Hey Folks Its Raining
And we're loving it. Not enough of course but then we are never satisfied when it comes to rain. It has been a slow rain and that is what we need to soak in. I was able to get some Weed and Feed put out on my front yard. Actually was cold enough to put my hoodie up. The air smells so wonderful and fresh. The dust and whatever else was in the air has settled. The wind or something blew the rain gauge into a catty whampus position so I can't tell you the amount but we are so thankful for what ever we got and maybe more to come tonight. Had to get my blankie out last night. It felt so good. Just got my little electric heater out for this room. If I waited until July to put everything away it would still come one more cold (well its cold to us) spell and I would have to get it all out again so thats par for the course. I mixed my hummingbird juice today and filled the feeders and hung them on the porches. It is supposed to be warm again by Sunday and that is their due date here so I'm expecting them. We plan to go to the ranch tomorrow to check the cattle and see how much it rained there. Had to take John to ER a couple of nights ago as his throat was terribly sore and he is very hoarse. We like living right down the street from our hospital. The nurse who cultured his throat used to be our neighbor and the one who checked him in is from his hometown so she teased that he came up there to see if she ever works. The hospital is landscaped pretty and they already have bluebonnets blooming. John has two (count 'em) two indian paintbrushes in his back yard. My redbud tree is blooming pretty. The mesquite trees have leafed out and the old saying here is when they leaf out no more freezes. So I guess spring has sprung and this little cool spell it the last hoo-rah.
