What a rainy Christmas!

      We got in just in time for the bottom to fall out! I was  dressed for a cold rain but I should have had on shorts and a T-shirt! We went to the mall to watch the children while their Mommie shopped. The mall was crowded and cell phones don't work in there, which makes it difficult to find someone when you get separated from them. No worries, he was still where I left him, that sixteen-year-old boy! Last year we had snow at Christmas which was quite a shock for the South. This year is like all the rest, rain! Oh well, at least the water table is filling up again! I'm thankful for rain, even though it may sound like I'm not, because I'm a gardener. I realize how important it is for plants and trees to acquire water, even in the dormant season.
      With all the business of the season and that headache I had, I forgot something important and exciting that happened to me. I won a stencil! Yes, me! I entered a giveaway at who was hosting a giveaway by Cutting Edge Stencils, and I was randomly chosen! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get the stencil in the mail and try it on my little cabinet that I just painted. I've never actually used a stencil and have recently tried to make my own stencil. It turned out pretty good, but I haven't used it yet. Hopefully soon, (is what I always say) I'll have the opportunity to try it out. I will snap a picture of it as soon as it comes in. I better hurry, the lights are blinking! Merry Christmas!

Liquid snow.

Need a drink?

The little mountain is covered in fog.

I need some rain barrels to capture this water!

Looks like snow but the dog chewed a hole in his bed and the wind blew the little white pellets onto the ground. That is a lot of water! We don't usually get that much at one time.


  1. Its been doing the same thing here all day too. I like the rain except when the plumbing starts acting up. Yuck.

  2. That's a lot of rain! And yes, being a gardener makes you happy to have rain! Why do dogs tear their beds apart? My dog's on his third bed this year! Congrats on winning the stencil! I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!
