Stormy Skies

We got hit with a pretty powerful line of thunder storms late Sat afternoon & immediately lost power.  We sat around for a while & just watched the crazy weather from the safety of the sun room.  When it slowed down some we decided to go out in search of power & food.
This is what the sky looked like on the way home at just about sunset!
I kept yelling at Popster to slow down, turn the car this way or that way so I could get pictures(or Kodak moments as he likes to call them)!

I spotted a partial rainbow & made him  take a right turn in the middle of a left turn, then I yelled at him to pull over.  Of course he pulls into a parking lot with a huge building in my way....I'm like pull out & into the next lot & hurry before it's gone.  It's a wonder he didn't "slap me up the side of the head"

These pics I took in the yard when we got home......Popster was all done listening to me so I had to make do with what I could see from home!

I love the night sky after a storm!  Of course we then had to sit in the dark for the rest of the night.  We have a generator that we bought last fall & had outlets wired for it in the event of a power failure but guess who couldn't remember how to start it & also didn't remember where he put the manual or the written instructions on what to do? 
Just to give you a hint it wasn't me or Molly!


  1. That rainbow is absolutely gorgeous and as it happens I'm quite partial to barns so tell Popster, thank you!
    Stunning photos as always.
    Can't believe that Lili can't remember how to run the generator!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
