My goodness- we’ve had a bit of weather last night and today. It started to rain heavily last night at about 10:30pm and it hasn’t stopped since.
Yesterday was about 60 degrees and overcast. It was a nice change from snow and ice and such, but it’s still…odd. I ran around without a coat on. I considered going sockless under my Birkenstocks.
All of the snow that we received over the past couple of weeks is long gone, except for the huge gray mounds in the mall parking lots.
All this moisture is making the lawn green and the soil underneath awfully squishy. We have this awful clay based soil out here that holds moisture too well. The soil is super soft when wet and harder than concrete when dry. Poor Roxie is gonna sink up to her doggie knees, I’m sure of it.
Last night, the wind was whipping and howling. The rain fell in those big drops that smack against the windows with a thwack. I was glad to slip into bed with someone and feel safe and warm. Well, someone besides Miss Roxie, of course. A special human someone.
