A grand weekend

There's been a change in the weather. Last week the mercury lounged in the low 90, but yesterday the rain moved in. As were drove an hour northward last night for our performance in the northern part of the state, the wind rocked the car as we drove on the Interstate.

We unloaded our guitars just as the rain began to fall. By showtime,  water rolled off the awnings outside in sheets. The people who braved the weather darted under the covered sidewalk and stomped water from their shoes. Once inside, the headed straight for the barista for a fix of hot coffee before the show began.

The crowd last night wasn't that big but we played as if we were playing for a stadium full of people.
It was a fun gig and we made new friends as well as howdy up with old ones.

The temps dropped all through the night and by this morning it was in the low 60s and did not reach much higher today.

When we walked after lunch, took a moment to snap a few pictures of the flowers blooming by the mailbox.

These flowers are beautiful now, but as the summer wears on, they get as gangly as a teenager with raging hormones. They are also invasive. A small patch here will turn into an acre of them if left unchecked.

After the blossoms fall off, I'll smite the with a weedeater.

Tonight, I plan to retire after I post this blog and make a nice cup of herbal tea. 

I hope this has been a good weekend for you. It's been a grand one for us.

  1. So glad to hear that your weekend was grand. I suspect your music made other people's weekends also joyous. What goes around comes around.
