Sunday Serenity

I like a nice, cozy day of rain.
I like how it washes all the sand and salt of Winter away.
But there is one side effect of heavy Spring rains I cannot bear.
And if I write about it, it will make me physically sick.
So you have to guess.
UPDATE:  you are right, worm people.  And I am sorry if I have been quiet, but I really am sick from them.  Can't. Eat. Just. Gag.

Uhhh, You are unable to get to the liquor store?

Treasia said...

No clue here. Maybe the loss of new buds and blooms?

Deb said...

we had this rain or 3 days...and needed it desparetly...hmmm...all I can think about is...you cannot run in preparation for your half marathon? ;)

winetipper said...

Clearly the worms. But they bring on the Robins!
I feel similarly about the slugs.

Lisa said...

I was going to say it brings out the blooms and the pollen makes you sick. But I like winetippers answer better and of course I just flat laughed out loud when I read your first response(from Anonymous)

I recall a cell phone conversation that occurred last summer with a friend of mine who will remain nameless...She was walking on her driveway when suddenly I heard the distinct sound of retching. "I gotta go NOW!", she said, "I'm gonna throw up!"

10 minutes later this anonymous friend of mine who I will not name, (but the initials MPM have been associated with her from time to time) called me back. Me: "What the hell happened?!?" Her: "There was an earthworm in a puddle of water." Me: "So?" Her: "What do you mean SO? Doesn't seeing an earthworm in a puddle of water make you want to throw up???" Me: "____________"

Worms make me sick too, so don't feel like you can't talk about. You are safe here with friends.

I will not go fishing if worms are involved.

I live on the beach, therefore...no dirt and no worms.

Ellen said...

We had it last night. Bring on the mold from spring rain - mold allergy sufferers unite.

Debbie said...

Considering I found mold growing in the handle of my sonicare toothbrush yesterday...gag.

I spit coffee on Annie's reply. MPM you generate funny comments!!

I am surprised a teeney little sweet worm makes mama ill. YES, I'm laughing :)

Guessing you never ate the worm at the bottom of the Tequilla bottle?

You can't open the moonroof without your hair getting wet?

Mango Girl said...

If it is in fact worms, NEVER go to Vermillion, SD. I swear that is the worm capitol of the world. They would get in my shoes if I walked in the rain (which I love to do). I don't love worms in my shoes. That still grosses me out to this day. Will probably never go back to Wormillion, SD.

Ellen said...

Now there's and idea to combat your empty nest syndrome - a worm farm.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I never, ever would have guessed worms. I actually save the worms when I see them drowning in a puddle of water. (I really didn't mean to make you throw up with taht last remark, I promise.)

There will be no worms here for Blog Fest. Ants and fiddler crabs, yes, but worms no.

Daryl said...

Buckup .. they'll be gone soon.. meanwhile dont look down ..

Sassy said...

You are funny....worms?????? You just needed MORE sons...

Sorry about the rain...we have a few clouds but nothin' to speak of and it is about 75 degrees...I wish you could just come and hang out here for a while....we never see worms just lizards.

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

So I take it you do not fish..at least not with worms.

Squishy word that worm is.
How about chocolate covered worms???

Ants are better!

Big Hair Envy said...

CBW & I seem to be cut from the same cloth. I, too, rescue the unfortunate earthworms.....they do GOOD things for my soil:)

noble pig said...

We get snails.

Country Girl said...

I hate it when they end up on the sidewalk and get all dry and pebbly and can't get back to the soft grass and ick. I hate that. Now I'm going to be sick.

Stacey Huston said...

Worms..lol.. forgot about your phobia to "them" .. still must teach me how to post the words with the lines through them..lol..just call the robins they will help clean them up..

shara said...

Worms good for the garden... yea... got it. But I too hate the squishy squash of major worm suicide/homicide. Not pretty.

A drowned worm is the best- just not the kind that is found on the sidewalk!

Suz Broughton said...

worms are my downfall too. Nothing grosser than a worm. Spider. I'm fine with that. Snake. whatevs. Worms. (shudder)

My Metabolic Rate is Stuck said...

OMG!!
I'm just catching up from the weekend!

Worms are my WORST NIGHTMARE!!

Don't even like to talk about them! The END!

Shawn said...

Oh, I was going to be sooo gross on this but I will refrain out of respect for your delicate constitution! Bwahahaha
