These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Raining!! Really, really Raining!

This is unbelievable! The weather forecast was for "scattered thunderstorms" all day long, something like 20% chance. Well, three hours ago, it began raining, and I'm guessing that the 20% is parked right over my house! It has let up a few times to a drizzle, but it hasn't quit. Thankfully, most of it is a good soaking rain, so it is very beneficial. I haven't seen any runoff. whew. The rain gauge has about .3 inch. 3/10 of an inch rain ÷ 3 hours = soaking all my plants. Yesssssssssssssss.

The best things is that it isn't thundering any more. When it first began, jazi, who is afraid of thunder was a quivering mess. Now that it is merely raining, she is fine. Poor girl.

Now the weather report says we are going to be at 40% to 65% chance of rain and storms from now, all through the night. I hope I don't float away!


  1. Yeah for the rain. Hope all your hard work doesn't float away but grows great guns with the fresh rain.

  2. Yaaaaay for the rain. I have blueprint plans for an ark if your interested.

  3. I love the rain. I'm lucky to have a dog who isn't afraid of thunder. Our last one was. Poor Jazi. --Cheryl

  4. MJ, I don't think there's a worry about that. It was a nice gentle rain.

    LOL, Bobbie, thanks, I'll keep that in mind!

    Cheryl, Jazi isn't nearly as bad as my last "thunder-struck" dog. He absolutely would tear things apart out of his fear. I'm SO glad she isn't that afraid.

  5. YAY!!!! I sat outside in a storm and just got soaked, it felt so good.

  6. Isn't it wonderful, Julie? Igot nearly a half inch yesterday. Perfect. It all soaked in, I think! I understand why you woujld soak it up like that. We've both had long, dry spells.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
