I left yesterday right after lunch to drive down to Winston to stay over night with Frances and Al. I had an 8:15 doctor’s appointment this morning. Rather than have to get up very early and drive down this morning it was more convenient to stay over with them.

I ran an errand on the way in to town yesterday then went on to their house. I had a couple of thingsĀ  to do after my appointment in Winston before heading back up the mountain.

Other than organizing and putting away a few things from the quick over night not much else is going on.

I am reading One Fatal Flaw by Anne Perry.

Sunshine! For the first time in three or four days. Temperatures are in the upper 60’s with a breeze.

I did the usual house cleaning chores this morning. Other than washing a load of towels not much else going on this afternoon.

Cloudy, cool, and foggy this morning but not raining. I went out about 9:30 to get some much needed outdoor chores done.

Yes, with almost four inches of rain over the past week, it was muddy but made pulling weeds much easier. I cut back the other Rose of Sharon and the one aster. Dumped the remaining two porch pots and washed those out.

After about an hour and half and several wheel barrel loads of stuff later I quit for the day. By the time I had stowed everything away and came in to get cleaned up it was sprinkling again.

It’s supposed to clear up later today but I wanted to get the outdoor stuff done so I could do the laundry this afternoon.

Another inch of rain since yesterday afternoon. Today is more of the same with off and on showers and a chance of thunderstorms.

I needed to look for something at Wal-Mart so decided to drive over to Galax, VA. Picked up a few food and household items I have not been able to find at Food Lion.

The leaves are starting to turn fall colors. Despite the gloomy wet weather it was still a pretty drive.

Rain and more rain. We are under flood watch until 8 tonight. We had another inch of rain over night. This morning the rain started again around 9, heavy at times with more of the same through tonight. Temps are in the low 60’s.

So, I’v hung around the house, changed the linens, and tidied up a bit. I need to run an errand in town so may as well go pick up my books from the library.

Rain last night and most of the day today. Temperatures in the upper 60’s. I had a little over an inch and half here at the house.

I spent the day volunteering at the bookstore. Business was surprising steady most of the day with the weather so nasty which ended with a pretty good days money wise.

I am reading A Cruel Deception by Charles Todd.

Thunderstorm last night that started around 10 and lasted about an hour. Lots of rumbling with some lightening and about an inch and half of rain. Today the high is only in the mid 60’s with lots of clouds and more rain this afternoon and tonight.

Hanging around the house today doing odds and ends.

Cloudy and 66 degrees this morning when I left for the gym.

It was raining when I went through town but not at the gym. I stopped at the grocery store on the way home to pick up a few things and it was raining when I came out of the store.

We’ve had a little bit of rain here but the sun it out now. I need to pull weeds and grass from the natural areas but it’s too dry right now. Hopefully more of the rain will come in tonight per the weather folks.

I had connectivity issues with my lap top yesterday. Tim, my tech guy, just left after getting me up and running again.

Frances and Al left midmorning for home.

After they left I started on the weekly house cleaning. Sadly I really do not need to vacuum every week now that I there is no dog hair. But since I have to do the bathrooms may as well do it all.

Frances and Al came up yesterday evening.

While we sat around relaxing this morning I started my laundry. We then went into town to run a few errands. Not sure what is on tap for this afternoon.

Again, another pretty day with cool temperatures, lots of sunshine, and a breeze.
