Everything sublime is as difficult as it is rare. Baruch Spinoza

It has been almost two months since we have had rain, and the last rainfall was not much. My pastures are brown, my lawn is gone and I can't water the gardens enough. When Kristina rides in the sand arena it creates a huge dust cloud. There is a chance of rain for this evening and I am doing the dance. Please, please rain.


  1. We need rain south of the equator as well! I sure hope some blows your way and ours : ) !

    Love your quotes, by the way. I taught 4 th grade at a bilingual international school last year and we started each week with a Quote of the Week. The students are mostly ESL so it was fun to teach them quotes and then hear them recite them at appropriate moments. Everyone's favorite was "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!"

    Ate Logo,

  2. We didn't get any of the rain. Wed. is our next 'chance'. The rain goes to the north or the south of us every time. Hopefully you will fare better.

    I quotes. I have always wished I could be that witty or smart, or both!


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
