The Rain has Arrived!

 Good evening my friends! Resting my legs and weary grandma body on my new recliner! Just got finished pulling an oatmeal chocolate chip cake from the oven which I made from scratch! It smells so good! Will need it soon at a reunion. Packing after work Thurs. Headed for a fun few days near the beach.
      Here I am after recliner was delivered on Sat after I had a quick trip grocery store. Bought a med bowl of loaded potato soup for lunch. Good thing I did as the delivery man called me while my groceries were being checked out. They came earlier than expected...half hour early. Thankful they pulled out old recliner and let me vacuum so it'd be nice and clean. Smallest recliner they delivered that day. So comfy.

      I like the bulletin cover on Sunday at church. Studying 1 Corinthians 7....interesting chapter and background of the young church Paul helped grow helps the chapter content make more sense .
      Afterwards we went to Red Robin for lunch. It was so pretty outside! Cooler with the clouds.

      Fast forward to work week...tulip bulbs have arrived at the hardware store.  Michael told me yesterday he thought of me when he ordered them. He knows I love tulips. One of my favorites. Bulbs are from Holland. They need planted in the fall so they can bloom in spring. Some people don't know that .
      It was raining yesterday quite a bit. Here's what it looks like from the break room. I'm glad nobody's complaining about the rain. It's been quite awhile since we've had any rain. Temps are in the high 60s. Low 50s at night. People are wearing sweatshirts now. Me at home too.
 Raindrops on the top of my car last evening.
Nice old pickup in parking lot and sunset time coming closer each minute.

At breakfast I've been adding a couple drops of Young Living citrus fresh essential oil to water. I don't drink orange juice any more. It helps wake me up and helps my mentality through the day. Add lemon essential oil to my iced tea in evening. Oh so good and its a help in a few ways health wise too.
    I will be back soon with photos of the summer weekends. I am behind with the last part of Spokane trip! Take care and enjoy the last days of summer. Praying for people who are affected by hurricane Florence that's coming to east coast. My daughter in law's family lives in NC and so does a blogger friend. Scary but praying the storm won't be as huge and damaging as predicted!

It is definitely cooler out isn’t it? I enjoyed your post and catching up on your week Becky. Your recliner looks nice and comfortable and loaded baked potato soup sounds delicious. The high today is only supposed to be 62 here in Spokane. The days are getting shorter and cooler that’s for sure! I hope you have a lovely weekend my friend. Blessings, Betsy

Glad your recliner arrived and your are finding it comfortable. We are having quite a bit of rain too, which is holding up some of the jobs needing doing outside. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

That recliner looks so comfy! I would want to sit in it all day.
Praying for those poor people in the Carolinas. We have clouds from the very edge of the storm. It is huge to reach this far.
I'm loving that there are tulip bulbs out already. I have to get mine in the ground soon.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Yay for you to get a new recliner. We got two new ones too.. I'm still trying to get used to it as it has electric controls for raising the footrest, has a head rest adjustment and also lumbar adjustment! Enjoy your new easy chair. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
