Woke to a cool rainy day this morning,what a change!!! A welcome one for sure.
After chores Hubbie and I headed up to church to work in the cool this morning.
We finished by lunch time and it was still drizzling rain as we drove home.This has been pretty much the story all day,and the temperature has been in the low 70's. More like fall feeling weather today.
I iced cakes all afternoon as well as baked the pound cakes and wine cakes I didn't get to last night.
#1 son and g-son came by for a while. The rain finally let up so Hubbie could get some weed eating in this evening.
The bank called to let daughter know that USDA state reps gave the wavier on the distance between the well and septic since it is well within state guide lines. So now we are jumping through hoops again. We called to have the electric turned back on so we can treat and retest the water as there is chloroform in the water because it has been sitting unused for so long. Also we will have to fix the garage door so it will open and close before they will approve the loan,more wasted money if they decide at the last minute not to give her the loan. But she has no choice at this point but to go along with their demands. In a usual situation these repairs would be the responsibility of the seller but since this is a foreclosure it's different.
I went to Lowes with Hubbie and while he looked at what it would take to fix the garage door I scanned new washer and driers as I am giving my old ones to daughter.
Back home I iced more cakes and did the evening chores while Hubbie did more weed eating. I picked cucumbers again and got almost 1/2 bushel. I need to check what kind of seed I got this year because this has been the best producing cukes we've had in a long time. I have enough to slice some for a benevolence dinner tomorrow evening and for some more of that yummy cucumber salad for Sunday lunch.
It feels so good outside tonight I wish I had time to sit out here and watch darkness come, but there are more cakes waiting for icing inside so maybe God will give me a rain check on the cool evenings.
Thanking God for today's blessings and for the forgiveness of all our sins.
Good Night and God Bless.

I thank Him for that too. Your days are always so full and busy! (I bought just today a Speed Queen washer and dryer. They have been around forever and are made in the USA. They have the very best warranty on them too...3 years parts and labor, 5 years on the cabinet and motor and 10 years on the transmission and lifetime on the stainless steel tub and outer draintubs. I hear they are great and I didn't like all the bells and whistles and everything that can go wrong with so many of the others, Good luck!) :D
