Just a smidgen of this and that

Alex had his first day at the beach last week end. In between deluges, I imagine, at least from all the weather reports. I know it rarely stopped raining here inland. It looks like it was fun from the photos! Especially the second. He was really chillin' with that bottle wasn't he?

We have a leak in our dining room ceiling thanks to TS Faye. Amy and Elias's roof is leaking in three places. So much so that they had to put a tarp on the roof. Laura's bedroom was flooded; Oviedo got hit hard. The sun is shining brightly today for the first time in a week. And it is so hot I can almost smell brimstone. But, whos's complaining? Everything needs to dry out.

Here's hoping that any swirly things out in the ocean don't come here no more!

I was kind of sad to see the Olympics end. The Democratic Convention just won't be as compelling somehow. No gold medals there. Or silver either. Not even bronze.

Word of the day: smidgen- noun meaning a small amount. As in "A smidgen of sunshine is far better than a bucket of rain after five frelling days in the house."

Live long and prosper.
