I awoke this morning to dull light and the sound of rain falling. This would explain why my joints were hurting all day yesterday. I was sitting here catching up on blogs I read, sipping coffee and wondering what I will do today.
The phone rang and I knew before I answered that it would be Pat (A View From The Edge). I read her post about heading west yesterday and she had included my little city in her itinerary. I left a comment (or two) about wondering if she would be gracing me with her presence. She will be here this afternoon!! I am excited to meet her. I feel like I should roll out the red carpet...... but I don't have one and it would get wet! Maybe I will go mop the store and spiff it up. I suddenly have new energy.
The good thing about rain is that it slows down the work on the pipe line and my tenants will be here longer. I am trying to look on the bright side. I planted some shrubbery yesterday and the slow steady rain will help establish those roots. The rain is good for my gardens........ who am I kidding, I just want to crawl back in the bed!
I am off to take advantage of the momentum that Pat provided with her call. Mop bucket.... here I come!
