Another storm cell hit at 1800 tonight and sheets of rain fell for about 15 minutes and it was over. The ditches and streets were running over full. After supper we looked about and everything was drained off. That is good.
As the OFM was walking today he noticed his speed was a slight bit slower than recently. He picked up the pace a bit and wham his left foot and hip started to complain. So the Teams slowed a bit and it was very comfortable for speed. Then we also had 77F temperature with a nice 15 mph breeze. The final outcome was a mile longer walk at a slightly lower speed and no hurting joints when we finished. The OFM was breathing deeply and slightly sweaty. It sounds to the Teams got it just about right today. We even got to take a couple of pictures along the way. It was a good start to the day.
Since the black berries are all finished for this year, and they were excellent, the OFM has been keeping an eye on the wild grapes. They seem to be developing well and on schedule. Certainly this rain of the last week will help them mature well. We are ready for them when they get ready.
A good bit of the day was spent enjoying scribbling with colored pencils on good paper. A painting we had been piddling with for almost a month was the object of the OFM’s attention. After a few hours the OFM decided the painting was finished. We are not sure if it was finished as in completed or finished as gave up on it. No matter which it is, the fun was in the trying and learning. Here it is in all its misery.
Then for supper we hit up the local Lawler’s BBQ place for a great BBQ Pork sandwich with half and half sweet tea..As in half sweet tea and half unsweetened tea. The OFM really likes their BBQ Pork since it is not greasy. All the folks at the BBQ place greet the OFM by name when we walk in!
After reading over the posting we decided it has been a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun.
