I had this lovely vision of my family walking through the orchard, smiling and laughing as we picked. More laughter as we shared apple cider doughnuts fresh from the bakery. And more laughing as we took a tractor ride through the trees. Be quiet. This is my fantasy. No where was there any whining from my children. Or husband.
What did I get? Rain. For three days straight now. Rain. A little drizzle? That I could handle. But this has been road closing, basement flooding rain. Mind you, I'm grateful I'm not in Texas. They have RAIN down there.
Rain out the back door. Rain out the front door.
Rain on the patio. Rain in the garden.
Lots and lots of rain.
Next weekend? Next weekend my apple picking will happen! Unless it rains.
