So, I did not want to walk today but I did. It was overcast and the street was wet, but there was no rain. Well, until I looked out the window right before I was leaving the house. Guess what? RAIN! AH! I was not pleased, but I went ahead and got myself together and went. It had stopped raining. Yay! I walked most of the walk before it began raining. It only rained on me about the last mile so that wasn't too bad. It was sort of muggy and gross, but I made it home! I didn't feel like doing my workouts right then even though it's stretch day, so I sat and relaxed for a bit.
My friend texted and asked if I wanted to ride with him a few places and we'd eat. I said that sounded great as I was not in the mood to fix lunch! He picked me up and we ate at a local restaurant that we haven't eaten at in a while. They had hash brown casserole. YAY! We ate and then went to the Goodwill. I found a pair of shorts, a pretty sweater type shirt (brand new with the tags still on it!), a cute coffee mug with a fox on it and some sheet protectors. My friend was nice and bought my stuff. Oh and I had seen a Domo-kun t-shirt that I liked and he bought it for me too! Yay! We left there and went to the other Goodwill in our city. I only found one item there.. It's a lanyard that is made of recycled soda bottles and it's got Coca Cola on it. I love Coke things and I love recycled things and it was only fifty cents. :D
After we left there, we headed home and he dropped me off. I came in and put my things away. I did a few things I needed to do around here. I just finished my workouts a few minutes ago and my French lesson. OH! I forgot one thing. At the first Goodwill, I found a French learning book. That was pretty cool and I thought it would be a nice addition to my growing French learning!
While we were on Riverside Drive at the restaurant, my friend said one of his friends posted a picture of part of Riverside under water. As we were checking out, the guy at the register said that part of Riverside was closed due to flooding. I looked later and they had to actually bring a flat bed truck in at one spot to rescue the people in one of the businesses from the flash flooding. Wow! I heard it's all gone down now, but I bet the Riverwalk trail is under water in some parts.
The trail we go to in Martinsville flooded some too. I saw a picture of one of the areas we have parked at to go on the trail completely under water. Yikes! It is supposed to rain here tomorrow, but I don't think it's supposed to be as heavy as it was today. I hope it holds off until after I walk. I was quite happy today that none of the really heavy rain came until after I got home!
I feel bad for the people who go to the Festival in the Park. We have it every year in May. It started today and runs through Sunday. Hopefully the people will get a respite from the rain before it's over. Oh! One other thing, the beach trip is NOT I repeat NOT cancelled. ^________________________^ Things worked out and we are going. YAY!!!! Of course, I'll carry the Macbook with me and post everyday! I hope to create another photo album after this trip.
