Thankful For Some Rain

June 28, 2018

Good morning.  Have you ever noticed how beautiful the rain can be?  Well I have to say that today it is just that.  Beautiful!  We haven't had much rain here, and today the lawns and plants are really thirsty.  Today they are getting a good soaking. 

Temps today will be in the low to mid seventies, but oh my, the forecast for the next five days calls for temps in the nineties every day, with night temps in the mid to high sixties.  Oh my, we are ever so thankful for today's rain. 

Well, yesterday turned out to be quite busy.  In the morning, Deanne had an appointment with her eye doctor.  This was a routine check, and the good news is that her eyesight is great.  However, all the appointments were running very late, so we were there for quite a while.  I brought a puzzle book with me so the time went by quick enough.

On the way home, I stopped by a Dollar General store, and picked up a few small things.  Next stop was at WalMart to pick up some totes to use while cleaning out the back room. While I was there, I picked up a few groceries and a case of spring water.  Joe said he would pick me up some more water later this week. 

Today I have some photos of the beautiful flowers that we saw at Plymouth Harbor.  If you're ever in the area, you really should stop by the Harbor because it is quite beautiful.  Each photo is followed by a close up.

My goodness, as I look out my door, I see that the rain is really pouring down quite hard.  It's also quite a bit dark out there.  Sort of like dusk.  Every so often, the rain let's up just a bit for a while, then it starts pouring hard again.  Hmmm, I see lots of big puddles in our future.  I tried to take a little video of Joe's parking spot.  It's becoming a small pond.

Now I think I will do a bit of blog reading before starting to clean out the backroom.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

We're not having very much rain. It did rain last week (earlier in the week) and my grass finally came back alive. Hopefully we get some next week. It is suppose to rain through the 4th of July starting Sunday. Sometimes it doesn't happen in certain places. (lol) You do have cool nights. Our nights are hot. It is already 92 degrees here. Our water bills here in the unincorporated area is very high. I think they are lying and I've been on them since November. When I was in the hospital for 2 1/2 months my water bill was 52.00 for each of those months. You go figure. No one was using the water. They are having a meeting on July 10 and I will be there. It's bad when your water bill is higher than your light bill. I might have to file a complaint with the Texas attorney general. Families of 5 is paying less for water than I am and I am in the bed sleep 80% of the time. Not going to write a book today. (lol) Have a great one

The flowers look lovely. We've been having rain a lot this month, so everything is pretty green in Minnesota.

Wish you could send some of the rain to Texas. We are burning up and no relief in sight. Was 102 today. I enjoy all flowers and these are gorgeous.
