2019 July 31 Wednesday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

63° and mostly sunny. It was a great night to sleep with the windows and doors open. We will do so again tonight. It slowly climbed to 72° under cloudy conditions and then a nice rain (no storm) came through. It may have changed some outdoor plans but was still welcome. By 10 pm it was 66° which is why I am anticipating a great night of sleep.

We did not go to Cutty’s cafe this morning. We did some lite housework and other small projects before going to the Grimes senior center for lunch.

This would have been my mother’s 112th birthday had she not died in 1994 at 87 years old.

At the center Joyce, Ella, and i played Fast Track. I beat them the first 2 games and then let them play by themselves.

I sat on the couch and worked on the bulletin for August 11th. After I emailed it to the church office for printing, I realized that I had included a wrong scripture. I quickly corrected it and emailed the updated version. This evening I received confirmation that it was printed. I work the fee booth from 8-3:30 tomorrow so I’ll try to go after work. Ella reminded me that we have a family reunion at the church this Saturday. I can get the bulletins then. And they are for next week, not this coming Sunday.

Good group at the senior center. Wednesdays are bingo days at the center. Most days we stay. I don’t play. However Ella enjoys it. I am not fond of games which are pure chance with no skill at all. However, today we are expecting guests at home this afternoon.

I stopped at the local True Value hardware for a spring and some metal screws.

And ta da! a self closing screen door.

My niece, great niece, and great great niece and nephew came out to visit today. The plan was to swim in the outdoor pools. However, the rain put a kibosh on the outdoor swimming, as well as the outdoor grilling. However, we cooked inside, ate outside under the awning, and then the kids all went indoor swimming.

After The rain, a little color from the sunset.

God bless and g’nite
