I had an appointment this morning and after watching the weather report last night decided to postpone it. We had quite a bit more rain yesterday and water was running down the ditches when I drove into town to run a couple of errands. I managed to get to town and back between downpours. The ground is saturated and it won’t take much more rain for water to be flowing over the road at our driveway. Guess what? We have thunderstorms forecast through this morning. Fine. My haircut and lab work can wait another day. I have no intention of trying to get where I need to be by driving through flash flood prone areas in another blasted downpour!
I got no knitting done to speak of yesterday…had one of those days when things needed to be done and I didn’t feel all that great to begin with. Today will be a good day to stay home, putter around the house with Brad and try to finish my socks.
I am very grateful for the help I received when I was in so much pain and needed to be hospitalized and it is good to be getting back on my feet again. I hate that I needed to be on antibiotics because now my digestive tract is all messed up again and it has me out of sorts and not interested in much of anything other than hanging around the house and reading or puttering on the laptop.
I’m hoping to get in the mood to do some cooking by the end of the week since we are both a little tired of sandwiches and take away. It will be good to be back on a regular diet and regain my energy. So, here’s to the rain finally getting past us and the mowers being able to take care of our shaggy yard. It’s much, much too wet to mow, same as last week, and the lawn crew are probably tired of having to put off work due to our bipolar Texas weather but it will eventually straighten out and before we know it we will be dealing with triple digit summer heat. And no rain.
As bad as the rain has been the last couple of months it still isn’t as bad as this time in 2015 as the photos below reveal. That is the tree grove north of our house and that water is flowing from the creek and the road, down our driveway and across our property.
