The road down the street from my house is in the process of getting repaved and it is causing quite a mess with the traffic. Two intersections are involved and they have turned off the traffic lights and have workers directing traffic while the work is going on.They started work just when everyone was trying to get out of the neighborhoods to go to work.
This morning I walked passed stopped cars and these people were not happy at all!! I walked about 1/2 mile without the line of cars going anywhere at all.
The lines of waiting cars grew longer and longer.You can see people here turning around.This one is from my deck.People were cutting through the shopping center parking lot hoping that would be better but it didn't help. I'm glad I didn't have to go out in the car today. It would have taken forever to get out of my own street. What a mess. Lots of horn blowing this morning and I can just imagine how frustrated all these drivers were. By noon thank goodness the intersections were back to normal.
Ken left early enough in the morning before things were too much of a problem. :-)
Thanks to Kerri and Cheryl I learned that the black bird with the brown head I saw yesterday is a Brown Headed Cowbird. I looked it up in my bird book and it said that they lay their eggs in other birds nests leaving their babies to be cared for by these foster bird parents.
Last evening when I went to the Bible study group I looked in the folders to see if I had anything there from my secret sister. There wasn't, but there was an envelope that said for the secret sister of Tracy S......... . In the envelope was a thank you note for me saying how much she has enjoyed all the little notes and things I've been leaving for her. How nice of her! and it certainly made my day. :-)
I have been eating lunch at 1:30. I like eating this late because then dinner comes around that much faster!
I've eaten lunch and I have to put the clean sheets on the bed yet, then I will read for a while. Ken is going to try to come home from work early this afternoon so we can go and get the rest of the stone to finish our project from the Saturday.
This Thursday is one fine day and I'm and thankful that I am here to enjoy it.
