Random 5

My Random 5 for Friday
 
1. It rained here this week - again. I went outside because I thought I heard something and I found this limb on chicken pen. There was no damage and everyone was fine, thank goodness! The trees have had so much rain that limbs are falling  all over the yard.

2. The picture above shows a sky that I have never seen before. It looks scary, but everything was fine. It rained and we had a small amount of wind, but nothing bad.

3. The air is cool this morning, it feels like fall! Woo Hoo, come on cooler weather!

4. This week I have wanted to paint again. This is the first time that I have painted in months. It felt good to sit in front of an easel again!

5. Atticus watches me while I paint. He is good for the ego because he looks at every painting as if it were a masterpiece!

  8. Too bad you all are getting too much rain and we're turning into a dust bowl. It's cloudy right now and I'm praying at least for some sprinkles of rain. Everything is turning brown and dying.
    Our temps are 100 to 105 everyday....ugh...I'm ready for fall.

    Cats make such good company. I don't know what I'd do without mine.....unconditional love.
    Have a good weekend!
    Hugs,

  9. We have not had one drop of rain for weeks. We are just like a tinderbox waiting for the next fire to start. Last week with four lightening strickes, we had a major fire not far from Park City, Utah.
