Do they have a 4th of July in Canada? haha. Old joke.
So it finally stopped raining. I am hoping this lasts for more than just a few days, but I doubt it will. It’s about 70 degrees outside and I would say that it’s perfect, perfect weather. You can’t get much better than the 70s and sunny.
A few nights ago, I was telling my mother about all the rain. I said that while it has been raining a lot, it really hasn’t been all too annoying. For some reason I have been able to work around it. Timing our walks around thunderstorms does get on my nerves though. Two days ago, we almost brought our rain coats with us, just in case. At the last second, I looked at the online radar and discovered the storm was South/West of us, so we were okay. We did hear the thunder though. It kind of just kept on rumbling. I have a slight fear of being evaporated by a bolt of lightening, but since the clouds were far away, I felt it was safe to walk.
I do remember a show on TV one time telling me that you can get hit by lightening like 20 miles away on a clear day. Hey, thanks guys. Just something else to worry about. Now we have that and a nuclear warhead coming from over the Pacific.
We went to a 4th of July party yesterday. It was a big step for me because trying to move my butt over to a get-together where I don’t know anyone is a chore. Congrats to Laura.
The party was thrown by a friend of Laura’s son. He and his soon to be wife bought a house with a pool about two months ago and decided to have people over. Since I didn’t know anyone (including Laura’s friend), I really didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of everyone who was there. They were very personable folks. We are actually going blueberry picking with Laura’s friend this afternoon.
I have to mow the lawn today. It is growing quite nicely from all the rain and now sunshine. I am back to fertilizing by my lonesome because I severed my relationship with the service that was coming out to do it. Let’s just say I feel that I could do a better job than them. We’ll leave it at that. I am a particular person when it comes to certain things and when I get the feeling that other people aren’t as particular as I am, I get particularly annoyed.
I had three tons of pellets delivered yesterday. I will take a pic and post that next.
Peace out. I gotta hop in the shower and get ready for some berry picking.
