All this rain we've been having around here has made me sleepy, so that's what I've been doing, a lot, sleeping. The sun finally came out in the afternoon yesterday, and it's been nice today; it would be nice if it stayed that way for awhile.
As if it's not bad enough that everything is totally saturated, all the rain has also caused all the creeks and rivers to rise. So now, every drop of water that comes pouring down will be very slow to drain away; there's nowhere for it to go. I crossed over a drainage ditch just outside of Lexa where the water is right under the bridge and the fields on both sides are covered in water the ditch will no longer hold. I noticed a backhoe crew working near the bridge so I hope they are keeping a close eye on it.
Zach was finally able to return to school on Monday. That child lost about 5 lbs the 4 days he was home sick with that stomach bug. He's got his appetite back now so he'll be gaining that back again in no time.
That's about all the news around these parts for now,,, well,,,except for Beans giving the baby kittens a hair cut to "cool the kitties cause dem was hot",,, but we won't go in depth about that right now, she doesn't like to talk about it.
