Good 30º morning. Clouds sitting right down on top of us. Pressure going up. We may get sun.
Yesterday I went to Medford, met up with Ruth, and we proceeded to the library
(It wasn't a snow day, but the only picture I could find)
in her new little red Ford Focus, that she is so enjoying.
I was impressed with this new library. All the bells and whistles. We met up with Felicity and Sheila and we totaled up the volunteer hours our JCRW members had turned in. These people will be recognized at a later date and the club with 25000 + volunteer hours will get a national award.
Then Ruth and I headed to the Dollar Tree
for wrapping paper and bags for favors and prizes to be given at our 1 + 1 Luncheon in two weeks. Then to Veranda Park
where the luncheon will be held. We talked to the dining room manager and finalized the menu and seating...
This is a lovely retirement living location on the hill above Medford.
I left and headed for Costco. OMG, each lane in the parking lot had 4 to 5 cars waiting for parking spaces. I came home! On the way the sky looked threatening...
..... and here on the left it was pouring down rain, but none on the roadway
and coming into Rogue River you can see our mill's chimney is working full throtle....
Hopefully today I can get to Costco, early!
