Outside my window...
We are getting rain today! Lots and lots of rain. My backyard looked like a lake for a short time this morning. It has now all soaked into the ground. We really needed the rain. It is currently 63* From looking at the weather forecast we should be rainy through tomorrow.
I'm pondering how things are going for the high school students. They have no power there. Harley notified me at 10:00 this morning. I have the lights on in the house because it is so dark outside. I wonder how they are fairing over there. This age of kids doesn't know too much about going without power. They are probably burning through cell phone batteries like crazy!
I finished watching all the previous seasons of Scandal on Netflix. I haven't watched this show from the beginning. It wasn't one that Richard wanted to watch. And we all know about men and their control over the remotes. Don't we? So I am all caught up and ready to watch the final season when it starts up in early October. I am also binging on Grey's Anatomy. There are (I think) 13 seasons. I didn't start watching this until the past couple of years either. It is interesting to go back and see where it all started. Do any of you watch these two shows?? And how about that finale of Big Brother, fellow Big Brother fans??? I was thrilled because I was NOT a 'Paul fan.'
I finished reading The Railwayman's Wife and will review it soon. I am still listening to Hillary's book, What Happened, and I have started reading Matterhorn, by Karl Marlantes. It is a (big) novel about the Viet Nam war.
This week, along with my friends from Do Not Depart, we have started memorizing and learning about Deuteronomy 30:11-20. As I have told you before I love to memorize. And doing it with friends makes it much more fun.
We don't have many plans for this week. Harley is busy with her pre-clinical (getting ready to start clinical in the nursing home for the CNA class) and she starts driving with the driving instructor tomorrow night and does that for the next week plus one day next week. Thankfully, I am not driving her to any of these events!
Today I am enjoying my second cup of breakfast blend coffee with a splash of French Vanilla Cream. Doesn't get better than that. And I am loving my Keurig!
What's in the kitchen...
Wednesday...Harley eats at church
Thursday...Chicken and dressing casserole
Friday...Green Bean soup

A final thought...
Harley and I drove to Wichita yesterday evening to eat out with Justin and Paige. Justin has been very busy with being security at kids' football games (sad they have to have security in this day and age but parents are crazy) and Paige works on the weekends. So we have to struggle to find a day we can all get together. We ate at Texas Roadhouse and it was really good. I just finished the leftovers for my lunch today!
