...and it rained.


It rained pretty much all day today. I mean REALLY rained. At one point it got pretty stormy and I was getting a little freaked out. Up here on the hill the clouds look like you can touch them. The wind was all crazy and for a minute it looked like it was gonna get REAL bad. Luckily it didn't! We just got a ton of rain! I'm not complaining! Besides the fact that we need the rain because some portions of our yard look like straw I happen to love rainy days. Especially when it really cools it off from 100+ to low 70's, it clears the air, and we get beautiful sunsets like this:

My big camera's batter was down so I had to use the little guy. He does a pretty good job, but I always say humans cannot truly capture the beauty of a sunset. Painters get pretty close, but nothing compares to seeing it. It's been so hazy and hot lately that this is the first good sunset we have had in a while.
Remember when I told you about getting my Uppercase Living box stuck under the gate? Remember when I told you how I tried to pull it out and whacked my hand on the gate motor? Well I took a photo of my hand. (It was pretty hard to do, by the way.) It probably sounded like I was making a big deal out of nothing, but I am an A+ clutz. I do crap like this all the time. I will have a huge ugly bruise somewhere and Eric will say "What in the world did you do now!?!" I always have no answer because I can't remember. I whack a part of my body on something every single day.
This photo cracks me up. I forgot I took it until today. This was at Outback yesterday when we were waiting on our food. Incredible what will entertain this goofball. These are my tanning bed glasses if you can't tell. I haven't used them in forever, but thank goodness they were there! Much better than him trying to talk to the people in the booth behind us like he normally does. I love this little gap toothed boy! ;)
Well hopefully Eric's mom will come tomorrow! I have no idea what we are doing this weekend. Hopefully I will get a vehicle. I would love to go to the lake! We got the new taco in! (There is a photo of this in a previous post.) The other taco was ripped and we had to send it back to get a new one. I will be prepared this time with knee pads! LOL Hopefully no bloody lips! Mine finally healed!
Okay I'm going to go watch some 90210! I LOVE it!
NIGHT!!!!
LUV APRIL

It rained here all day yesterday, but the cooler temperatures were totally worth it! Love your pool. Ouch to your hand. I trip over stuff all the time, but it provides a good laugh for all.
And can Brodey get any cuter?

Did you know you can bind your blog into a book? That way you can keep up with pics and memories for Brodey on the blog and make a virtual scrapbook thing out of it. Here is the website.
