The Rumble of Thunder

We've had a busy day. Errands to run, bills to pay. We stopped to do a little grocery shopping on the way home, all the watermelons were gone for the season but found fall crops of spaghetti squash and butternut squash. We hadn't eaten spaghetti or butternut squash since last fall so we loaded up with those. We also found gala apples, three pounds for 1.49, and Bradford pears three pounds for 1.50. It was a good shopping day but I was glad to get home. Put everything away and stretch out in the swing. It's nice and sunny today but storms are coming in this weekend and I don't intend to go out unless I have to. I hear rumbles of thunder now so the storm might not wait until tomorrow. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.

It isn't supposed to be bad, not like Irma.

@RubyHawk - I hope you have a wonderful day, too. I heard you may get a little rain early next week from Hurricane Nate, too. Stay safe!

I'm glad you had a good day yesterday. Those are some good bargains for fruit. We got rain last night, and looks like it could rain more today. I hope you have a good weekend too.

We had wind and rain from Irma and there were trees down and power outages. But we only had wind and rain. No damage at our complex.The weather forecast said we would get wind and rain from Nate but nothing bad.

@RubyHawk Aw! Disappointing. I live in an apartment too -- but I managed to find a community garden that had some room for me. Maybe there is such an opportunity in your area?

Me too since Hurricane Nate is going away from the New Orleans area into Mobile Alabama which means Lake Charles is spared any serious rain from Nate.

I hope your nice days last a long time. We've had cooler sunny days for awhile. I've enjoyed them. I don't know how it will be after the wind and rain passes through. Probably cooler.

You got some good buys for certain. We took a drive up the Mckenzie River Hwy and the leaves are turning beautifully. It has cooled off here, in the 60s now for highs and will have freezing temps in the morning soon.

Our leaves haven't changed yet but it's in the low eighties and it will be cooler soon. I hope the weathers right for us to have those pretty colors. If the weathers right we have beautiful colors but some years it doesn't happen.

The prices on gala apples is great and the price on the pears is also great!! Glad you enjoyed your shopping. I just did our monthly shopping last Wednesday and was glad too to get home and put it all away. Usually my husband helps me put the food away but he was off quickly to go hunting. He hasn't made out well yet. I love thunderstorms!

I used to enjoy getting out in the car and ride around while it was thundering and lightening. I'm not quiet as foolhardy now.
