Hey! That was mean!

So last night I get home, decide it is nice enough to do my one hour of gardening and then have a nice swim.

Got all set, went out and pulled weeds and shoveled dirt and  finished off an area that took three bags of mulch to cover.  Took more than an hour, and worked up a good healthy sweat (read: was drenched.) Looked at what is left and think it is really do-able by the weekend.

Cleaned up the gardening mess and headed for the pool.


No matter how foolish I am for a nice swim, I know not to go anywhere near the water when I hear thunder.

So, I went in the house and worked on the secret fiber project instead.

While I was glad to work on that project, I was very disappointed to not get my cooling, relaxing swim.

I was also disappointed to not get any rain.  Just rumbling thunder.

That was mean, Mother Nature.  I did the work, I should get the reward.

    1. Ok … I’m going to say it loud and proud … but as your blogging friend I will understand if you don’t comment on my next project.

      …… …… …… . . . .
      . . . . I’m laughing like a drain here!

      I’ve never seen you pout before, and the image I have inside my tiny brain cell is the most funny thing I’ve seen in days.

      Aww … love you OOoooooodles Salpal. You are a total tonic ~ Cobs. x

    1. It’s not right. If it must thunder, then we should get a humdinger of a storm with lightening and deluges and then a clear sky so I can swim, lol.

    1. Today I made up for it – I started working int h last bit of garden, but it was earlier than normal, and it was in direct sun,which I am supposed to avoid, so I did very little, then went around back and cleaned the pool and soaked for a few minutes. Still in the dun, but cooler, and I wore my long sleeved bathing shirt and a hat. So once my legs were in the water, I felt like I was behaving as far as ultraviolet light goes. And once I was wet and cool, I went back indoors. I will work on the gardening tomorrow evening when that side of the house is in the shade.

        1. You know, I would fancy a holiday in Dartmoor, and would love to help you with your weeding for maybe half an hour. I truly don’t like weeding, but it would be fun to do with someone else, lol. Then could we go splashing in a brook someplace?

          1. I need to get into the groove for weeding and I haven’t found it this year 😦 If you come to UK do put a visit to us on your itinerary – Dartmoor is wonderful – I won’t even make you do that half hour weeding 🙂

          2. Someday I want to come to the UK and see every nook and cranny. But I am not sure when that will ever be. I have so many blog friends from there, I would need months to go see all the places you all talk about and that I must see. 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
