Well I didn't get my wish for a quiet night of slumber after all as about 2:30 the thunder and lightening woke me up and kept me awake for a while before the storm moved quickly through our area only leaving 3/10ths inch of rain in the gauge this morning.
As I did chores slipping and sliding around in the mud this morning it was still totally cloudy and looked like more rain any minute.
Church was good today continuing the "life saver" series in Mathew 5 with the last verses about loving your enemies.
Lunch was BBQ , corn on the cob, green beans,boiled potatoes and slaw with strawberry shortcake for dessert.
#1 son's family and Aa's family were our guest. The kids had fun reconnecting.
After everyone left I planted all the flowers I bought yesterday. Here is the plants in their new homes. This is one I have never heard of but decided the price of  $2 was right to try it.
I fed my love of Coleus for the $1 price tags on these.
More $2 deals on this Licorice plants and Pineapple Mint.
And this new really pretty Golden Mint.
More $1 deals were a Geranium in each of these 4 colors.
These were my most expensive purchases at $3 each. The jumbo leaf and frilly leaf Coleus along with this Lantana that reminded me of the barrel planter my mother always planted some of these plants in each year when I was growing up.
As you can tell I didn't spend too much money at the festival yesterday but I think I got some pretty plants.
After I got everything planted hubbie and I walked down to #1 son's house to see his new mulch bed around his front porch. G-son was just having fun doing what boys so !!
We came home after playing with the kids a few minutes and did chores and then relaxed for the evening.
Thankful for the blessings of this day and for all the love my Heavenly Father showers down on me each day.
God Bless and Good Night
