That is what we are doing. Here in Southeast Missouri we have had almost two weeks of beautiful weather. Starting last night and so far all day today we have had nothing but thunderstorms. The farmers spent the last week plowing and fertilizing their fields and now as I look out the window all I see is mud! Hopefully it will start drying up by next weekend. I want to get our garden out.
All the irises are popping up and blooming and look so pretty. Yesterday I went to check on the asparagus and its coming up but really spindly. I was going through old post and found by this time last year, we had already had a couple good batches of it. Hopefully all this rain will get it going.
Ready for a few phrases today?
Ogni giorno e' un nuovo girono.
ohn-yee johr-noh ay oon nwoh-voh johr-noh
Every day's a new day.
Thursday was my youngest son, Lucas's birthday. I cannot believe my baby is 24. I don't feel much older than that myself. Well.... maybe a little bit. I found myself reminiscing and remembered that 24 years ago on that day, I was out mowing the yard. I was two weeks overdue and my husband's sister had come over, threatening my life if I was not careful. *laughing* I still mowed the grass and after cleaning up proceeded to my nearest Dairy Queen and ordered a double cheeseburger and fries with a chocolate shake. After I finished eating... I told them all I was in labor. I knew if I had not eaten before, once I got to the hospital, they would not let me eat till I had him.
Five and a half hours later, Lucas made his way into the world!
Well there is some serious thunder and lightening going on out there so I better sign off. I hope you all are having a drier weekend than we are.
