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.
