When it rains it pours!
During the day as I was watching the dig I thought, "we might want to shut off the sprinklers." But, that was the last thought of it until the next morning.
6 am, he and I were just waking up when he ran to the window. "OH NO!!" were his only words. Suddenly, the full impact of those words hit me and I remembered that I forgot to tell him....not knowing that HE had been told to turn the spinklers OFF and had also forgotten.
Well, to make a long story short, we found ourselves bailing water out of a moat for the next 2 hours.
Now, you should know that we have had NICE very hot weather for the last week or so. NO PROBLEM. It will be dry in a day. NOT SO! The next day we had rain.
NOW for the icing on the cake. Afterwords I hosed down my husbands shoes. As I set them on the front porch to dry I rammed my foot into a rock and broke my toe.
Yup! It's been a good week. ;)

The good things in life
After dinner we gathered in a circle with all the kids to sing songs and hear stories. At one point I got up and walked to the back of the group and watched. "Life is good," I thought. Everyone in our group has had some trouble or other over the years. Some have had more problems than others, but here we were, all together, in a great big circle of support. We like being together.
In recent weeks as I have dealt with the loss of a friendship, I look to this group and feel an overwhelming gratitude for their friendship. To say that I love them doesn't quite speak to the warmth and total acceptance I feel from them.
“If we learn to appreciate more of what we already have, we will find ourselves having more to appreciate.”
Life is good!
