I was in big need of a good thunderstorm the other day
And I got it
Mother Nature and I are back to being friends
Boyfriend said that's the first "real" thunderstorm he's experienced since he moved to Utah...which made me think that's probably why I needed a good one because he has been up here for quite a while and that is far too long to go without in my oh so humble opinion
In other news, my car sold!! Woot!! :)
I posted it Sunday night, got a response from a guy, contacted him on Monday, and it was gone by Tuesday!! Just proves to me that prayers are answered
The nicest thing about it? I didn't get it for the asking price, but it was only $400 less and it was enough to finish paying it off and have a little bit left over to start saving for the next one
It was really sad to see it leave the parking lot, but I was too excited to be completely debt free to mourn too much
So now I have to figure out a way to celebrate
Boyfriend and I are going to get steak soon, but I need something else...
Maybe some shoe shopping...
In other other news, Happy Late 4th of July!!
In church on Sunday we were singing "America the Beautiful" and for some reason the words really hit me this year...I had a really hard time getting through the song
I don't think I've ever been emotional over this holiday before...don't get me wrong, I love my country and am very grateful for it, but it's never reduced me to tears
I also decided this year I was going to celebrate in a....different, new, fun, insert chosen word here, way
So I made these:
(please excuse the fuzziness...I didn't want to go all the way downstairs to get my real camera)
:D I saw a similar idea on another blog and thought "Self, why not take it a step further??"
My dad and sister thought I was crazy, but I had fun :)
And then I did this:
Even more people thought I was crazy with this
And even though it took a big chunk of my day to do, it was still fun
Go me for being patriotic!! ;)
Anyway, I must go back to work
I chose to write a post today instead of read posts, I figured it was time for another one :)
Now I must go in search of some rain...maybe it will help wake me up after my body refused to have a restful sleep last night
And maybe if I'm lucky, I'll find a pretty picture to take
Maybe of raindrops on roses :)
Have a wonderful rest of the day!!
