Any other time, having rain, hail and thunder keep me awake off and on all night would result in a bit of grumbling on my part. Walking Speck in the rain, when the wind is blowing like crazy and the temp feels like 37º might bring about a few complaints . . though the biggest complaint would be that the goofy human on the other end of the leash didn’t think to check the weather and didn’t bring a coat. Heck . . wasn’t it just last week the temps here were hovering around 100º? .
When I look out the window, this is what I see . . dark clouds and rain. I’m not complaining and I’m not grumbling. Central Texas needed rain so badly that I feel that I should be out there dancing while thanking God that I’m shivering in the rain. The wild fires have been horrible in this area and worse in surrounding areas. I have no idea how much rain is needed and no doubt, what we’re getting in one or two days will not be sufficient rainfall but it’s a start and any amount is greatly appreciated by the residents here I’m sure.
And, where else can you live and have waffles shaped like your state?
Probably nowhere but Texas and even if your state has it’s own waffle maker, I’ll bet Texas is better! 🙂 How’s that for joining the home team and falling in love with Texas? Vince and I were talking driving here about how many homes have the Texas flag flying and the Lone Star plastered on their gates, their bird houses, their home fronts, their mail boxes . . it’s everywhere! It’s my own fault but I couldn’t even remember what the Missouri flag looks like til Vince reminded me. Most Texas residents, especially in the rural areas, seem to have lots of love, pride and dedication to their home state. I think we’re going to love it here!
