This morning was another warm,sunny, beautiful morning, not quite as warm as yesterday but still ,
67 degrees before 10 am is pretty nice.
After chores I refilled all the bird feeders. These Gold Finches are starting to get their bright colors.
I got one load of laundry done before I left to stop by Aldi on my way to pick up g-son. After I got him we stopped at Walgreens to pick up prints of February and March photos to add to my albums.
Then went to Ingles for some more M&M cookies for his lunch dessert.
After lunch I hung out the bed sheets and comforter on the line to dry in this nice sunshine.
While g-son played and watched TV I did 3 more loads of laundry and cleaned house. As I dusted the living room where he was I heard the TV put out a severe thunder storm warming for our area. I Looked outside and saw the sun still shining but when I stepped out on the porch I could see the dark clouds quickly covering the sky.
I gathered my already dry things from the clothesline and sat my ferns out from under the eaves of the roof to get a drink from Mother Nature.
The thunder got louder and the skies grew eriely dark before the rain even got here. As the rain started I hoped it didn't bring hail.
Hubbie made it home in the middle of the storm and we watched with g-son as the worst of it skirted us to the south. We could see the rain sheets across the hills as we watched the lightening streak to the ground.
#1 son soon came after g-son as he got rained out of the orchard he was mowing in.
The rain slacked off at chore time and when I checked the rain gauge it had only 2/10ths inch in it but just as I finished shutting up the chickens the rain started again.
After a salad and exercises I relaxed for the evening.
As I looked at weather maps tonight I found this map predicting that April was going to follow March's trend of warmer than normal temperatures.
Then this 7-day local forecast caught my attention.
What will we call these cooler days ?? Dogwood Winter ?? , Easter Cool Spell ??
That 37 is too close for comfort , I'm glad I don't have a lot of plants out yet !
Thanking God for a blessed day full of His creations and careful plans.
Good Night and God Bless.
