Rain ~ Shopping ~ Billy's Soup ~ Pepper Pot Soup

Good 47º (summer!) morning. Hit 64º yesterday. Had a jacket on with a wool scarf and was wondering why I was sweating! This taken about noon....

.... and this was just taken this morning....

We did get quite a bit of wind and some rain.... just about 1/3"

Shopping day yesterday. Was going to Wal Mart but thinking about something else and missed the turn to the store so I went Fred Meyer's instead on a whim as I drove past and got flannel sheets on sale! I had broken the gold chain on the necklace Jerry had given me some time ago. Made me sad because I love that necklace and wore it all the time. Well, in Freddy's I decided to check on chains in the jewelry department. OMG, they were 60% off!!! So, I got one. YEAH. Also found Wanchai Orange Chicken in the Asian food section. It is sooooooo good! I got the last two boxes. Then............... decided to go to Wal Mart and see what their flannel sheets were like and what price. HA! They didn't even have any! So, that worked out great for me. Bargains. One thing, at least the shopping population in Wally World didn't disappoint in the way they were dressed! I should have taken my camera in with me.

Then it was off to Bill and Jeannie's for a chat and wine. Bill was making bean/ham soup and they gave me some to bring home. OMG!!! That is the BEST soup I have ever eaten!!!! Beans, veggies, kielbasa, ham ..... HEAVEN! Thanks Billy!!

On the way home there was poleece activity.... street was blocked off and there were lots of blinkie blinkies and an officer directing traffic... crime scene tape. I later heard on the news a woman had been hit and killed crossing the dark street...wearing dark clothing. Sad. For you locals this was at SW G Street and Oak.

Back home safe and sound, fire, chair, wine, and Billy's soup! Ahhhhh......

My nephew Andy is 57 years old today. How can that be??
