Thunderstorms roared through town all night, sonic booms jerking you awake from a fitful sleep. Listening for the hail that would spell doom for your newly planted flowers. Listening for the sound like a train that would signal the tornado they kept warning us to watch full. With all that I had little sleep. They are predicting more severe storms today. Today, the day I was suppose to be sitting outside happily bidding on some beautiful glass and china. Sigh.
Spent yesterday, no surprise here, at my MIL. I did her laundry and then decided the blankets needed washing also. Only to find out her dryer had broke. No heat. So we dragged it home here to dry. I cleaned out her linen drawer downstairs and put some of her clothes down in it. That way she wouldn't have to climb the stairs on the days she feels bad. Thankfully she has been feeling good for a the last few days. Too bad the weather is so wet as she would love to be sitting outside.
She gave me some beautiful dollies and dresser scarfs. I was going through her linen while moving it. Brother, she has at least 40 tableclothes. When would she ever need so many? Many looked exactly the same but are different sizes depending on how many leaves she had in the table. My MIL loved to entertain and I remember many a party with 20 to 40 people there. Sad that is all gone. Dwindled over the years as people died and moved. Now just us at holiday's. All the beautiful china and dishes stored away.
Well darn, I didn't mean this to be a depressing post. Sorry. Today we will probably go back to her house as she has more company from Missouri. Hope they got past the storms OK last night as they arrived late. I will leave you with another of my new flowers I planted. I planted lots of petunia's asthe deer don't seem to like them plus another I plant ever year which always does well, blooms all season.
