Appreciate Those Rainy Days

Everyone loves a beautiful sunny day. Not to mention the clear, bright blue Carolina sky that we enjoy so much in these parts. But throw some rain into the forecast and everyone gets depressed and upset. Well lets think about it a minute. If it weren't for the rain our ecosystem would totally be non-existent. Our environment would just dry up. Our wells would run dry and our drinking water would run out. Not to mention what it would do to our newly planted vegetable gardens, fruits and how it would impact the animals and our way of life as we like to indulge ourselves. We have experienced droughts here in our area and it was not fun. So remember when the good Lord blesses us with some rain, consider it one of his many gifts like the sunshine and just enjoy your day!

Spring Cleaning

The beautiful weather we are having lately makes me want to rearrange my livingroom and dust all the trappings of home. Every Spring I raise the windows turn on my music and get busy. I roll up the carpets and take them outside and let them sun awhile. Then, I move my rocking chairs and slide my couch into a new position near the fireplace. I guess there are only so many ways to move everything around. The new placement of the couch satisfies my husband, so I guess thats a good thing. By the end of the day, when all the dust settles and all the furniture has found a new place, we sit down to enjoy the evening. Women of yesteryear did their housework on a daily basis. I bet they didn't need a whole day to rearrange their parlors or sitting rooms. Each day was tasked out for a certain chore. I wonder what my great, great grandma would have done on a day like today?
