STORMY SUNDAY

Joined hubbie and daughter in church this morning. #1 son didn't have a good night last night so they didn't make it today. Uplifting sermon and wonderful fellowship completed a very nice Sunday morning.
We fixed lunch and ate with daughter,then #1 son's family came ,#2 son is back from Los Vegas ,but only got home this morning sometime between when hubbie walked to get the paper and when daughter left at 9 to attend a Sunday School teachers meeting so he is still sleeping.
It started thundering in the early afternoon but we got only light rain while some of the neighbors around the county really got hammered with hard rain and wind and lightening.This tree took a direct hit of lightening !

After everyone left, hubbie and I went washing machine shopping,we looked at Sears, Home Depot and Lowes. I was looking at the same machine in all 3 stores , Sears - $518
Lowes- $549 and Home Depot $448 and after a 10% energy saving discount and a $25 discount for hubbie opening a new credit card account, the final cost was $380.
It pays to shop around !!!!After researching and talking to several people who have tried the new front and top loading machines I decided to go with the old stand by Maytag just like the one I have now.
They will be delivering it Wednesday.
With that task over I get to mark that off my to do list for this week.

#2 son came up and had supper,he said that would be his last trip to Vegas. He wasn't as lucky as he has been in the past,but he only lost $50, he usually at least wins enough to pay for his trip but not this time. He said it was so hot,during the day it was 115 and when they boarded the plane last night at 11:00 Vegas time it was 104,whew, even with less humidity that's still hot. He said he hated going on vacation and coming home tireder than he was when he left.
He took "Flash" and went home where they could get settled back in before dark.
As I went to shut my chickens up this evening I was greeted by this beautiful partially clearing sky.
A fitting sign-off for another wonderful Sunday.
Thanking God for all my blessings today and everyday.
Good Night and God Bless.

Beautiful sky, Marilyn. Glad you got some much-needed rain. We had one quick little storm in the mid-afternoon --and our rain gauge showed that it was about 1/2 an inch. We still need more--but we'll take it....

My oldest son lived in Vegas for a year and a half --working in the restaurant business there... He couldn't get over the number of people who are addicted to gambling--and lose hundreds and thousands of dollars doing that crap... Glad your son is home and didn't lose much money... I despise gambling... I won't even buy a lottery ticket...

You did great on your washing machine... Glad you did shop around. We don't have a Home Depot here--but we do have a Sears and a Lowe's... Oh Well!!!!

Have a good week.
Hugs,
Betsy
