Rainy day

When I walked outside this morning the sky was full of rolling gray clouds and it was raining.

I try never to complain about days like this because our summer was so dry. Our grass was so dry it crunched under your feet when you walked on it. We still have patches that look like this:

but lately God is blessing us with much needed rain. It has been very warm here this week so the birds have been fluttering around and singing and our grass is turning green again!!

The mountain in front of my house looks beautiful to me even in the foggy rain.

It never ceases to amaze me when I walk out on my front porch and look up at it. What is even more amazing is that I don't see all those electric wires either until I take a picture, then there they are!! I seem to just block them out and look beyond. They are a necessary eye sore so please try to look beyond and see what I see! Some people have to travel for miles to see this view that I can look at any time and I'm very thankful.

I'm just staying in today where it's nice and cozy and do a few much needed chores around here. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Good Afternoon Hope,
I'm glad you had the time with your neighbor this morning. I know how lonley is because I've had that lonliness before myself. Maybe we can have coffee together with Lib another day. I was knocking on Lib's door around 5:00a.m. this morning. I got up at 4:30a.m. and started my coffee. That is such a beautiful view even with the rain. It is just breathtaking. I'm so glad yall are getting some much needed rain. I think yall might get some more over the weekend. It rained here last night and early this morning. I thought the Sun was going to come out when I was taking the girls to school, but it clouded back up. I have been thru Wheeling, VA before with my hubby in a big truck. There is lots of pretty country thru there. The mountains scare me tho. I'm scared of heights. I guess because I have lived in flatlands all my life. What necessary line? Was there any? LOL. Well, take care my friend and have a great Thursday. May God Bless You and Yours.
