Be Careful What You Wish For
It rained all night. My electricity must have gone out at some point because my clock was flashing on and off, on and off.
I got up and got my trust Timex Expedition with the Indiglo and it told me what time it was.
It was early/late.
It's still raining this morning, coming in waves like labor pains. The wind whips up and drives branches and wind chimes into a frenzy and then it calms down again to just the constant rain falling.
Owen will be here soon. No walking about outside for us this morning. Just running in the house, climbing, munching food and playing with toys. And reading books. And playing peek-a-boo. And kissing. I hope he's in a kissing mood.
Kathleen left after oatmeal and tea to go home to her kids. Her dogs are her kids and she worries about them all night long when she's not with them. They worry about her too. She seemed to be feeling okay and I had a good time with her last night. I hope she's cuddled up now with Maggie and Harry and Bob and a few of the cats too.
I assume her chickens are still in their coop but with Kathleen...well, you never know.
The rain pours. The ground opens its dusty mouth and receives.
