Don't know what is happening, but I forgot my Thankful Thursday post on Thursday, but remembered it today. So, I guess you might call this my Thankful Thursday submission or my Thankful Friday submission--or maybe just absent-mindedness.

Today I am thankful that we have finally had some rain. Earlier this week we had two days when we had about an inch each day--our first significant rain event in several months. Today looks like rain, but I do see some blue sky between the clouds, so am hopeful that our yard will be under the rain again today. And the chances for more rain look pretty good for the next two days. The best part of all is that the temperatures have not been in the 100s all week! Whee! With September just around the corner we can begin to look forward to cooler temperatures in 3-4 weeks. That will be nice!


  1. We got lots of rain to and cool temps, it was so nice and needed. I'm glad you got some!!

  2. Your confusion about days reminds me of the woman who called the newspaper raging that her Sunday paper had not been delivered.

    "Ma'am," said the rep after a short pause. "We don't deliver the Sunday paper until Sunday," he continued gently.

    After another pause as the lights went on, the caller replied, "That probably explains why there was no one at church..."

    It's hard to keep track of the days when we are untethered from the public school system and corporate world. I like to think of it as evolving into a mode more similar to the Navaho and other cultures close to nature who do not think in terms of "linear" time. That's so hard for our clock- and calendar- dependent culture to understand ...
