Recent world events have given my brain a huge shot of Novocaine. Stunned numb might describe my brain activity now.
In my little corner of the world, storms and rain have also claimed part of the local thoughts. We have been blessed not to have had the terribly damaging storms in "Tiny Town", but we have had constant, daily rain with all eyes trained on the White River.
Now I finally understand why my bloggy friends in the North West get wigged out when it rains all the time there. As the rains drain off the roof, so do the thoughts from the head.The rains have been relentless. I have recorded 22 inches in the past week. My plants are some how surviving in this clay pond I call a yard where they have been treading water. In fact the weeds are thriving.
The great news is that they should be rewarded soon and get to rest their flailing roots. The sun should return sometime today and stay with us for 4 days before the rains come again. Yes!!!
I realize some of you are coughing up dust from a prolonged drought and wish I would quit whining about what you would love to see. What I am saying is that there really needs to be a way to even out weather events.
We need to spend less time and money perfecting gadgets that track our every move and keep us in instant contact with anyone who will listen and put that brain power to work on solving the weather and energy problems. Come on Bill Gates, you can do it.
Yes, I have a slightly irritable side that sunshine usually keeps at bay.
I am hoping to find where those 30 bags of mulch I had put out went. Pretty sure they are floating down Panther Creek which lies below me, Kind of glad now I wasn't any where near finished putting it all out.
I promise to quit whining now, get some breakfast and prepare to put my yard back in order today. I do realize how fortunate I am that it is only a yard to put in order and I am not picking thru debris that was once a house.
Since there are so many people in many parts of the world who would eagerly trade for my tiny problems, I will slink off now, shut up and behave. See ya on the sunny side. Now where did I put those boots?
I do hope there is sun brightening your corner of the world today.
