We normally get a little over 6 inches of rain in the month of May..we almost have that now. Most of which fell in a few short hours last Friday. Causing flash flooding and other flooding in nearby towns. I saw on the news earlier that we have had 11 straight days of rain. Today was just a slow drizzle at best after a foggy start of the day. I hear thunder in the distance now but it’s not suppose to get too severe in my area of the state. Good news though we’re suppose to have a dry day tomorrow! Before the rain returns late the next day. Hopefully we’ll have some sun tomorrow too..I did get a glimpse of sun early yesterday morning before the clouds returned. I know if a few short weeks we’ll be complaining because it’s too dry..we’re never completely satisfied for very long are we….But..I think I am beginning to grow web feet!
I am itching to do some gardening but between not being able to move and the rain I have yet done anything yet. I have decided to plant some squash again in the containers we did last year. At least we can move them when we move. I had planned on getting some hanging baskets this last weekend but it was just too wet to enjoy looking so I put it off. Maybe I will try and get that done tomorrow or the next day. Again something we can take with us. And the hummers always like it when I have hanging baskets out. Not sure what I want yet…at least one petunia because they smell so sweet in the evenings. Probably, some begonias because they tend to do well in the heat.

Every have one of those mornings? This morning I get up as normal when the alarm goes off..after letting the dogs out, feeding the cats I go to put together my DH's lunch..we had grilled shrimp and veggies last night for supper. I put the rest of the shrimp and some of the veggies in a container to send for his lunch. In another container I put the rest of the veggies for my lunch..I get a call about 11:30 my DH ( laughing)asking me if I had forgotten something? I thought no..I put in everything I needed..and then he ask about the shrimp...yes, you guessed it I put the wrong container in his lunch..and no I didn't have it for mine..he'll have it tomorrow...I would of felt too guilty eating his shrimp although he told me to go ahead.
Well...it's time for Dancing with the Stars...so I think I will go fix something to drink and watch it. Only a couple of more shows after tonight..and then I will go into withdrawels..I love this show!
Thanks for stopping by!
