Rain, rain!

We were thankful for both our awning and the patio umbrella as the six of us sat down to dinner last night...a light rain began falling...and it is still coming down this morning.  We need it, but not two rainy Mayberryweeks of that stuff like what has been happening back in Mayberry!  No.Thank.You.  Amy/Jason’s backyard is slowing resembling a lake!  They are, at least, grateful that they are not dealing with forest fires.  Everything in perspective.

It’s there; we have to go.  It is John G’s time!, but it will be for lunch today.  The four Bells will meet up with a sweet couple, Fran and Neal.  Dick and Bob’s parents were godparents to a few of their children, so these two knew our big boys way back when they were wee boys.  It will be good to connect with them again.  Getting to see old friends is just another perk of coming back to this area each year.

So that will probably be the highlight of this overcast day.  And that is perfectly OK.  Kicking back with a good book seems like a mighty fine plan for later on.  But we may first have to shop for a patio table and chair set after lunch.  We stay flexible in our planning.  Or NON-planning.

That’s life in paradise on a damp Tuesday, y’all!

Yikes! My Swamp has looked like that a few times these past few years. Today I am grateful that it's just overcast and a bit misty now and then.

Sounds like you have a fine day ahead, come rain or come shine! Big hugs xoxo
