Anyone have a bucket ?
I have the water
The snow is all gone
Why didn't I think
Snow turns to water
Melting and thawing
Looks great on the outside
What is happening underneath the ground is a different story
Water in our basement
A couple of inches here and there
Now I have to pull things out
Let my cellar dry out
Not the end of the world
Like my wife says we will get through this
We had plans with friends
We had plans with other friends the next day
My wife is going
I send my love
First things first
I had to rent a storage bin
Rent a u haul truck to bring it there
I am thinking three or four days to dry out
Then we can move everything back
An expense we didn't plan on
We like the things we have
We had water in the past
Things things were up high anyway
Tiime consumming and physically exhausting
A sad story to tell
Maybe a funnier story later
Going back to moving box by box
Yesterday it rained
It made things worse
The dry stuff became wet
Today is a windy and dry day
Off to a good start
For all you people out there
Wishing you a dry future
So that you never have to deal with water problems
Most of all a fun day
Hopefully you are doing what you love
Because I can't wait to get back to writing about water
It is so different than dealing with water
This moment in time
Gives me a reflection of life
Not always pretty and nice
I honestly believe
Just another lesson that I have to learn
I learn it by exercising
A lot of bending and reaching
I was getting a little belly
I have been meaning to exercise
I have a lot of excuses ot I just forgot
Now I get to work the pounds off
Little by little
Today is just a jump start
Thank you God

Audrey Hunt Each day I continue to dance on with all the beauty and love around me. Little and big surprises throw me off track. I know for years I have laid the track for hundreds of miles in all directions. So the key is to get back on track and go where I want to go. At the same time lay new track on a new journey ahead. Thank you for reading and sharing. Living life this way is one less thing to worry about.

This is the stuff of which life is made. You sure have a way of turning life's little irritations into imaginative poetry. Thank you.

Gypsy Rose Lee We had light rain tonight. I have been clearing out the cellar a few hours each day. Later I am exhausted. Not much time for much else. Thank you for reading and sharing. Hope your day went wonderful.

I say to everything we attempt to do there is at least one setback. If we get over the major hurdle we are up and at them.

What a great attitude for trying times. Not only do you accept and adjust, you encourage others at the same time.

Here I go again. I do what I can to give the best possible me in everything I do. Another challenge I will take on and it can only make me stronger and wiser. Thank you for reading .Your support and encouragement is so greatly appreciated.

Spring in America seem to be slow this year. I've only just began seeing it and yes, we did have some rain. Hope things improve for you. Loving thoughts.

Michael-Milec I took your advice and took small rest pit stops and worked yesterday and today through out the day. Making progress and lots to think about. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

Shyron E. Shenko You made me laugh and forget my current situation. Good cheer is something water can never take away. Thank you so much. Puppy's love to play. Any mess can be cleaned up. It's the laughter that is precious.

Setbacks are problems. Causing problems to say the least. To say " I am sorry" - too late DREAM ON. Won't help. Now, if we are told - and yes we are - that the things are happening for a reason, (never could accept that). You have found a perfect answer to it "Wishing you a dry future So that you never have to deal with water problems.'" Likewise my friend wishing you the same.
Meanwhile, take it easy. Sit down, the frequent brakes, make your best cup of coffee or tee, and let those writing thoughts take spot creating a most needed relaxation.
Yes, the trials makes us wiser, stronger more mature and victorious.
Blessings to you and yours.

Dream on, dreamer that it would be dry today
my little fur boy wants to play
just to let him to go out to potty
is an all day chore
first mop up the muddy paw prints on the floor
wipe off the muddy paw prints on the door
he stuck his paw in the water dish
now it's not fit to drink
now more paw prints on the floor
and a few more on the door
I'll think of this when we have a drought
and remember what the water is all about
