Mud


Last night we got wave after wave of storms and a lot of rain fell. It is beautiful today, sunny, no humidity and a lovely breeze. I was out in the garden and noticed a tomato stalk had fallen over so I walked in to tie it back up. I sunk about eight inches into the mud! I couldn't pull my feet out and I was wearing my favorite flip flops and was afraid the strap would break. The only way out was to sit down and scoop the mud away with my hands and pull my feet out. I had to go back in the muck and rescue my shoes. What a mess!!! I have never really understood how quicksand worked...I'm pretty clear on that now! Me and my shoes are all hosed off, thanks to my husband. It made for a pretty big laugh!


His comment was, "If I'd fallen in the mud you would have made me sit there til you went and got your camera so you could blog about it." I'd thought about asking him to get my camera but really wanted to rescue my flip flops. So here is a photo of my clean toes!
Ooooh, and one more thing, this is my 99th post to this blog, so my next one will be 100!!! I am planning a give-away so come back and find out how to enter!

Hi Susan Thought I'd pop by after reading your comment on mine - really like this post and how true about grabbing the camera for most events - my partner is now getting used to it but I think he is still bemused by my need to record things on the blog. Well done for 100 and more posts! all the best Kate
