Today at my workout, another attendee made the remark she's sick of the rain. We've had lots of days recently with gray to pouring heavily to thunder and lightening.
But I'm not on board with that. Not so long ago, our state was under a huge drought. Some reservoirs were empty. Crops were affected. Some towns had no watering of lawns. Ours mandated two days a week in the evening. Handwatering was okay.
I never want to go through that scare again. Never.
Water is life. Without it, there is no beauty.
And on those gloomy rainy days, there's alternative activities. I love to plop on the couch with a good book, something to drink, and maybe a bag of Cheetoes. Or find a good movie and stitch to my heart's content.
I know the adora-poos aren't having fun because they can't chase the squirrels or bark at the runners. Instead, they get lots of mom time. I say that's a good thing.
Just in case you need a fun book to indulge in while rain pitter patters, here's a great deal: the Murder & Mayhem boxed set which includes my humorous romantic mystery, Temporarily Employed:
When the police determine there's more to the death of a former Buy Rite employee, Detective Allan Charles Wellborn steps in to lead the investigation. Overly dedicated, always perfect, he puts his job first, even if doing so ultimately hurts the one he loves.
Can the killer be found before Hattie's time is up?
