YES!! It is raining here in central Illinois. A nice steady rain for the last couple of hours with hardly any lightning, God is good!!
From my front door and from the back door where you can also see the ‘tree’ that I take a picture of each month with the cemetery in the background. Click to make pictures bigger.
Yesterday was a good day for hitting the garage sales. Hot but humid reaching the mid 90s. The mid 90s are nothing after the week of 100 – 105 temps we had all last week.
At a garage sale yesterday a boy about 8 with a slightly older sister were manning their garage sale. (I was praying that the mother was close by keeping a watchful eye on them) There was a big table of coloring books and young children’s story books, most of them brand new. I asked the boy how much these books were as I have a 3 year old great great niece here in town (yes, I meant to say great, great) and my daughter is in charge of the nursery at her church. This boy told me that the more you buy, the better the deal. He was so serious, I just started smiling. He really made my day. We settled on $1.25 for 11 books. I feel that kid is destined to go far, probably in politics!
I also got a few hardbacks, some DVDs, and 3 cookbooks. And a huge new Christmas tin that will be perfect for holding my homemade fruit cake while I have it soaking in the rum. Less than $10 total spent. Then my daughter and I ate at Bob Evans. It was a very nice morning although very tiring.
The rain has stopped now but I am thankful for each drop we got. I hope you all have a pleasant weekend. Stay safe and be happy!1
