Hi everyone....It's a lazy Thursday...that's for sure...so today's post is going to be ultra simple...well, you know me...I have a penchant for "type-chatter"..hee hee hee :) :)...so I'll try and keep it short.
The local power company was replacing the transformer for our entire apartment complex today. So the power was turned off for a little over five hours. I wasn't able to do anything on the computer, turn on lights...nothing. It actually wasn't so bad. My dad and I were running around completing some errands.
We did everything in the morning because it's.... H-O-T hot in Oregon now...about 100 Degrees Fahrenheit and humid....although rumor has it, that there might be a rainstorm/thunderstorm combo :) :) :)...oh yes, pretty, pretty please....God send me a rainstorm :) :)
After we were done with our errands my dad treated me...and also himself to breakfast at Sonic...It's a drive-in place...love it. It reminds me of the old drive-in places that were really common when my dad was a kid :) :) Here's a photo that I took from the passenger seat of the car....just a small sample of the car park spots...Mostly empty this morning except for my dad and I and one other car....
I love Sonic. They play the best music on their radio. The food is always good...and you can just pull into a spot, press the magic red button and order!!! Oh, and if you're lucky you'll get a server on "roller skates"...to roll your food right to your car!!!!
After we got our food, we drove about 100 feet over to this empty "driveway" near Sonic. It has a perfect view of a walking path AND the local airport. My dad loves to watch planes take off and land. Every day is different....but today must have been a good day for flying...we saw 7 little planes (I call them planelets) land...and one plane take off !!!! So cool.
This morning it was nothing but blue skies and already heading towards 80 Degrees Fahrenheit by 8 a.m. By the time we reached Sonic the clouds were coming in a little bit. I'm praying for that rain storm...it'll help keep cool things down for a little bit...and I want photos...so I put in my request with God...we'll see what happens :) :) :)..If it rains, I'll make sure and take photos for you all. The next couple of photos are part of the airport and the skies above the mountains!!!.....
I joined a super fun "Tea Time Tuesday" party over at Sandi's place at "Rose Chintz Cottage Inspiriation". Click here or the button on my sidebar to take a peek and join, if you'd like :) :)
I've been absolutely overjoyed at the new blogs I've found...lots of "kindred spirits" out there who love tea and pretty things...in fact...every single person who's joined my blog...all have great things!!!!...and great people, too!!!
WELCOME TO: Amy of Vintage P orcelain Art. Click here to view her blog. She handpaints china...it's such a beautiful art. I wish I could do what she does. Her pieces are absolutely breathtaking...take a peek...you will be very happy you paid her a vist!!! I remember seeing ladies paint china at the L.A. County Fair as a girl...so to see her artwork brought back some very precious memories for me, too!!! Thanks Amy!!!!
WELCOME TO: Pam at A Breath of Fresh Air. Click here to view her blog. Her post from Tuesday with all the pretty tea things...was really neat...and my favorite was the photo with the Bible opened up.!!!!! She participates in Tea Time Tuesday just like me...and there's a link on her site if you want to take part.
I make sure to post links, buttons etc to all the ladies who join my blog...so you can check them out :) :) :) That's about it for the moment. The heat is making me wilt a little bit. I think it's time for a nice cup of cold iced tea....anyone have a good recipe for cold sweet tea? Is there such a thing? I'd really like to make some!!!
Here's the link to my post from quite a few days ago on how I make my French bath mitts. Click here. There's a lot of work that goes in to writing a knitting pattern. These are easy to make. Mine are ultra simple because money is really tight...so it helps stretch my dollar. Once you learn the basic pattern..knitting it 5 inches wide x 7 inches high...you can manipulate any way you want to!!! Oh...and remember it's actually 10 inches knit in the round...but 5 inches wide when you lay it out flat!!! If you have any questions, please ask. I'll do my best to answer your questions!!!
Oh, thanks again for paying me a visit and leaving comments. I LOVE comments!!!! Have a great Thursday everyone!!!! It's a lazy Thursday...for sure...but a good Thursday!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!
That's the news from Oregon. Love and hugs, Heather :) :) :)
