Another Thursday…

It is Thursday already.  I complain each time it happens; I don’t like Monday holidays.  If we are celebrating something let us do it on the day this something actually occurs.  Monday holidays were fine when I worked for civil service because they celebrate just about everything and it was nice getting so many extra days off with pay.  Now a Monday holiday just messes up my routine.  Today really should be Wednesday.  And all long time bloggers know that Wednesday is the official rant day in Blogland.  What if I had an actual rant and I had let Wednesday pass me by? HA!!!  You all know me, I would have put my rant out there whether it was Wednesday or not.   Whew, I am sure glad I don’t have anything to rant about today.

I am just home from grocery shopping.  I bought all of the bargains.  Some lovely strawberries at $1.50 a pound.  I know I must have eaten 1/2 lb of them while I was fixing them for the freezer.  YUMMMM!!!!

It is pouring down rain here, finally.  We are way below normal on the rain this year and the ground has been getting brown and crunchy.  It is also chilly at only 50 degrees right now.  I have jeans and a sweatshirt on, yesterday it was shorts and a T.

This will be a good afternoon for me to finish a book I started by Linda Lael Miller.  She is one of my favorite authors.

Time has flown again what with me running around getting soaked this morning.  I will say goodbye for today.  Stay safe and be happy!!

  1. Funny how when you're home all the time it gets hard to tell what day it is, but I know what you mean. It felt like Wednesday this morning. ;) Happy almost the weekend, Beth! :)

  4. With temps here in Phoenix expected to climb to 109 this afternoon, a cool, rainy afternoon with a book sounds perfect! Enjoy!

  5. I too would like to celebrate the holiday on the day it is. I'm surprised they haven't changed 4th of July to a Monday!

  8. I just have to say hello, Beth. I am somewhere where the Internet connection is not a "given," so I will be missing your posts for a few days.:-( Have a super week-end!

  9. I admire your daily posts, Beth. Maybe someday, I will blog more often. At present, there is so much needing to be done by one whose body is slowing down. Oh, well I can enjoy yours. Happy tomorrow! BGB

  10. Cool and rainy down here too...never got above 60. (2 days ago it was 98). Makes my head spin...

    I am reading a Faye Kellerman novel called Burnt House. I love the mystery thriller/forensics books. Heck--I like just about any books. lol

    TTFN !!!

  11. It figures that once it begins to warm up here again then it cools down elsewhere...strange how that can happen. It sprinkled a little here but it stopped and now it's still sixty degrees...much better than it's been. I sure know what you mean about holidays making the whole week seem a day or more off. Our long weekend was really quiet so it doesn't seem so odd for me...counting my blessings in that!
