It’s just a little rain …

Arkansas has been in a drought for the past few weeks. We’re still in extreme wildfire danger. So, as you can imagine, our farmers and county officials, as well as the above great egrets, were pretty excited when it began raining last Friday and continued over the weekend.

It always amazes me how a little rain can change Arkansas County’s dry landscape into a flood zone in a short-time frame. My hometown is near Crowley’s Ridge so I’m used to rolling hills. I’m still getting used to the Grand Prairie, which floods easily.

Still, the rain did manage to upset some, such as this House Sparrow. I first noticed the little guy because I thought he was stuck in a vehicle’s grill (see below). Nope, he just flew around the vehicles having a temper tantrum. It was amusing for a bit.

July 17: July’s Photo A Day Challenge – Tools


It’s the little things that help the most sometimes when you are having a bad day. For me, there are two tools that always help brighten my day – some perfume I got from Hawaii and my favorite every day earrings.
