After our good weather of several days, a cold front started pushing through last Sunday. It was really Monday before it arrived in force. The rain came in about mid-morning, though it was only sporadic and light, but as the day wore on, we did have some better showers. The heaviest rain fell after dark and before dawn Tuesday. In all, we had about 1.25 inches of rain. This is our first substantial rain of 2017.
Anytime we have a cold snap coming our way, Donna thaws out some stew meat and makes a big pot to last for several days. Stew is one of my favorite meals. I could eat it year around, even when the temp is hovering around 100 degrees. It certainly is one of my favorite comfort foods.
After the cold front passed through, the temps slowly began warming again, reaching the 80s by the weekend. However, each day has been pretty windy, but that is to be expected for our part of the country. But the wind makes it a bit chillier than the thermometer readings. We've resumed our regular walking, but we do try to avoid the windy days. Since it is not as windy in the morning, as a rule, we try to walk then, but it is cooler then.
The Boss said she wanted a recliner, so we went furniture shopping Friday morning. We hit all the major furniture stores in town -- except for one that has a pushy salesman. Donna found a few chairs she likes, but I only found one. We'll go back out Monday and see if we can decide on a pair. We may even go to the pushy salesman shop since they do have some good prices there.
Other than that, things have been pretty quiet around here.
