… yesterday afternoon it finally rained… just a misting at first, but it helped…. when the shower was over, I walked out and watered the cracked ground a little more with the hose… an hour or so, it took, but it needed it…..

… after settling myself back inside to watch television, a peal of thunder grumbled off in the distance…soon after, lightning streaked across the sky to the southwest.. and an hour later a slow, steady rain was falling…. I probably shouldn’t have watered the garden after all, but I had..

… it rained on and off all night… and now the morning air is choked with fog… steam rising up from the wet ground as the sunshine heats the grass….

… the dust has been washed off of the leaves and the plants look lush after their gentle soaking… a night of rain has buoyed them for another long-haul of Summer….

… I’m off to sit on the patio without my shirt or shoes and watch the morning… today is going to be a very good day… the coffee just finished perking..

Damn, dude... you've got the humidity kicking your ass at home, and you've got a tough crowd here...

So much for me helping you to become a HUGE TIME blogger. Heheheh...

... it started wonderfully... and that always makes for a good day...

... because even if it ends badly, you can look back to the bright way you looked at it to begin with.... and focus on that to see you through....
