The Friday that is...........
Sunshine and clouds are in view before the next shower. I don't think our soil has dried out all summer. We have had, quoting the morning weather guy, globs of clouds that keep passing through. Those globs have serious stuff in them and we get thunder and lightening with them each time
My neighbors will now see me in the street looking up with the camera. I didn't notice the open window view of the sky in this location until I walked the dog there yesterday afternoon.. Barney was refusing to go outside in the backyard so I had to walk him to get him some exercise. There was this gosh awful humidity and heat and the only way to get him was to treat him to a walk. It was no treat for me.
For reference of the kind of dog it is I will share a photo. He is a tan colored border collie. The shining coat is from me brushing him thoroughly every day to help stop his summer skin condition. He gets bad allergies in the summer sometimes, not every summer. When he does I brush and rinse him down with the garden hose in the evenings to wash off stuff that could cause the allergy. He had a siege of irritation about three weeks ago and it took us that long to get it under control. He can now rest and nap and not be bothered by anything.
I am not making plans today. The weather and other things keep me from meeting any set of plans. I didn't meet the goal to finish the frame collage of old things. I am not happy about that. I started it days ago.
When the sink strainer went bad a couple of days ago so did our overhead light above the sink. My wife and I spent a lot of time at Menards to find the just right replacement of two hanging lights.
We get them home and the outside photos and descriptions of natural textured glass globes with brass parts was wrong. It ended up being the right glass globe but shiny black parts and cords. They are ugly. I wonder how many people just keep them and use them. We are not keeping them. That will be returned and we will go to a different store. At first we had found one light fixture that we really like but they only had one of them, not two. The ones we picked out were a compromise as the wires suspending the globes would have to have the wires shortened by me 12 inches or more. I could have done that but I can not hang black shiny stuff in the kitchen where the main ceiling light is brass. Enough of me complaining for today now and I will quit. I am waiting and watching the grass dry so I can go outside and mow. When it visually quits shining, I will venture outside.
Hey, it is Friday, I hope you have a good day. Thanks for stopping by today.
I just proofed my blogs and I only had four negatives today. I will work on that and cheer up a little. Maybe I should start hiding my emotions when I blog........not.
