|My zucchini, squash and cucumbers|
I used to hate it when it rained, especially when I was little. Now I really enjoy it, especially if no thunder and lightning is involved! It has been raining here in South Alabama since Saturday morning. I just love how everything just springs to life after it has gotten a good rain. It gives you a chance to get some things done in the house that you have been neglecting. It also gives you time to just sit and watch and appreciate everything.
I don't have any rain barrels (YET) so I set out a bunch of containers and have been watering everything in my greenhouse with the rain water and all the plants are loving it!
The only downside is that I have three antsy kids.
But, we have been doing lots of fun stuff though like making croutons, making embroidery floss bracelets, playing legos, and watching the hummingbirds.

My little diva chickens are not happy about the rain either. They do not like to get wet, yet they don't like staying cooped up. Every time I check on them and lift the lid, it's like they want to run out but they don't want to get wet so they just stay in. Did I mention I am down to 3 :(
Hope everyone is staying dry and you all have a wonderful week!
