IT'S RAINING!!! It's not a little shower; it's pouring down rain. It would be good if it slowed a little so the ground has time to absorb it. But we'll take whatever we can get.

Four homes were destroyed by fire in my area over the weekend. The cause: a discarded cigarette butt tossed out a window. We're in a level 2 drought and there is a ban on open burning. Sadly 4 families lost their homes because s/one tossed a butt out (talk about a burn and run). If you are in a drought area and smoke, please use an ashtray--do not toss the butt out the window, s/one could lose their home because of your carelessness. My lawn is so dry, it sounds as if one is walking across a bowl of cornflakes (and looks about the same)! The gardens are suffering. We watered for 4 hours on Friday. The pump draws 100 gallons / hour. That's a lot of water. We're hoping our wells don't go dry. Perfecting my rain dance...

By three this afternoon it will be 97 degrees F.
I love snow.
(at least until the beginning of March)

This is like living in an oven.

I'll sing this all day long......

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss good night
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It's about par for me. My shoulders start to hurt so I can't sleep. I usually go back to bed for another couple of hours around 7 or 8 a.m.

Good to know you go back to bed

Have you had a shoulder injury?
