I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

RAIN~When Is Enough, Enough?

Ok, I just have to say, I love a dark, gloomy, wet and rainy day. I could take this weather for weeks at a time. Fires in the fireplace, hot cocoa, staying inside and in pjs all day, that is pure heaven for me. So then you may ask yourself, "what is she doing living in the desert where the sun shine 352 days out of the year!!??" And I will answer, "I have no idea!"
These are pictures of three of the parks in our sub-division that I took today. I ventured out with our daughter and grand children, and of course thought I had better share this with my blogging buddies. The above is one park with bar b que, picnic tables and a volleyball court made of sand. Sand you ask? It's there, or at least it used to be.

You have heard the phase, "build it and they will come?" I guess that applies to ducks too. I have no idea where they came from, but here they are.



A smaller park near by. The ground is saturated and the rain water has no where to go. I would guess the grass underneath won't be around long.
With the leaves off the trees and all the rain as well as the grey skys, baby it's cold out there.


You can never have enough of the liquid gold and we are suppose to get more. I don't know where it will go, maybe I will take a picture of us in a boat going down stream.....wouldn't that be fun??!!

Those are probably Canada Goose or Geese - they are there like the other tourists who left the north for the winter. lol That was so nice that they have a pond to live in, planned or otherwise.

Stay dry Char - we have a blizzard coming our way by Sunday night and Monday. 25 cms. of snow. Now which would you rather have.

Hi Char,
As you can see, I am at Pauline's in Brawley, Ca. We will be heading to Prescott on Monday by way of Yarnell Hill....it has been wet and wild here, too. No ducks, tho, just mud! More coming on Tuesday! You know how I like these days, but it is not so good for the lettuce and citrus growers. They can't get the trucks into the fields to pick....
Monday we will be headed into the snow....where our son is, there is about 5" of snow and the kids are thrilled to pieces and sent me a picture of the snowman they made. I thought this was what we were trying to escape from...hahaha!
Take care...Jil HPS, too!
