Surprisingly, the Truckee area seems to have moved from drought to monsoon! It rained all night long and throughout the day. I guess there were a couple times when it was just a light rain, but it never paused long enough to let anything dry out! At least, we have electricity! We had fresh cinnamon rolls this morning (from a tube, not a bakery!). I guess we weren't quick enough with the baking because Leo snuck some goldfish for snacks and then fibbed about it, so he and grandpa butted heads a bit. jAfter that was resolved, we did some indoor things with the kids and talked to mom and dad. There is a strong winter storm headed our way, and the concert was cancelled. Disappointing. They decided to come home sooner than planned, which is the reasonable thing to do but that doesn't make it any better!
We, however, will be glad to have them back home. Bob and I decided we wanted to make a batch of beef stew for supper, so Bob went to get the groceries that we would need for that. The afternoon was spent with football for most of the household, while a couple of us accomplished a few other tasks.
We got the stew all ready to go and into the oven, but checked it awhile later (closer to supper time) and the oven wasn't turned on! It had preheated, but the power blinked off for awhile and that must have shut the oven off! So, we ended up making a little supper for the kids and then the adults ate the stew later.
When we went out to the trailer with the kids for bedtime, we discovered that for the first time, we have a couple water leaks! Just some drips, one from the ceiling in the bedroom and another in the bathroom. We dried things up as well as we could and tried to catch the drips until we could get a better look in the morning. I guess 24+ hours of rain aren't good for our trailer roof!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
