It is raining, very lightly, but that is great. In fact, for now a shower is best as it will soak in the dry soil better that way. It is getting so terribly dry here, and it is thrilling that rain is finally happening!
The weather people say that we will have rain at some level or 4 to 7 days. In fact, they say we may be getting a monsoon, and it is a month earlier than is usual. I hope we get rain for all seven days or even more, just not really hard! I hope it rains every day, but not enough to have a lot of runoff. We need it to be slow so it can soak in. I spread topsoil last week, and I surely hope it doesn't just run down the mountain! It is fairly well set in now, and the grass is coming up through it, so hopefully, it will hold. Wish me luck for a mild monsoon!
I had a list of tasks to get done before the rain, and I thought I had all day, but the clouds began building and I hurried to finish the last few. It began sprinkling about 15 minutes after I came in. Fortunately I got everything done but one thing, and I can finish it on the deck. I got a lot done, even a couple small tasks that weren't on the "must do today" list. Now with the rain beginning, I will be relegated to inside chores. But that's a good thing, too. I've neglected those things for a couple weeks, doing only the most necessary ones.
OK, I think I need a nap. Don't call me, I'm sleeping!
