Really Random Thursday, 2/1/24


Somehow January completely slipped by without a single Really  Random post. There has been a lot going on behind the scenes but not enough that warranted a post. Although I have found a few memes that made me chuckle.

The rain locally is supposed to become an atmospheric river in the next couple of days. I don't ever remember hearing that phrase until a year or so ago. We'll see.  Lots of times things are forecasted for Fresno that completely bypass us. And this could be one of those times. Time will tell...

We had a couple of grandkids overnight two Friday nights in a row. The first time it was just Gabe and Ella. Not sure what we were watching here, but he sure is growing. I think he's only about an inch shorter than me at this point. 
A friend of ours (hi, Gary Barber) plays trombone in a community band, and when he posted this, it looked like a really fun concert. Tickets were free, and since Gabe is now playing trumpet, it seemed like something he would enjoy.

The concert was very good. The conductor gave a little back story before each song, and yes, a few times it did sound like a train was actually in the auditorium. We are looking forward to the concert in March.
Not happening here, but an idea for those of you with snow.

Last weekend, with the forecasted rain, Mark decided he better get the roses fed. It was a really nice day, and both Gabe and Ella helped with that chore.

I'll be writing soon about other things going on but for now, a lot of overthinking is happening.

I have been watching the weather for Cali lately. So much water! And I agree about the atmospheric river term. Seems new to me too in the last few years.

Atmospheric River used to be Pineapple Express. Low Volume fabrics used to be "lights". Everything changes. Those grandkids are getting so big...and so helpful! How fun to go to a concert that was so enjoyable and that a fellow trombone player could enjoy. Love the memes. I'm glad we are not having the same winter we had last year!! Won't be doing the car face (LOL).

So many good memes. Overthinking? Who's overthinking? Not me. haha. I'm jealous of your green grass. We have snow and won't see things green up until May. I'm so over winter and being cold. BTW I think I was lame about responding to your calendar. Love Love love the photo combos this year. Your'e so good at in the wild quilt photos.
