We got 1.6 inches of rain yesterday, in my rain gauge, and another two tenths or so today. We may get more tonight and tomorrow, so we shall see what happens but I think this rain will help the grass nicely, or at least I really hope so! I do have some work tomorrow at least!

The thing though, however, is that I only have 4 yards with an extra one maybe, planned for tomorrow, so I am not sure what will happen with the grass as it doesn’t just get green overnight but I am thinking over the next few days or so it should start getting green and growing again.

We finally got some decent rain, and by decent, I mean that we got over an inch! I measured 1.5 inches in my rain gauge today and will check it again in morning to see if it went up any more. I am personally hoping it does, as we can use it badly.

I got two battery packs today, since I had a 50 dollar gift card from the phone. One is a 12,000MAH with two USB ports, and the other is 4000MAH with one port and a LED flash light. I ended up paying only 8 dollars for the two of them so quite a good deal indeed!

Another day of nothing at all for me to do, and I can’t say that it was due to the rain last night as we didn’t get much at all. Of all the rain on the map, we had gotten under a tenth of an inch, which may as well have been nothing at this point.

I did get some writing done last night though which makes me quite happy. I finished Chapter 8, and tonight I may do some work on Chapter 9 and see how far I get. I have a good ways to go on this project after all, so it will take time.

I finished tilling that garden today so that is done now, and I even managed to sneak in a yard to cut so the zero turn, as well as the Honda, got some use! It was hot, and rumor is, it will be cooler tomorrow and RAIN is coming tonight into tomorrow, more Saturday and Sunday even!

I didn’t do any writing last night, and I am not sure if I will tonight but we shall see what happens. I am looking at old computers, and PDAs and phones, again so maybe a new toy is in order to make me do more writing. That is my excuse at least.

With another hot day, I didn’t do much at all. I did some more of the garden I started yesterday and moved some cabinets then spent some time in the pool relaxing. The rumor is more rain, and this time a lot, on Friday, so we shall see what happens but we really need it badly.

I did more writing last night as well which made me start thinking of where I will be going with this next. I am going to just keep writing, and I plan on either splitting things up and making a second book or keeping it as one huge book.

Well, I didn’t think I would but I found something to do today! I am tilling, raking, and packing down an old garden for grass seed to be planted. I did one yard today as well, and the plan is to finish this job tomorrow, and move some cabinets for someone else.

I am not sure if anyone else will call tomorrow, so we shall see what happens. I did get Chapter 7 done last night which makes me very happy and I am going to see if I can get some of Chapter 8 done tonight as well. I am still debating where I ended it, and may even add more to the end when all is said and done.

Well, I didn’t get any work today, and I don’t think I will tomorrow either, but we did get about a half inch of rain today so there is hope for something to do soon! I was able to do some cleaning in my room though at least, so I did get something done.

I did some writing last night as well, and I am pretty happy to say that I did about 1000 words. The plan is to do some more tonight as well, so I will see how far I end up getting on that. It will be hot again tomorrow, so I am not sure how well the grass will respond to this rain yet.
