Embracing a dark and gloomy Monday……..


ms moolah 014

We haven’t had rain in weeks…..lately the storms roll right by our house laughing at the crunchy brown grass in our yard and bald trees. Today, it is raining…..really raining! I have never been happier to see such a gloomy day! The fur babies are napping and I’m doing laundry…………

Life is good!

Don't you just love those much needed rainy days? I would gladly take a few right now! Hoping that our hot, horribly dry summer will soon come to an end & we will have a beautiful autumn!

I am so jealous. I thought we would get rain over the weekend, but not. Only a sprinkle which was such a waste of time. The storms have gone all around us too and my yard is brown and crispy. Enjoy!

Oh Des, I am so thankful for the rain ... for you especially since I know your area is worse off than ours. I never though I'd say that I couldn't "wait" for fall - but I think I'm on the brink! :) LOL!

Ha Ha! I totally agree - today is my birthday and I am praying for rain. Looks like we might get it later.

Funny how such a thing could make us so happy!

Des, we have had very little rain with all of this scorching heat, did get a small break, it is still like a sauna though!

Love your image!

We didn't get rain here. Kept thinking we would, because of the clouds and because we kept hearing it was raining out by KC. However, the temps are down this morning. It is 68 at 6am...downright pleasant.

I am so ready to rush into Fall this year!

Oh yes, I'm so thankful for the much-needed rain. But our grass is still brown and crunchy, the brown leaves on many of our trees are falling off, and my flowers are looking pretty bad.

I'm certainly ready for Autumn to arrive.
