STORMY AFTERNOON

Up earlier than usual on a Sunday morning to give medicine to Bernie before he gets his ration of special food. He takes his medicine without to much of a fuss, but he  is still a little weak.
After chores and breakfast I got ready for church. I am a greeter again this morning so I left earlier.
Church was good today. I was kind of surprised we didn't do our July 4th appreciation of all our servicemen but the preacher said we were going to do that next week, although it will be after the 4th it will be closer.
After church we had a smaller than usual lunch bunch as tomorrow is Aaron's birthday so his dad took them all out to lunch to celebrate and #2 son is golfing as usual.
We had roast beef, smashed baked potatoes, green beans and corn with sweet tea to drink,yum.
Everyone scattered after lunch in different directions, g-son stayed with me while his mom went shopping and his dad went fishing. He acts tired from last weeks activities at camp.
Just after he was picked up the weather turned bad for our area. This patch of dark orange sat over us for about 20 minutes and dropped almost 2 inches of rain.
This is the first downpour we have had since the new bridge and road construction began and there are major problems with water drainage down there.
This is a picture d-in-love sent me of #1 son trying to clear the stopped up culvert that runs under our driveways. If you enlarge  the pic you can see him among the orange and white barrels in the right side of the pic.
Hopefully they will get in here and get this finished so they can redirect the water.
Hubbie and I had our own drainage problems as our gutters couldn't carry all the water and sent us out in the downpour to divert some of the water away from the foundation of our house.
At least it was over quickly !
After chores hubbie and I went to Walmart for some groceries for the week and then relaxed for the evening.
It's hard for me to believe that tomorrow is the last day of June and that 2014 is now officially 1/2 over !!  This month has been so busy it has really zoomed by.
Grateful for no damage during today's storm and thankful for the blessings of a wonderful Sunday.
Good Night and God Bless.

Glad you managed to weather the storm okay. we had one last night and had high winds yesterday. More of the same for today except they are predicting it will be worse. A couple of tornadoes touched down yesterday west of me, praying for everyone there. Glad Bernie is feeling a little better. God keep you safe. Blessings

Hi There, We are home from a trip to the gorgeous West VA mountains –where we celebrated our anniversary… I’ll be blogging about this time for awhile –since it was so special.

Sorry to hear about cute little Bernie. Hope he is okay now....Scary!

We didn't have much rain until a couple of days ago. We finally got about 1.6 inches the past couple of days. We needed it SO much.. Amazing how the weather has been so different in places all around us!!!

Hugs,

Betsy
