in scouts and I remember how hard it was to get anyone to give a donation.
My chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans was a hit with my daughter and SIL as they came over and ate with me. My daughter’s friend had given her a sack of apples from her tree and I made a raw apple cake too. Everything was really good. Like an early Thanksgiving meal minus the pumpkin pie. Speaking of Thanksgiving, the river boat a few miles up the road from me is having a Thanksgiving buffet. If my son is able to come for Thanksgiving we will all go there for the noon meal.
Hey, while I have been typing this, the sun has come out for a little while and it looks so pretty and bright outside after the rain cleaned everything off.
I hope you are all having a great day. We have all been given another day so let’s make the most of it.
