Happy Wednesday, everyone! It is time for Today’s News for Women Over 50!
This is the day I curate together headlines from around the web and produce a weekly lifestyle newsletter just for you!
But, since this is a celebration week, I want to start with something a tad different and fun!
So, grab your morning beverage…a cozy spot…and let’s get going with the news!
TODAY’S NEWS: OLD WIVES TALES
The big news in Texas this summer has been the excessive heat.
Don’t tell me this is worse than other years…I am born and raised here and every so often we have summers that are insanely hot.
So far, this is the third on record, but may likely move up….many many days of triple digits in a row.
These summers also result in drought.
There is an old wives tale that when the sage bushes bloom out here in full purple glory that rain is soon behind.
Sage began to bloom recently on a clear blue day with a heat index of 111.
Mr. B looked at me and said, “Sorry, I am a skeptic.”
But as I drove around our part of town, the blooms were everywhere…heavy and bright.
So, it is no surprise that later that afternoon, the clouds began to gather!
In fact, over several days we experienced off and on rain (about 2 inches at our house!)…it is gone now…but we have our eyes and hope with the sage!
Old wives tale? or facts of nature?
