Wet and Cold

Last week was not the best week. The Coke cooler blew the circuit in the store and I lost all the peaches I has so carefully preserved in the freezer for my son-in-law (sorry, Nick). The ice in the ice machine melted .......

Got all that cleaned up and made the necessary arrangements to have the Coke machine repaired. Walked into the kitchen and saw a puddle. A big puddle. In the midst of accusing the canine trio of a conspiracy that involved all three of them emptying their bladders in the same place, I saw that the water (or pee) had either traveled under the cabinets, or originated from somewhere beyond. I was genuinely hoping for urine, although not looking forward to cleaning it up. It was water coming from  a hole in the tank of the water heater.

The Pepsi machine outside has to be repaired, too. The weekend was just plain aggravating. One potential camper called 4 times before arriving and 3 times after arriving. Besides being directionally challenged, she was unprepared. She didn't have a hose to hook up to the water. Finally got her a loaner hose, then she couldn't get on-line and demanded to know if everyone in the park was skyping. It was around that time I discovered a puddle of water in the store floor .......

Be careful what you wish for. It was urine this time and not the canine variety. Human. From a child too old to be pulling such stunts. I decided then and there to lock up early. I fumbled around in the kitchen and made something barely edible and went bed.

I am determined to have a better week. We managed to get all the grass mowed before the rain hit us again, today. The cold front moving through has me dressed in winter fleece again. The furnace just turned on and I have it set at 63 .....

I am tired of being wet and cold!

It's been unseasonably cold in Central Texas also!! I have a sweat shirt on right now which is usually unheard of in April.

I was just thinking the same thing...tired of being tired, tired of the wacky weather, well, you know, it sounded better when you said it!

The bleeding weather is making every problem worse. Nothing is good when you are cold.

It was generally a mild winter for us but it is lasting forever. Late April and it's cold out today. No rain though which we really need.

Dagnabit - I just sent you an email saying I hoped all was well in your world, having missed this post.

Dang. Sorry to hear all of this. But maybe when it rains it pours and the sunshine is just around the cloud? Heck. I don't have any platitudes left for you sweetheart. It just seems to be one thing after another. The kid and the floor? THAT would be my proverbial straw. Right after I banned him forever.

Keeping you in my thoughts. I do hope Spring gets there soon for you. Your hard work and beautiful gardens are always a sight to behold and my favorite part of Spring blogging. :D

I'd say you have had your run of bad luck, and it's time for this weather to straighten out. Your resident camper sounds like a winner! Wishing you warmth and peace. Enough is enough.
