It’s raining and ya darn skippy I’m happy! I’m happy because the cantaloupe, honeydew and bell pepper seeds that I planted recently will spring soon. I have what they call a “green thumb” and I love gardening. Well…truth is….my rosemary plant recently died but other than that, I’m pretty good at it. I have no idea where I went wrong with the rosemary. Can you help? I can almost taste those juicy, sweet melons this summer. (Take your mind off the sexual stuff please. This blog is G rated) hahaha… The farmers in my area have been praying for rain for a while now. I just wanna do a rain dance. After a beautiful sunrise, the rain came quickly. The sky is now dark and heavy sheets of rain are falling from the sky. I love the sound that’s against my window. It’s so relaxing. I think I’m going to take a nap soon. There is a faint sound of thunder in the distance.
As a child I always wanted to experience a “white Christmas” or be able to ski or sled or build a snowman. I remember on my 8th birthday (July) I wished it would snow. See, I’m from The Bahamas…..yea….that pretty much sums it up right? I’ve never played in the snow. I saw it briefly while shopping in NY but that’s it. 😦 I live in a tropical paradise. I was flipping through the channels the other day and realized that there were snow storms bashing parts of the US. I thought wow, here I am complaining about our 68 degree weather we had the other night. I had on socks, a tam, warm pj, 2 blankets, and my hubby to keep me warm that night. I had to seriously rethink my desire to be in the snow. We are so blessed here to have such lovely weather. It’s like spring and summer time here in the Bahamas 365 days a year. We’ll we do get a hurricane now and again but that’s a thought for another time.
This morning I was awaken by the sound of our teapot whistling. I stretched, got out of bed and headed for the bathroom. I headed to the kitchen to find my husband having tea and a whole wheat sandwich. I peered through the window, the sun was beginning to creep from behind the clouds. It was time to take my husband to work.
From our balcony, I could smell the flowers. The grass was still wet from the dew and it made my toes slippery as I walked to the car. I could hear the sound of bees. Yes, bees. There was a loud buzzing in the air. I told my husband and we realized that every flowering plant had bees on them. They were pollinating the fruit trees and flowers. My husband looks at me excitedly and we both shouted “Spring”. Spring is soon to come and I could hardly wait. The birds are chirping melodiously and the bees are busy at work. I’m anticipating the mangoes this year. They have already revealed their immature selves. I will be patient. Oh and I saw goats grazing today
