Theme Song Thursday:) Here Comes the Rain Again

7 Sep

“Into each life some rain must fall, but if you are with friends and family, it doesn’t matter.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

“Into each life some rain must fall,

Some days must be dark and dreary.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We had some well needed rain off and on today. It was also garbage day, so I decided to let God rinse out my garbage cans. (I’m so smart) Yesterday, He was kind enough to wash my car. Isn’t it nice when He saves you time and money?

This evening, my weather app sounded a

warning of possible flooding and severe weather in Collin County. I was supposed to meet my friends at the VFW for karaoke. Should I go or stay home? I decided to go anyway because my dear friend Sherri Murphy was going to meet me there. We texted and decided to take a chance. It never did rain.

We arrived at the same time and I asked Bob to take our picture in front of the big green tank.

I told Sherri that I had the perfect caption for our photo…

TONI AND SHERRI GET TANKED AT THE McKINNEY VFW.

Well, even though we braved the possible storms, it turned out that Danny, the DJ had mechanical difficulties and his music hard drive had crashed, so there was no music. Oh no! We all sat in the quiet hall while Danny went somewhere to try and get some help. We thought, maybe we should leave. I took my cell phone, found the Cupid Shuffle on YouTube, and put it next to a microphone. A bunch of us got up to dance.

If you can’t sing, you might as well dance. Then we went home. There’s always next week.

Good to see you Sherri, and thanks for recording our silly dance.

Saturday:) Sittin’ Around, Smoothies and Stormy Weather

19 Aug

“I sometimes find myself sitting here not watching an uninteresting movie and contemplating the future. I don’t always know what to do, but I have faith that I’ll figure it out somehow.”

D.S. Mixell

“It was a dark and stormy night..l” Ay, a writer’s joke. Never use that as an opening line. Actually, it can apply here. It is dark and stormy, but a welcome relief from the oppressive heat of the day. I didn’t realize it was even going to rain until the sky got dark and rumbling clamored in the sky.

My sister is here visiting, and we were just sittin’ around watching the Jesse Stone marathon on the Hallmark channel when the sky let loose. We had our popcorn and the smoothies waiting in the fridge for dessert. As luck would have it, Direct TV went out, right when Jesse was about to capture the bad guy. (For the tenth time.) Who doesn’t love Tom Selleck? Well, at least any female over 30 and under the age of 200.

We are lucky, the electricity hasn’t gone out…yet, so we are just watching the storm and I’m writing my blog and just sittin’ around, savage and sound. Blessed!
