Two more cool pictures from last night’s sunset. Sooooooo beautiful. It’s clear why Thomas thought it would be awesome to have a roof that opens so we could see this inspiring sky from inside the house!
Sandra wanted wild n crazy purple … so she got black lava and purple mother of pearl! Thank you tons and tons for your support! Sandra is a new FB friend and not a part of the “C18 family”. We are blessed by her kindness! It’s on the way to you Sandra!!

Today was the day Thomas only has one class so I wait at TMCC. More beautiful flowers, and I explored the library this time. I love the library. Great chairs and tables to read, or do work, with an amazing view from the second floor.

Progression of the clouds yesterday afternoon before we got about 20 drops of rain! 😂Smelled and felt so good.
August 5 2022
After the downpour of rain last night. That was a wild storm! Lightning strikes very close to us, with the loudest booming, cracking thunder I’ve ever heard. One struck so close to a car in front of our place, that it caused the car alarm to go off. Lillian and I screamed, with Basil running to hide. Wild!
August 6 2022
I think this was Thursday, maybe Friday.
Thomas’s hiking/camping trip had to end a day early due to the wild storm moving through. I didn’t feel up to picking him up, so thank you times a million to Frank for doing it for me.
