I really had full intentions of blogging about our fantastic 5 days with Aunt Maxey in Austin...at least having a post up about one of the days... But the plan has changed. I am going to take pause and instead direct your attention to the true miracle we experienced today- our own little neighborhood bliss. Was it the 107 degree temps that we had today? No... no miracle there... more like a bit of H-E-double-hockey-sticks if you ask me. I am choosing to overlook the earlier scorching hours of the day and focus on the blissful raindrops that appeared in abundance late afternoon! That's right, folks'--- it rained!!!
I know. I am in shock still. And our yard? Well, let's just say I could almost here it shriek with glee too--- or perhaps that was just the cracks in the soil being filled with water. Sweet sweet relief indeed. My take is when a miracle like this happens you need to celebrate it and even better... make a party out of it! Have I mentioned how much I love our neighbors? Well, I do. Splashing fun in your skivvys? Sounds like a perfect way to soak up the rain!
I am really bummed that we didn't get a picture of them walking single file down the road in umbrellas.... it was very Abbey Road.
