Moist & Mossy

Central Illinois has gone beyond record-breaking, in terms of rainfall for the season.  We have surpassed wet to soggy and are fast approaching sodden.  It isn’t often I use the term SODDEN; I’d rather not find it so very appropriate.

Our shop is preparing for a spring promotion on Saturday, and I am finding it difficult to clean my shop patio for the event.  It is filled with water at the moment with more to come before the weekend.  The water will not stop me from bringing spring arrangements and sale prices to the shop, but I make use of the patio to display markdowns and new furniture and wanted to prepare it beforehand. 

Perhaps I will be able to do it very early Saturday morning.  Last minute prep can be exciting.  Besides, if I set up too early, everything would sprout.
