June 27, 2010

Today I'm thankful for RAIN!  I woke up this morning to a few pitter patters outside on the deck, then it came pouring down for a few moments before fading away again.  We haven't had a good rain in WEEKS.

After we got around, we headed off to church.  The kids were a bit wild, but at least I made it through the lesson and the kids retained a few important bits of information. 

I fixed a frozen pizza for lunch, and then we all laid down for a nap.  Later in the afternoon we headed out so the kids could play, while I helped Dave measure, string line, and set posts for the chain link fence.  In the process of setting posts, another shower pounded through and got us all soaking wet.

It cooled things down nicely, but it didn't take us long to dry out.  We sat out on the deck for a little while, drying off and watching it sprinkle . . .

and the sunset was amazing this evening.  It lit up the sky with all shades of pink and peach.  Even off to the East.

We still have a lot of clean up and landscaping to do, but it will just have to come a little at a time.

I'm hoping to get to bed early, so I can start my week off on the right note.
