Disagreeable weather predicted for the next few days. As I prepare this message (2:40), it has begun to rain. Fortunately, sixty-seven degrees (outdoors) is pleasant when I work “undercover.” I have a large covered patio, and a large carport. Likewise, a very valuable laundry room. A really ridiculous project (right?) to spend time washing bottles and vases!! On a humorous note: I’m thinking about Christmas. I’m organizing the bottles for a Christmas bottle tree. It will be similar to the one I prepared several years ago. Tiny lights are inserted into clear bottles; red and green bottles carry out holiday colors. ~~ (A monster clap of thunder at 2:44 PM that shook my trailer home.) ~~ My “Patriotic” bottles will be stored until an appropriate holiday?!
