. . . ."How SWEET It Is"
There, I've got my SWEET blog in for tonight.
Please scroll down
Just kidding around while I think of tonight's topic and now I think I have come up with it.
But first let me say that my number one daughter Yarntangler seems to be trying to outgun me.
I did some research last night on Google to come up with the word SWEET , as in songs, wooing ways, baking cookies, making candy, and here she announces in her Saturday blog she did too. And Spiritual Astronomer apparently may have done the same.
So - let's try something with the word SOUR and turn it into SWEET.
This morning Lady B and I, still exhausted from our first day or organizing and staffing a yard sale, got up at 6:30 to begin the task of getting the junk out in the driveway for another try.
We found it to be a SOUR beginning to the day, temperature down below
50* (a big change from Thursday's 100*), cloudy and dark, breezy, with a rumble of thunder in the distance and Pinky trembling terribly (she's the thunderstorm forecaster even when one is hours away) - yeah, quite SOUR.
With sweaters on and hot coffee brewing, we got to work and then waited for our first customer - for an hour and a half. When he arrived, his first comment was "cold, gonna rain soon" - a very SOUR comment I'd say.
BREAK -BREAK - WE INTERRUPT AT THIS TIME, 7:32 PM AS WE WRITE - TO ANNOUNCE A SEVERE THUNDERCLAP SIGNALING THE ARRIVAL OF PINKY'S FORECASTED STORM. THE POWER MAY GO OUT SO MUST CONCLUDE REAL FAST.
Returning to the theme, it was about 11:30 when Mother Nature apparently sprinkled the sky with sugar - making it SWEET as the clouds rolled away.
Within an hour the sun SWEETLY shone brightly, there was no breeze and the temperature rose to about 70*.
As Jackie said "How SWEET it is."
