Rainy Monday

We had strong winds all morning then the rain came with a punch.
The result was that my street was flooded, too close for comfort.
Right now it's all sunny and friendly, but man, I had to get out with my little rake and drag all the tree branches, leaves, papers and one or two confused cats and dogs, out of the curb's drain, so the water could go.
I was a bit tired and annoyed, and had Haiti on my mind. If a tiny rain can do this here, I just wonder of all the effort people have to do to clean and rebuild their town. Let's keep praying for them. May they be able to relocate, rebuild and restart. And that all the help and food really gets delivered timely to the people in need.
If you donate money, make sure is to a real help institution, not some fake online thing.


  1. It's been raining here on and off.I think they said it was going to be about 2 inches of rain. My thoughts too are with Haiti and it's peoples. I watched Larry King and he raised over 5 million tonight. Way to go.
    See you for now. Have a great week.

  2. We are raising money at our school to give to the Red Cross. If every child in our county gives a dime it will be $9,000.00 and if every school board employee gives just one dollar it will be $12,000.00. A little can add up fast. My doll is ready, now I need to finish my journal.

  3. Yes , you are right. The pictures of Haiti are terrible.
    The people there are dying an s we complain about the weather.
    We should be thankful, for what we have.
