A Birthday Present for Dave

Let me start by saying...

Happy Birthday Dave!!!

And to celebrate, our dear Mother Nature provided us just what he's been asking for - RAIN!

We went from 8 months of draught to a week of flooding this spring, then immediately back into draught. So a nice heavy rain yesterday was just what my hubby was asking for. The good news is, we have a chance of rain again today. Bring it on!

And that's not all Dave got for his birthday. I made his favorite chocolate cake, of course. Gotta spoil him now and then. My journey wouldn't be nearly as wonderful without the support of a loving partner.

To many more wonderful years! Now how about some of that chocolate cake?

Lucky you. Send some of that stuff a few miles south to College Station, would ya? My yard is still bone dry...

Sharli - We got a bit of a sprinkle this morning too. We'll take what we can get :)

Chile - I'll bet your garden appreciated it!

Anonymous - Yeah, Dave called me from work yesterday and asked if it rained here. It had, of course, but not much on campus, and nothing further south. Looks like there's still hope as rain is still showing up on the radar...

Funny this...my b-day was the 2nd. I wanted rain for my b-day (I had asked my hubby for it before the rains)and we got a little for two days in a row. I was happy to have gotten anything as dry as it has been. Amazing.
