I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, but it’s raining here again. In fact, it’s been raining here for days–weeks even! Last night, on Facebook, someone asked, “So how many inches of rain have we gotten during the past weeks?” Another answered, “Twenty-three feet!” That’s not true, but if certainly feels that way! At any point in our yard, water will cover your shoes… Our well water is brown again… Joy, joy!
Let’s talk about something more fun, shall we? Something fun, like ice cream! Here’s this week’s Monday Quiz, hosted by Heather @ Acting Balanced :
1. July is National Ice Cream month – are you celebrating?
Perhaps, just a little. I’m not supposed to eat ice cream because of its sugar, however I found some pretty good ice cream treats that are sweetened with Splenda. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
2. What is your favorite rainy day activity?
Reading and napping, and I’ve been doing more than my fair share of both lately!
3. What is the one book from High School that you remember reading most? Why?
I remember trying to read Tess of the D’urbervilles and not understanding very much of the book, at the time. I don’t remember what I made on the test over the book, but it probably wasn’t a very good grade since I didn’t finish the book!
4. Have you ever visited Charleston, SC?
Yes, we have visited Charleston, SC twice, and I enjoyed being there very much. I loved visiting the aquarium, taking a carriage ride through the city, and touring the retired aircraft carrier, located there. We visited a nearby beach, and did some shopping in the historical district, too. By the way, I’d love to go back sometime!
My question for you:
5. Have you ever taken a carriage ride? If so, where?
Our neighbors, who happen to be our two oldest grown children and their families, left Thursday afternoon, each going on separate mini vacations! Ed and I had the entire farm to ourselves for most of the weekend. We sat around and watched it rain! Fortunately, our children seemed to find a little better weather on vacation, than they left behind at home!
Thank goodness for Saturday’s visit from youngest son, Brad, and his wife, Jennifer! We had a great time visiting with them. They ate lunch and supper with us before moving on to spend the night with Jennifer’s grandparents.
Sunday was pretty uneventful. Just more rain… If this keeps up, we may need to look into purchasing a small boat! One family of vacationers has returned. The other will be returning today. Monday, around here, is business as usual. Wet business as usual…
