Shhhh, don't tell Mother Nature, she might change her mind....it looks like there is blue sky and sun outside at the moment. Which means working outside, even though it's wet out.
Yesterday afternoon, we got slammed with two huge deluges of rain, both lasting about 45 minutes each, and just sort of like Mother Nature was giving us the raspberry before the icky weather moves back to the west. This is a video I took during the first deluge:
We are going to work on redoing that path behind the ramp to the back door, so that the water drains better. We get the run off from the driveway as it curves toward the landlords. That green tote on the porch was empty before it started raining. By the time the two batches of rain were done, it was full to overflowing and I was able to fill 2 milk jugs (1 gallon each), for watering the garden, and can probably get another 3-4 out of it.
Our neighbor from our old place is supposed to come up this morning for a visit, and my aunt and I need to make a trip to Walmart today. I also need to hit Dollar Tree for a couple little things.
Yesterday the boys and I did a major shopping trip and got new garden tools (the landlord has been loaning us his), stuff for the house and outside. We got some great deals, but we were exhausted by the time we got back. I hate running errands.
Ok, time to get some clothes on and start puttering outside. It's a good thing my sneakers are still soaked from yesterday....no worries about getting them wet again lol. Need to get something better to wear outside. Or get another pair of sneakers to keep for everything except the garden.
Have a GREAT day!
