We also hoped to get some gardening done. We knew we would have a lot of weeding to do. Fitting it in between the rain showers and waves of steady rain was the trick.
We had just got started Saturday morning when the rain started, so we just kept going. We gave up after about an hour and a half, and managed to finish up Sunday morning without rain. We got a lot of trimming and cleaning out done.
Friday afternoon we took advantage of a break in the rain to get in a four mile walk.
Things looked brighter over there in Seattle, but the clouds hung heavy over Useless Bay.
Jill and the kids decided to come up Saturday and join us for an overnight. We all watched the Sounders match at 4:00 Saturday afternoon. Our team came from behind to pull out a draw in the last seconds. Yay!
There was even a ray or two of sunshine on Saturday afternoon.
After dinner we spent the evening playing games.
They left about 1:00 Sunday afternoon. We did some cleaning up and enjoyed some quiet time. I had time for another short walk, in light rain. A heron kept watch over the lagoon.
A marsh hawk tried to hide from me in a pine in the front yard of a cabin.
And these swelling cherry tree buds reminded me that spring is around the corner, even if the weather gods don't seem to know it.
The daylight lasted longer today, but it didn't matter here, with steady rain all day and on into the evening. We cleaned house and did laundry here at home today, and I went grocery shopping, did my half hour of physical therapy exercise, and spent 50 minutes on the stationary bike.
Tomorrow I might have to find another project to work on. It doesn't look like it will be gardening weather here any time soon.
