So it stopped raining. It rained for three days straight and today it stopped. Rain is good and the garden needed it. Funny thing is we have had such hot dry temperatures for most of April now May is turning outto be colder than average and wet. We had to put the heating back on.

The bad thing about the weather is bored inlaws. And I am not a good entertainer of people. Having been on my own ( with Marcus) but duringthe days on my own I have become a fairly anti social solitary creature so having two extra folks in the house that require my attention is an interesting experience to say the least. I don't quite know what to do and I feel bad if they are not happy, but even I cannot change the weather.

Still all in all the visit has been nice so far. It's just a difficult adjustment for me sometimes. Plus I am sooooo pmsy it's not funny. This includes the full meal deal, headaches, back aches, funky heart beats and blood pressure ups and downs. Gotta love the hormone dance.

On a good note the roses in the garden are all more or less doing good. The ones we moved seemed to have survived the move okay and are beginning to get back to the business of growing. The ones that are established are blooming like crazy, much to the envy of my father in law. The roses love the soil down here and it seems they love the garden mostly as well. So lots of buds and blooms which is just gorgeous to look at.

Not sure what is on the agenda today. If the pms headache will go away that would be great and maybe I can get back to some semblance of feeling normal once I get my period - yippie!!!-The allergies have all calmed down a bit thanks to the cool and damp weather. This is a good thing.

The scrolls are coming along nicely. I got all the gilding done and have now started on the painting part which is for me the fun part. Will post images after the event.

apart from that not much to tell.

life toodles along... you know how it goes.

until then, be excellent to each other.

    I wish you could send us some rain!! surprisingly we had a few spots today...Oh My God! what's that wet stuff? Oh wikipedia says its called rain..go figure..the drought still continues here..we're saving shower water to use on the few house plants that haven't died yet.
