Q. How do you end a drought?

A. Have Ray and Anthea build a!

Seriously, it has barely stopped raining since they did the site cut two weeks ago. The block is looking a little like a mini lake (OK maybe not that bad...but you get the idea). The slab was meant to go in this week, but nooooo it rained and it really hasn't stopped and doesn't look like stopping for a while yet. Now for the past few years I have not complained about any rain we have had. In fact, regardless of what was happening I have thanked the Lord above for ANY rain he has sent our way...but this thanks are a little half hearted. I am glad we are filling up the dams, but slightly disappointed about the fact that nothing will happen with the house until that slab gets laid...oh well....maybe next week?

On another note.....we are looking forward to going out tomorrow night. Ray and I will be dolled up to the nines for a black tie ball we are attending. Stay tuned for some pics....nice ones I hope!

Oh have so much fun at the ball! That sounds amazing!!!! How fun! Sorry about the rain. That always seems to happen when you are ready to make a major change. My parents finally went to do the patio and low and behold the rains came! Can't wait to see pics of the house and your black tie gala!

What a bummer! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the rains will ease and you can see some progress on your house. I've always wanted to go to ball...have a wonderful time!

Hope that rain ends soon. Doesn't that always seem to happen when you start big projects like building a home...something uncontrollable gets in the way. By the way, love Collin Raye, I saw him in concert once back in the 90's.
