It is as wet here as it was dry in the summer. we are lucky we have good drainage here where we live but I imagine there will be flooding in San Antonio. I hope people will not go around the barracades and lose their life like they so often do. It has rained off and on all day and there is 100% chance tomorrow. Besides the rain there is shunder and lightening. John says that is not the norm for it to thunder and lightening with rain in the winter. The bluebonnets should be beautiful this year. I've been told the plants are already peeking through the ground. The cold doesn't hurt them. I've also been told they (who ever they is) is predicting an early spring.
I kept my word today and started getting rid of some of the hoarded items in the garage. It was hard to do but I got rid of my jump rope. I've had it about fifteen years just in case I wanted to use it for exercise. I never did want to. We've had a large country wall hanging rolled up that some renters left. Why we didn't leave it in the farm house where it looked nice for the next renters? But no, I just had to bring it home in case I could think of a place to hang it. Our walls already have enough stuff hanging on them. Everytime I walked to the back of the garage I pierced my leg with it. It won't do that anymore but I hope who ever gets it has a place to hang it and doesn't use it for a pet bed or something. Then there is the toaster oven I thought I would use so much. When I didn't I moved it to a special spot in the garage. Now those sticks that flags come on? Well I disposed of the old flags properly but I just may need those sticks some day so I stuck them in a corner with opened up coat hangers and old mops. Now someone else can find a corner for them just in case they need them someday for something. I actually threw away some small boxes just the right size to mail things in. Whoo my garbage can is almost full and the truck doesn't come until next Wednesday. You don't think I throw away gift bags or bows that are in good condition? Of course not but they are neat now. Not that I could find the one I need but by golly they are there just in case. I'm getting quite a collection of plastic bowls for Susie and they are stacked neatly. She even has a mat to stand on while she eats so her little paws doesn't get cold on the cement floor. Then when I got it all loaded it started to rain again so I had to drive fast to the collection box and throw it all away before I changed my mind. Now I know why that box is built the way it is. Once you turn loose there is no turning back, its gone.
