sunday

we had a fabulous rainstorm yesterday. it blew in from the northwest and dropped at least an inch in about an hour. i went out for tea with a friend and we watched the streets become rivers. rain blew in the tea shop door, it was blowing so hard.

when our arid climate suddenly transforms into the tropics, it's weird and wonderful. my yard, normally dirt/sand/rock, has become a muddy quagmire. this makes the kitchen the mud room. there are towels strewn all over to hastily wipe human/dog feet as they come in from the outdoors. even with this precaution, there are pawprints decorating my bedspread (the cat comes in the window), the floor, the rugs, etc.

good thing i'm not a neat freak. the house is actually in pretty gross shape right now. housecleaning, never a strong point, has taken a back seat to emotional excesses. but this is the best day yet.

Girlfriend, it took me along time to get over Gill. I have had a feeling for a year that things weren't right. Back in April I decided I just wasn't going to talk to him any more. That really did last until just this month.

Time really does help.

Hugs coming to you from MN.

BTW-I have a new blog so just click on my name and you will find us.

I love, love , love a good drenching, thundering storm.. LOVE it!

It washes clean the air.. the flowers, the streets, and if you let it.. sometimes helps to wash away some of the emotional crud..

maybe you let it a little?

muddy floors are a small price to pay...

glad this is a little better of a day.. and don't worry about housecleaning oddly enough it is very patient and will wait until you get to it...
