Here’s a quick wrap up of my weekend…and last week.
We survived the storms, dodging between tornadoes and remaining mostly on high ground though streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes are at near flood levels. That’s good. Mostly. We’ve been experiencing severe drought conditions for several years, to the point that some lakes were 35 feet below normal. Yeah, we pretty much made up a lot of that in a week’s time. CRAZY! And speaking of crazy, this is a pic I took between storms one day last week. The sky was that weird dirty peach color and there was a full double rainbow so large I couldn’t get both ends with my iPhone camera.
Saturday, we had to backtrack on our way to Mountain View for the book signing. The bridge was out. Luckily, I was only a few minutes late. The Addie Davis Memorial library was very cozy, with readers sitting down in the signing room with us and visiting. I sold a few books, made some new friends, and Blue had a blast. Here he is wearing his I ❤ Mom tee shirt.
We dashed in between thunderstorms and when we’d finished, the sun had come out so we could meander through the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. Only got pictures of buffalo, long horns, flood waters, and wild flowers. It was a marvelous day and many thanks to Mrs. Lightfoot, the Mountain View library, and community!
Sunday was a kick-back day followed by dinner with LG, Only, BB, and Stormageddon at our favorite BBQ place. Storm decided everything tastes better with BBQ sauce, including green beans and fried okra. 😉
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to the moms, and Happy Just Because Day to everyone else. What did y’all do?
