July 27th - Tuesday PM - Beautiful Day - 90 degrees low humidity
I will try and update everyone since the last post. Saturday was a very hot day and Lou and I were up early and I took advantage of the cooler morning and scrubbed both decks and the sidewalks, the raccoons had left their footie prints all over and it was time for them to go. We still continue with the nightly routine of scurrying them away.
We finally got relief from the humidity on Saturday and had thundershowers late afternoon. Lou snapped the picture of the rainbow after the rain had stopped. We actually had a double rainbow later.
Sunday we went to church and it poured while we were in church, so we scooted to Lou's house after church and found the basement had water in it, so got that all cleaned out and went out for breakfast and we actually rested most of Sunday afternoon.
Monday dawned with beautiful cloudless skies and low humidity, so we thought it was a good time to resume our daily walks. We went into Wellsboro and walked in the cemetery and then ran errands and went to Lou's house to do lawn work. Actually, we have spent two days there and we could spend every day for the rest of the summer doing things that need to be done to help with the appearance of the flowers and such. We had made big plans on things we wanted to do; however, there are circumstances that prohibit us from spending time there. We did cut down a couple trees and I spent all of my time running the weed eater. When we arrived at Lou's house we didn't start out with very good luck. There are three lawn mowers there and not one of them would start. Thankfully, I took my electric weed eater and that would work. Finally, with the help of the battery charger from the motor home, we got the John Deere started and cut part of the grass. We finally quit at 7:00 and came home for dinner and went back today and finished. I still don't have all of the weed eating done. I did snap several pictures to give you an idea of the beautiful surrounding at Lou's. Edna had beautiful flowers at one time, but with neglect, they like all things don't show as they did at one time. There are several beds that I do try to keep up as I know she would have appreciated it and I know that Lou does.
We had a dinner from our garden, fresh green beans, cucumbers, swiss-chard, all of that went with fresh hamburger that my brother gave us. It was delightful.
Tomorrow we will try and walk in the morning and run into town for some errands and work here at home, with square dancing tomorrow night.
We did have some news from our Marine grandson. He is going to be stationed near Philadelphia for a year; therefore, we will get to see he and his family frequently. This makes all of the family members happy.
