See that picture above?????? I took this picture of one of our clocks at about 3:12 p.m. yesterday ---on JULY 18. Now look at the picture below.
This is the big thermometer we have on our deck. Can you see the temperature????? It says 68 degrees!!!! NOW---put that together with the time. In the middle of Summer here on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, on July 18th at 3:11 p.m. in the afternoon, the temperature here was only SIXTY-EIGHT degrees. WOW---isn't that totally amazing??????
I've heard from several bloggers who are THRILLED to have a cold front in the middle of summer. Now I can add to that------ ME TOO!!!! I LOVE it. I'm not one who enjoys hot weather---so this is like a piece of heaven to me. I wish I could bottle it --and keep it for the rest of the summer!!!!!
When I woke up this morning, I immediately put on some long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Later on, I was still cool----so I put on some heavy socks. AND---tonight, they say we may have a record low temperature here. Brrrrrrr!!!! Isn't it wonderful?????? (Okay---remind me of this when I'm complaining the middle of August that it is too darn HOT!!!! ha)
My son took this picture of Grammy with two of her grandchildren---when they visited us on Wednesday. I've already posted about this fun day---but didn't have this picture at the time. SO---I thought I'd show it today to let you know what a proud Grammy I am!!!!
Finally, please pray for a very very very good friend of mine, Thomas A. Dunbar, from Louisiana. Tommy had a serious stroke yesterday and is in the hospital in Baton Rouge. Good thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated. He and his wife are so special to me.
Have a great Sunday.
