Two days ago we got a tremendous thunderstorm, about an hours worth, in
the wee hours of the morning. Dumped about 1 inch of rain plus some tree
limbs on us. The following day it was repeated in the morning daylight
hours with about the same amount of rain. Today it has been dark as
twilight all day and a slight rain has been falling since before noon.
I'm not complaining you understand, we were in near drought conditions
prior to Monday and now we're catching up on our rainfall. The gardens
and the plants therein look happy for a change.

I just went out and moved everything on the benches but the potted sage
out into the drizzle for a refreshing drink.  I do need to pick green
beans again but they can wait awhile. Had harvesting of herbs on my to
do list for today but that, too, can wait. Think Miss Sleepy Dawg and I
will go dance in the rain for a bit, at least as far as the mailbox.
Life is good.
