One Day

I had to laugh. Jilda and I got up and got at it fairly early. I'd bought some more tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and five pounds of bermuda grass seed.
We finally got the tractor fixed, and the sun gods had smiled on us. Our nephew Haven finally managed to level our back yard enough so that I could plant grass.
After the storms and field line work, the back yard has been a muddy mess, but things were looking up.
Jilda and I planted the plants, she sowed two rows of flowers, I reseeded the back yard, and we kicked back on the deck mid afternoon to enjoy a glass of lemonade.
As we sat there, we heard something off in the distance. Mid swallow, Jilda said, "Is that thunder?" We hadn't checked the weather radar.
When we did, green globs were headed in our direction. As it turns out we got five inches of rain within about eight hours. We should have put lifejackets on the plants we planted.
I'm sure the grass seed is close to Mobile, Alabama by now. Maybe one day our yard will be back to normal.


  1. Oh no... that's aweful. I hope you get your yard back soon.. :-(

  2. We had a thunderstorm last night, too. I don't think I'll ever have grass in my backyard.


  3. Holy guys have had the worst luck with the weather..I thought I was the weather jinx! You are welcome to send some of that wet stuff our's been a bit since we've had any real rainfall...but not 5in please..I know, I'm a picky wisher!

  4. I hope your planted garden survived.
    You must have had to redo it today.
