Just Another Rainy Friday

Standard

Rain Makes Things Green

No this is NOT my yard.....IF ONLY!!!!!

No this is NOT my yard…..IF ONLY!!!!!

It has rained from first thing this morning until now and will continue into the night but man oh man has it made Spring POP around here.   The cooler temps came with the rain but that sure didn’t stop Spring from springing.   The pollen is flying around so the rain has put THAT under control, and the only BAD thing is I haven’t been able to go out and munch on the grass because – well – I don’t like to get too wet!!!!    Yes I’m a wienie – so what?    Not many cats enjoy WET………..well maybe some do:

CATINRAINCOATAt least this guy is prepared!

BATH2This guy is just plain nuts!

No I’m more the “keep me nice and dry pretty please” kind of guy and if I was getting too wet I’d definitely be like this guy:

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, Mom planted a bunch of stuff earlier this week and if we could just get a bit of time without rain, I’d share some photos of everything……….so maybe by this weekend some time we’ll get Mr. Flashy Box out there and take some photos.

There was some cleaning activity around here today though so we did have the MONSTER MASH……we did have Mr. Vacuumator come out of his closet house and trip the light fantastic all over the house – Mr. and Mrs. Broomhilda did the dusting and heavy work and Mom and Dad snoopervised.

Mrs. Broomhilda

Mrs. Broomhilda

Mr. Broomhilda

Mr. Broomhilda

Mom says they scare the dirt and dust away.   HAHAHA…..actually I have to tell you that when my Mom was growing up her family had an English Bulldog for a family pet.  His name was Sir Reginald but they called him Reggie.   He was white with a brown “saddle” on his back and he was 80 lbs. of muscle.   My Mom used to TRY and take him for a walk but it was more like he took her for a walk.   She was no match for him and he knew it.   Anyway, he was one of the SWEETEST dogs they ever had so I’m sure if I could get close enough to have a conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Broomhilda (eeeek) I’d love them too but frankly……I’m just a TEEEEEENY WEEEEEEENY bit afraid of them!

So, that’s my Friday report.   Slightly boring but nonetheless it’s from ME so I know you’ve loved every word of it…………………..Right?   RIGHT?  RIGHT?

CLEANINGHEARING

Happy Friday!!!!  Sammy

  1. hahahah I’m probably the twin of Sir Reginald (that’s a super name for a bulldog!!!) We have no rain, but it is cold… maybe when may-vember moves in we will get warmer temperatures? Or snow?

    • Easy I’m amazed at the snow that’s popped up here and there across the pond……fortunately so far here we’ve had COLD but no snow. I’m hoping that it stays that way although I would like Mr. Warm to come back! He teased us for a few days and now he’s let Mr. Rain hang out for a while. Are we ever really HAPPY with weather? May-vember better be better than April!!

  2. I had a bulldog (along with a German shepherd) run through my backyard while I was cutting the grass today. They were both pretty big, and I get a bit skittish of big dogs running around loose because when I was growing up, one of our neighbors had a doberman that constantly got loose and wreaked terror on everyone. But they merely wanted to mark my yard as their territory and move along… perhaps persuaded by the fact that I was operating an implement of destruction!

    • We’re lucky here in that nobody lets their dogs run free in our neighborhood. We know there are a lot of dogs around because we hear them barking a lot BUTTTT they are either fenced in or out on leash. You would remember an event from your youth for sure and keep an eye open for strays. Good thing you have a mower with you when you’re out there now – PROTECTION!!!!

  4. That first yard looks like the Emerald City! Soon your yard will look like that, S. Rain helps, even though it’s scary sometimes. Plus your mom has a green thumb. Whenever my mom hangs a plant outside, she says, “Poor thing.” Then we watch it die a miserable death.

  7. I really did love every word of it :\

    We’re in North Carolina and last night it just started HAILING!!! Out of nowhere!

    Thankfully our little Gabby is super brave, and the first thing she did was get really big and puffy and ran to make sure that under the bed was nice and safe for Mommy and Daddy, in case we needed to hide, you know.

    I would love to see pictures of the stuff that got planted once it stops raining! We’re in the process of attempting to garden some fresh veggies, but Gabbers keeps eating all the sprouts before they can grow.

    Like

    • HAHAHA…..I love the “picture” of Gabby raiding the veggie crops while they’re nice and new and tender. Well, it’s what we do right? Mom and Dad no longer have a veg garden although they DO grow stuff in pots on the deck so the deer won’t eat them. The wildlife here eats EVERYTHING so we have to garden on the deck and front porch. Anyway, Mom will take photos of our flowers as soon as this crummy rain stops. I did hear from another blogger in NC about the hail and bad storms. EEEEK! No hail here – just WET stuff.

  10. Rain can be wonderful and welcome (sometimes), can’t it, Sam?! 🙂 I really liked the wonderful fresh smell we had in our garden lately, after the showers. And, of course, the greening of everything. Plus the gurgling of that little creek at the end of our property. [http://tinyurl.com/h8ffhz3 and http://tinyurl.com/hpsrwbh%5D

    • Mom knows there are some photos in HER Mom’s old box of stuff so she’ll see if she can find the ones with Reggie in there. I remember there was a puppy one and one of Reggie on Grandmom’s lap which was pretty silly considering his size as he grew up! Our cleaning is DONE but not the BIG SPRING clean – that will happen whenever my Mom is in the mood which could be………………(wait for it)………………NEVER!

  13. Morning handsome Sammy my friend. Boy did we have some thunder boomers last night too. And some parts of our county had horrible winds and hail. April showers are sure gonna bring some May flowers and hopefully wash all the nasty Evil yellow dust of the devil down the storm drain.

    • We had a couple of boomers but mostly just some fairly steady rain all night…….HAIL??? Oh no! Don’t like hail – it smashes flowers and stuff!!! I do hope that this rain will away some of the pollen because people are sneezing up a storm!!

  14. I hope the rain stops and you have a good weekend. Your story reminded me of our dog Bruno, who was a Saint Bernard. When I was Two or three, he would let my sister and I ride him like a horse. It was so sad when a station wagon pulled into our driveway and took Bruno away. Years later my mom said they feared he was too big and would hurt one of us but he was like a gentle giant.

  17. The weather has been kind of sunny and kind of rainy this week. Right now it is GORGEOUS…but the wind is so strong…Mommy says that it could blow a person to Alberta!!! Mes furry happy that she is big enough (and heavy enough) that she made it home or mes would never would has gotted my supper.
    Mes LOVED the sleeping pictures of yous yesterday. Mommy has to catch mes when when she comes home from work! Mes always leaps up to greets her (and gets treats) then me YELLS at her until she sits down and then me sits on her and wants pets for about 10 minutes, then mes goes back to sleeps. And then mes yells in the middle of the night, because mes asleep in the living room in my beddie and she’s in her bedroom and she has to come and get me. Then about 3 in the morning, mes does the same…and then again around 5…
    Anyway, mes thinks yous looks marvelous darling!

    • Nellie you are so lucky to have a Mommy who totally understands you and what you need to be happy. I’m sure when she walks in the door you’re very happy to have her home…..and the fact she will get up when you yell for her is what our wonderful Moms do even though it might not be totally CONVENIENT for them to leave their warm bed to soothe us in the middle of the night. Sometimes I just need to SEE my Mom or get some pets, then I will go back to sleep…..You and I are very blessed aren’t we Nellie?????

I’m so sad for both of you AND worried about both of you but let’s hope she’s better soon and things can settle back down………….I’m sending hope and love.
