Morning Meanderings… yet another Storm WARNING hits Minnesota (this time with lawn furniture casualties…)
Excuse while I go grab coffee cup…. I am going to need the caffeine today.
Some people leave a trail of crumbs… I have of late, left a trail of grumbles regarding our rain. I have grumbled on both Twitter and Facebook… and yeah, I have grumbled here. I know some of you mentioned you would love to have the remain where you are at as your weather is warm and dry….
well I am talking EXTREME rain. AT least every day this past 7 days, and pretty much 3-4 days a week all spring it had rained. And not pretty watch my flowers grow rain… no it is EXTREME “batten down the hatches she’s gonna blow” rain!
Last night the wind picked up so strongly it blew my framed pictures off the coffee table next to the open window. Al (hubby) and I thought we heard an animal cry and I went and opened our garage overhead door (much to hubby’s amusement) so the poor thing could seek refuge if needed.
This morning I woke up and it is still raining and we are supposed to get hit with another round of storms this morning. I understand that when we have had extreme heat, but we have not.
I took a quick walk around my squishy wet back yard this morning to see how things fared. I had put the deck furniture away a couple of days ago so that is all fine but my yard swing did not fare so well…
This swing has been with me for 20+ years. I know he was old, but he carried a lot of memories. This is the swing I sat on when I got the news about my moms accident. It is the one I rocked the boys on when they were young and the one I sat with one of my good friends was offered a promotion she was excited – and scared to take. It has moved with us twice and sat in the yard since we moved here in 1996.
The rest of the yard was fine. At least for this storm. My hostas are extremely well watered. Swimmingly even.
Now I need to get ready for work. I am hoping this mornings storm blows by quickly and I can back to outdoor things I love like biking…rollerblading… sitting on my deck with a good book.
Share with me your stories of sunshine… I miss it
