The storm clouds rolled away and there was no more rain.
The whole world was just fantastically green!!
Charles installed the snap on hose connections that came in the mail via an inviting TV ad, and I cut the handkerchief lawn in the back garden. This is a man sized handkerchief lawn, - not like the front one that is dainty and has a little tatted lace edging around it.
The newly planted grass said thank you for the rain and all the great fertilizer it brought with it out of the sky (Charles tells me this is so) and also for the sun that is making all the plants smile.
The people I met on the street while grocery shopping, too, - they were all smiling and cheerful, and only one person said to me "Oh, you just wait, - we'll all be complaining that it's too hot soon enough"!!! I hate to admit that she is probably right.
I went to the pharmacy to buy sympathy cards and a birthday present, and to pick up three one inch cane tips that Charles had ordered for his three legged stool. Alas, - only two came in. He will have to wait. Or sit lopsided on his three legged stool.
I found a pretty straw hat for a birthday present though, all floppy and romantic.
It's been a lovely day, and now it is almost Happy Hour, I still have some meat balls in barbecue sauce to warm up for supper and Doc Martin is on TV tonight. What more could a girl ask for......
