Life has been busy the past week! Parties, graduation, and unusual weather! We had record heat on Monday--110 degrees F. and then rain and hail on Thursday with a high of 72 degrees F. We set a new low--the lowest in history on the 22nd of May! It was 55 degrees F. that night! First time in 33 years that it rained on my hometown's graduation night. Usually it's hot, hot, hot.
The beautiful green and red bell peppers and the chili peppers are from my daughter's garden. They were grilled for the graduation party. The graduation was held outside on the high school's football field. The wind blew in the second storm of the day and soon we were drenched! We were freezing! With nowhere to get under cover, everyone braved it out, soaking, until their kids received their diplomas.
At the end of the week we are still cool- in the 80's. Summer 's normal hot weather will return by Thursday and we will be back to the triple digits. I think I will welcome the familiar. I'm getting too old for all this excitement!
