Flood Warnings...

I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying..

Right now we are under a flood warning here in many parts of Branson.  
The Dam was opened and for the next couple of days there will be more water
 than we need all over Branson.  Luckily we live in a fairly elevated part of the city. 
 Many will/are not so fortunate.  Both hotels will be fine as well.  

The hotels are  in the middle of town.  I was told by many residents living at 
Almost Home that our hotel has never flooded.  Hope it holds true again.

The rain is getting pretty boring here.  Not much to see and to do but get wet. 
 Yes, I like the rain, but it is not so much fun when we have to be running in,
 and out all the time.  Both Arvid and I are not the type to stay seated 
in our offices. We have to be out doing something, 
cleaning something.  Just how we are.

Tony has planted a few tomato trees here at Almost Home.  I am trying to get
 the tenants to start a little garden.  Keeps them busy and happy to be doing something,
 and best part is that everyone will be able to benefit from it.  Fresh tomatoes
 and some other vegetable...sound good.  Definitely what I would
 be doing if in Florida, but here it seems just right. 

Yesterday Arvid brought me one of his plants from his hotel.  Poor thing
 was almost dead, but I have nourished it to health already.  Simple to 
grow and to care for.  Many years ago I had the same plant in California.  

Some 20 years now, and it is still doing great in the home of my 
dear friend Anna.  I am not a lover of growing stuff, but when I
 do do it; it seems that they love me and everything grows.

It has been cold.  Allergies still acting up.  Both Arvid and I 
are taking all kinds of precautions to NOT get the cold.

The early hours of this mornings all you saw was lightning, 
and heard thunder and heavy rain beating down on the roof of our home.  
Strange that the roof did not cave in.  Hopefully when we 
get to the hotels everything will also be good.  

Happy Saturday all.  Stay indoors if you can and
 enjoy listening to the rhythm of the falling rain.

Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.
Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book...
