Cold on the way

After a beautiful weekin the 80's, a super cell cold front is heading our way. At least we won't have the snow and ice that the North is expecting. But we will dip down into the 20's which could be bad for our Citrus crops. But it will be short lived thank goodness. Had a great attendance in church yesterday. 51...a record so far. Heading out to do some weedeating today. With the small amount of rain that we got last week, weeds are finaly growing again!!

Cloudy and cooler

Well after a nice Sunday we are now looking at cloudy and cooler days ahead for about a week. Not complaining because it is definately better than anywhere up North. Our temps this week will be in the 60's. Guess this helps us appreciate those 90's and 100's coming soon enough.!!
Great attendance in church yesterday. 41 people and a quartet providing us with great music. Looking forward to a Chili/soup and pie supper tonight in the Rec Hall. Wish you could all be here to join us.

Beautiful Day

Well after a foggy start, the sun has come out and its going into the lower 80's today!! Had a wonderful time last night at Entertainment. 83 people attended which is fantastic for our little park. Today will be rather quiet (I hope). Computer lab this afternoon, then an evening of quiet at home (again I hope). If anything else exciting happens, I'll come back on and let you all know about it.

Temps on the rebound

Well finally the coats are back in the closet and its going back into the 80's. Thank goodness for small favors. Once the sun came out yesterday, everyone came out of hiding and had smiles again. Amazing how much good the Sun can do to everyones attitude!!!
This morning we are graced with FOG but hopefully the Sun will reappear this afternoon. Looking forward to some great entertainment tonight at the Rec Hall. Busy week ahead. More later folks

Drizzly Day

Well it was alittle warmer today but drizzly. We do need the moisture but would rather have a good rain than a cold drizzle. Guess we will take what we can get. Had a lot of fun in Sign Language class today. Went out to eat with a friend and now just relaxing watching TV. Oh yeah, got a load of laundry going. May have to replace the washer/dryer as it shakes the whole house!! Can't get it balanced. May replace it with a smaller stack unit. All for now.

Wow-come back SUN...we miss you

Wow, this weather is awful...wind chill is 32 right now....that is very cold for down here. Luckily it will bounce back into the low 60's tomorrow!! But it can't come fast enough. The crowds at coffe and donuts this morning stayed longer then usual...nobody wanted to venture out to return to their homes. Drizzle and wind chills at freezing!! But they eventually did return home and now the roads are quiet as everyone is remaining indoors for the duration, including me.Guess it will be a good day to put on a pot of Chili Soup for supper.

Jan 12 - Cold Front

Well a cold front has moved into our area. Dropped down into the 30's Monday night with drizzle and wind. Made it feel pretty miserable but I guess its alot better than anywhere up North. at least we don't have that  white stuff to deal with. One more day of cold temps and then we wil bounce back to the 70's and 80's.
Yesterday was a day for everyone to just stay inside and stay warm!! Today will be more of the same I think. Had a great meal at a friends last night...homemade Ham/cheese/Potato soup. Boy did that hit the spot on a cold night. Had to make a quick trip to Walmart after supper to pick up a DVD player we had home and found out our TV is so old, it doesn't have the ports to connect to....hum.... Guess Marshall has his work cut out for him trying to make it work. All for now. Everyone stay safe and warm.

Sunday Jan 9 2011

Wow, we had a great turnout for Church today...40 in attendance. For our small park, that was wonderful. We heard a great message about "Soaring like an Eagle", letting God raise you above your troubles. Have patience to wait for Gods answer when you pray, don't expect it intantly!!

Last night it rained but not enough to do any good down here. Its a beautiful sunny day today heading for 78 degrees. Not sure what I want to do today....will play the day by ear and see what the day brings. Will post more tonight. Have a great day all!!

Jan 8 2011

Well woke up around 6am. Helped the gang at the club house cook breakfast for the park. I got to flip Pancakes...I enjoy these twice monthly fundraisers!! Had a great turnout today. About 53-60 people showed up. Then got together with friends and practiced our music for church service tomorrow. We don't have an organist this year so we have assembled a small group with a fiddle, and two guitars.
Weather is kinda cloudy today but 74 degrees. They are calling for heavy storms tonight. Not excited about the "storm" part but we sure do need the rain. We haven't had any measurable rainfall in Mission TX since late August!!! Think I'll grab a friend and head to the Mexican Flea Market down the road. Otherwise I just may fall alseep...all for now
