Another Low Key Day at Home

We had a lot of rain overnight. Every time I woke up it seemed it was raining. This morning was humid although it didn't rain while I went for my walk/run. I didn't know if I should run or not as my back has really been bothering me but what they hey? So away I went and it hasn't seemed any worse for the rest of the day.

The day continued to be cloudy, humid and rainy so not much got accomplished except I finished my latest book by Jeffrey Archer entitled "A Prisoner of Birth". It was another excellent book. Where do people come up with these plot lines? Guess that's why I haven't written any books. I have trouble writing my blog!


I got a phone call from my older sister yesterday while I was outside reading. She gave me some hints to check out for the monthly Where Are You contest that we try to solve each month. Her hints, however, were wrong! I did manage to solve it and submit my answer and no, I'm not going to reveal the answer! I called her this afternoon to give her the information so she can mail in her reply. Sure wish she'd get a computer and learn to use it! Email is so much better than using the phone. Many of you probably don't know how much I hate the telephone. I spent 26 years as an automobile claims adjuster much of it by telephone and I still cringe when I hear it ring!

This afternoon I started another book and it seems like it's going to be another good one. I also took a little walk around looking for some photos this afternoon after the rain stopped.

I was sitting outside when Gordon came out and then tried to get back in and the door wouldn't open! Luckily he was able to get in through a window. Our lock is broken so we'll have to get another one ordered. He's fixed it temporarily in the meantime but it's not something that we can rely on now.


  1. Some people just don't get it !!
    I was a supervisor at an answering service for several years, and I still hate it when the phone rings.
    I just try not to give out my number.
    Lovely pictures, as always, Sandra.
    Happy Trails, Penny

  2. The flowers are beautiful. You've done your phone time for sure. Don't blame you for disliking the things. Computers are the way to go.

    Hugs, Karon

  3. Tell Gordon the same thing happen to Sherri and I. Our door lock broke and we were locked in. I had to climb out a window and until I could get a lock...which had to be special ordered I had to climb out and unlock the door for her every time. GEE what a hassle!
