A Long List of Nothings

The past week has seen little progress on Flat Top Mountain:
-- A total of about 6 inches of rain fell over three days. Our massive front yard fire pit became a pond, and our local creek washed over our driveway for a good 24 hours.
-- The hunt for Nan's new (used) car took us to Knoxville and the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, but to no avail.
-- Our fourth (or is it fifth?) attempt to get Tennessee driver's licenses failed, this time due to long lines at the DMV that exceeded Mason's patience.
-- The wet weather meant Mason couldn't get under the house to work on getting that running water to the bathroom.

As Mason just said to me, "You name it, we didn't do it." But the weather forecast is for 68 degrees tomorrow and the next seven days it's expected to be in the 60s and 70s, with lows no worse than 48, so it sounds like spring has arrived. And trees -- dogwoods, cherry, magnolias -- are blooming everywhere

... so we can't let ourselves get too down about one week in a continuing series!!!

  1. Well ... maybe this is the universe's way of telling you that you just had to slow down a bit. Right? Otherwise, it's all looking pretty damn glorious. and the tree blossoms are making me weep (and NOT with joy; with envy!).
