It's Raining, It's Raining

Well, the weather service was correct, for once. It started raining about noon or so and it has been constant. It is 10:23 pm now (according to my laptop) and it may have stopped. The wind is blowing pretty hard too.

Yesterday I told Gerry we needed to go to Costco today. So this morning I said to him that I wanted to go before it started to rain. We left the house about 11 am. After we got our shopping done, we stopped to have a hot dog and cold drink. For $1.50, can't beat that for lunch. While we were sitting having our hot dog, we saw a friend of ours. She and her husband had just gotten to Costco and were going to eat first before they shopped. Gerry walked over to talk to Bob who was already seated and then I went over to join them. Donna brought their lunch and we visited for a while. We got up to leave and it was raining. Donna said it was sprinkling when they walked into Costco.

Gerry has known Bob and Donna since they were in high school at Folsom High. They were sophmores and Gerry was a senior. Bob & Donna were part of the youth group at Community Bible Church in Folsom where Gerry's dad pastored. They were married after they graduated. Donna found Gerry through Classmates.com. Right after they made contact, we met them for lunch over in Old Folsom. They eat at the Japanese restaurant I eat at on a weekly basis. I see them in there once in awhile. They are a neat couple and have come to enjoy visiting with them. Bob had a brain tumor removed several years ago and is unable to use his right arm and hand. All things considered, he does quite well.

The van needed some new windshield wipers so Gerry went back into the store to get some while I waited outside. He wanted to go to Trader Joe's so we drove over there. By then it was raining pretty hard. We finally got home after 3 pm.

I hadn't taken anything out for dinner so I fixed some Portuguese sausage with rice for dinner. It was quick and easy. Jason called and said he was coming over to bring Gerry a cable cutter that Jason had gotten for him. We were eating when he got here. He stayed for about an hour or so and visited. By the time he left, it was raining really hard and he didn't have a jacket with him. It is always good to see him.

The rain is suppose to continue into tomorrow so Gerry may not be able to ride. He was going to have to drive to the ride start in West Sacramento and then they were riding over to Davis and beyond. Thursday is suppose to be clear and then more rain Friday.

So not a very exciting day today. Tomorrow I really need to be at my craft table. I am doing a shoebox card swap on Saturday, am making a Mother's Day card and Easter card. Then I need to make kits of the two cards for 10 people. Plus I need to figure out a salad of some kind and a main dish for the potluck. I'll have the card samples I make over on my Elegant Reflections blog soon as I get them made.


  1. Wow, it seems like quite awhile since you made any new cards. Looking forward to seeing them.

  2. Yeah, huh! I need to park myself at my craft table today and get them done or I won't be ready for Saturday. Its sure yucky outside, its not raining right now though. Gerry didn't go ride.
