Summer days and we need rain!

We have gone almost 3 weeks and really had no rain! When we do get it, it only lasts for a short while. You may have heard about these wild-fires in southern GA and into parts of FL. Well, the fire/(smoke) is so severe and they have not been able to put the fires out yet. So we have numerous mornings where we awake to "fog" but it is SMOKE from the south! You actually walk outside & SEE and SMELL the smoke from south GA. It is like you just had a camp fire in your neighborhood, and the fire still has not gone out. It is very sad!
Last week, we had to keep all the kids indoors on Tuesday. It was an 85 degree day and the smoke was so severe! We did not want to mess with the asthmatic children and be inhaling the smoke ourselves. Being pregnant, it is harmful to me too! So we desperately need the rain and have been banned from water the lawns and flowers during the week. We use to be Tues/ Thursday & Saturday. Now the state law is Odd # houses can ONLY Water from Midnight to 10AM on Sundays and Even # houses do it on Saturdays.
Fortunately my rose bushes are budding and the marigolds that my mom planted for me in March have come back.
We will NOT be at the pool today! To "smokey"! Hopefully tomorrow we will have some better air and be able to enjoy the pool. We got plenty of sun yesterday!
Have a wonderful memorial day tomorrow!
