Rain at the Lake.

Today started nice enough, and we were making plans too, when the clouds came rushing over.  By early  in the afternoon, the sky was dark and rain blanketed the area.  Lightening and limited visibility reduced the view out over the lake to barely across the cove.

But by that time the gals, Loyce and Danielle had taken both trucks and all the kids on a in town shopping spree.  That left Ben and I marooned here at the lake house with only one little 200 cc scooter and a very wet pontoon boat for transportation.   We sat tight in the screen porch....

I'm not sure what we talked about all afternoon but we managed to not fall asleep anyway.  So without any excitement to blog about, it will suffice to say we had a restful day.

Tonight, Loyce and I are the baby sitters, for the evening.  The grands had big Ice Cream sundaes at Mc Donalds after our supper at home.  They were all asleep in the back of the pickup on the trip home.  I think I am glad that all that shopping didn't include me, or I might have been asleep on the way home too.

  1. Sounds like you had the same weather we had, figures since were really not that far apart. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

  2. Restful days are sometimes the very best kind. I personally prefer them to shopping.

  3. Sounds like a great day to me. I'd much rather be sitting in a screened in porch watching the rain than being dragged around stores shopping.
