Thursday night we had a huge, long, drawn-out downpour. It was so heavy, fast, and furious that the porch floor flooded and some of the mess came in the house under the inside door. UGH! I’ve had the ceiling fan running non-stop trying to dry out the carpet by the door. It is drying, but it’s taking a while. And it stinks. Like stale, dirty water. I’m going to open the windows a little later to get some fresh air in the room.
Yesterday we had more rain, but thankfully not enough to re-flood the porch quite as bad. Just enough so the girls and I couldn’t get in more than five minutes of playtime outside.
Thankfully the rain stopped overnight and the muddy water on the porch was able to drain out through the holes we made a few years ago.
About ten minutes ago, the sun broke through the clouds and the sky has actually turned a pretty blue again.
Not willing to miss the opportunity to work off some more of Ducky’s pent-up energy – and because Shadow told me she needed to answer a nature call – I quick-like-a-bunny ushered the girls downstairs, out the back door, and into the yard. I threw Ducky’s Kong Bounzer across the yard for her to pounce on and then did a sidearm fastball pitch of Shadow’s ball that Peter Moylan would be proud of. (Peter was, until not long ago, an Atlanta Braves relief pitcher who I really like. Pee on the Braves for trading him AGAIN!)
Well, I have a few errands to run so I need to cut this short. (You’re Welcome! BOL). Have a great Saturday everyone!!
