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.
