Rainy Friday

It rained today, a good soaking rain.  We needed it.  The Rain Maiden hasn’t been round much since somewhere around the end of June.  I did my little rain dance this morning in hopes that it wouldn’t miss us this time.  I don’t mind depriving the weeds of water but everything else (veggies, trees, flowers) suffers too.

I am grateful for the rain and enjoyed watching it come down to water the earth.  The birds seemed grateful for it too.  They were out there playing in the puddles and swooping around in what looked to me like pure joy.

I had a busy day, getting ready for the weekend.  Our granddaughters and their parents are coming for a visit.  They should be arriving later tonight.  M and our oldest son will be building a floating dock to put in the pond.  I’m just going to hang out with the girls (unless the guys need me to help out with something).

For some reason Mom was on my mind today so as I went about my chores, I talked with her.  I figure if she can hear me, maybe she can help me out with a few things.  And if not, well, she’s still in my heart and it’s nice to visit with her there.
