We had a impressive thunderstorm around 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. When I work up with the alarm, the lake was back!

I took the trash out to the road and then drove to work. It wasn't raining, but it was foggy (or misty - I don't know which).

By  10:00 a.m., it was a beautiful day.

I got a bowl of chicken noodle soup for lunch. I took in the toy box front face and showed Amanda how the veneer edging had worn off and offered to fix it for her. She readily agreed, because that way she could hang it on the wall.

Sidebar: This has been in her family before she was born.

Then I went to Lowe's for some chain saw oil. I drove through a small part of Hines Park on the way back to work (most of it was closed due to flooding).

The temperature had reached over 70 degrees midday, but started falling all afternoon. It was only 60 degrees when I was on the way home. I left my leather jacket in the truck at lunch and regretted it going home.

I had to stop and pick up my prescriptions before going home. So, I ran into the Chinese takeout next store and asked for a quart of chicken fried rice first.

My doctor wasn't kidding. Refilling all of them at once cost me $115.58 cents, with the majority going to the new drug. I went next door and grabbed my fried rice.

Back home, I got in the mail and the trashcan. I noticed that my front lawn was freshly cut and thought, "Oh no!!!" My back yard is a muddy mess and includes the lake. So, the heavy mower would tear the lawn up. But, they had checked and didn't cut the back lawn at all (they did leave the fake chain off the gate, though). Whew!

Back inside, I treated the cat and changed clothes. I took care of some business and then watched the news.

When it was over at 7:00 p.m., I got the fried rice out of the microwave (where I stashed it when arriving at home) and put half of it in a bowl. It was still warm, but not hot. So, I zapped it in the microwave for a minute. I added some soy sauce and ate it watching Wheel of Fortune.

I watched Jeopardy and then a rerun of NCIS. I shut off the TV then and went to bed at 9:00 p.m.
