Nubilous is defined as cloudy or foggy.  I often hear our weather man talking about nubilous clouds.

Last spring while out doing some errands, this storm passed through the city. I thought the clouds were unique so I grabbed my phone.

Nubilous comes from the Latin root word nub which means cloud.

I did make my shopping quick, never know what these nubilous clouds will turn into here in Kansas.

This town is is going nuts over their Kansas City ROYALS.  Playing in the ALCS (American League Championship Series)  Playoffs has been crazy fun.  We have won the last 6 games in overtime!!!!

Our Saturday game just ended and we WON this one too. We are ahead in the series 2 games to 0. The series comes to Kansas City on Monday night for game 3. I have friends who have tickets--lucky them.

Here's some of the great images I have found.

Kansas City is also the city of fountains and here's one of them with blue water!!

The last time we were in the playoffs was 1985 when we won the World Series. This is so appropriate.

This is how I'm feeling today!!

Marked Tree

ABC WEDNESDAY is the place to be to share your weekly letters. Today is letter M and I have a share from our vacation trip this summer.

While driving to New Orleans we passed through MARKED TREE, Arkansas.  The name was so intriguing to me and I had to do some research.

Marked Tree is in the southern end of the New Madrid Fault.  The city got its name from an oak  tree located on the bank of the Francis River.

Osage and Cherokee Indians roamed the woods and enjoyed fishing in the two rivers.  MARKED TREE is also noted for having two rivers a quarter of a mile apart but both flow in opposite directions.

The Indians slashed the oak tree to mark a crossing point on land to avoid paddling 12 miles upstream to reach the other bank.  The tree stood until 1890 when undermining caused the tree to fall into the river.  While digging in 1970 for a new bridge a large well preserved oak was unearthed. The workers brought the trunk back to the town and it is displayed with a historical marker.

Unlike many cities MARKED TREE is the only city with this name in the world.

Today was my first trip to the new IKEA here in Kansas City. I'ts been open for one month but I have waited to avoid all the lines until today. My grandchildren were out of school today so we made a fun girls trip. Had lunch in the restaurant there too.

The store is about 1 mile from my home--so close. Christmas season will sure be busy I'm sure.!!!!

The restaurant is nice and big, reasonable prices, I had salmon with croquettes and lemon sauce.
The girls had Swedish Meatballs and Chicken Fingers.

I saw a rug for my sewing room in their catalog but wanted to see it in person. I decided that I really wanted to buy it.

My Button Rug

I'll be leaving my shoes at the door!!
