We had quite a weekend with all of the rain. I think that it was about five and one-half inches or more. I know that the ground is thoroughly soggy. I don’t remember a year where there was so much rain except one where I had to gather the butter beans. It kept raining and raining. Our butter beans were hanging ready to gather. The sun began to shine a little one day, but the rain came back. I had put on my knee boots to wear in the garden. When I went out the mud was almost half way up to the top of the knee boots. If I took a step I was about to lose the boot. It was a struggle to move one foot and then the other. Finally I decided that if I could get out of the butter bean patch of mud I would just let them be for the time being. I figured that if I got stuck in the middle of the patch that no one had the boots to come help me out so I struggled and struggled to get out. I had only a handfull of butter beans and could wait until a sunny day. No more getting stuck in the mud for me. And the rain just needed to hold off back then.

I wanted to tell any of you that have a metal bed rail that perhaps you should put a throw or blanket over it. On the night of July 3 I fainted from my blood pressure getting too low and my heart rate got too low. I was told this by a doctor previously. So when I blacked out my leg hit the rail. When I knew what was happening there was blood all over floor. It was coming out at a fast rate. I began swiping it with toilet paper and applying pressure. I was too far from the phone. My husband was too far from me and could not hear me. Finally I got it under control and wrapped it. It is indeed a very deep cut. It is getting much better though. I just don’t want anyone else to get an injury from the bed rail.

I know of one woman that hurt her leg when she was making up her bed in the morning. It was on the metal bed. She too has put a blanket over her rail.

I looked out tonight at the beautiful moon and the clouds around with the sky showing. It was so awesome! How Great Thy Art! I felt such a blessing from looking at that beauty! It is all God’s creation! We haven’t seen the moon much lately. It is so pretty! Thank you Lord for the rain and for the moon and the sun!
