Still Stormy

We’ve had some stormy weather with wind, downpours, thunder and lightening. The ground was so soaked that we took the opportunity to pull a lot of weeds that were easier to pull up.

On the Fourth the skies cleared up just in time for a gathering of lots of church folks at a family from church’s home. Everyone brought their own meat to throw on the barbecues. We all got a grilling number when we arrived. We were number 7. Everyone also brought sides and desserts to share with everyone. It was a feast. We left about halfway through the Corn hole tournament. There were enough corn holes for 8 teams to play at a time. We made it home just in time for another downpour. Hope the corn hole tournament wasn’t rained out!

With all the storms this summer it was safe enough to shoot off lots fireworks.

Walking early this morning with a new friend from church who just moved back to Colville from Montana. It’s going to be hard to remember what day of the week it is since the Fourth landed on a Monday.

If the rain is over for a few days Dear will be able to continue on the exterior painting project.

  1. Your Fourth of July time of celebration with church family sounds like a lot of fun! We’ve been having storms here too…more so than usual for this time of year. I enjoyed your pictures…love the sweet arbor I’m hoping that the rain that is forecast for us today holds off long enough for me to do some work in my recently enlarged flowerbed.

  2. Everything looks so nice over there. We need rain desperately over here (got a bit this morning but need much more). The weeds seem to thrive even during drought conditions. Sounds like you had a wonderful 4th!!
