“Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one’s voice.”
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Gosh, where is time going? It’s already September. I’m stumped today about what to say. I can say that I am grateful for all of the above.
My post yesterday was late in the day and I think I covered most of my thoughts. We DID have box springs delivered before 8:30 AM yesterday from Krisay’s for some guests arriving in the next few weeks, so the day got off to a busy start. I’m grateful that they came yesterday and not today with this rain. It went so smoothly.
Looks like it may go on like this all day. You can’t see the entire shot of the screen below, but it says about 3 inches of rain is expected and that rain will continue all day. That’s a lot of rain.
I made it to hooping last night and as usual, Dawn was energetic and smiling. She’s a real Godsend. It was a packed house! I’m glad for her when there are a lot of students. It’s such a great class and she makes it a point to know all of her students whether she knew them before or is meeting them for the first time. She has a real gift.
The rain is picking up again and is coming down harder. Is this all from Ida? When it stops, it will make weeding a lot easier. I did a little yesterday and regret saying to myself that we need a little rain to loosen up the soil in some spots. Jay and I are both looking for one-piece rain suits to wear outside when working in this type of weather.
So I hope you stay dry and remember that we are so blessed to have no water problems. We don’t have wildfires and rarely droughts. The quality of our water is so good in this region. God has granted our area natural amenities that other areas lack even though they seem so glamorous and trendy! We’ve got what we need and then some in the water department.
My little RoadBug wheel is still recovering from our outing on Sunday. It was a bit humid for her. It would have been the perfect day for my pvc pipe Babe, but I have to figure out how to replace a foot. Here’s the RoadBug. I just had this little bird fly into the window.
Either message I need. He looks ok now and is sitting up and catching his breath out of the rain.
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
