It has been very hot and humid. Not surprising for this time of year! And while it isn't the weather that I prefer, I suppose acceptance is my only alternative at point!
However this is putting a strain on all of my plants, flowers and water bill! I usually water in the evening as lately it seems to take me so long to get moving in the mornings.
But since my new tenant "Mr. Toad" has moved into my yard, I have taken to sprinkling water over his area in the mornings as that is when he seems to like to show himself ! I do believe he likes the water and the company. Although this may just be my over active imagination at work again!
Can you see him blending in with the rocks?
Maybe this will help...
Our ground has been so dry, I've been praying for rain. Not only for the plants and crops but in hopes that the temperatures and humidity might drop a bit as well.
This afternoon I had to go to church to meet with our accountant. I am the church secretary and most of my job consists of data entry.
The problem lies when I make a mistake, which isn't too often, in the data that I enter! You must know that I despise working with numbers and I also do quite a bit of bookkeeping as well!
Despite this fact I have been the secretary there for nearly seven years now, and I really do love my job. That makes no sense what so ever but truth is stranger than fiction!
While waiting for our accountant to arrive I went outside. That's when I saw it. The huge black cloud just east of where I was standing.
Could it be? Dare I hope?
I was feeling excited now as I walked back inside of the church.
Our accountant, just as I knew she would, found my mistake fairly quickly. I felt the fool as I thanked her profusely, and we both went on our separate ways. Now if I can only remember everything she told me!
As I was on my way home, the cloud followed me.
Oh come on! Just rain already!
When I got into the house my one little dog Roxy was shaking and panting.
And then lightening! And then thunder and lightening!
Oh please let it rain, I was just too tired to wrestle with the giant, super industrial strength hose that my husband picked out so that it would last a lifetime!
Now it's getting very dark. The wind is blowing, the thunder is clapping and the lightening is lighting the darkness of the storm to come,
Then I heard it!
Pit, pat! Pit pat. Pit pa..
And that was it. I'd say there was a good twenty or so drops.
It's been very hot and humid. Not surprising for this time of year!
