THREE TUESDAYS IN ONE

I feel as if I lived three Tuesdays instead of just one.  The day began with Tuesday Ladies' Bible Study.  We began Daniel chapter 10.  About four more weeks in Daniel.  It's been quite a study and I think we all learned so much!

After I took Debbie home, I got myself ready for work.  I was there for four hours and it was a mad house.  I don't know why so many of the kids that come in have to be so loud and destructive.  I got a lot done, spent two hours on the front desk, and then left to go to my doctor's appointment.

My appointment was for 4:15 p.m. and I got to see her at 5:30 p.m.  I told her how I had fallen and how badly my foot and ankle were hurting.  She asked me a lot of questions, examined me, and said until she saw x-rays she couldn't be certain but she thought that most likely my foot was broken.  She gave me a script to go get the x-rays right away.  But....

A bad storm had been predicted.  I thought I could get to the hospital and back before it hit.  I was telling Joe what the doctor said and suddenly it got dark.  We heard the wind start blowing.  Hard!  Joe said he had done a load of wash of sheets and pillowcases and it was on the line out back.  I went out to start taking them down before the storm hit while he went to get dressed to go outside.

I wish someone had taken a video of me trying to get the wash off of the line.  The sheets were whipping around like sails on a boat and as I took one down the wind grabbed hold of it and blew it (and me) across the yard.  Joe had a plastic bag out there and I was stuffing them into it without even folding them up.  As I'm taking them down there is a clap of thunder.  Then a few rain drops.  Then more and more until it was pouring!  And the wind was whipping around.  It was so hard I couldn't even see.  The thunder is sounding and the lightning is flashing and I'm still trying to get things down.  One of the pillowcases takes off and blows into my neighbor's yard.  I figure I'll get it later.  It's in a corner by her back door and isn't going anywhere.  Joe finally gets there to help me and we get inside where I drip water onto the floor.  Yuck!  What makes it worse is the sheets were dry and now I have to hang them in the celler to dry all over again.

Here is another video from my brother's blog Exploration Photography.
  Hope you enjoy it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOwhVIJxZBg&feature=youtu.be

When the storm is over I looked outside and there is destruction everywhere.  Our yard and my neighbor's are thrown all around.



Even my fairies got blown over.


When I went to get my pillowcase from my neighbor's back step I saw that part of her fence was broken and part of her back door was stripped off and laying on the step with my pillowcase.

But when I looked up the sky was beautiful.


By now my foot is killing me so we call out for dinner.  We got burgers, fries, and onion rings from our local pizza place.  Joe went out to the kitchen to get us some iced tea and calls for me to get my camera and come quickly.  I grabbed my camera and hobbled out there to see this view.



The pictures do not do it justice.  It was glowing golden.  Imagine the entire sky like this.  It reminded me of how I think heaven will look.  I have never seen anything like this.

I have been awake for about two hours now with the pain in my foot.  But it is settling down so I am going to try to go back to sleep.  I want to get some rest because after the x-rays I am taking the car in to have the air conditioner fixed.  I just can't drive around in this heat anymore.  So I'll be back and let you know what's happening.  Until later....

  1. What a storm! I saw lightening BOLTS out my front door,the rain so heavy I couldn't see across the street! Russ was on the bus on his way home & even in the city he saw trees down. Glad Joe had you get your camera. Lovely photos of the sky. So awesome!
    Praying the x-rays & appointment go well today.

    1. Glad Russ got home safely. That must have been scary to be on a bus while all of that was going on.

  2. I have NEVER seen a sky like that in my life! It is just amazing. I can just picture you out there with those sheets whipping around you,. you hobbling around with a bad foot, and the rain pouring down. You poor thing! Hope your x-rays don't show anything broken-hopefully, it is just muscles or badly bruised. Glad you are getting your AC fixed. It is miserable when it is hot and you don't have it. xo Diana

    1. I never saw a sky like that either. Our weatherman put a whole explanation on facebook about what they were and how they were formed. Yes, I must have been a funny sight running around the yard in the rain to get the clothes down. Thanks for good wishes on my foot. I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

  3. WOW, that was some storm. It is scary to me when that happens, the lightning and thunder are terrible. I sure hope you can get your foot x-ray'd and find out what is wrong with your foot, so that you can get it fixed and the pain will go away. I dont know how you got those clothes off the line with your foot in the shape it is in. The photos of the sky are amazing. I have never seen it like that. Keep us posted on the outcome of the x-ray.

  4. Kathy, It does seem to that you are going thru a tough time. I hope and pray your foot isn't broken...but sometimes a break doesn't hurt as badly as a sprain. Take care, get your foot up when you can. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. You are right, Susie. Many times a sprain is much more painful than a break. I just want to kno what it is so I know how to treat it. Yes, ma'am. Putting my feet up.

  5. Bless your heart! What a time you've had! Love your attitude, though! You always stop to see the hand of God in all you do! Perhaps that golden sky was just because of YOU!
    You should already be getting the X-ray as I write. Love and prayers from Texas!

    1. Most of the time it's easy to see Go's hand in everything. Sometimes though... But we know it's always there. Thank you so much for your prayers. They mean so much.

  6. my advice, next time leave the linens on the line to God and stay inside. And on a broken foot, too!

  10. Wow, Kathy, you got hit over there. We had rumbles of thunder, a bit of wind and a bit of rain. Parts of NJ had 80 mph winds and lots of damage and power outages. Sorry to hear about your foot. Have to go back to older posts to see what happened. I stopped going to one dr. because of her inept and nasty staff.

    1. Isn't that a shame? We find great doctors, but their staff ruin the office.
