I made it past the high school before traffic jam time and expected to have to wait for the 8:00 opening of the laundry but there were several cars already there and the sign said open at 7:30.
I still got the biggest machines that I needed and all went well. I washed and dried everything except the rubber backed rugs which I will bring home and hang on the clothesline.
I got home about 9:30 and the animals were very glad to see me as the sun was heating up nicely and they all wanted out in it to eat breakfast. The sunshine was a welcome sight after the overnight rain that left 4/10ths inch in the gauge.
I had my breakfast and then hung all the rugs out on the line. I had my two clotheslines really loaded down and hoping they wouldn't snap under the weight of the wet rugs.
I got all the dried things put away and then took a nice walk in the warm, getting hot now, sunshine.
I decided to have an early lunch then start housecleaning duties.
Switching back to doing all the housecleaning in one day seems to be working better for me now. Tonight I have a very sore achy back but I think it is from lifting all the heavy laundry this morning.
A heating pad overnight should take care of the pain.
I mopped myself out the back door this evening just as the clouds grew very dark and the thunder started. I got all the rugs off the clotheslines and most of them were dry. I hung the few that weren't up downstairs and put away the dry ones while the floors upstairs dried.
I sat out in the sunroom expecting to watch it rain but the storm passed to the south and east of us and we only got a sprinkle. It is a muggy afternoon and the high temperature today climbed back to 80 degrees.
We turned the air conditioner off last weekend and are trying to keep it off . One more night and we may be closing the windows at night as the temps are predicted to nose dive into the lower 50's at night and low 70's in the daytime.
After chores and supper I am blogging early and headed to soak in a hot bath before firing up the ole heating pad !!
In September of 1984 our family went to Myrtle Beach as we did back then every year. We loved the beach this time of year, there were no crowds and we got to watch the fishermen cast their nets off the beach and drag in tons of mullet onto the beach.
This is one of many swamped boats we saw up the coast.
Ahhh the memories !!!
Grateful to God for the wonderful life I have had.
Good Night and God Bless.
