Woke to a cloudy morning and about 4/10ths inch of rain in the gauge from yesterdays and last night's rain showers. I layed in bed for a long time last night listening to the distant thunder and wondered if it was coming our way. I guess it never did or if it did I slept through it.
G-son came at 7am to get back to our regular routine this week. Hubbie is off again today so after chores and breakfast we went shopping in Asheville. We made stops in Big Lots (at g-son's urging), Target, Micheal's , Pet Smart, Walmart and then picked up all our animal feed at Southern States as we came back into our county.
We had lunch at Subway and then brought g-son's pizza home for him to snack on the remainder of the evening. He says his throat still feels bad when he swallows so he isn't eating much today but hasn't had any fever that I could tell all day. Hopefully this new medicine will once and for all get rid of the strep throat.
He spent most of the afternoon playing with this little race car set that he picked out of the "clearance" toys in Walmart. Dolly likes it also !!!

 This was well worth the price we paid for it and he got a lot of enjoyment out of it and even little Evy who came this evening loved watching the 2 little cars race around the track.
I got these 2 aprons that had been laying on my sewing machine for several weeks made today. The white one is made from  one of the tiers of a set of curtains I bought for my kitchen window and only used the valence on the window. I will see if this one sells before I make the one from the other tier. The curtain material isn't very thick and no one really wants to use a white apron !!
There was a couple other "honey dos" that I didn't get done today but I did get all the oregano that I had drying downstairs put in plastic bags and got fresh basil cut to refill all my drying boxes along with some sage and rosemary.
It rained just a little in short spurts thoughout the afternoon and with temperatures in the upper 80's and 100% humidity outside was a miserable place.
#1 son came after g-son and Aaron came after little Evy about the same time so we all had a very nice visit.
Thankful for the blessings of today and praying for all the lost souls tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.

My hubby had a similar race car set when he was growing up; so did my son. I love the white apron. My mother used to always wear a "dressy' white apron on Sundays. She said it was the "proper" thing to do. Blessings

I dont know how you do all you do in a days time. You are amazing! Just doing one of the things you do, gardening, sewing, baking, would do me in! Have a great Tuesday.
