The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

needing rain.

I like rain.
For two reasons now instead of one.
If it rains, I can pretty much bet good money that Chad won't get called out to a fire because the ground is too wet to burn and God will put it out if it does start burning.
Second reason is a little more green - I spent the morning with Dad B at the local community garden with some Master Gardeners (hi mom...master gardener shout out! - but these were not my mom, sadly.) learning how to make a rain barrel! I came home with a rain barrel ready to use and a home owner's association that says I can't use it. Ha. I will paint it to match the house, stick it in the back, and dare them to say anything. Or just wait until we move. But still...what a great way to save money and water our flowers!
