Well guess what happened today! It was a BEAUTIFUL day....for a little while. Then once again it was same song THIRD verse. Good grief. You know this is going to make the mosquitoes terrible this year. So West Niles will be bad and heart worms for the animals will be bad. Oh, I guess you have figured out that it rained again here today. We got almost two inches, it was about 1 3/4", but it came down hard and fast too. THEN on top of everything else we got hail, and I do mean hail. But we were the lucky ones, everyone around us had anywhere from marble to tennis ball size hail and it busted windows like crazy. We just had enough hail to make it look like snow, probably ruin our roof, and was loud and honestly kind of cool. But I like storms. I just don't like the damage it causes.
I know this is not that bad, I know lots of people have a lot more than this, or at least what this picture shows, but it was a pretty good storm. We had one wave come through that did the hail storm and then about 15 minutes later another big wave came through and dropped the rain on us. The tomatoes in the garden are just so water logged, they probably won't make it this year. At least the hail didn't wipe them out!!!! That's something to be thankful for!
It was still a good weekend. After the storm passed we went to town to meet my dad at Mazzio's Pizza for lunch. He was very hungry for pizza, it is his normal Sunday dinner (?) and my mom was not feeling well. So he left her and met us there. It was so nice. Then my mom's cousin came by and ate a bite with us and saw the baby. She just made over Allie (who wouldn't?) and it was so nice to visit with her. She was the maid of honor at my mom's wedding 50+ years ago, they have always been very close and I love her dearly. We are now planning a trip to Ft.Worth by train! So this has been a really nice weekend, the baby has been good, and we are truly blessed. Talk to you again soon.
