Really pouring rain all day. Oh yeah.
I was on a real high yesterday with all that gardening and itching to get back out there this morning but no such luck. Boo shucks.
Cabin fever set in big time and when the girls wanted to go for a walk anyway I jumped at the chance. We were just finished gearing up and friend and neighbour A dropped by to talk seeds so I waved the other three off:
and came back inside for coffee and cake- gotta love friends bearing cakes! We planted up our fragile friends- the specialty cucumbers that need a germinating soil temperature of 25-30 degrees. They have their own little plastic bag hot house in the glassed in verandah so fingers crossed.
The others arrived home and were saturated. Really drippingly soaked. And laughing fit to bust. When I questioned the seeming gross malfunction of their rain gear I was informed they didn't get wet from the rain but from jumping and dancing in the huge puddles. Of course. Seriously sometimes I doubt whether K chaperoning counts as adult supervision at all... I'm not the rainy day party pooper- it's just that if they wanted to go jump in puddles I would have suggested barefeet or sandals to save the boots for tomorrow. Much harder to sell barefeet or sandals to the teachers...
