"Space Cowboys"

First Saturday started out sunny.....I had plans to be outside, maybe take a bike ride, spend time working on my mountain bike for our trip to Mammoth in a few days, and other things, but by 10 am all those ideas seemed pretty foolish when the rain came with a vengeance.  

Torrential rain, then hail!

Once again it is hard to forecast the weather here in SLT.....the rain that came Sunday was expected, but it was supposed to be a sunny day on Monday....instead it rain all the rest of the day, and into the night.

So, in light of the rain, our plans changed.....at least my plans changed.  TLE had planned to do some mending, so I brought in her sewing machine.  Once the rain began I headed back inside to wait out what I thought, at the time, was just a small storm passing through.  TLE was watching a movie called "Space Cowboys" starring Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner.  I had heard of it, but never saw it while it was in the theaters, so I sat down to see what it was about.  Before I knew it 2 hours had gone by, and it was Noon time......and still raining......in fact it was hailing!

We spent the rest of the day reading, and occasionally commenting on the rain and hail.....it had a sort of rhythm to it......sometimes very hard, and sometimes very light, but ever present.  As you might expect, there were a couple of naps in the mix during the afternoon.

Around 6 TLE re-heated some spaghetti from the other night (even better the second time around) for dinner, after which we continued reading until 8 when we turned on the TV to watch "Masterchef", and then "Hotel Hell", both Gordon Ramsey productions.  Since Tuesday is TLE's early day (she opens with Debby) we both headed off to slumberland around 10 pm.

Thanks for stopping by!
