MIAGD: Make it a great day
My Dark Sky weather app on my phone sounded at 6:37 AM with an 11-minute warning that heavy rains would begin.
It was a horrible night for sleep as I was up and down the stairs for nature breaks a half dozen times due to the fact I’d enjoyed a delicious Mexican dinner (with the lovely Chelle Kakac!) and I knew the enormous amount of chips and would trigger my diabetes despite taking my medication. The last thing I wanted to do was start my day so early. I was thinking 8:30 AM!
I hurried the dogs down and into the backyard for pottying while I made a brief walk of the front yard. A brilliant orange glow forced its way through the shadowed trees and eaves toward the east as the menacing grey skies surrounded from all other sides.
My eleven-minute warning as spot on. The accuracy of the Dark Sky app is amazing each time and it is the app on which I rely the most for my weather forecast.
I stepped onto the deck and with little fanfare the deluge began.
Breakfast is usually at 8:00 AM so we’re snuggled up in my room which is completely 95% black as the dark skies surpass the sun’s reign. Harrigan is pressed against me as the enormous thunder pounds down and Bailey is curled on her favorite pillow. Chief is stretched out on his large doggie bed, snoring and oblivious to the thunder.
I spent a delightful evening with a dear friend and former studio mom, Chelle Kakac, dining at Elsa’s Mexican Restaurant and then we moved on next door to Epiphany Lutheran Church’s production, THE SECRET GARDEN. It was a superb production!
The front yard has four Mary Lincoln day lilies who will not witness the sunshine like their predecessors as the rains are to pour all day.
With the anticipated high winds it appears it will be a day spent indoors which I resent. I absolutely love my deck time. Still, I intended to make it a great day.
