More raking for me today. I have a few daffodils by the South corner of my house that should be full bloomed by tomorrow. They always bloom weeks before any other.

Junie, that's sort of what happened here. Cool, rainy, then 80° all of a sudden. No in between.

We had some rain and some thunder.

The girls stayed with us for a bit today. It was fun.

Well yes, if it were not for the Grands we would spend much less time at various Drs. offices. You are so correct.

It is blowing so hard out, you'd think it was a Winter storm. I am surprised we still have power.

Hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day. I went to church with Shelley and then to her house for lunch. Went to the gym this morning to work off the lunch smile

Flying to Ginger's tomorrow for the end of year activities for Colt.

It is melting as it falls but it is still discouraging to see.

Off to pay the monthly bills and get a few groceries.

I hope your DH's illness is short lived....it might be harder on you than him. lol

I dread the 'getting to the cashier' part of shopping. I used to hate the long lines, now I hate the receipt.

Yep for sure on the amount we spend. Yesterday, I needed some meat, and I had to replace some items I had to throw out when we lost power. I spent far too much money, that is for sure. (DH just found out what I spent at the grocery rolz)

Good morning.

Well, I was lucky there. The only meat I had to throw out was some bacon. In the freezer in the house, items were still crunchy and so I knew my chest freezer was good as well. But I pretty much had to get rid of creamy condiments, dressings, cheeses, and cooked foods that were in my fridge. But hey, at least I got my fridge emptied and cleaned out. As my MIL used to say, I got another job done.

Oh, yes...mayo and dressings are definitely on the throw out list.

I weeded around and dug a new circle around my lilac trees, then mulched around them. I ended up cutting off new little branches last year with the weed wacker. eek
