Gloomy Sunday, Rainy Monday

All day long it has looked like rain, but none yet. This has been a quiet gloomy sort of Sunday. Cloudy with a little breeze blowing. Anyhow, I have piddled around wasting time, doing nothing much of anything.

I picked up an old picture album and turned through the pages, pulling out two special pictures that made me smile. Both are pictures of Poppy and our Granddaughter Madison. Madison is sixteen now and driving. But back then whatever Poppy was talking about sure had her attention...



A few years later down at the pond trying to catch a fish. Those little legs! Now she swims and works as a lifeguard during the summer months...




Good Monday morning! We woke up at 4:30 this morning to the sound rain...a much needed rain. What a good morning this would have been to roll over and go back to sleep, but not so. Poppy had to be at work at 6:00.

On my way up the path yesterday, heading toward town, I noticed the Goldenrods beginning to open. Lots of Goldenrods. I was worried they had been trampled down or mowed over.

Even on a gloomy day these bright yellow flowers bring a little sunshine...




and Black-eyed Susans...



A vase of these flowers on the front porch makes me happy. Looks like the rain is here for a couple of day so picking flowers will have to wait.

Okay, time to get busy. With it wet and raining, I have no excuse for not getting the dust wiped off everything inside this house. Yuk! I'd rather plow a field!

Thank you for visiting.

Love,
Henny

  1. I agree on the dusting. I hate cleaning house I would rather do about anything than clean house. The only thing I hate worse it being in the hot humid miserable day. Hope you have a great week. Love you

  4. I love the flowers!
    It was house cleaning day around here today-dusting, vacuuming, cleaninf bathrooms, laundry. I'm so glad my husband and I work together on this. I hate housework.

    1. I used to enjoy keeping house and got more done done before I retired. You really do have a great husband. Looks like he helps you with everything.

  5. Hey Mommy! You'd rather plow a field. :) I loved catching up on your recent posts. Maddie sure was looking at Poppy! It's funny you posted that! We have a copy of that picture, and Michaela was just looking at it yesterday! I love you! Your gur.

    1. Hey Lynn! I really had rather plow a field, and with a mule. That is weird that Michaela was looking at that same picture yesterday. I love you too!

  6. I know about the dusting! The aggravating thing about housework generally is that it is only noticed when it's not done. Not fair!

    1. That is so true! And, it is always the woman who looks bad if the house is a mess.

  7. Those are a couple of sweet old photos, well really not that old are they:)
    I'm with you on the dusting.
    I like it to rain once a week or so just so I don't have to do any watering:)

  8. Hey Karen! Thank you. We had been a while without rain and really needed. But four and a half inches in 24 hours!! That's the way it goes!
