Dusted Off, But Damp

This is my view, which I have been looking at for one long month. Rain. More rain. And let's not forget, chilly. Except Tuesday, when it was 90 degrees F with a 72 dew point, and now it is 52 F. Just thought I would be my usual day brightener.
I have not been online for about a month, other than a little bit on Facebook. I needed a digital break and probably still do. I'm crabby. Ari just doesn't know what to make of it.
Bored geldings tired of standing in the mud.
Scamper checking out Bounce.
Oh, I'm tough!
I'm planning to put in a rose border along the sidewalk to the back door, which really acts as the front door. It is too wet, too cold and too depressing to get them in the ground.
Yep, smells wet.
Rhododendron finally decided to bloom. Brave. Very brave. We had snow about ten days ago.
Are we done complaining now? I want a nap.
Okay, I'll crawl back into my hole now. Maybe I'll come out when spring comes, probably sometime in July.


  1. This post was lost in blogosphere for 2 days. Nothing has changed, weather-wise in that time. *sigh*

  2. I appreciate you dragging yourself out of the mud to visit and update!

    Here's a laugh for you

    The Local Weather

    My turn to whine is coming right up!

  3. Beautiful, regardless of the rain. Do I spy an Old Allis in the background? We have a few of those old girls around here! -Tammy

  4. That is indeed an Allis! Mark grew up with them as the small tractor on the farm. The sun is shinning, woo-hoo!


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.
