After ten days of suffocating heat, in the wee hours of Friday morning a thunderstorm blew in and swept it all away with pounding rains. At least I’m told of the rain by Lucy. I heard nothing, asleep in the basement with the roar of the dehumidifier. I mowed yesterday wearing a hooded sweatshirt and was cold. Hooray! It will be hot again soon but with luck, minus the smothering humidity.
I wasn’t able to get as much work done this week as I’d hoped, but I did put up the flag. This flag was a thoughtful housewarming gift from Elaine and Ed last year when we moved in. However the house was in such calamitous condition at that time (as well as having no porch yet) that I could only fold it carefully away for another day. That day finally arrived.
It makes me so happy to look up and seeing the flag cheerfully waving.
After all these years of dreaming, I have a (partly) white farmhouse with a flag! I am blessed. Thank you, Ed and Elaine!
