It has been a rainy day here. We needed the rain since we have had no precipitation to speak of since it snowed last month. This has been the perfect kind of rain for the garden, too--slow, steady, gentle. I hope those baby vegetable plantings out back are drinking up. The flowers were ready for a good drink as well. I'm just glad I don't have to drag out the hose today.

Mike's sister and her husband are coming for the next weekend so I have a list of preparations to make for that. It will be a good time and we look forward to their visit. Hey, maybe we can go all Tom Sawyer on them and get them working on scraping the deck. Or...maybe not. Maybe we can come up with something a bit more fun to do.


  1. It has been raining for a good month here... now it's starting getting sunny and fine... the nature is at its best and I start taking pictures (http://www.flickr.com/photos/curly07/) again!!! I truly love Spring and the beginning of Summer!!!
    Have fun! Your weekend sounds to be great! Love, K

  2. It has been hot hot hot with a little rain here! But life must go on. Right at the moment- and it is before 8 AM - it is beautiful,kind of cool and bright out. (Just in case you were curious about the forcast in NE Pa.! LOL) - I try to do most of my chores early while it's cool and I have the most energy! But Tom Sawyering it sounds good to me!! If only followed by a wonderful outing!! LOL!

  3. Aw, just forget that porch and have fun. Funny how it will wait.
    Envy your rain. We just get teased everyday with thunder but no rain. Also we are way too hot for this time of year ( mid to high 90's)
    Enjoy your company.

  4. It's hot here in Oklahoma too! We did get some rain last weekend but all it did was make it humid! Ugh!

  5. Enjoy your rain. We have what we call June Gloom here. It means a marine layer keeps things all cloudy and cool. I love it because once it gone it will get really hot, and it will stay really hot until October.
