The day has been one that you would really loved to just stay home with a good book, embroidering, or working on a picture puzzle. I worked part of the day at my part time job. It wasn't raining when I left, but it was when I came home. Thank goodness my jacket is water proof so I didn't get that wet.
I don't know about you all, but I loved Thomas Kincaid's picture puzzles. The one on the left is one of them that I have worked. Some of them I would love to frame and hang on my wall to decorate my apartment.
When I can't sleep, I have been known to work on a puzzle for awhile or read a book.
I feel so sorry for those whose homes have flooded and we are getting more rain plus the river is still up.One of our highways is still closed and you can't get from here to Omaha without going around robin as the saying goes. They had said it would be opened by June but with all the rain we are getting I don't think that will happen. It is heart breaking to see all of the damage that has been done because of the flooding.
Have you ever been around homeless people? It can be a wake up call to make you be thankful that you have a roof over your head and food on your table. Some look like they could really do something even if it meant picking up trash off the streets. I wouldn't want to live like that. At my part time job, I can see them out the window where they stay during the day and come across to the building that I work at where they are fed supper and have a place to sleep. If they lose their privilege by disobeying the rules they are banned and not allowed back in. Some are trying to turn their life around where others aren't. The bookkeeping is different then what I use to do, but I am learning. I was told a long time ago if you could do automotive bookkeeping you could do anybody's books. When I work, I try to leave before they start coming in for supper and their night in a warm building and bed. It gives me a little extra money.
I am going to a fundraiser for there this weekend. It is my first experience of doing something like that. The theme is the 50's with a silent auction and a live auction. They will have music from that era also. I have seen some of the things for the silent auction. There is a couple of the baskets they made up that I wouldn't mind bidding on. Each of them have themes for different colleges, football teams, and gardening just to name a few.
My leg has bothered me today but it is just because of the weather; It has been almost two years since I broke it in a car wreck. Take care.
