Well weather wise it has been unsettled all week. Humidity and pollen counts have been high and the temperatures have been balmy but the skies have been mostly overcast rarely letting us see the sun and rain has been frequent.
Thursday afternoon the Olympic torch came through our town and of course the weather had to be a huge part and the Mother of all storms descended on us.
|Lightning just about to bolt to the ground|
Of course nothing dire happened at my work which is good, but I didn't get any time off either!!
The storm did clear in time for the torch going through town, but I think the storm ended up getting far more news coverage.
|And it strikes!|
(The above pictures were the view of the storm from the front of my house).
As for the birthday part of the post...well my blog has officially been running 3 years today, I don't know if I really expected it to still be going after so long when I first started it up but I would like to thank all those people who have given me help, advice and encouragement over the years and so I am giving away a book on herbs to one of my readers.
|It tells you all about the herbs, their uses and when and where they grow...all you have to do to enter is leave a comment and someone will be picked at random.|
Have a good weekend!!
