2019 August 31 Saturday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

62° and cloudy with sprinkles. The rain never came, but the clouds persisted, so that it only reached 67° for the high.

A tiny amount of color in the sky but mostly gray and overcast this morning.

The morning coffee club merry at the clubhouse instead of the cafe. We had eggs to order, hash browns, and sausage.

My sleep pattern for last night night … or more precisely, this morning.

We had the pleasure of watching great grandson, Henry, while dad and mom went kayaking down the Raccoon River.

Great grandma and Henry discussing how to put the lid on his milk. We went to the cafe for pizza. Then home for a nap.

Grandma playing with his favorite toy.

I laid some plywood on the bed of the truck. I them laid indoor / outdoor carpet. Then came the loading of things from our shed. Most of this stuff will go to the shed in Texas.

Our emergency food and water will stay in the truck as will our to-go duffle bags. Since we live in an RV trailer, we think it prudent to have emergency supplies in the truck. You never know when we might have to abandon our home because of wind, rain, floods, fires, or unknown events.

It was a good day to be outside. I spent some time picking up sticks and burning them.

It was also a good evening to sit and watch the fire.

God bless and g’nite
