The atmosphere was heavy all day and so was my head. I did a bit of knitting and finished a book and got a rump roast in the oven for dinner. There was a brief period of sketchy sunlight during which I slogged around the yard looking at the gardens and pulling a few weeds. More clouds rolled in, the kids showed up for dinner and just after they left we got another thunderstorm, thankfully no wind, and no hail.
And now it's a bit after 9 and I'm still awake having finally come to full consciousness. Husband is off playing pool and it's very quiet here, nice, just the sound of the spring peepers. Got a little more done on the peace pole, it's coming along nicely. If it rains as is predicted again tomorrow, I may do more lettering.
Tomorrow is Anah's 12th birthday and I have her presents to wrap. I put that off till the last minute as I am a pretty lousy present wrapper and I don't enjoy it much. She has a field trip to St. Louis tomorrow as well which is an extra present as they are going to The City Museum, not a museum really..hard to describe..a link can do that so much better than I though I have been there.http://www.citymuseum.org/.
I am thinking good weather thoughts for their trip as some of the "museum" is outside and rain would spoil that. Of course, most of all, I just want them all to be safe and have a marvelous time.
I think I'll see if Netflix has anything that interests me that I haven't already seen, might be a good night for a British mystery.
I appreciate thunderstorms and rain.
I am grateful for my good healthy and that of my family.
I am grateful for tiny sprouting veggies.
