Last Saturday it rained all day, and the forecast called for rain all this week. But it was w-r-o-n-g. How great is that? Hot, sunny, and a bit muggy on Sunday, perfect for enjoying another day around the pool. And it sure wasn't wasted. The neighbors came over with 6 kids. What fun!
Then, as predicted, the winds began to blow in the evening. (But not until our church picnic was very nearly over -- wasn't that considerate?) It was a fierce windstorm, knocking down trees and causing power outages and phone outages. Nothing but inconvenient for us, and only a little inconvenience at that.
Leaves fell like crazy. It's not fall yet, but they fell anyway, carpeting the lawn and filling up the pool. Tom spent more than an hour scooping the worst of the mess out of the water before letting the automatic cleaner and filter take over. He's so diligent and patient that way. Me? I was crying the blues...it'll never look nice again! But guess what? I was w-r-o-n-g. The pool is as pristine as ever and we're still swimming. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were gorgeous days. Today...fabulous.
AND the forcaste says we'll have beautiful weather through Sunday. Here's hoping it isn't w-r-o-n-g!
