Even though I prefer Blogger, I have a Wordpress blog at Marti's DIY for those who can't comment here. Or you can email me. (Right sidebar)

By the way, if you use Blogger and can’t comment on WordPress blogs, change to a different browser. I found that I couldn’t post to WordPress when using Firefox.

Apparently, some Wordpress blogs won't let me comment if I use my blogger email either. So if you get a comment from me from thisemaildoesntexist@_________, that's why.

I Never Thought I'd Celebrate a Day Without Rain

I heard on the news just now that we have only had three days in the last month without a drop of rain. I'm not sure that's right, unless he meant over the entire North Texas area. In any case, we didn't get a drop of rain yesterday, the sun is out today, and I am grateful, even if it is a sauna outside. We are expecting more storms tonight so this afternoon I will have to kick myself out of this air conditioned house to mow the yard, or as much of it as I can mow without going through swampland.

And since this blog post seems a little bare, a picture of my new lawn mower. (insert half-hearted yay here.)


  1. It's been raining a LOT in my area, too. It has turned the sagebrush lands lush with undergrowth. It's a rare and lovely sight.

  2. You have had far more than we have, but I am ready for a few rainless days. Never thought I would say this.

  3. It's been a crazy May in TX and OK this year. No rain forecast for today, but I think we'll have cloudy skies all day. At this point, I'm happy to just be dry.

  4. Well, we in Southern Ontario finally got rain on the 30th of May - after a month of nothing! Highly unusual.


Your comments make my day, and I look forward to visiting your blog too. If you'd rather comment on wordpress, click here.
