Was actually a bit of a fizzle.
All day Sunday and Monday we were getting warnings of major rain – 3-6 inches and wind – upwards of 50 mph. Yesterday we had light rain with one or two heavy rain bands blow through. Then we had some wind. Not sure just how much but it didn’t do more than blow over all the plumerias and whip my baby trees back and forth.

No complaints. I’ve seen tropical storms come ashore and just sit and rain – for days.
And, YAY!!, I finished my upcoming presentation on herbs. Just have to clean up my speaking notes and decide about a handout.
I mentioned another new crochet project I plan to start – making a sweater.
I went off to Hobby Lobby (closest place to buy yarn) and DAMN! they now only carry two brands, neither of which was what I wanted. So, I decided on the Yarn Bee brand. Found a color they had enough skeins of and bought them. Then, coming home, my mind says – Hmmmmm, you didn’t check the number of yards in the pattern skein vs what you bought hmmmm. Of course, didn’t buy nearly enough as the YB skeins are half the size of the Heartland. Argh! And, no they didn’t have any more in that color. And yes I could order more but it would cost almost half again as much. Argh! If I have to order it, might as well get what I wanted so I placed an order with Lion Brand. And two days later got an email from them saying – “Golly gee whiz we are so busy it will be unknown time before we can send out your yarn, we’ve already charged you for oopsie”.
Our weather cooled down for a few days. By that I mean it was 70° at 6am and only a high of 93° for the day. Since I’m a morning person, I put on walking togs and did a two mile walk last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Annnnnd by Friday night, my shins hurt!
I’m pretty sure shins are not supposed to hurt! I was hobbling around my house like a little old lady. Okay – all got better by Sunday and when I can get out and walk again, I may try building up to 2 miles. I did see some interesting things while walking though. Like
You never know what you’ll see around here!
