My last trip to school for a couple months was a rainy one this morning.
After sloshing through chores I sat out in the sunroom and watched the rain while I had breakfast.
I got caught up in going through some magazines out there and then moved some things around to redecorate for the summer. I knew I needed to be baking cakes or doing today's housecleaning duties but it was just one of those days that I didn't want to be on a schedule.
After having lunch I decided it was time to get back on schedule so I baked 12 caramel,4 chocolate and 2 pound cakes then cleaned the kitchen and sunroom. I watered all the inside plants and sat my ferns out in the rain for a drink.
The clouds broke in the early afternoon for a little bit of sunshine before the storms moved back in with darker clouds.
This is our potato patch after the 1 1/2 inch of rain fell in about 20 minutes.And that was just the first storm !!
Daughter, who is collecting all the donated food for "project Graduation" tonight in the neighbor's 15 passenger business van is out in the middle of this rain I'm sure getting a soaking.
The local high school tried to sneak their graduation ceremony in between the rain storms but didn't make it and they all got soaked. I remember that happening when my #1 son graduated. After you are wet there is no sense moving inside.
These dark clouds loomed as the graduates marched on to the football field for the ceremony. One of my nephews was in this class.
I waited until about 10:00 tonight and took a flashlight out to shut the doors of the chicken houses when the rain slacked to a sprinkle. I poured 2 1/2 inches from the gauge on my way back inside.
I iced cakes tonight and washed the muddy eggs of the last couple days to get ready for market tomorrow.
Grateful to God for sparing our farm any hail this afternoon and thanking Him for the blessings of the day.
Good Night and God Bless.
