Sunless Saturday

I am posting two photos today, one for black and white weekend and one for Flowers on Saturday. It has been raining steadily all morn. Not torrential, but a nice calm methodical pitter patter. (such a silly phrase). My husband has gone back to bed after attempting an early morning then cancelled baseball practice and plunking down a dozen dunkin donuts on our cluttered kitchen island. My boys are fighting up a storm. An electrical storm, nearly. It is frustrating and annoying to witness, and nearly impossible to referee as it is never any one's fault and usually everyone is to blame. My poor middle son always seems to take the brunt of the abuse, rarely physical yet often heart wrenching as my oldest and youngest boys join forces against him. Last weekend he threatened to move out. When I called Gabe in and told him what is brother was thinking of doing his eyes filled with tears and he begged him to stay. Donovan didn't want any part of his heart felt apology at this point, but it did make me feel a little better. All was well for about half and hour and then I heard the faint sound of thunder rumbling in the distance. I am trying not to imagine a Summer filled with this drama. Maybe I'll be the one to move out. :)


  1. I often contemplated moving out for the sake of peace and quiet. Wouldn't have worked though - I'd have worried too much! Dramatic trees in your photo.

  2. Love the Foxglove shot - they are so interesting eh?
    Raining steady here today too - but it's nice.....
    Happy Saturday!

  3. Love the black and white, great photos.

  4. we had nice Saturday, but I woke up this Sunday morning to sounds of rain, but it's just the Irish weather, we have one warm day and then you don't know what it will be like the next, I hope the weather will improve soon where you live :)
