I get up this morning and race the weather, taking ibuprofen,for the bum knee (thank you arthritis), putting on my walking garb, and slathering my skin with sun screen only to be confronted with lightening and thunder in the front yard the minute my feet hit the pavers. Now I am sticking to the furniture with all the lights on as it is so dark outside and watching the much needed rain slam down. The grass here is crunchy, it is so moisture depleted. Bella is a bit scared and up on the desk with me, licking the sun screen off my arms.
The birthday girl and her BFF's (except for Robbie!) lunching at a country club and
after taking a selfie, playing mahjong for several hours. Then I came home to these
beautiful flowers from the kids and later on Bella, G and I went out to have a sidewalk cafe
dinner with even Bella getting her own menu. We did not let her order because she ate before leaving home but the thought was nice.
