April Showers Bring May Flowers
So what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims!
Oh man, everyone thought they were hot stuff in the first grade with that joke right there. Who am I kidding, I still think it’s funny.
It has been raining for what feels like forever. Mid-month we experienced 10 straight days without precipitation. Me and the hubs got so much work done around the yard, I wanted to open windows and start on some spring cleaning. But this rain does not make me want to clean. I’d rather curl up under a blanket with coffee and book.
I really dislike the fact I have to get out in it. It’s just so… wet.
But the thing that’s bothering me the most about all this rain? I know there’s going to be a massive explosion of weeds in my yard. The dandelions will be out in full force. I can just feel it. And I hate nothing more than weeding flowerbeds and crawling around the front yard digging up little yellow flowers. And what’s up with the evil cousins with those prickly leaves? I despise those suckers.
The rain is supposed to subside tomorrow which will make my trip to Churchill more pleasant. The weatherman says Thursday and Friday are supposed to be clear too. Saturday though – Derby Day – scattered thunderstorms. Really? And Sunday. And Monday. There goes the weekend and the rain-free celebration.
I think I need to come to the realization that if my other flower bed is gonna get done, I’m gonna get wet.
