SOME SUNSHINE AT LAST !!!!
AHHHH!!!! The Sun was visible this morning even if it was hazy !!! All of nature seemed to be stretching toward it to dry all the last drops of rain.
This is the evidence of last night's flooding left against the road fence.
Caught this flock of female Mallard ducks enjoying the enlarged swimming area of flooded pastureland.
The Morning Glories were also glad to she the sunshine.
After lunch I baked 12 caramel, 4 chocolate and 1 coconut cake. I cleaned the kitchen and sunroom before g-son came to stay with me while his dad had new tires put on his Escape.
A lady came to pick up a 4 cake order this evening for her husband's 80th birthday party tomorrow. The party is outside so I hope it is early in the day !!!
G-son and I went outside to play until his dad got here to pick him up. We went on a frog hunt, but the little frog luckily escaped g-son grasp.
The skies got darker and the thunder grew quickly closer, so soon after hubbie came in from work we rushed through chores and headed inside just as the rain started again. After this storm passed it left almost another 1/2" in the gauge. On a positive note if this is all we get tonight this will be the least daily rainfall in several days.
The flash flood watch has been extended for area until Sunday with the forecast of additional rain each day we better get used to seeing these signs.
Good Night and God Bless.
