Thank the LORD!!! Folks...it is raining here...right this very minute!!! I know it seems as though I am a tad "crazy" and hey! some say I am...but I just had to give a "shout out" and thank the Lord we are getting some much needed rain here in my neck of the woods!
We have had quite a shortage of the wet stuff for a while now...I'm not sure if we are having drought conditions...especially compared to a couple of summers ago. BUT, I do know this...my grass has been "wheezing" from lack of rain for the past few weeks. I've literally had to water every other day...sometimes hand water once a day. With a water ban that only allows you to water from 6:00 p.m to 10:00 a.m. and with all the "experts" saying it's not always good to water late at night, especially with our heat and humidity...it seems it MAY cause fungus to grow in your grass. So, I have to really stay on top of things to get my landscaped acre of land all done in the time allotted...forget about the other acre that is just a dry field right not!! Now, I'm not complaining...because I know some areas are REALLY suffering from lack of rain...and some areas are getting too much! I just wanted to let the world know (all 3 or 4 of you that actually read my blog)...I'm thrilled that it is raining...that the temperature has dropped literally from 97 to 73 in about an hours time...AND that it is raining later in the day...so the heat and humidity won't ruin my hair until tomorrow afternoon (yes, I always have my priorities straight...lol)...WHEW...good to know!!!And my grass is happy...my plants are literally sighing in relief...and I'm just pleased as punch that it has lasted for more than an hour!
I suppose some of you consider it a slow blog day around here...but hey...anytime it rains...I'm thrilled...it is one of my fave things...especially when I'm snuggled up in the safety of my home...book or magazine in hand...and a tall cool drink nearby...so I just wanted to share!
So thank you God, thank you to whatever cool front or weather related blessing that brought you to us...so, rain...lets try not to be so "shy" about coming around more often...ok???
