The Wind Doth Blow

I was in Ellensburg all day to a Washington State Horsemen state board meeting. A good meeting. I enjoy that group. A friend from the board found she had stage four ovarian cancer and had surgery. To top it off she had a cardiac arrest when she was getting ready to come home. She is home now but not in good shape. Patty is a fine lady. Please pray for her or at least send good thoughts her way.

On the way home the wind started to blow and boy oh boy did it blow. The tumble weeds were very frequent and when I got up out of the Vantage Canyon there was dust. A lot of dust 20 mph at times. I thought when I got to Moses Lake that if it was still blowing that hard at the next rest area I was going to stop and sit it out but amazingly when I got through Moses Lake, the wind died down and I just came on home. It is getting here now and the little dogs think something is attacking. I am so glad the horses are shut in the barn and I am home.

How do you get a husband to do what he is supposed to. He says his back hurts since he built fence today and moved panels around. I am so upset with him. He is supposed to be resting his back and his leg. I told him my feeling bad about him hurting was running out when he did stupid things like that. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Maybe by tomorrow I will get the printer/scanner working again. I will have to crawl under the computer desk and unplug it and replug it it. I just am too tuckered this evening to do it. I am about to crawl in bed and watch the Gonzaga basketball game. Love those boys. Love WSU too, that is my alum but they don't play like the Gonzaga boys. You probably don't care about that.

Hope your Saturday was just fine and dandy. Blessings.


  1. The news said that over in the Ritzville area it was blowing 50 mph with 60 mph gusts. That is a powerful wind!! Here on the West Plains, they said 40 mph with 50 mph gusts. We had drama at our house because our horses weren't locked in. I didn't know it was coming.

  2. You know, Lea, it's hard to keep a good man down. But, they say rope helps!

    Sorry about those winds. We get them here too. They bring down large tree branches and even blow over trash bins (that are full!). We have to stay inside. Just crazy! Glad they disappeared and you made it through okay. Scary, I know...
