The past two days have been totally weird……………what’s that mean? Well, at almost PRECISELY 3:17PM it has begun thundering LOUDLY – then five minutes later a MAJOR downpour, then it stops, the sun comes out, then five minutes later a dark cloud comes out of NOWHERE and we start all over again………………after an hour of being silly (!!) it settles into a nice, lawn-drenching rain for a couple of hours then STOPS. So that’s not all that weird really but we think it’s just a LITTLE weird that it’s the same exact time and same exact pattern. So there…….if I think it’s WEIRD than I guess it’s WEIRD! HAHAHA
One GOOD thing about the rain is that all this stuff Mom has been planting around the yard gets watered FREE of charge to our water bill. That’s a GOOD thing. Another GOOD thing is that along with the rain has come some pretty stiff wind – and why is that good? Because all the seed pods/pollen pods, miscellaneous pollen from the oak trees and other “litterers” of the yard wind up having all that junk blown out of their branches and it flies through the air like it’s snowing a blizzard and lands on the grass………so instead of DAYS and DAYS of pollen falling, we get rid of it quicker in the wind! Cool huh? Mom and Dad don’t have allergies to pollen thank heavens – nor do I – but even if you’re not allergic, there’s so much junk flying around it makes you sneeze anyway!
Shall I quit griping about the weather? OK…….will do. Besides, I think I said it all.
I’m working on my blogaversary party and I do hope all of you will at least be able to stop by my blog on Sunday even though some of us are ALSO celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday. It’s no big deal kind of party – just some food, drinks, and thank yous – my way of thanking YOU all for being my friends for four years of blogging!!!! This is YOUR party….not mine.
OOPS…….here comes some noisy thunder so I guess we’re still in the “pattern” – I’d better go for now………..our power hasn’t gone OUT but it has “blipped” a little bit. Blips aren’t good for computers you know!
See you tomorrow!
P.S. Our hearts are broken to learn of our friend Nerissa’s passing over the Bridge. MOUSES!
Nissy was one of a kind………………..I’ll miss you dear friend……….
