August 10th – It’s Raining Again πŸŽΆ

After a hot dry spell, we had a beautiful, refreshing little rain last night. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Rain coming down!
This rain barrel is full and our big tank on the other side of the garage is looking good too!
I won’t have to water the garden today and rain is so much better for it than city water!
Everything looks cleaner and brighter – even the rocks around the pond.
We didn’t get the front lawn fertilized but Dan got it mowed before the rain.
It will be cool enough to get up and clean the playhouse today. That will be nice for Dom when I have him next week. πŸ€—

I do appreciate the nice, refreshing rain but that is not all we have to be grateful for today! Dan got approved for time off so we will be attending son Dan’s wedding reception! Three days to celebrate Dan & Amanda and their beautiful (official) family. πŸ’ž

Pandemic internet wedding December 31st, 2020. It wasn’t the in-person experience but beautiful all the same! (As lovely as their wedding was, the reception will not be held in their basement πŸ˜‚)

That’s it for today and that is plenty to be grateful for! πŸ₯³

Have a beautiful day and see you tomorrow. πŸ’ž

It is not the joy that makes us grateful. It is the gratitude that makes us joyful.

  2. We finally got a bit of rain last night as well, it wasn’t much, but it’s better than nothing. Too bad it’s still hot and humid though and we’re still under a heat warning in Southern Ontario. Happy to here that you and Dan can take some time off to celebrate with the other Dan and his family.

  3. Beautiful photos, we’ve had a rather dry summer here as well and rain is needed. Still, we have had a few showers recently and I am so very grateful for that. Best wishes to your son and his wife as they celebrate their wedding. I hope you have a wonderful time!

  4. Most of ours are in steel pipe planters. Dan started with that to protect our cedars and kept going so we didn’t have to work on our hands and knees. Also, he surrounded them with sand so our little grands at the time had sand to play in.
