Rain, rain, go away!

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Yesterday was sunny and bright and I really felt motivated. Today, more rain. When will it ever stop. I saw that on cloudy and rainy days I'm really not motivated at all. Sunny days I want to sing and dance and get outdoors, or even get in my sewing room and be creative. We have been inundated with lots of rain. To the north of us there are families forced out of their homes because of flooding. Grandson, Joey, is supposed to have a soccer game later today, but we don't believe that is going to happen because they are trying to fight flooding of the soccer fields. I know it is a blessing from God that we receive all the rain, but sometimes it comes with a force that is hard to tolerate. We're expecting a beautiful day on Sunday. I will wait till then to mow the lawn. It's been a long time since I've mowed but I still feel it is too soon for Tom to do it. It's three months out from his surgery and not quite that since his blood clot. I'm dreading the mowing, it's been a while since I cut the grass, it was the last time Tom had surgery back in 2008. I used to love doing it when I was younger. My son-in-law would do it for me, if I asked, and I'm sure he will get upset with me, but I can handle this and I know I will feel better after doing it myself. I need to stop pampering myself and start moving.

    Hope your Sunday has been as nice as ours! We, too, have had quite a bit of rain and it sounds like there is more to come next week. I actually don't mind the rainy days until it gets to be more than 3 or 4 in a row. It's just a good time for me to try to get caught up with things in the house. Now, trying to get things done outside is harder! LOL! I hope you enjoy the mowing...I've always liked it, but now we mow 2 acres and do it with a rider...nothing like walking behind a push mower!

    I actually love mowing now that we have a key start mower! No more pull, pull, pull.
    It's a walk behind but it has the assist so it practically pulls itself. Now it isn't such a chore, but a pleasure.
    Hope your hubby gets well soon and is back to yard work in no time.

    Charlene, I feel the same way as you, I feel so good when the sun is shining. But we, up here in the great Northwest get lots and lots of rain. Today is cloudy, very breezy and is supposed to really pour tonight and tomorrow.

    Stay safe from the floods. You can mow, it is something you never forget how, just like driving a car---lol Hopefull you don't have to pull it and crank it to get it started, I lost my strength for that. Come to think of it, even in my younger years I couldn't do that. Hubby or son always had to start it. Now we use a key and ride it around our yard, LOL

    Hugs, Gail

    You have a lovely day and may your raindrops turn to rainbows and sunshine before the day is over.
