Middle of the Week.......
The rain is coming today. It actually is not coming from the southeastern direction. It is entering the state from Nebraska, west of us and will be here by 10:00.
I was watching the "America Pickers" a couple of days ago and I am amazed at how much people can collect. I laughed about myself as I brought this box to the house a few days ago. I gave it a bath and it is cleaner than it has never been before since I acquired it. I have a series of shots of this and lots of words to say about this box but I will spare everyone today. It is an egg crate. The eggs were stacked in layers with cardboard like spacers. I could see there being 6 layers of eggs packed in there. The part of history that I like about it is the marks of the farmers who used this. There are patches over holes. There are pieces of lathe nailed to reinforce it from falling apart. I also have a family name written with a crayon on the box. Enough for now of sharing my box.
I trimmed back all of the roses in the front of the house and they have been getting some extra water once in a while. They are now blooming again. I took this photo from a distance as I didn't have shores on to get close. The camera said it was going to focus on the new bud and as you can see it did its job.
It did not cool down much last night but 76 F. is better than nothing for our weather right now. It still is promised that we will be 88 F. by the end of the day, after the rains. Thank you for stopping by today.
