Looks Like The Rain May Be Almost Over.

May 15, 2017

Good morning.  Yup, it's still raining, just lightly now.  The weatherman  says it should end by mid day.  Awesome!  Temps will be warming up, and we'll even have one or two hot days this week.  I think I can handle that.

I had a really nice Mother's Day, and I hope all you ladies did too.  Today I'll take some photos of my beautiful new flowers and plants.  Yesterday was also the last performance of "Sister Act, the Musical."  I've heard from everyone how awesome it was.  This morning I posted a short clip of the finale on Facebook. {If you'd like to see it, my page is Franny Loud}

With all the rain we've been having, you know I've been busy on the porch taking photos (with my phone) of the raindrops on my flowers.  Sounds silly maybe, but I think those sparkly drops of rain are really beautiful. 

First, here's a photo of my pansy plant before the rains came.


Now comes the rain, and all the blossoms are weighted down with sparkly beads of water.





After dark last night, I went out to take a couple photos of the raindrops, just to see how they would come out.  I just used the flash on my phone. 


I guess this is just one way to make the rain a fun thing.  If I could go out and splash in puddles, I would.  Unfortunately, the neighbors would think I was crazy and probably call the cops on me.  They have no sense of humor. 

I can remember from when I was a little girl (during WW II) when lots of us little kids would go out in the summer rain with a bar of soap and get all washed up.  We thought it was fun and had ourselves a grand time.

Today I think I'll start working on my new blog book.  All downloads through the end of April will be expired.  Now I just have to pick out a couple photos for the front and back covers. 

It's also "cranky call day" again.  It seems that the newspaper carrier is having problems getting my daughter Deanne's papers to her.  If I call to complain, she will get a paper, then nothing again.  It used to be that we could call directly to the distribution office when papers were not delivered.  But now things have changed (progress, I guess) and you cannot call there anymore.  Instead, you leave your complaint with whoever answers the phone, and hope for a call back from distribution and a solution to the problem. 

Ah well, now it's time to wash the dishes and think about what's for lunch.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Edna,
So loved seeing the flowers with the rain drops. They are so beautiful and no two are ever alike, although I did read where they (some scientific study) found that they discovered 2 identical snowflakes. I wonder how much money that cost. Geeze can't they just love the wonder of it?
No rain for us yet but supposed to get some really severe storms in the next few days. I don't know what is going on with our phones. None of my calls dropped after we hung up. Must be something between your house and mine.

Just downloaded the recipe pages and they are beautiful and just what I have wanted. Thank you very much. Good luck to your new book. I know that you will be pleased.
Ok going to read the final blog and head to bed... Love Beth

Lovely pictures of the pansies with waterdropes.
and yes, as kid I liked sometimes to jump into poodles of rain.
Oh Edna, we have to keep up with progress, but not all progress is an improvement. Well, at least i think so.
Yesterday we had a beautiful warm day and today it is even warmer, but that will change again and by tomorrow temsp will fall from 23/25C to 16-17 again and then it seems to improve again coming weekend.
I'll find you again on next post, okay?
Hug
Kyra
