It's Lovely Weather for Ducks They Say...

Quack!

Translation: Good morning!

Quack Quack?

Translation: How're you doing?

Quackety-quack quackers. Quack?

Translation: I'm feeling pretty well. What makes you ask?

She did it again! Kim. She sent me another beautiful photo of *her swans making the sign of the heart. Believe me,  it's much more lovely than this photo of her photo.


Now that John and I have put in a lake, I'm sure that the swans will feel right at home!

~Swan Lake~

Wonder how large it'll be when the rain ends on Thursday. Hmmmm, perhaps we'll be able to put in a dock.

Quack! Have a great day!

Love Vee

  2. How much rain have you gotten? Do you have the usual - as we have in the midwest - too much spring rain and wishing for it in August?

    You're being a very cheerful duck!

  3. Six inches over the weekend. More in one Saturday than an entire month of normal rainfall. Lots of flooding going on all over the state.

  5. For one second, you had me thinking, oh that must have been a while ago....then I saw the photo.....wow. The swans would feel right at home. So nice of Kim to send you another photo. xo

  10. Now let's see... How about a wee little foot bridge, from the road to beside the tree? Wouldn't that be cute?

    -chuckle-

    Mmmmm, you are NOT chuckling, I fear.

    Nope, you are not chuckling...

    Really, nothing to chuckle about! You are getting hit with excessive rain, in your area. -sigh-

  11. We saw a lot of full ponds and ditches in Georgia as we traveled through the countryside. Even this part of Florida looks well watered right now. I hope you get some sunshine soon. You're starting to speak in strange languages! Quack!

  12. It's really good you guys took your adventure when you did. I think you need a rainy day indoor change of scenery too -- I would definitely be having cabin fever!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well QUACK! That's not nice at all Vee. I guess that system is sitting over Maine and southern Nova Scotia and it's missing us. We're getting very gusty NE winds and gray skies but no rain (maybe a shower). I hope it passes soon so you can dry out. Hugs, Pam

  14. This might be a fine time to invest in a boat! Here's hoping you stay high and dry...and still manage to smile...until the sun returns.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's some serious rainfall. If we had only a portion of that, our natural grasses would be astounding. I hope you have some good books to tide you over!

  16. As of right now I will quit complaining about the showers forecasted for us this week, the ones that would have kept me from being outside in my garden.
    I bet you are taking advantage of this and finding some great creative projects!! ~smile~
    Hugs,
    Sue

  17. Might as have have fun with the rain. It is not raining today, yet, but it is cloudy as heck. Our tomatoes need sun, sun, sun.
    Have a good week dear sista.

  18. Oh dear, you really are having the rains! Well a sense of humor helps, while you live in an ark.

  19. I loved the Ohio weather. It rained nearly every day I was there excepting for three HOT days at the beginning. I loved the rain but then I never get it here. So when I can, I love it. And the trees and the green. Lovely to see it all again.

  20. Yikes! What about a ski-boat? Or a barge - your family would love that!

    Sorry you're getting a deluge. Wish that you could send some our way. Can't last forever, tho. I hope it doesn't inspire the mosquitos...

    Cute new pic of you, Vee! Hey, at least you're getting lots of INSIDE stuff done????? :)

  21. I sure wish I had something to quack about. Well, maybe not That Much rain! We haven't had enough rain here to do any good in...well, I can't remember when. Oh well, hopefully some day. Meanwhile, I'm watering flowers and the veggie garden is just at a standstill. The grass is turning brown. It just seems that we either get too much or not enough...where is that happy medium?
    Hope you have a good day in spite of the wet weather!

  22. Yes, if it weren't for the city sewers my front yard would look the same, Vee We have had a very wet spring here in the NE. I'm sure all the reservoirs are now full, which is a good thing. I appreciated not having to water my vegetable garden ... but now I'd love the return of sunshine!

  23. Oh my goodness, you certainly are getting a lot of rain!!
    I hope you get a sunny day soon!!!

  24. Time to go shopping for a boat! Do you know how many inches of rain you have had?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, I just read through the other comments and find that you have had six inches over the week-end! That is a LOT of rain!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just hope we don't have to start singing Way down upon the Swanee River...
    Goodness that is a lot of rain. I can't believe you are still in the deluge there.
    Which B do you not like? the one that says Posted by?
    That you can change.

  27. Hi Vee!

    Tee Hee Hee - you quack me up!!

    We could use a little rain, send it our way!!

    Oh my goodness, the picture of the swans was just gorgeous, I'm tempted to order me a print... :0)

    Everything looks so green and beautiful there . . . I just love your new pond!!

    Hugs,

  28. Oh Dear! Looks like you might need that dock soon!

    We could use a little rain... not that much though!

    Beautiful swan photo!

    Quack, I mean Blessings!

  29. Look how beautiful and lush and green your lawn is.......*heavy HEAVY SIGH.....

  30. I am fully convinced that a deluge for 40 days and 40 nights that covers the entire earth could completely flood it. Well, at least that is what the Bible says happened and I totally believe it.
    These days of rain that make a mess of things remind us of these things in our world's history.
    So glad for the rainbow!

  31. I heard Maine was really getting the rain...(the rain in Maine falls spainly in the...) no that's Spain. Well anyway, I thought of you! Have a nice day! Now I have the strangest desire to watch My Fair Lady!
    :D

  32. If it makes you feel any better, we once got 48 inches of rain in a weekend in Houston.
    Honest!
    And it is 95 degrees here in Salt Lake today. Shall we figure a way to even these situations out a bit? Whew..

    ReplyDelete
  33. We seeded the backyard with grass today....and then it started raining. Perfect timing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Quack, quack, quack (raining like cats, dogs, ducks, and elephants here as well).

    Don't float away!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't know about swans moving in, but you and John just might develop webbed feet!

    ReplyDelete
  36. send some OF THAT WET STUFF my way - it's dry dry dry here..wink!
    hugs

  37. We're pretty water logged here to. Rain then sun, then rain then sun, and so on today...

    Does roundup only kill weeds and poison? What if it gets on other plants?

  38. Don't forget to put on your wellies when you go out! =)

    The mountains keeps breaking up our rain as it comes across, so my flowers are quite jealous. As long as the extreme heat will lay low a while longer we will be able to deal with it. I'm not looking forward to the heat of our first South Carolina summer. At all.

    Maybe it'll dry up for you soon and you will be able to enjoy a little bit of summer!

    Happy Monday to you!!

  39. the weather has been so weird this year. It has been cold here but thank goodness no flooding. I have had trouble in the past commenting on your blog but recently not so much. If I start a new blog with blogger I have to delete my account, losing my info, and then start over. it is upsetting to me that google added my. Gmail account with my blog when decided I had added to many links and photos. I was willing to pay the extra five or even ten dollars a year but not a monthly fee. I will continue to read your blog or as long S google allows and will miss blogging with you. You have been a true bloggy friend!

    Surely you have a rubber duck you could play with in that lake!
    Come on, take off your shoes and get out there in your bare feet and splash around. Live dangerously
    Just think how you can have the whole neighborhood abuzz.

  41. So much rain...we have had a lot here but not nearly enough to cause flooding....

    Stay safe and dry!

  42. Can't bellevue you've had so much wet weather! We've been 64 to 74 degrees all week, blue skies with billowing clouds and just a hint of rain now and then. it's been really beautiful. The weather channel keeps telling us were raining, though! Weird .

    Just remember .. It has to stop at some point, so have your boots ready!
