Awakened by pounding rain at about 5:30 this morning I knew this was the beginning of the wash out day that was forecast.
G-daughter arrived at 7am and went back to sleep for almost 3 hours.
Hubbie and I did morning chores. As I passed the rain gauge there was already 2 inches in there since the rain began after midnight.
#2 son who is off again today came by to borrow a wrench to change the oil in his jeep. Lucky him, as he has a large carport to work in today.
Hubbie and I watched the creek rise all day as the rain continued to come down heavy at times.

What better way to spend a rainy cold day than to snuggle with Pawpaw and look out the window !!

My Christmas cactus that the kids gave me for an anniversary present several years ago is in full bloom now and so pretty.
While hubbie and g-daughter watched the rain (and the TV) I did 3 loads of laundry and put all of last weeks clean laundry away.
After we all had lunch she went to sleep for the afternoon and hubbie went outside while the rain is slacked off and worked on his wood pile. I set up my laptop and finished my blog book for the months of April thru June of this year.  Now I just need to preview it and it will be ready to order.
G-daughter was still asleep when d-in-love came to pick her up.
Today has been a cool day with highs only reaching 51 degrees with the rain. Our rainfall totals tied the record for our area today with 2.3 inches in the gauge this evening at choretime.
Another weather note , the 11th tropical storm in the Atlantic ocean was named this morning . She is Kate and she has brought lots of rain and wind to the Bahamas today before this same front that is bringing us rain today pushes her out to sea away from any land.
Daughter called tonight and she said she has 14 girls on her JV team this year. She sent 3 of her sophomores to varsity to make them a total of 11 girls. This is more girls than they have had come out in 2 years.
#1 son called hubbie tonight in search of a tool to repair a broken shower head at the double wide he is renting to my nephew Mark. He had to go to Lowes when hubbie didn't have what he needed.
At least the work is inside and not outside tonight.
Hubbie and I spent a restful evening.
Thankful for the blessings of this day and very thankful for the ability that God gives me each day to do the things I want to and need to get done.
God Bless and Good Night.

I do love to see the pictures of g-daughter with her PawPaw. They are so heartwarming. We had some beautiful sunny days the last 2 days with another one predicted for today. Glad you didn't have any flooding. May God continue to bless you and your family.
