Rainy Days and High Water

Hi friends!

It's a good thing God put instructions for building the Ark in the Bible, because we may need one!

It rains almost every single day down here lately.  The lake is up so high that you cannot get a boat under the bridge anymore.  Jerry and I just took a drive to go check it out.  Shocking how high the water is after years of a drought and areas of the lake being dry enough to walk across.  The water may come up over the main highway out of town going East.  We hear it has happened before, but that was over 20 years ago.

Doug and Terry keep their boat at a dock down at the marina.  The bridge to the marina is totally under water, and the only way Doug and Terry can get to their boat is to swim or have another boat take them to it.  The marina and the Cafe are closed, of course, and that is terrible on Memorial Day weekend.  I feel sorry for the owners and the employees.  We have issues at our store but it will NEVER be under water!!!

I have pictures to show you, but they are upstairs and I'm not going up there.  I'm already in my bed keeping warm.  Jackie and Josie are absolutely SOAKING WET.  It has been raining all day, and at times POURING.  It is a good thing they are half golden retriever, and they love water.

Doug and Terry are in England with our preacher and his wife.  They are with Andrew Wommack for graduation ceremonies at his bible college there.  There are meetings also that Doug and Terry manage the tape tables at.  They are really dedicated to our church.  They had to pay their own way there and back.  I hope they have a really good time.

I'm working on a NEW STYLE I made up with my Sure-fit Designs.

It will either be WONDERFUL or AWFUL.

I will let you know how it turns out.

I'm trying to do something with fringe since it seems to be all the rage right now.

Peggy actually made something with fringe in one of her new videos.  Think I'll go back and check that out.

Mine is knit with a wild print.  I'm making pants to go with it.

Be back soon -- maybe tomorrow.

Hugs, Joy



  1. Yep, know about the rain--same happening down here in north central Texas. My donkeys have been asking about a large boat as they slosh through the pasture. I'm ready for some nice long sunny days!

  2. Hi

    Southern California will be happy with rain. We got here three days ago from Hawaii. Eveything is dry, our little patch of lawn is sandy brown(we get penalize if we water it).
    I am praying for rain, not too much at one time.

    Can't wait to see how the fringe turn out.

    Thanks for sharing
