SUNDAY POTPOURRI: RAINY DAYS, SKYLIGHTS, AND BIRTHDAYS…

What a rainy week we have had!  Every morning, I now look through the windows to see what is happening…slick sidewalks are the warning.  Although I often hear the sound of rain before I see it.

I really keep an eye on my skylight.  One year, it fell down three or four times, and on two occasions it actually broke.  The maintenance man (my favorite) applied some fix-it glue to the corners…and so far, so good.  But I still look up, checking,  whenever I enter the kitchen. 

When I first moved in, I kept looking for a switch to turn off the light…but it was the skylight, of course.  I don’t actually need light in this kitchen.   A very small galley, that door you see leads to the garage.  My favorite thing:  pulling into the garage and unloading my purchases into the kitchen, without any rain drowning me.

That floor was the bane of my existence, but nowadays, Fiona scrubs it occasionally, and I maintain it in between. 

My Fiona is the best.  And not to overlook my other granddaughter, Aubrey, I’m sure she would be, too.  But she lives in San Diego, where she is attending university. Afterwards, I am sure she will live in LA.

Nobody wants to live in Fresno.  LOL.

Wishing for great birthdays for those two girls.  I need to set up a birthday dinner for Fiona…and Aubrey, if she lived here…but she doesn’t.  We will enjoy a gathering in the summer.

Last night, I watched an interesting Amazon Prime movie starring Melissa McCarthy.  It was different from her usual films, but really good.  Can You Ever Forgive Me is based on the true story of Lee Israel, a forger of literary treasures.  Something she fell into when she hadn’t published her own work in a while, and at a time when she was destitute.  But what kept her going was the high she got from the experience.

Today I plan to stay in.  I’m reading Late in the Day, which hasn’t really grabbed me yet, but I’m hoping.

What does your Sunday look like?  Going out, staying in?  Rain or shine?
