Rain... welcome here

I didn't realise how much the dry weather had been affecting my psyche until the rain set in on Saturday night. I have been suffering insomnia (and although I would love some extra hours in the day, those extra hours awake thanks to being unable to sleep really are a waste) which I think may have been partly brought on through worry about water or lack there of really. Much like those going through flooding rain right now thinking the rain will never end, when it has been dry for so long, it feels like it just might never rain again. I am happy to say that we have had a good soaking and my thoughts have lightened considerably.
 
 
So with tanks filling and it being too wet to do anything outdoors except the essentials (just a few days ago it was because it was too hot outdoors ??), some relaxing has been on the agenda. Crocheting a pin cushion, sewing, playing board games (not by choice), reading and just generally taking it easy. Back to routine tomorrow though, school is in. 
 
 
 
And some advice to myself. If it is rainy weather and you are baking for the school/ work lunchboxes. Make a double batch elsewise there will not be any for said lunchboxes.
 
Hope all of my blogging friends are safe and sound in the extremes that seem to be spread far and wide.

We too have received some lovely soaking rain this weekend. So glad it's just enough for the gardens and not flooding like QLD/Coastal NSW.

No rain here Tracy, we miss out again. Our tanks are low, so hopefully we get some soon. I am so glad you got some though :)

That looks like a lovely spot to sit and knit :)

We are in for a cool week but I don't think there is much rain forecast. Our tanks are low too, might have to take it easy with the laundry, doing bigger loads less often. That slice looks good - I plan to make some Anzacs and chocolate cup cakes later in the week for more visitors next weekend. We had a great long weekend but it was quite tiring.
School holidays seemed to drag on forever this year, even though I don't ave school aged kids anymore!

I know what you mean Tracy, I hadn't been sleeping well either, and then I didn't sleep well when I thought the rain would never stop and then when the power went out and I worried about the freezers full of meat, but now that the rain has stopped, the sun has come out, the grass has started growing, and our dairy cow just looks so happy out there eating, I feel better! I think I will sleep now!

glad you had much needed rain, but not too much. Oswald was quite well behaved when he passed through here last week, but got pretty out of control once he headed down to the southern part of QLD>

no rain here really..........we are so dry and yes like you say it does affect how you feel......especially when your life depends on it.........it's very depressing driving out in the paddocks with everything running up to you looking for food..........enjoy the rain........
