Rain, Glorious Rain!

I was going to post this Friday, but I got sick again. This time I am on antibiotics so maybe won't relapse. It rained heavily Thursday night and slowed to a light rain Friday morning. Two neighbors reported 3-1/2 inches in their gauges, so I'll take their word. I drove through our low field Sunday and didn't leave any ruts, so the water must have soaked in quickly. This was our first measurable rain in over two months, so we are still under a burn ban. But hopefully, it is the first of many more rains. I just need to get out there with some fertilizer first.

Friday morning, a friend went with me to a quilt show in a neighboring town. I say quilt show, but it wasn't like a guild show. It was a group of church ladies who have a quilting/sewing group and they like to show and sell their projects once a year. I wanted to take some photos, but since no one else was taking pictures, and since the items were for sale, I kept my phone in my purse. The ladies there were very friendly and invited us to join their weekly sewing circle, and I may go next time. By the time we left, it had stopped raining.

Our town was having a city wide garage sale Saturday, so I dropped Linda at her house to start setting up, and I went to the grocery store to buy kid-friendly foods because Lil and the grands were coming for the weekend. By the time I got home, I had a scratchy throat and the beginning cough. I took some AirBorne, but it didn't make any difference and by Saturday morning, I was feeling much worse. Needless to say, Lil didn't bring the kids to our house. I had just been to the doctor Thursday with another complaint, and Hubby went Friday for his cold, so I called the office and the on call doctor called in a prescription so I didn't have to wait until today to start antibiotics. I feel much better today too.

I hope you are staying well and have a good week.


  1. I hope you feel better soon. Getting sick is just awful. There are so many things to do and when you're sick you just don't have the energy.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  2. Marti: I hope you are feeling better today, I am so sorry you have this pesky cough.
    I love all city garage sales, you can find some great deals.
    I do wish I could send some rain your way, it has been raining here way to much, the farmers are having a hard time getting in the fields, some have a mold which causes the crops to be worth nothing, there are corn and bean fields all around the golf course, I love hearing the tractors in the fields.


  3. Wishing you a quick and full recovery!

  4. I hope you will better soon ❣

  5. I didn't realize it had been that dry there. We've had rain just about once a week since spring. Sorry you weren't feeling well. Hopefully the antibiotics did their job and you are just about back to normal.
