I took some time off two weeks ago.
I didn't do anything in particular..just a blogging break.
This is what we had four evenings in a row.

You can see my gutters overflowing
 even though the downspout seems to be working.

One and a half inches was not unusual.

You could cut the humidity with a knife..Very sultry.

It was a welcome break from the searing sun
 and having to water every day.
I'm beginning to feel like a mushroom.

We haven't had any rain since !
We really need it and this week looks pretty dry.

Things are never just right, are they . . .
Except for those times when we know . . .
just right
perfect blue
no humidity
gentle breeze
perfect temperature
then we know
just right

Certainly is a weird summer, at least where I am. I don't think I'll be seeing any brown lawns this year!

Not to be a buttinsky, but might it not be a good idea to get an extension on your downspout so all that water doesn't soak in so close to your basement? That's assuming you have a basement. If you don't, no problem!

Glad you had some rain for a change. It's always nice to skip watering the flowers!

Missy, We got some rain..may not be the right amount but at least it did rain. If this week is as cloudy as they are saying...that too helps with the flowers and lawn. IT's to be in the 70's so our AC is off. Blessings for a comfortable enjoyable week. xoxo,Susie
