G-son and I stayed in bed a little while this morning after he got here,I think this week has been tiring for both of us.
After chores and breakfast I did my exercise tape and then walked in the nice sunshine under blue skies today.
We had lunch and then I baked cakes, 40 layers and 2 pound cakes. I have a few orders tomorrow so maybe it will be a good day.
#1 son got off work at noon today to take g-son to the "meet the teacher" hour at his school. He has been excited all morning about getting to go back to school. I just hope he likes it as much as he did pre-school.
I finished baking at about 3:00 and found myself alone and with time to take a much needed "me" break. There are things that need to be done but they can wait.
I found myself wondering around the house picking up things and doing little jobs that had been put off in my "me" time but oh well at least I didn't have to hurry !!
#1 son and g-son came back and gave me a good report on the meet the teacher experience.
G-son had a hard time leaving his new friends already.
Just as I started evening chores so did the rain for today.
It poured again ,over an 1 inch in about 30 minutes!!  This must be the monsoon season that I didn't know we had !

Then we had a steamy sunset as the clouds moved south of us.
The gulleys in our drives just keep getting deeper but anything we put in them just washes right out.

After the rain I finished chores and iced all my cakes. I had a pretty late night,getting finished about 11:30 so this is being written Saturday and back dated.
Grateful for the blessings of the day.

Beautiful rain. The washes can be fixed later.

I already know you had a good market day. I'm reading backwards.
