In the past three days I have used this word more often than I would have liked. I had been under this or under that, and it wasn’t until this morning I realized exactly how much underage I had achieved.
When I left you Friday I had no intention of completing the “under” list. It was not even on my radar but it seems great progress has been made. Will you let me toot my own horn and show you what got checked off my “Under” list?
“Underage” list checked items:
Under pressure: Single living had come to an end. Cleaning was in order before Ms. Twister returned with her “Big” bag. (I call it a trunk)
Under fed: All the cleaning made me hungry, time to eat.
Under a watch: Yes, a tornado watch and once more the Close Encounter theme.
Under a Warning: A tornado had been spotted on the outskirts of town.
Under advisement: “Granny, you need to go downstairs early, there is a tornado coming.” “Well, I’ll take that under advisement.”
Under Ground: To the dirty, cobweb filled basement.
Under the Stairs: With 187 pounds of canine. This is where I fell in love with the new smarter-than-I cell phone. Television was out but now I could get radar on my phone.
Under estimated: The power of prayer. The tornado hit to the west and east of us but lifted and passed us by. Thank you Lord.
Under cover: Way too much excitement and I went to bed.
Now repeat from watch to cover several more times and you have my weekend. There has been so much rain; rocks are floating in my yard. Not to mention the cute life jackets I saw the squirrels donning. Where do squirrels shop?
PS I want to acknowledge all the beautiful compliments left Friday. Thank you again my lovely peeps, you sure know how to send sunshine when it is needed. And for one special follower…
