Ain’t no sun up in the sky…stormy weather!

I guess if you’re not old enough to remember the vintage blues song the title of today’s blog comes from, you’ll either think I’m crazy, have very bad grammar, or both.  According to the little icon on the front of my iPhone, the sun will return on Friday.  I have missed it sorely, but I’m doing my best to appreciate rain and cloudy skies.  :)

If any of you live in the Reno area, or will be passing through, I’ll be doing a book signing and a meet-and-greet at Harrah’s on June 23, from 2:00 to 5:00pm.  Would love to see you there if you can make it.  My visit is part of the celebration for the big rodeo. 

Working today–yesterday I planned on it, but discovered in no uncertain terms that I needed a mental health day.  :)  So I played with art stuff and read memoirs–too much stuff about Dysfunction Junction lately, though, so I’m switching to some upbeat stuff for a while.

Gearing up for CREATE next week, and I can hardly wait.  I’m planning to tweet a lot, blog at least once a day, and have a great time.  Wendy will be there, along with Jeremy, which makes it all about a thousand percent more wonderful than it already is.  I’m bringing a swim suit, but I probably won’t have the nerve to wear it.  :)  We’ll see.

Bernice and I continue our twice-daily barn visits.  I keep waiting for her to get tired of it, but she never does. 

That’s the news from my kitchen table for today, friends.  May God bless you and yours.

    HI, Linda. I only know that song because of hearing it in old movies and I think my Mom used to sing it while housecleaning. It’s a wonderful classic. One comment: You must wear your swimsuit if you have a chance to swim! Be proud of who you are, girl! And have fun of course! Hilda

    Speaking of stormy weather did you happen to hear of the wedding ceremony in Harper County, Kansas last Saturday? As this sweet couple are exchanging vows at the family farm, there are two tornados in the distance. This couple just reminded me of the wonderful stories you write. The article states that they are both a part of the rodeo community as he is a bull rider and she is a barrel racer. Great video of the ceremony on the internet. Thanks for all your great books.

      I only heard a short blurb as I was passing the tv! So that’s what it was all about. Exciting but scary experience!

    Now I’ll be humming that song all day!! :)

    So sorry clouds and rain cause you such downers, Linda. But I understand it. My husband would move to AZ in a heartbeat but I would wither away in the heat. I’m a true “sandals and socks” gal…sans the socks. Will be spending ten days in “Parable” country in July. Not looking forward to it! :-|

    Just finished reading At Home In Stone Creek…for the second time. You probably didn’t mean it to be a tear jerker but, for me, it is. :cry: Great story!

    Stay happy…and dry. :)

    Hi Linda, I have a friend who lives in NV and has to go to Reno for BIG shopping, but…that isn’t helping me any. :-|

    What is CREATE?

    I’m new to this and I’m wondering what the story is about Bernice and the barn??????

    Just look at the rain as tiny slivers of silver falling from the sky to make your life shine. Or, since you seem to already have a good life, just look at it as silver gilding.

    I remember that songs because of old movies. It was sung by Lena Horne. I really enjoy your book and am looking forward to the new one. Keep them coming. Happy days with Bernice.
