We woke up this morning to pouring rain and the sound of thunder in the distance. I turned on the weather channel while the coffee was brewing and the weatherman said one last wave of storms were just west of us and beyond that, was clear sailing.
About 9:30 it was Katy bar the door but true to his word, the clouds blew out and the sky turned blue as sea with big white puffy clouds. It was still quite windy but they helped to dry things out a bit.
We went for a walk after lunch down the walking path behind the barn. A few weeks ago we bought about a half pound of wild flower seed and scattered them along our trail. Today when we looked, we could see the wildflower plants beginning to peek out from the warming earth. Soon we'll have thousands of flowers to make our walk even more pleasurable. The good thing about wildflowers is they usually come back year after year unless they are disturbed. When they cut timber off the land adjoining ours, they scrapped the earth flat in places wildflowers and all but it's our intention to help them recover.
Tonight we had dinner with my sister-in-law and her family. We were celebrating her birthday and I would not be so imprudent to mention the age, but let's just say she has socks that could be classified as antiques.
Happy Birthday Pat :)
