Monday Randomness

Monday Randomness

1. The world looks a little brighter this morning. Still very cloudy, but brighter. A squirrel ventured from its safe place in search of food. It should find lots on the ground. Thursday I shared the fallen tree limbs; Friday I arrived home to find this:

This was our original feeder pole, hubby staked it when it started to lean. It eventually rusted at ground level and Friday it came down with the wind. 

2. Saturday he determined the parts needed and off we went to Wild Birds Unlimited to procure them. That afternoon he set the new pole. We had plans to move it closer to the kitchen window, and now it is. Good things come in unexpected ways.

3. His sister called to tell us a large, old tree fell at their dad’s house. Thankfully, not on the house. 

4. Sunday night I scrolled through viewers photos of their areas on weather.com. I hadn’t realized how much water covered such a vast area. My heart and prayers go out to all affected by the recent flooding. This storm was the driving force that sent Joaquin further east. 

5. I had three writing projects/deadlines last week, so once again, I apologize for not getting over to visit your blogs as much as I’d like.

  1. Dark clouds often have silver linings. Replacing something old with something new has that built-in reward. This has been a stormy end of summer/beginning of fall for many people on the coast. Monsoon in Arizona ends officially on September 30, but monsoon-like rainstorms have continued. Rain on the roof of our coach is something like rain on a tin roof. Cool. Blessings to you, Patti…

    • I like the sound of rain on a tin roof. I saw Death Valley had surprise flooding. I look forward a sunnier week ahead–maybe even a hike! It’s been so long since the weather has permitted that. Blessings to you!

  2. I feel and pray for all the people who have had to deal with this flooding, too. Sorry to hear about the tree coming down in your father-in-laws yard, but thank the Lord it did not hit his house. I am certainly looking forward to good weather here in VA Beach for while.

  3. i bet the squirrel was happy about that! we didn’t get the amount of rain they were expecting here. schools were even closed 2 hours earlier in the anticipation but luckily it didn’t add up to much….just a lot of wind and drizzle all weekend…i’ve seen some terrible pictures of flooding though and feel awful about those men who were out on the cargo ship…thank you for linking and have a great week 🙂
