It has rained here in Maryland for 7 straight days. Oh, we’ve had a little bit of sunshine here and there, but I am just beginning to get a little weary of it all. You know, the dampness, the soggy trails, the frizzy hair. Well, maybe not for you, but my hair and rain is never a good combination.
Driving home today in a downpour, I was envisioning getting out of the car with all my bags, in the pouring rain. But miraculously, the rain stopped as soon as the car stopped.
After putting away everything and making a fuss over the dog, I got changed and headed out for a walk.
When I got outside, I noticed the color of the sky and that the sun was beginning to come out. So I went back inside for the camera.
In the back yard, the sky remained gray as the clouds cleared behind me.
It was simply beautiful.
That’s the garden in the center there, and it looks very small in this picture.
The blue of the sky and the sun is beginning to take over here.
Earthworms were all over the trail, squiggling around and doing their thing. Sorry if you don't like worms.
By the time I got here, the sun was bright.
The trail was a mess to navigate though, so I decided to quit. Sometimes I give up too easily but I’m going to console myself with the fact that it was a long week and I’m just plain tired today.
There’s my little friend waiting for me alongside the trail up there. Do you see him?
I decided to cut through the lawn on the way back.
All this rain has made the earth here so rich and lush with green and it’s so beautiful.

The search continues for a vacation place but I’m so blessed to be able to go on vacation in the first place, so no complaints.
Lots of drama on American Idol in the ending 5 minutes of last night’s show. The look on Haley’s face, not only of disbelief, but of disgust, perhaps, at having been voted out.
Tonight I’m watching a movie that my friends at Netflix mailed to me. On my laptop tonight, I’m showing ‘Knight and Day’, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It looks fast-paced and action packed. Woot.
My husband changed around some of the furniture in the living room yesterday and I love it. Even if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t really care anyway. It’s just furniture.
Fish sticks for dinner tonight. We’re true gourmets here, dontcha know.
Hope your weekend is a good one. Until later then . . .
