So once again I feel very fortunate to have gotten the mowing done Sunday as Monday was almost an all day rain event, once again submerging large areas of our property. When I got home I wasted little time before reconnecting the sump pump I have in the back yard of the chicken area. It does a decent job of pumping the water to the big drainage canal on our property line. That area that I elevated with top soil and sod is still well above the water level, I guess I need to expand that area as time, motivation and money allows.
I got the newest book in the World of Warcraft series, Before the Storm. It is timed with the release of a new expansion to the game I have loved for over a dozen years, which happens August 14th. I am trying to finish it before the game is released as it gives the back story to the game. At this point I am around halfway done so I should be able to accomplish that goal.
Last night I was reading on the loveseat. It was storming outside so Elsa came running to me for protection. We have developed a technique for sharing the small piece of furniture, even when I’m laying on it where I prop my feet on the back so Elsa can jam herself in between my rear end and the arm rest. After finishing a chapter my eyes were heavy. Cindy snapped this cute picture during that time period.
I just felt really wiped out. Maybe it’s from the emotional weekend with all of the Lucy problems. I haven’t been sleeping all that great either. My latest trend is waking up 60-90 minutes before the alarm and just rolling around in anticipation of it going off. Anticipation may be the wrong word as I am certainly not excited once Alexa starts playing the wake up tone.
