What a sight! There's more grass inside our house this morning than outside with me tracking it in and out while watering flowers.
Sort of funny as those dahlias weren't expecting more water on them this morning but you guessed it the rain came down hard for a few minutes totaling two-tenths. It's not "The Beat Goes On," it's the pattern of rain around here that keeps going on and on. The air has cooled up some so I'll be back outside working again or siting on our patio watching those heavy raindrops falling again. Hope I don't get caught out in a downpour of rain as then I would have "Raindrops Falling On My Head." (I think that was a song.)
Maybe I'm into those classic rock 'n' roll songs they have been showcasing on the PBS station. My television, for some reason, gets louder and louder when I'm listing to that great music that I love. Neighbors haven't called to complain, so I'm assuming they might like it too. Those songs bring back some beautiful memories of bygone days. Some of you know exactly what I'm talking about and you feel the same as I do. Love that son by Percy Sledge, "When A Man Loves a Woman." He passed away not too long ago. Oh, but his songs and other songs by countless others will live on. I'm so glad they were able to record so many groups performing thair hits taking us back to a time when we were a whole bunch younger and living life to its fullest.
Cousin Ruth/ the boss is doing super good. Also, Peggy/the diva is still dressing like "she came out of a band box." That means she was dressed to the hilt from head to toe and looking good. My sweet little "Mom" would say that to me at times even when I looked quite the opposite. Aren't our mom's love for us so enduring?
That rain is back again for a second round. Can't see the mountain behind our house so you know it's coming down pretty good. Rack up another four-tenths to the two-tenths we got this morning. Now I'm thinking my day is a wash-out. Still thundering back in the east, but - hey - the sun has popped out again and shining brightly. Getting caught outside in a sudden downpour could be the death of me. No need to test my fate because I'm a patient girl whose weeds can wait a little bit longer. Cannot believe it, rain has caught me a third time stopping my project. How lucky can I get?
Thought I saw a deer at the foot of the mountain earlier. I'm gonna be watching as they might be more of them in the open field.
Neighbor's pigs are back to my dismay. I thought I could stop keeping a lookout for those porkers, but its back to square one. Maybe its gonna be a really harsh winter and this is an omen from above that one of those porkers might drop dead from the heat?
Please keep on your prayer list: Edith Miller, Carlon and Mai Nell Melton, Denise Stanton and Charlie Mai Daniel.
