Drying out the mail....

July 6th, 2007 at 10:45 am

The poor mailperson. I saw him slog by a little while ago, all bundled up trying to stay as dry as possible. It has rained another three to six inches of rain this morning, depending on where you are located. I went out to retrieve the mail and I've spread it out to dry. I don't think anything outside is dry today. The noon news said that 100,000 homes have been damaged or flooded in the last couple of weeks. Sobering thought. We've been really lucky here. Lots of water, but we have drainage and pumps in place. I guess that is one of the good things about living in a hurricane zone. My backyard is resembling a small pond. A baby bird has taken up refuge outside a bedroom window on the ledge. The kitty has been stalking it for two days. I guess the birdie can't figure out what is worse. The scary creature on the inside or the deluge outside. Poor thing. Its sad peeps are getting to me. It looks wet and miserable. My thoughts and prayers go out to those people who are wet and miserable and have lost their belongings and homes. This weather has been really something.

On the financial side, I decided that I definitely can do without a trip to the store today. Just doesn't seem worth it to get out. I had some papers to return to the bank, but they can wait until next week. We are in the process of getting the paperwork together to move old company's retirement stuff to new company. Now that they've been sold, it seems like we need to get onto that more urgently. Another thing we might be able to finish next week. I really need to start priming some walls around here, but to tell the truth, it is such a gloomy day that I just want to read and putter. And stay dry....

    Poor bird -- and all the people who are suffering. You stay dry!

    ...send SOME (only some!) rain my way!...we have had about 3 storms, which lasted about 15 min each and, the water level at the electric-generating plants has only risen by 5%...not quite enough...also, since rainy season had already started (or so we thought!), farmers planted their corn, which is now either dying or being attacked by a pest which typically breeds during dry spells in the middle of rainy season...

    Oh dear, miclason, I truly wish we could send some your way. Here's hoping that things turn around in your area real soon!

    It would probably be too humid to paint. Go ahead and enjoy your book without feeling guilty! Smile
