If you have read many blogs from Texas, you know it is hot here....sweltering hot with no rain and no relief, and very high humidity. Not any hotter than it usually gets, just a little earlier making for a longer, hotter summer than normal. I have refused to talk about the heat.....I walk away from any conversation and avoid anyone that wants to focus on the weather.....I just want to say, "Come on, people.....this is Texas and this is OUR summer"....it's the SAME thing every year, so why are people so very surprised. But we have been in the last few days as the rains have come...and they have chosen to stay a while bringing the heat down to below 90 degrees. It has been absolute heaven to watch the steady rain feed the plants and wash away the dust of the extreme heat and to see the wild life being replenished with water for their needs and survival.
The rain feeds my soul.....I have always loved how it looks, how it feels, and how I feel as well. I don't mind the lightening and thunder, as it never lasts very long. But this week we have hopes of rain every day which is so very unusual for a Texas July......and I know, I must be in heaven.
