Grateful for a pretty good weekend (leaving aside the flooding fun Sunday evening ;)

     I noticed on my drive to and from church that the corn is getting just HUGE! Silks and tassels and a lot of it shoulder-height already. Can't wait for fresh local corn on the cob... *starts drooling*

     Feels good to finally get an art project done after all this computer mess of late (though with what I've lost, I'm severely limited right now). And a nice excuse to do a little venting. I've already made avatars for all the other seasons, after all!

     Also grateful for some decent progress with 'Resurrection.' Sure, I'd hoped to get farther, or even finish it, but--there was the parade down my street and hordes of noisy firetrucks that rather disrupted any attempt at focus on Saturday night. Then, on Sunday, glancing over to see floodwater down the side of my room when I'd checked my closet an hour or so earlier to find it dry as dust--that was a bit of a distraction for a while too! But between distractions and the fact that it's July, I'm grateful for every single paragraph I can get down, believe me!

My goodness, there must have been a lot of rain for it to flood so much in so short a time. It seems that between the flooding and your icon, you just can't win!

Have I mentioned that I love fresh, raw corn on the cob? Yum! I hope you enjoy it when the time comes.

I think it was the fact that there were three storms in a row that afternoon/evening, and by the third it was just too much at once. =P

Yes, you have! Someday I'll have to try it raw...

How bad was the flooding? Your must have gotten so hard down pour.
Glad to hear you are still making progress with Resurrection.

Hope you get so dry days soon.

It was the fact there were three storms in a row that passed right over--the first one was when I was on the phone with you. (And the rain Saturday didn't help either.)

Thanks! And yes, hopefully two whole days before there's rain in the forecast again. It actually got into the lower 60s tonight--it's been a long time!

After my little panic attack yesterday was over, I managed to get another 17 pages written. And it sucks about the flooding in your apartment. Is it because of a lot of rain or a broken pipe?

And thank you for allowing me to acquire this icon. It sums up my feelings very well. *grin*

I need to learn to read the other comments first. LOL It's rough when you get one storm right after another. We didn't see much flooding but the farmers' fields sure took a beating when we had our string of storms through here in May and the beginning part of June.

Ooh, congrats on the writing progress! Glad the scare didn't slow you down. =)

I'm thinking I like the drought years better. ;) Few blood-sucking bugs then too.

Glad you're enjoying the icon!
