It’s been a rainy day, all day today. But, I’m not complaining! We so desperately need the rain…the last time it rained, here, was about two weeks ago. Everything was getting dry and the grass was starting to die and my well was starting to be effected. We haven’t run out of water, but the water table’s so low that the pump has to work harder, churning up more water as it pumps . . . the water coming from the hose was brown. It’s cleared up, mainly bc I’m seriously watching our water usage. Inside the house wasn’t too bad, but started to get murky yesterday.
We could use more rain than we’re getting today, but I’m thankful we’re getting it. On Saturday, I planted two tomato plants and a squash plant. My pool is also now full enough that I don’t need to add any more water. Just need to vacuum and treat it. Still watering my holly trees twice a day through Tuesday, then I can start once a week for two weeks!
It’s also not as hot…only 72 degrees (22.2C) at the moment. It had been getting up into the 90’s over the weekend – and humid! The lack of rain, the heat and the humidity were making things miserable. The pool water’s still way too cold to get in it, and really enjoy it. Even if it needs a little TLC. But today is a new day and things are better!
ever heard this one?
When God takes bath in the paradise, we all are bestowed with the blessed water descending as Rain.
a pleasant smell that accompanies fresh rain falling on dry soil
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
