Life as I know it is not a source of wonder. It just involves a lot of dirt.

MORE Wild Weather
It just won't stop.
Things had finally started to dry and out of the blue we were hit with another storm today. I went into the shower to wash away all the sweat from working out in the garden for 20 minutes and when I got out 10 minutes later the skies had turned dark. After rushing out to go and pick up the kids from school we had to wait another 20 minutes for the hail to stop. A quick trip driving home and the hail started again.
It is still raining too hard for me to go out and check the damage, but Katie felt brave enough to run out in a lull and gather up the hail from the trampoline. She also must have been cold since the temperature dropped over 10 degrees in about as many minutes.
Silly kid. I took the pictures from the relative safety of the house.
Eeek! That lightning was just way too close for comfort when we live in a yard with the highest trees in the neighbourhood. Time to power down the computer.
20 minutes later...
Oh for pity's sake! The rain stops, the sun comes out and then it starts to hail again.
I am a stay-at-home mom, piano teacher, dog lover and avid sock knitter. You are likely to see me knitting at ring side at a dog show, watching my daughter do junior handling. The piano is just not that portable or I would probably try to pack that along too.
