We Have a Winner!

Buenas Tardes!

Below are a few photos Senor took of the last four evenings. We could see the clouds building and feel the wind picking up speed each of the first three nights, but then, it would all come to a swift halt, the crickets would begin to chirp, the birds came back to feed, our excitement waned and Cookies yawned with boredom.










Then BINGO! Last night we hit the jackpot. The wind beat the clouds into a frenzy, the rain fell as Zeus cracked his whip and the horses thundered across the sky.
The cat scurried in under the bed, the towels went down at the doors and we hid in the kitchen tool room after being caught off guard.

When we are not waiting for rain, we are busy with our new discovery.
World Cup on the computer, Live.

So we are getting in two of the morning games and we are thrilled. For a few days we were reading it on Fan House, play by play.


Then a friend sent us a link and we are so surprised that it has worked for four days now.
I am always paranoid about these things, especially since my Playlist was taken away and then, did I tell you AOL took away my free radio? I just about lost it when that happened. I was in the middle of listening to Dallas Master Gardener, Neil Sperry and waiting for Delila, the food goddess of Houston. Then poof, it was all gone with the blink of an eye.


So, we hope this good live soccer connection stays with us through the finals.


Of course, it means very little is being done on the casa......................but, World Cup only comes once every four years.


If I were to ask Senor to take a photo of today's late afternoon sky, you would see the same thing as in the picture above, but the sky is even darker. So, on this, the first official day of the rainy season, Dia de San Juan, we expect to see more rain.


Glenn Ian, you guessed the 25th for the day the rain would begin and as they began on the 23rd, You are the Winner of the Contest!


adios! linda lou

Hi Linda! Thank you! I am really honored to win those beautiful ear rings. They are wonderfully special because they are made by a wonderfully special person in addition to being beautiful. Your blogs brighten my days.
