Rain, rain, go away....and take the flippin' mud with you!

Not sure about your little corner of the world, but down here in Hotlanta, things have been a hot was 70+ degrees last is at least our 947th day of cold & rain.  Seriously.

Normally, in January, we get less than an inch of rain for the month (that's about 2 1/2 squintometers for those of you Brits playing our game at home).  Today is January 17th - just a tad over half-way through - and we've had almost 4 1/2 inches (way more than a handful of squints for you limey types) and more yet to come.

There's mud in our driveway.  The lovely brick-red Georgia clay kind that they really should use as tattoo ink because nothing - no, not even your Aunt Maude's secret scrub - can get it out.  There's red mud all over the kids' shoes.  I think our dog used to be mostly white.  I think we really should look at investing in more sailing classes...maybe convert to the cubit system of measurement, gather a few more animals......anybody seen a rainbow lately?

The good news is that we've spent lots of inside time together.  The even better news is that we've all survived far.  Not totally sure what tomorrow holds for the muddy dog and our pale pink carpet.......but we'll see.

On a brighter note, one of my fave digi designers (and fave people), Liv Esteban has created a new set of awesome for you:

Ahhhh.....that's better.  Some sand, some surf, some SUN - oh, how I long to see the sun.  Breathe....summer is only 153 days away....that's about 11 fortnights for all Her Majesty's subjects....and about 152 many days for me today.

So - send warm & sunny thoughts....and I'll go see if I can round up some gopher wood.....
