We are so tired of the rain.
We tried to get outside this morning to begin the clean up after the latest big wind storm. We got the larger branches and boughs picked up, but the continuing squalls just kept marching across the March sky. It made me think of the opening lines to a John Denver song. "I'd rather be outside. Here I am inside, watching it rain".
I guess I should just put this album on the stereo and dance. Maybe that will take care of the itch to be working outside.
But it won't get the clean up done.
You can see how messy it is out there. The patio hasn't been dry enough to clean off for a month. Cedar tree cones and pollen and twigs have created a layer of goo. The cat refuses to walk on it.
We have been planning our days based on the weather forecasts. Weather Underground gives us current satellite maps of the immediate weather and the what's-coming-up-next weather. It's not pretty for the rest of today or tomorrow.
But Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and maybe part of Saturday, the sun is supposed to shine. We sure hope so. Wednesday we'll be working in our yard. Thursday we'll clean up the garden at the Whidbey cabin and Friday/Saturday we'll work in Jill's yard.
Oh please, let it happen.
