Sunny, for now

We got a good soaking for over an hour yesterday, and more rain is on the way today.  The ribs never made it to the grill, due to the rain.  They got slowly nuked and were delish. 

We need the rain, so we are not complaining about that nor the cold front moving down.  This is the land of ever changing weather…and we call it GOOD.


I learned something new yesterday about dissolving stitches—they can take up to 3 months to dissolve!  Who knew?  I have a small stitch from my naval surgery that is sticking out, so I stopped by to have my doc’s nurse remove it.  That sucker was too short to grab enough to hold to and clip (MM tried and he couldn’t get it); neither could the doc.  Bugger.  I don’t foresee wearing any silk blouses in the near future, and if I do, I’ll slap a small bandage over the suture to keep from snagging my fancy blouse.  Our casual lifestyle comes in handy for these medical situations.  Live and learn, people.

MM goes back for his eye check up this afternoon, then we plan to do something radical—maybe see a movie.  Or maybe not.  It is nice not having a schedule.  Or having to be back to walk a dog (we love dogs!).  Our two babies will sleep the whole time we are gone (as they are now doing).  They love vacations…which occur for them 24/7…except when those pesky mowers and blowers are outside.

We do not stop playing because we grow old;
We grow old because we stop playing...

Make a little time to play today.  And share a smile with those you meet!

It's sunny here but it's cold and very windy. We were going to pump out today, but I don't see that happening in this wind. Just more difficult to do and not as safe as when there is just a breeze or no wind at all.

I can relate on the blouse thing. No wearing anything you could ruin for a bit. That stitch will go away and one day you'll just notice that it's gone.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

I recently had a wart on my arm, just above my elbow. It got kinda dried out as warts do and it kept grabbing the fuzzy inside of my sweatshirt until finally one day I just noticed that it finally fallen off. That's as close as I can come to relating to a fancy silk blouse. I'm just sayin'. bahahahahahaha!

Enjoy your day off. =)

big hugs xoxo

I bet it's a pesky little bugger, too. That would drive me nuts.

The sun has peeked out this morning. Hoping it stays for a while, but then our weather changes every 15 minutes it seems.

Have a fun day!

For sure, don't stop playing! Hope that pesky stitch dissolves very soon. Enjoy whatever you decide to do this afternoon. Hugs!
