9 May: In this mmmooooommmment..

Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)

Clouds are beautiful.
I missed them SO much when I was in Bahrain.

Welcome to the jungle...
We got fun and games!

The top photo is one I took on my way home for lunch.  That beautiful blue sky, those massive clouds.

You don't appreciate clouds until you don't have clouds for an extended period of time.  Seriously.  There were very few times I experienced clouds in Bahrain.  

I knew what was coming with those clouds as I lamented to Teh Bear that I really wasn't looking forward to weed-eating the poop patch that evening.  I even went so far as to describe what I had planned on wearing for this glorious event (my work boots with grocery bags over them, an old set of utilities or coveralls, gloves, and swim goggles (since I don't own safety goggles).  He did point out how I seemed to be very worried about what I was going to wear for just weed eating.  I've heard about how messy it is though, I needed to be prepared.

As I was walking out of work, I stopped to talk to the guy that was on duty.  While standing there, I saw it lightening and heard it thunder.  I watched it start to drizzle, then start to pour.  I got a shower as I walked to Yurtle who was parked at the far end of the parking lot.  I texted Teh Bear on the way home exclaiming how I no longer had to face the demons that evening.

I tried to get Phil to go out to the poop patch for a photo, but it was raining and he's not a big fan of that.

PS.  I got the hummingbird feeder last week.  I'm not even sure that any hummingbirds are using it.  I need to change the juice inside, but the yard is just unholy.  I even feel bad for Phil who has to dodge his own bombs...  Maybe tomorrow?
