For some it is the washing, and others it is the yard that has grown a foot, or if hubby was at home while you were gone...there may be a lot of dirty dishes. For me it is this thing! It's an old scale that I bought in an antique store in Winnett, Montana. It's definitely not a digital model, and I'm not sure it weighs accurately, but it does weigh consistently. My eyes have not seen a set of scales in three weeks, and I dread getting the verdict. I haven't got on them yet (going to let my body get used to the new climate). I will let you know in a few days exactly how good my trip to Illinois really was!
We have had rain here in the Permian Basin, and there was actually green grass in some of the pastures. When I left the only thing green was the cactus and mesquites. The cactus on top of my porch looked like it had grown, and the stray female cat that my neighbor and I have adopted is about ready to have kittens. Anyone one want a kitten? I think it was about 103 when I got home Wednesday afternoon. It is definitely summer in West Texas.
