Rain rain go away

and DO NOT come again some other day!  The garlic is mush, the peppers are dying, the petunias are begging, the cats are confused.  At the first drop of rain or clap of thunder they are running to the house.  But today, they are so weird, cautious, unwilling to come inside which is unusual in cool damp weather.  Bud rarely goes outdoors anymore and sleeps all day, but I can't get him to come in either.   Yesterday brought severe storms and much damage (they think a tornado) in Brookfield Ohio, just several miles from us.
 Certainly nothing like the flooding experienced in other states, but this is mid June and we have been in the 60's and much cooler at night.  The ten day forecast is --- thunderstorms and rain every day.  This summer will be very short indeed.

As to why I don't have Mark do the low painting, he has a condition called accessory navicular which is an extra bone on the inside of the foot below the ankle.  When it acts up he needs injections.  Because of painting the walls, bending his foot while being on his knees, he needed another injection.  I don't want him in a position where the foot will be bending more than usual.  It may seem like I'm always painting, but all that talk about it was just that.  Picking colors and trying samples is a very long process with me!!  But I do have the formula now and glad I waited this long.  I am using Moore's White Dove Matte finish with 2.75 yellow tint (gallon) instead of 3.5 in the formula.  For my walls and lighting, it's good.  The north facing rooms may be able to take the full formula since they have less natural light, or I will ask for 3.0 or 3.25.  The trim being a darker white is a distinct difference giving me the colonial vibe, but light enough to feel like a white room.  Happy medium.  I may have liked the solid white, but this is a safer option for me.
Have a great start to your week.
Thanks for visiting.
Oh!  Birthday giveaway coming up but once again, have no idea what!!

I hope Mark's injection makes him feel better ASAP. It's always something, isn't it?
The rain can go away and come back in August when we will be praying for it!

I wish you could send us some of your rain. Can you believe this is the pacific NW? We are having to water lawns, they are already brown and we are just trying to keep them alive and my garden gets deep watering once a week. No rain at all for several days and only drizzle for this week.

Beautiful kitties and petunias.
Love your painting.........sorry about Mark's foot. I hope the injection will help.
Your home is going to be magazine worthy. Love it.
We're having rain in the evening with thunder and lightening to go with it.
Started sanding my deck benches yesterday....slowly but surely will get it finished.
Wish I had more help.....not so.
Thinking of you.
Don't know exact date of your birthday, but wishing you a very happy one and many blessings in the coming years.

Ouch for Mark - I've never heard of that before. And this weather...we are to have rain ALL week. I don't mind the cooler temps - makes for great sleeping - but oy! I feel like we moved to the rain forest or something.

Poor Mark I can only imagine, I have heard of this from a friend, she has many problems and cannot take the injections.
You have actually gotten me to get going on painting our bedroom, I am finally doing it, however I have to take the friggin border down first, UGH.
Happy Birthday Early.

Hi Marly,
Would be more than happy to send you some sunshine and heat for your rain and cool weather!! IF ONLY........sigh!
Those kitties are both so handsome and love that photo!!
Hope the injection helps Mark feel better! That sounds so painful!!!
Take care and hope you have a break from the rain soon!
Heart Hugs~

We too are expecting many cool, rainy days this week. I want some sun! I totally understand you wanting to spare Mark the foot pain. Those injections are painful too and take some time to actually work. Better to rest that foot after an injection.
