Finally, the Rains End!
After a week of sometimes torrential downpours, the rains ended this afternoon.
Our lawn is in a dire need of a haircut.
Mushrooms are growing and much of our grass has gone to seed.
I am eager to resume my exercise of raking the cut grass. Not only does this exercise make me feel good, it helps reduce that extra five to ten pounds of fat I've been lugging around my waistline all winter.
Only problem right now is that the temperature is a suffocating 87 humid degrees. Feels like a sauna out there. Tomorrow the forecast is for cooler temps. However, I will go out after this blog post and try and get a little bit of good time exercise in today.
I could never live in Seattle or the Northwest where rain like last week is the norm. I slowly slip into lethargy and depression. I need sun. Lots of sun to keep my disposition happy and contented. That's why a place like Palm Springs is so attractive to me. However, I don't think I will ever permanently move there, I'm just too comfortable here at Casa Tipton-Kelly. I have too many "things" that I love and bring me comfort. Things I couldn't move to Palm Springs. But I will visit Palm Springs, that's for sure. Especially in the Wintertime!
I'm looking forward to Pat's visit this week. He arrives in Delaware on Wednesday. He will stay here for a few days and then we leave for Philadelphia this time next week for a week's stay in that comfortable city.
Now to see if I can rake some grass without getting soaked in sweat. Wish me luck!
