time out

IMG_7904 Isn't this a pretty picture. And funny too, considering that the heat index on Friday was 125! My dad is visiting this weekend, and last night as we were watching a movie and I could see the lightening flashing all around us, I remembered that the last time he was here that happened. Yeah, that snowfall. I looked out the same windows and saw flakes swirling instead of flashes of purple and blue. Funny how that works.

In the meantime we're staying busy cooking and eating and shopping waiting for the lockout to end and maybe shopping for a new car which is both yay and ugh, but I think I need to take a couple days. I'll be back before the end of the week.

And this picture notwithstanding, I am thinking about fall. Lots of italics in the post today.
