Drip Drip Drip

I love fountains. They make me feel relaxed and receptive and completely Zen in my mind and in my heart. So when I found this gem tucked into the corner of a Zen Garden, I just had to stand there for a moment and admire it. That was before we ended up with so much water and cleanup from our torrential rains that I got really sick of water in general.

Today we have had a sump hole and sump pump installed into our basement. This should help tremendously for keeping the water levels in our basement at a minimum. I am looking forward to having a dry path through my counseling room again. The carpet will definitely need to be replaced, but now I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. It is not a train. It is actually a light. I can see it, right there, shining brightly and offering hope. Ahhhh. Yes....the Light!

Have you ever noticed how things sometimes go in threes? This time it was rain, then flooding, then renovations. I think I can handle this. I have all the confidence in the world that I am going to see the end and that I will, as a result, have an even more beautiful environment in which to work and live.

Blessed Be

The sensual sounds of a fountain - lovely; the torrential rains we've been experiencing in our typically dry environment, not so! Oh, this fire elemental yearns for the hot dry summer days of the prairies she grew up on!

Ah yes, water in the hold.
Join the club! Ain't it fun?
We have the pump running steadily in basements of two houses right now, and the houses smell musty, but at least we're still in our houses, unlike many, so we can count ourselves fortunate.

Fountains are wonderful--but all that rain you're having is crazy! Good luck with the renovations, and I admire your positive attitude (hopefully, it's contagious). Here, we're dry as a bone and 100 degrees! I actually like hot weather, so that's a good thing, but a few drops of rain would be nice for the plants.

Okay folks! You heard it right here...let's send a few of these drops southward to Riverwolf's area of the world. They need it more than we do right now. ;-)
