Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Today is T#3’s birthday … I cannot imagine life without him … and we almost faced that possibility 5 years ago.  He’s going to celebrate his birthday today at Six Flags today with his family (except for T#4, who’s still just too little to be able to enjoy Six Flags … she’ll be staying here at Nana’s house).

We got some rain last night!  Not nearly enough to do any good (another .17”), but it rained!

The heat wave continues … at least we’re not having 100+ temperatures … although is there really much discernible difference between 98 and 101?  Winking smile


  1. I'll bet you're thrilled that T#4 is too little to go to Six Flags! :) Happy Birthday to T#3!

    I'm glad you got rain! We are getting daily rains and thunderstorms here. I asked my husband if our water table is getting back to normal and he said that would take a long, long time! It does keep our temperatures tolerable though!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy birthday to him! It sounds like it will be a fun day for him.

    That heat is amazing! When will it end???

  3. The difference is psychological not physical. I would love to say it is 98 right now. Our high is supposed to be 112 today.

  4. rain! every little bit helps - that's what I tell myself. and to me 98 is still very very hot.

  5. I hope the heat breaks soon! I hate what it is doing to all of the farmers in the Midwest. Happy Birthday to your T#3.. five is such a fun age. :) Have fun babysitting! xo

  6. Speaking of rain........we're here in DesMoines at my brothers and I've never seen an area so dry in my life. It is really pitiful! This is generally the most beautiful, lush green area and everything is brown and burnt up. They are in such desperate need. Happy Birthday to T#3!

  7. Happy Weekend my friend; I know you'll be sewing so I hope it is cool enough to sew comfortably. Last night we had cooler temps and wind-it really felt like fall-yippee because for me that ushers in the serious sewing season. Happy Birthday to T#3.
    Hugs today.

  8. Goodness, this post could have been written by me about our rain, or rather lack there of, here.

    The song "Showers of Blessings" has taken on new meaning for me.

  9. I was thinking today just how I can't think when it is hot day after day. You have had this heat for months. Mine has been so short of an amount of time.
    I hope you have such a wonderful day. A nice weekend too.

  10. Happy Birthday to T#3!
    I used to sing "Rain, Rain, Go Away". Now I am grateful for every drop.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. rain? You got rain? Lucky you. But, I am thinking this TS Ernesto just may bring us some. I'm hoping the path doesn't make a direct hit over our city tho. And then, there is Florence out there, but it looks like it may remain on the Atlantic coast.

    You say you 'cannot imagine life WITH him'...I'm sure you mean withOUT him, right? Happy birthday...belated, but my wishes are still true.

    1. Oh my, Anni, thanks for catching that typo ... yes, obviously WIHTOUT him! ;-)


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
