Southern Comfort Zone

When your wheelhouse is the land of cotton
The first time you leave it can be strange, it can be shocking

Not everybody drives a truck, not everybody drinks sweet tea
Not everybody owns a gun, wears a ball cap boots and jeans
Not everybody goes to church or watches every NASCAR race
Not everybody knows the words to Ring Of Fire or Amazing Grace

~Brad Paisley

We had a lot of fun, with Justin and Jackie, Friday night. We grilled supper, and sat outside. We played cornhole. It wasn’t a particularly rowdy kind of night, but still a lot of fun.

Pretty evening sky, on Friday.

Yesterday, Jackie helped me clean and rearrange the basement. I hadn’t done anything with it, since she’s moved out. It felt so good to get that done! I hadn’t decorated or arranged the basement, since we’ve moved in here, because that was Jackie’s space. Jackie took the TV that was down there, when she moved. We’d given away another one, when we moved here, so we don’t have one for down there, yet. Adam and I shopped around, and we found one today. It was a great deal, too! Just under $200, for a 50 inch smart tv. That’s a good size, for the space downstairs. We got a TV mount, to hang it on the wall, and I found a cute stand to set up below it. I got curtains coming, from Amazon, too. I’m excited to have everything come together, down there.

Today has been a quiet day, at home. My sister brought Pj over, this afternoon. We played with Pj, and chatted with my sister. Later, a storm blew in. We got some big hail! By the time I grabbed my phone, to take pictures and video, it had slowed down. It was crazy, though!

Other than all that, I don’t have much to write about. I put a boneless pork roast in my crockpot, this morning. I shredded it, and added “sweet baby rays” bbq sauce, and we had pulled pork sandwiches for supper. Adam and I took our shower this morning, so we’re just hanging out, tonight. The kids already got their rooms cleaned up, and their showers taken. It’s only 8:30pm, but I’m about ready for bed! The temps cooled down to 66 degrees, so I’ve got windows open. Cool night air is pouring in, along with the sounds of crickets and bullfrogs. We saw a lightning bug, Friday night! I love all of it. ❤️

    1. I enjoy the way the air feels and smells, right before a good thunderstorm. I prefer not to get “severe” weather, but a little thunder, rain, and even hail is fun to see. Sundays are my favorite rainy days, too. Just spending a lazy Sunday inside, with my family, that’s the best!
