Rain Dreams

Raindrops meeting at the ditch.  Raindrops falling onto the neighbors' fields gathered and rolled down the hill into the ditch.  Other raindrops fell gently through the treetops that line our portion of the ditch.  Don't you love the little circles of celebration dances they stir up when they meet?  Sounds like a fun adventure with friends, right?  Falling onto corn leaves, trampolining to the ground underneath them.  Grabbing the hands of your friends, and racing downhill.  A few of you decide to soak in the atmosphere and stay, but that's okay because there are so many of you and everyone is having a great time!  Your parachuting friends who passed up the field in seach of tall tree leaves float gently towards the ditch, waiting for you.  When you meet, you high five each other and do a little celebration dance.  Great times, great times!
Now, raindrops in waiting, raise your hands if you would like to make my backyard your travel destination :)  Pretty please?? Heck, if you have spelunking fans among you, they could even dive straight down into those big cracks in our yard. 
Come on over, guys!  Can't wait to see/hear/feel you falling from the sky!

Yesterday we were assured of a "chance of showers"...Before we even got up for the day, we could hear the rain. Our "chance of showers" netted us 7/10 of an inch! I was grateful that the hay was all stacked.

Hugs and loves rightbackatcha, Amanda!
Celeste, glad the hay didn't suffer...was 7/10 enough to make any difference? Hope it helped. It's been almost a week since I wrote this blog entry. It still hasn't rained. I hope at least some of the corn crops will weather this okay, since the ones around here ended up being pretty staggered (some are tossling, some are about waist high, etc.).
