Rain Rain Go Away!

Notice the raindrops on the lens? 

We have had 9 inches of rain in the last two days. 

We are expecting more tonight and tomorrow. 


Here is a better picture.  The pond is WAYYY up at the Ag Hall. 

Where you see the line of water lillies is where the pond bank has been. 

The little pasture pond is also way up, but there was nary a cow or calf in sight. 

Lilly has been making fence friends with a new neighborhood friend.  

Yes, I let my fence grow up, I thought there would be chickens here. 

No, I have not cut it, much to my neighbor's chagrin. 

This looks like the dogs don't like each other, but their tails were 
wagging madly. 

Knock on wood, I have still not been stung. 

If I put the finch jelly out, the yellow jackets leave the hummingbird feeders alone, 
but to tell you the truth, there are only about five hummers still eating here. 
Migration has started. 

Fall baseball has started, and games are on Sunday afternoons.  Jax was mugging for me here.  He is still the smallest on the team, so is Number 1 this season. 

His team won their game Sunday, I think that was their first win. 

They are wonderful boys, with wonderful coaches. 

I had to do an errand this afternoon, and took the long way home.  These horses live at the most beautiful place, a huge home and a huge barn that sit on a hill with a park-like pasture in front of them.  It was fun to see them there, in the shade. 

Keith has a procedure tomorrow at the hospital, I would like to ask 
anyone reading this to say a little prayer for him, he is not 
well tonight and we are hoping he feels better by tomorrow evening. 


  1. 1st of course you have my prayers for Keith and you. I do pray all goes well and he is feeling better by now.
    Looks like you have gotten all that rain we had a couple of weeks ago. I was so worried about not getting hay, but we finally did.

    We have huge wasps all over the wind fall pears. I'm letting them have them because I don't feel like trying to get them away from them.

    Take care,

    POTP at work this side too!!! I am a fan of gardens with 'frilly edges'... my neighbours were glad we had solid fences between us... YAM xx

  3. I'll be thinking about you and Keith. I hope all goes well and he is feeling better soon.

  4. Send just a LITTLE of that rain our way; we need it. Prayed for Keith.

  5. keith will be in my thoughts. so, that's where all of my rain is!!!

  6. We've had our 7th wettest year so far. Hoping Keith will feel better after his procedure.

  7. Boy do we need some rain here
    Lily & Edward

  8. We hope the procedure has gone well (we just saw this)!! We cannot imagine that much rain in such a short period!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. Mom Kim here - yep, here in Topeka we are ready for a bit of dry weather too but have a chance for more rain later tonite. Hope Keith's procedure went well today and both of you are doing good now.

  10. Will be praying for Keith. Hope he is feeling better! We've not had much rain at all here, but appreciated the little we have had.

  11. Prayers, of course! So strange to go from blog to blog, reading of some in desperate need of rain, others under water. I guess that is the way of weather.


I love comments!
