Hooray for water or Baby grass and toes continued...

July 8 ~ WATER
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last week I sang praises to the sun for its role in helping my baby grass to grow. Well this week my shout out goes to its counterpart the beautiful, refreshing, life giving ~ da, da, da, da.... WATER!!! Just look at how much my baby grass has grown this week thanks largely in part to this wonderful element.



My backyard is actually starting to look green. I'm so happy. Thank you water.
And I also thank you for your ability to get things....



CLEAN!!!
Look at the mess I made while painting yesterday. The mess was actually much worse than this. I accidentally dumped paint into my lap and it soaked my favorite painting pants, my legs and my foot. My pants were dripping so I quickly took them off, but I couldn't stop painting (I was in a zone) so I just continued to work in my skivvies. Marlee came in and said, "Um, mom, don't you think you should put some pants on?" Alright, alright. I got some pants on, but I didn't have time to clean my foot so this is how I walked around all day. But thanks to my good friend water all will be made clean again (except for my favorite painting pants, not even water can save those~ boo, hoo).


And I couldn't complete a post about water without recognizing it as my favorite drink in the whole wide world! Ahhh! There's nothing better!

That grass is coming in very nicely. I am a pretty messy painter, so I am always grateful for water after a day of painting.

You're gonna have a golf course before you know it! So sorry to hear about your painting pants! I had a good laugh, tho, imagining you painting bottomless. HA!

You are patient. The grass looks great! I too would like to know what you are painting. You will have to post a picture of that.

I love the grass...we planted our backyard just 2 years ago and it is as thick as carpet...love it!

I am so sad about your pants...but can relate about being in the zone and not being able to stop...too funny!

Rachael said...

I usually paint with out pants on. Less to get messy...I can clean paint off my leg but not my pants!

You should share what you were painting. That is a wonderful shade of green.

First of all who are all these people on your blog. Second as I just learned (or relearned) in Microbiology water is not a element it is a molecule made up of two elements Hydrogene and Oxygen. Third the grass looks great.

P.S. go to Chris' blog and comment. It's great.
