It's Winter...........No, It's Summer.

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Yesterday people had their furnaces on, today their air conditioners. LOL. Life in Southern Illinois. Our weather is described as changeable. We had a good rain this morning so we could not go to my MIL's to mow. The sun came out later though.

My son had to work today but we got to sleep in a while as he didn't have to go in until 11. I made breakfast while the 2 of us quickly made our lunches for later.

After lunch hubby and I drove to a small town near here and went to Wal-mart, Rural King, and Dairy Queen. We had a cherry sunday. I love them.

We then drove to another town to Lowes and bought some boards to repair the benches my hubby's boss gave us and some boards to make a clothes rack for the rummage sale plus 6 large bags of mulch and 3 huge bags of potting soil. We ran into our lawyer at Lowes. LOL. He is making a work bench. We stopped and saw our son at work and then ate at McDonalds. Yuck.

We came home and went for a walk. We saw lots of bunnies again. Normal sized bunnies. We saw Baby laying in her front yard.

We got Reek out a couple of times today. He thinks he needs to eat every time we do now.

I helped hubby work on the estate tonight.

    We saw a bunny at 4 in the afternoon, which is rare. Musti, the dog, was excited and I like it when he's chipper. We're having similar weather. Averted another few tornadoes. I swear, it's a matter of time.

    Ahhh. The Estate. Nuff said.

    We have similar weather here in Boston! A popular saying around here is, "If you don't like the weather... wait a minute" ha!

    There's a saying about the weather where I live- If you don't like the weather in Alberta -wait five minutes. yeah we got another dumping of snow last night -getting sort of tired of it. Yeah a Big Mac was the last "meal" I ate prior to getting sick (well I also had some other things but I think the McD was the culprit). I hope its a long time before I want one.

    Sounds like your weather is all over the place. Glad you all got to sleep in a bit. Looks like Reek wants to be wherever you all are.

    You had rain! We need rain so badly here. We are having spits of rain today. Ditto on the crazy weather.

    Yum, the sundae sounds delicious! We have to treat ourselves every now and then. Have a beautiful Sunday and don't work to hard mulching! emoticon Carol

    Our weather is crazy here, too. Seems I'm sick or sore every time the weather gets nicer, darn it!

    Now that is a small town when you run into your lawyer at LOWES!!

    I miss that small town feel. It is easy to get lost in the big city of Austin.

    sounds like a pretty good day! It was in the 30s earlier this week and today the high will be about 85!!! I decided to clean the back porch and get out the furniture, etc. It was really pleasant--warm and dry. We are getting pretty desperate for rain though. Things are already getting so dry. have a good Sunday!!

    The weather here 2 days ago was cold and yesterday was 70 degrees. I have talked to many different people from very different parts of the country and other countries too, and the weather has been just as confusing for them as well! We are all going crazy!
    I LOVE rummage sales! In the Midwest where we lived were way better than they are here on the East coast. We hardly ever find any good ones here, only real junk.
    I hope you do well on your sale!

    Wishing you well and all the best. Sounds like you had a very productive day. Hoping you have a great Sunday. I relaxed this Saturday. Didn't feel too well. Still have aches. But, it is a good day and I am going to stick to that. Take care, Sincerely, Karen

    Hi there,
    You turned a rainy day into a busy day--glad it stopped raining for you. We are having one of the noisiest thunderstorms I can remember right now.
    Buying mulch and soil sure makes it seem like we are on the way to summer--I am so looking forward to it.
    Take care and stay warm or cool or dry or whatever you need.
    Gentle hugs,
