Caffeinated Randomness: Spring Rains...

Caffeinated Randomness fits me so well...every Friday! It's hilarious...any other day, I'm not sure I could be so random. Hey, I heard that snicker!! Okay, first cup of coffee *slurp*....

I don't particularly like rainy days. I know, I'm probably not alone there, right? Anyhew, I was just kind of struck by how Spring rains are so purposeful. Yes, yes...all rain waters the earth...yeah, I know. BUT Spring rain...washes those little red pods off the trees so the leaves can spread out and flowers can bloom. It washes away all the winter salt and gunk. (Yes, gunk is a word!) It wakes up the froggies and fishes by riling up the ponds and lakes. It probably wakes up the worms too...to feed all those early robins!

Oh, before I forget *GASP*....my Loverbrains is a wonderful, genius!!! Our washing machine is fixed. Yeah, happy little Bobbi dance! Now, I get to tackle all the mountains of laundry!! Er, yeah....hahaha! Thanks to all who prayed. I prayed all day yesterday after the part came (and I practically hugged the FedEx man) that I'd have a proper attitude if the part did not work. Like I said before...this was a big lesson in trusting him...and HIM! But, praise the LORD, He allowed the part to be "plugged in" within a half hour...and SPIN *warp speed*...it WORKS!!!

Tonight is a date night *I know could this just get anymore randomly exciting?*...I'm so excited. I already have my clothes picked out. With battening down the hatches...we really need to get out! Italian food...and maybe Cheesecake for dessert. Ummmmm...

I guess I'll wrap up by randomly saying that it's gonna be sunny today...but a high about 20 degrees lower than our usual lately. So, the Sweet Boobahs will be after me all day to go outside and play. They'll think I'm being mean when I say it's too cold. I'll hold them off until after naps...when the sun hits the backyard and raises it about 10 degrees. Then, they'll go outside...and their little noses will run...and they'll complain about being cold. No, I don't have ESP...just BTDT. Incidentally, BTDT appeared in my comments lately...and it took me three days to figure out what it meant! HAHAHA!

All my love to you chiccies...here's hoping your weekend is filled with random love and funtimes!!

I don't like rainy days unless I'm in a quiet mood. Then I like to snuggle up on the couch w/ tea and a good movie. But today ... when I have to go to work... not happy w/ the rain!!!!

I am not fond of rainy days, either, though I know we need them and I know (both by faith and because I have seen it when flying!) that the sun is up there behind the clouds and will shine again.

So glad the washer is working again!

Love date nights -- have fun!

Had to think for a minute about BTDT, but I got it. :-)

You asked about the Open ID thing. It does have that option here on your comment section, but it also has the option to just put in one's name and url, which I like better, so that is a good set up -- each is available for whoever likes to use whichever one.

On Wordpress they have a "Search" widget that we can just add on the sidebar in our dashboards. I am not sure how it could be added on other blog venues.

I just had to look up what BTDT meant online! How funny!

Have a great date night! I know what you mean about the day - we were so confused when we ventured out! I had everyone in short sleeves and light jackets. Oh well. BTDT. HA!

I am so glad your washer is fixed!

I am not a fan of rain right now. I have loved it always but oh my goodness it rains more than we see the sun! We have had at least three rainy days every week for months. Of course it is a blessing. Our lakes and creeks and rivers are full :)

Enjoy your date night!

Have a wonderful weekend.

I had to look up btdt. I say it, but I've never abbreviated it. I don't think I would have come up with that. I was going completely different directions for the couple of minutes before I finally googled it.

Oh, and btdt on the washer, more than once. I despise the washer I have now, but am too cheap to buy another one. And for now anyway, it's working.

I love rain as long as I don't have to be out in it.

My hubby and I will be going out for a date "day" this week. We celebrated our 11th anniversary this past week. We have to hold off going out for our anniversary until my hubby's next day off from work.

I'm looking forward to spending some time just with him!

Hope you have a great week! And congrats on the washer getting fixed. Have fun catching up on laundry. :)
