Woke by the ringing phone at 6:30 this morning as daughter brought her blackberries and baked goods by on her way to take the volleyball team to King's Mountain,NC for a tournament.
Hubbie is going to sell for her today.
She is now officially the JV volley ball coach and assistant varsity coach as the girl who was helping with this took another job in another county last week. She had rather just coach basketball but most of the same girls play volleyball so she has always helped out some. Now it will be full time coaching for her from July until March,whew !!
Hubbie and I got to market a bit early and one of the neighbor's helped get us both set up. The high humidity of the morning is making us all sweat early today. I knew we would have some really bad storms and I was right as shortly after hubbie ran down to Hot Dog World for our lunch the storm started. Terrible lightening and thunder with pouring rain.
It was a relaxing rainy afternoon for us and I thought it would be a good day of reflection to catch up my decade pics.
I didn't find any August 1963 pictures. I had just turned 9 years old on July 31 and started 4th grade in that August. I had a teacher named Mrs. Edna Pryor who was one of my cousins. I don't remember too much about school back then so it must have been okay !!
In August 1973 I didn't find any photos either. I had just turned 19 that July and had just taken a job at Ball Brothers inspecting glass jars. I worked swing shifts and worked through all weekends. I stayed in this job for 6 years before the shift work caught up with me and had to get a daytime job.
I still lived at home with my parents at that time.
Fast forward the next 10 years to August 1983 and there were plenty of pictures !!! At 29 years old I had been married almost 4 years and had 2 little boys, ages 22 months and 5 months of age.
We loved camping at the lake and hubbie's brother's family routinely went with us on our weekend trips. Niece Holly brought her best friend along on the trips.
The sun finally peeked out here around 4:30 this afternoon to steam things up for sure in the 83 degree temp.
After chores and having some fresh greasy beans and okra for supper hubbie and I went to Sam's Club. While we were in there the rain started again and poured with thunder and lightening very close over head.
We only live a couple miles from Sam's so we figured we were getting our soaker for the day.
We finished our shopping about the same time as the rain slacked so we didn't get too wet getting to the car and when we got home it had only rained about another 1/2 inch more.
I sat out in the sunroom with my 4-legged kids and listened to the raindrops on the metal roof while darkness took over.
A nice relaxing way to end another busy week.
Thanking God for being beside me today and giving me strength.
Good Night and God Bless.
