Rainy Day

We had quite a big storm overnight, although I slept through it all.  A small chestnut tree was uprooted just up the road from here, blocking our route on Rick's morning walk.  Some rain came down too; Paul's favourite gardening shoes in the porch got soaked.  It's been raining on and off all day, the parched ground is just soaking it up.

I took advantage of the rainy day to finish sewing Rick's kennel.  It was quite a wrestling match with the sewing machine but the repairs are all complete, ready for his next expedition.

    1. Sun's out again here. No more rain forecast but cooler temperatures.

  3. Light showers here but that's all - not enough to do any good.

  4. Not enough rain for Cepes. When I got up yesterday (5 am) the lightning was still going on in the West. It was continuous, and very beautiful. At that hour I don't suppose many saw it. I had a blood test at 6 am.

    1. 6 am for a blood test? Wow, that's what I call an early start.

  5. Do tell Paul that the kennel is not a playground for him !
