Philip called from Indiana a few minutes ago to tell me how lovely the weather is there today. He is sitting in Lou Ann's back yard reading, in the sunshine. It's been raining here for a week and a half and we're not expecting a break until Thursday. For a person who hangs their laundry outside to dry that is a very serious state of affairs. Frank and I are wearing outfits we haven't worn in years....and for good reason. Actually, with the drought we had last year, the rain is most welcome, even if we do have to roll up our pantlegs, take off our shoes and wade in the driveway to the kitchen steps. It reminds me of when our boys were small and I taught them to wade in puddles. Does that make me a bad mother? Anyhoo...the flowers will be blooming soon enough and the sun shining on the cedars wet with ra
indrops sparkling like diamonds.
