Rainy Day

Our rainy day was a good day to rest up and relax.  We watched a new show Whodunnit on ABC online. We enjoyed two installments and plan to watch more..we do not get ABC because we are supposed to get it with an antennae..go figure. (Direct TV versus local TV rules)

A chipmunk invaded the area behind the bottle gas cylinder of the grill.  Chance trapped him there and kept watch and barked intermittently for several hours..his very own special kind of rainy day entertainment.

Late in the afternoon we traveled a bit North to meet our soon to be seventeen year old grand at Dairy Queen and then we came home, I cooked supper we ate and I had a two hour nap..I just could not keep my eyes open after supper.

The clouds hung heavy in the air and it rained all day long.

57 Chevy

We saw another 57 Chevy a different color than last week, this one was ivory( Adobe Beige) and a copper color (Sierra Gold).  Far Guy and I had a big discussion about paint colors of old cars. We decided that this old guy..he was about 70 must have had one this color when it was brand new..either that or he always wanted one and he didn’t care what color.

Clouds hanging in the Smoky Hills

The Smoky Hills have lived up to their name all summer long, usually blanketed with humidity.  Today it looked like steam was rising from the river.

There were raindrops on my roses.

Raindrops on roses

And mosquitoes on my legs and trying to fly in my ears and up my nose:)

  4. We called that car the "Heavy Chevy" when I was young. I loved it and I think I even made out in the back seat of one once. Love your pretty roses and glad you finally got to relax a little. I feel asleep in the chair last night, too. I just went to bed and slept right through the night. :-)

  8. Rain is a most beautiful word and event in moderation. Maybe soon we will have some.

    Sounds like a great day.

  9. There's something about a '57 Chev, at least for those of us who remember them. And I LOVE DJan's comment! It really is quite a year for mosquitoes, and now your rainy day will just result in a new generation of them. Minnesota state bird, indeed.

  11. Well, we haven't gotten as much rain as you but then we don't have as many mosquitoes either. We had a little rain last night and then some this morning but it stayed in the low 80's but of course the "dew point" is high. I love you summer banner. I have to do one still before summer is over. Been really busy this summer...pushing myself to do things I'd rather not! I always feel like I'm closer to home when I visit you!

  12. It's sprinkling here right now and the humidity is around 92%...sucks for people...humidity. I suppose it's pain for animals also, but the plants like it!

  14. Your rose looks great with water on it. It means you might get some more blooms. I have been under the weather a lot lately and sleep seems to be happen anytime I sit still. I really like the old 57's.
