Rain, Rain, Go Away...Come Again Some Other Day...

Never made it to the falls to walk. Was hoping to be able to do it every weekend but the weather hasn't cooperated. It started raining well over a week ago and hasn't stopped. It hasn't been continuous or hard but with every day predicting 80-100% chance I just didn't want to get down the falls and have to walk back up in the rain. If it were July or August I wouldn't mind but it is still a little chilly out to be walking in the rain. Clear skies are predicted for this Sunday so hopefully I'll be able to do it then. I've invited a friend to join me so we will see if she comes through.

Still haven't received pics from my daughter of our trip down there. She's been having Internet problems off and on and it seems when it is on she is too busy to set down and send them. She will eventually and I'll share them when she does.

One nice thing with all this rain is that the leaves are on the trees now. There wasn't a leaf to be seen weekend before last and now they all have them. So things are starting to get green again on the mountain. I know it has been all the rain we've had but the bad thing is that my yard needs mowing really bad. Can't do it in the rain so it will just have to wait.

I just finished reading Deception Point by Dan Brown and it as a good one too. I've either read it before or it was turned into a movie and I saw the movie. But which ever it was, even though I remembered the basic plot I didn't remember most of the things that happened or who the "bad guy" was.

My durn dogs!! They started growling and boofing early this morning and wouldn't let me sleep. I wasn't ready to get up yet but they relented so I couldn't sleep. I just let them back in and the little boy went back upstairs and back to bed. I think when I'm finished here I'll go upstairs and bounce on the bed so he can't sleep. Pay backs are hell.

Eating has been ok. Not good or bad. I haven't gotten off the pounds I put on yet but at least there's no more creeping on.

You'd of laughed at me last week when the guy came to install my DSL. Lazy ole me wasn't lazy that day. He was supposed to be here between 8:00 and 10:00. By 10:00 I had two loads of laundry done, the dishes washed and put away, the sweeper run and showered. Actually the shower came first just in case he came at 8:00 but he didn't make it until 10:00.

Have a great weekend out there in blog-land.

Hey, you may have stumbled onto the best house-cleaning motivational tool yet! Pretend there's company coming! :)

Glad you're maintaining. The pounds will drop off when you're able to move about some more!

I do the same thing when someone is coming to fix something. I get up way too early, clean way too much, and get ready hours before they are ever going to show up. It's a "syndrome" I'm quite sure.

"Boofing" - my dog does that...I always wondered what to call it - now I know!

Hope it clears up for you soon!

What a funny picture that puts in my head. You bouncing on the bed so the dog can't sleep. (o: Funny you. I have 3....three...pounds that I can't get off for the life of me. Makes me crazy. I managed to loose 40, but in 3 months I can't loose the 3 I have put back on. If I could only get control of my weekends that might help (o: I switched to fat free milk. I refuse to buy more Smuckers peanut butter. I switched to a coffee creamer that has only 25 calories and no fat. I walk 3 or 4 times a week. Sorry... just a rant to a fellow WW. Wish I could walk to the falls with you (o:

Send some of that rain here - we've been in a drought for a long time and had a very long dry fall during the winter months - I think we got snow only a handful of times, and can't remember what rain sounds like. Vee at www.veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

I was wondering how you were fairing on your mountain with the weather. I kinda figured since you are my neighboring state that you were dealing with this continuous rain!

I read Deception point the other week....still have to read Angels and Demons (although I have it at the house ready to read)

I know what you mean. Everytime I'm ready to get going, its one nice day and the next is bad weather.

I just realized, we both lost 70 lbs! Kuddos!!!!
