I'm this happy. Fall is here.

Rain, Rain

After a whole summer of 90 degrees, and I mean every single day, we have the approach of Fall in the forecast. I knew I had always hated really hot days. I lived in South Florida for 6 years and sort of got used to it but as I have gotten older that has changed. This summer I hated the hot and sunny and muggy weather so much that I didn't even go out when I didn't have to. Every day I would watch the news to see if there would be a break in the heat. I became obsessed with having a forecast of cool weather, cool being the 80's.

It's here. It's finally here. We went to the mountains to get away from the heat. The mountains were hot and dry. I wept.

It's here. It's finally here. We can stay home and be cooler. All summer I did my shopping via computer in the air conditioned coolness of my home. I did find out it is way too easy to buy stuff by computer.

It's here. I watched the news yesterday and there are no 90's in the forecast. Thank the Lord.

Enough about the weather. I am on a tear to get onto my plan to go out once a week for a look and see trip. Art galleries, antique and gift shops, etc. Since I made the plan I have let it slide because I hate the heat so much. But from now on I will be doing a Wednesday jaunt and enjoying the wonders of East Tennessee. I have decided to keep the small car on this day and in spite of the gas prices I am going to check out areas and small towns nearby. And I am looking forward to it.

Tuesday, oh well

It's Tuesday. The weekend of Labor day we did have some cool weather. It was really really nice. Our football team played and won. Though the team they beat wasn't a real challenge. Of course they racked up the points. I always hate to see that because the losing team is probably playing their hearts out and it is sad. But really really enjoyed the cooler weather.

Skip one week. Last Saturday we did indeed get the rain and cool and flooding and lightening, etc. And the football team was handed a comeuppance. Oh well. I never was into sports. But Karma, now that's another thing.

Rambling. This should be rambling Tuesday. I am actually excited about today. I am going to go to a couple of thrift stores today and try to find some interesting fabrics to use for a couple of dolls I'm making. I'll try to post pics soon. You never know what you'll find at a thrift store so I'm sort of excited.

It's Tuesday.

I'm so excited

Hey Ho Wabbadoo! It's Friday. And it is supposed to rain and the temp is supposed to go down into the 70's today and tomorrow. And I am going to go outside and jump up and down. Well maybe not the jumping part. Anyway, I've been waiting for this since April. A decent temp to go out and grill. Or to go out and shop. Or to go out and play. Or to go out and just stand and enjoy the new deck that we had added to our house not long before the 90's showed up. O how wonderful to sit on that wonderful deck in my wonderful chair and not drip. O how elating it will be to see the sky blue and no smog. I want to be everywhere at once.

I live in Knoxville, Tennessee---Home of the Vols of the University of Tennessee. They play their first game Saturday. Everyone will be wearing orange and white. Everyone except me. I don't like football particularly. But I do enjoy the excitement of the crazy orange and white outfits and all the flags flying on the houses and cars. When I hear "It's football time in Tennessee" my blood moves a bit faster. Even tho I don't watch the game. There is just something about it.

This weekend is Labor Day weekend. Boomsday here in Ktown. You know, a huge fireworks show. On top of the first ballgame, we have another big event. Oh how those lovely folks in New York City and Chicago, etc, must envy us our culture here. Don't you just know they are all wishing they were here. Well give us another 6 weeks and many will be here. This weekend is the beginning of the slide into Fall. And here in East Tennessee Fall is a big deal. All sorts of festivals, crafts fairs, and arts options are starting up with the new season. So this week to come, my foray into the outside world will be to two art galleries that I have loved and missed going to. I will include what pics I can.

The time is rushing by. Got to go clean the darned house.
