Drenched

It has been raining and storming for nearly 24 hours almost non-stop (still a few hours shy of that, but it’s close and we aren’t anywhere near done yet). Normally, that isn’t that big of a deal but that rain has been coming down in buckets that entire time. Oh, and the storming part. Yeah, that part was super fun to try and sleep through. I couldn’t decide which was worse. The wind sounding like it was going to blow the roof off or the massive claps of thunder that shook the foundation for extended periods of time feeling more like an earthquake than thunder. And it is COLD! I actually had to turn the heat back on. I don’t think I’ve ever done that this late in May.

Between the lack of sleep last night and the night before (thank you lack of grace for giving me achy muscles and a banged up elbow!), I’m struggling to not be grumpy. I can say the positive in all of this is that, fingers and toes crossed, we haven’t seen any leaks. I’m kind of shocked by that. I don’t think that we’ve had a crazy heavy rain like this in the 15 years we’ve been in this house that didn’t give us at least a small leak somewhere. Today, I’m taking the positive where I can and running with it.

Now if I could just find a book to read…

Suspended

I have a whole list of projects I want/need to work on. A couple of them have legitimate reasons why I haven’t started on them. Others, I’m just kind of procrastinating on. I feel like I don’t want to start anything new until my book is completely done, cover and all, and finally released into the wild. I know I still have at least a couple of weeks before that happens, so I have the time to work on something else, I just don’t really want to start yet.

Winter Wonderland… FINALLY!

We finally got some snow. Lots of it. It is the perfect kind of snow to get out in and photograph, so that is exactly what BG and I did. It wasn’t too cold, either which made it really nice. I got some amazing shots and I’m still going through most of them, but this is one of my favorites. Our hike led us to discover this beautiful little pond just a couple minutes from us that we didn’t know anything about. It is probably going to be one of my favorite new spots to photograph.
