The only outing for Pheebs and I today was a short trip to Bayfield’s Foodland grocery store this morning and that was it.  No coffee, no muffin.  Our expected rains began shortly after noon and at time of publishing this tonight it hasn’t stopped.  Not a hard rain but a steady non-stop rain.  Photos are from our Wednesday morning drive through the Hay swamp.



Spent the biggest part of my day tucked into the cozy warm corner of our sunroom reading.  One might think I would spend a lot of time on the computer on these cold damp rainy days but not being a Gamer or a You Tuber person the majority of my computer time centers around my blog and if I’m not tinkering with that then I’m mostly off doing something else.

  1. I would trade you in a heart beat for that weather. We already hit 100 f and tomorrow looks like maybe 102.

    1. Yes I can understand that trade and if we were sitting at a hundred degrees I would gladly switch to cooler wet weather for a few days as well.

  2. Meanwhile, we're having spring heat wave out here in Saskatchewan! Up to 26C (79F) yesterday, and they're calling for 28C (83F) tomorrow and Saturday. Gorgeous July weather!

  3. Yup we got the rain, bonus is your flowers and plants will love it.

  4. Yah pretty crappy weather up here too. Think of how much we'll enjoy the sun again when it comes back. Enjoy reading.

  5. You can spend your time coming up with more great Groaners!
