Once again, I'm sure this morning's rain came as a surprise since the weather forecast wasn't calling for it, or at least the one I was looking at yesterday.  Oh well, we needed the moisture, so thus we received.  After hearing how hot it's been ou … continue reading

After having placed many miles on my vehicle this past week, I discovered it in need of another fill-up early this morning before venturing any farther because I've never been in the liking of a gas gauge tilting below a quarter of a tank.  Of cours … continue reading

My first order of the day was to get some necessary docs together so I could scan and email them to an attorney who'll start working on them Monday morning.  As I've mentioned before, I'd rather be waiting on someone else, than to have another waiti … continue reading

It would've been a near perfect day if the humidity hadn't been as high, but at least it didn't get up into the high 80's.  After having an extended appointment yesterday, and another one this afternoon, I'd say I'm already on overtime for this week … continue reading

Thank goodness it didn't start misting until after I got some outside work done this morning.  Since the weekend is about the only time I can get some of my own chores done, if the rain impedes my planned work time, I have to find something else to … continue reading

This morning's showers were unexpected, but I guess they were needed for our fields and gardens.  We should consider ourselves fortunate for not living in other areas of our State, because those locales are under drought conditions.  It just so hap … continue reading

Ouch!  I can tell we're rapidly moving toward Fall when seeing how chilly it was outside this morning.  I was even seeing ground fog on my way to work.  We are now in the time where once the sun starts setting, it begins to cool down quickly to wh … continue reading
