Soggy Sunday

My Sunday afternoon plans were to mow the lawn (front and back), get the spent blooms off the rhody plants and just spend the afternoon communing with nature.  Well, the "best laid plans of mice and men" came to a halt when Mother Nature decided to "rain on my parade."   Here's the email forecast I received from the Seattle TV station KOMO this morning.  As you can see...I'll be spending the day indoors.

Dear Linda,
A big change for Sunday with cooler, soggy air moving through western Washington right now. Plan on mostly cloudy skies and showers for most of today. This afternoon we could even see a thundershower pop up thanks to some instability in the atmosphere. Highs today will only make it to the low to mid 60s.

Low pressure moves off to the east on Monday opening the door to some nice afternoon sunshine. Temperatures will rebound back to the upper 60s and low 70s.

We will lock in a ridge of high pressure for midweek. Sunshine and temps in the mid 70s will come our way for Tuesday through Thursday.

The ridge will break down just in time for the weekend. Clouds will increase on Friday along with the chance of showers.

Updated Sunday 7:50 a.m. more...

Sincerely,
KOMO 4 Weathercaster Theron Zahn

Well lucky for me there's things in the house I can do, too. (Isn't there always ?)

Tomorrow morning I'm scheduled for a routine mammogram.  I always dread the procedure

but never fail to get one on a yearly basis.  So my female journal friends....is it time to call and schedule one for yourselves ?  If so...write yourself a note, stick it to your bathroom mirror and do it the first thing Monday morning. 

We got a call yesterday that baby Marin and her mom were released from the hospital to go home.  Marin's big brother Lance (3 yrs old) saw her for the first time when daddy came to the hospital to get mom and the baby.  I would have loved to witness the moment when he first saw her.  I understand when they got home, he went right up to Marin's room and got one of her new blankets...he brought it to his mom and said "that's the doctor's blanket, this is Marin's blanket"   So they had to re wrap her in the blanket Lance had retrieved from her room. (Actually they had her in one of her blankets but they didn't argue with Lance) That was an "ahhhhh" moment when June called and told us about that.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday afternoon, until next time.......Linda in cool and damp western Washington.
