I haven't accomplished much this weekend except getting sick and snuggling under this warm WVU throw. Thank goodness for the JGH Clinic at Walmart being open on weekends. I don't think I could have waited until Monday.
I like to turn out the overhead light and turn on my motion lamp.
Do you remember these from the 1950s and 1960s.
I love them. When I was young, I remember that we had one with a lighthouse on it.
This one is of waterfalls and I was lucky enough to get it at a yard sale quite a few years ago for only $3.
They are so soothing to watch.
I finally got around to cracking a big bag of black walnuts that had been out in the garage since December. I got a quart bag out of them and put them in the freezer. I love black walnuts, they are my favorite nuts to put in fudge, brownies, etc. Wish I had a batch of brownies with black walnuts in them right now.
And, last but not least, we discovered a bullet hole in our house! Seems it hit one of our big front porch columns and then swerved and landed in our siding near the garage door. If it had been an inch to the left, it would have missed the column and went into our sliding glass doors of our family room. Right where I sit at my computer!
We don't know when it happened, but it had to be within the last couple of days (or nights).
It's a little scary. We could have been outside when it happened and that would have put quite a scare in me. The Sheriff's Department came out and then talked to a few neighbors from the direction of the bullet. They seem to think it might have came from people shooting at coyotes on the ridge.
We were very lucky that the bad weather missed us on Friday. We got a bad storm that only lasted fifteen or twenty minutes.
What's been happening in your neighborhood.
