After the rain

It rained almost everyday last week. The weather man said it would not rain that much. It was forecast to rain all weekend, but it has been gorgeous around here since Friday.

I really ought to be out mowing my yard, but I think I'll let it ride until Monday. maybe it will rain some more and I can get another few days out of my procrastination.

Thanks to the rain, The Boss Lady and I are starting to enjoy our veggie garden. Today for lunch we had nice green salads that were completely home grown. Usually we add the greens from our garden to other salad items from the grocery store.

After church I was out in the garden trying to decide if I could squeeze in another few plants. With the onions, carrots, potatoes, watermelons, tomatoes, green beans, snow peas, leaf lettuce, greens, peppers and herbs we are are growing, I think there is no room left.

This afternoon The Talker had several friends over to play. Our six year old neighbor seems to have a knack for ringing the doorbell right as I doze off on the couch.

So here I am, the family has left for church, I missed most of the NASCAR race and my nap got cancelled by a 6 year-old doorbell Jedi master. I could/should get out and mow my yard tonight. Instead I think I'll try to catch up on that nap I missed out on earlier.

I hope you got that nap. I could use one today....

No nap. Crap.

Instead I ended the evening with a huge headache. Fun for everyone.
