After chores and breakfast this morning Hubbie and I made a trip to Lowes to get another small storage shed.
This size Rubbermaid Shed is about 6 feet tall, almost 5 feet wide and 4 feet deep will be perfect for all g-son's wagons and jeep along with other items.
We didn't get it put together today as had hoped but we got a base made for it to sturdy up the floor and get it off the ground a little.
We worked on getting the 4 post out of the ground from the old carport while #1 son had his skid steer around.
It is a very nice sunny day but very windy. We are supposed to get harder winds tonight with thunder storms. If the wind gets much harder we'll be in trouble because it is already blowing trees down in some places.
Took a short break this afternoon and noticed these Gold Finches at the feeder,they look splotchy now but soon will look almost unreal in all their bright yellow feathers.This color change amazes me as they change from a dull no color winter coat to a breath taking bright summer coat very quickly.

G-son had another ball game this evening at 5:30.
He did well today except for one short crying episode that caused him to miss 1 of his at-bats.
The next time at bat though he was determined to hit that ball...... He told me he was going to hit the ball all the way out in the grass........
Just look at that determined face !!!!

Success, he hit a long drive out of the in-field into the grass and laughed all the way around the bases.

Get that ball !!!!!

Little boys and dirt, they just go together !!!

Hubbie and I discovered that the little girl on the team is some of our neighbors grand daughters so we had a nice visit during the game.
As the game wound down the storm clouds boiled up, covering the sun and darkening the fields.We hurried home after the game finished to try and get the chores done before the rain got here.
A few sprinkles were all that fell before dark but the weather wizards say we are in for a rough night of storms and wind.

A late supper and a restful evening tonight.

It is almost 11:00 and no storms yet but the temperature is still an unbelievable 71 degrees.

Thanking God tonight for a blessed day and for the many blessings of the day.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, Your grandson is awesome... Love those pictures. He is determined to hit that ball... ha

We had high winds and lots and lots of rain today/tonight... The TV man said we could get up to 4 inches of rain... Luckily though, we didn't get anything severe like many other places in our area and in TN....
