I know Mother's Day has passed by, but I wanted to share this note I got from my 18 year-old daughter. This one was pretty amazing (not that the other cards and notes were not).
She wrote it in pencil, so I hope you can read it. I darkened the print as best I could too.
The all-day rain we got yesterday, finally stopped some time during the night. The highway flooded, just as we suspected, flowing more water in our direction.
I almost thought I was at the island, the rain sounded like waves of water crashing throughout the day.
We have tadpoles growing in staying water. The kids thought that was just way cool. As for me? It painted a picture of the demise of our garden bounty this season.
I may need a row boat to get to the barn and garden today. Then again, my garden may have floated off to lands unknown too. Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow and all of the holiday weekend.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
I'm going to find a dry chair and sit on the porch in my pajamas.
