twas the night before....

Twas the night before hiking, when all through the night,
Rain fell hard and landed with might.
The noises woke us up from our silent dreaming,
Off the roof and down the gutters the water was streaming.

The cats were nestled snugly in our bed,
Norman stretched out lying on my head.
Me in my pajamas and Joe in the buff,
Slowly drifted back to sleep strangely enough.

The cat feeders woke us up with their usual clatter,
Causing the kitties to quickly scatter.
We arose from our bed and looked through the blinds,
When doubts of going hiking entered our minds.

The ground was soggy and full of puddles,
Sure to make Eno full of struggles.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Some friends to join us, we must persevere.

We started our hike and moved pretty quick,
Even though the trail was muddy and slick.
We hiked the hills and down by water,
The clouds kept us cool and it didn’t get much hotter!

We ate lunch on some rocks and cleaned our feet in the stream,
Turning out to be a great day we would soon deem.
Back to the car after 4 miles,
We enjoyed the hike and were nothing but smiles.

So the next time you think the day may be washed out,
Don’t cancel your plans or try to back out.
But go ahead and enjoy the day,

For the good Lord will bless you without delay!

lovely water - eh?  I guess that's what happens when you get 3/4 inch of heavy rain within a few hours...

perfect spot for a lunch break by the lovely brown water - but dry rock!

seemed like an appropriate Dove chocolate candy statement for a hike

come on people - ugh photographers - haha!

Mary broke the Dove rule...

rock climbing success...?

Proof that I'm here!

10,000 steps requires two thumbs up!
